The Cinetics miniSkates Pro Tabletop Camera Dolly for Phones & Small Cameras is a smooth-rolling, multi-directional mini dolly for smartphone cameras and small camcorders, limited to these because its wheels function to full effect only with lighter loads on them. miniDolly supports up to 11 lbs of weight but works more fluidly with one or several pounds only. You can use miniDolly on a table, on the floor, on a wall, and on pretty much any flat surface and even on some that aren't too flat. The three wheels can be let loose or can be aligned and locked, according to ruler markings on them, to achieve specific rotations.
miniDolly consists of miniSkates and a customer feedback-inspired SkatePlate. SkatePlate attaches on top of the skates and provides a seat for a camera by way of a 1/4" mounting screw. A tripod head or ballhead, however, is best attached instead of the camera. If you attach a camera directly, you won't be able to point it up at all. If you attach a head and the camera on top of the head, then your camera will be movable. A compatible and affordable head is Joby's GorillaPod SLR-Zoom ballhead, which provides full 360° panning and 90° tilt. The ballhead is sold separately. The clamps for installing it come included with the miniDolly.
