The Dana Dolly Portable Dolly System with original style track ends is a heavy duty camera dolly platform that rides on 16 custom modified soft polyurethane wheels that resist flat spotting and use ABEC-7-rated precision bearings providing you with extremely smooth dolly shots. The wheel trucks swivel, allowing the dolly to ride on available straight or curved track, which you must source separately. The manufacturer recommends using standard speed rail or Schedule 80 aluminum pipe of compatible size. The dolly includes two original style track ends, which accept inch and a quarter pipe (standard speed rail) that has an outer diameter of 1.66", and fit into available standard Junior stand receivers. A center support is included for long track runs or when using heavy cameras.

The dolly platform is machined from aluminum and features a standard Mitchell mount including a 2.75" center hole with a machined key way. The included 75mm and 100mm bowl adapters allow you to mount fluid heads with standard 75mm or 100mm leveling balls. The platform incorporates one 3/8" through hole, one 1/4"-20 threaded hole, and one 3/8"-16 threaded hole on each side of the dolly platform for a total of 6 accessory mounting holes. The Dana dolly is designed and manufactured in the USA.

Custom Machined Track Wheels
The key to the Dana dolly's smooth ride are the 16 custom machined track wheels.
  • The wheels are custom made soft, then turned down to be round within 1/1000 of an inch to eliminate the bounce that normal skateboard wheels suffer from.
  • You can park the dolly with 100 pounds of camera and accessories on the track at 100° F for an hour without the wheels flat spotting.
  • Another benefit from the machining the wheels is reduced squeak during use.
  • The wheels are custom modified 16 at a time on a special machine, providing uniformity.

 

Wheel Trucks
  • The wheel trucks can swivel on the dolly, which allows it to ride on straight and curved track.
  • A felt washer separates the dolly platform from the wheel trucks, helping to reduce noise.
  • The included T-Tool features a 1/2, 9/16, and 3/8" ends.
  • It allows you to tighten the wheel trucks using the 9/16th end to suit your taste.
Mitchell Mount
The Mitchell mount features an elongated key way, allowing you to use non standard adapters.
Track Supports
Track supports fit into available standard Junior stand receivers.

    Portable Dolly System with Original Track Ends is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Piece of Equipment This is a great piece of equipment. It is well built and quick and easy to set up. It can accommodate any size camera - not simply a slider for a DSLR. And I have personally used it dozens and dozens of times with a variety of cameras - from the very large (VariCam) to the very small (5DMk3). I have generally been disappointed in the DSLR sliders for not being robust enough and for being a hassle to set up. The Dana Dolly beats them all easily. I feel that there is no comparison. Given its price, it is a fantastic value. It goes out on every shoot. Remember when using this version of the Dana Dolly to make sure to secure the ends of the rails with some sort of stop (I use spring clamps) to prevent the base from accidentally rolling off the end of the rails when moving the unit or adjusting the height.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ONLY Universal Dolly System The Dana Dolly is PERFECT for all cinematic shooters. From DSLR to fully built ARRI Alexa. The dolly is heavy duty, durable, and versatile. You are not committed to a 3'ft or 5'ft pocket dolly. Its designed for 1 1/4 speed rail. I personally have a 10', 6', and 4' sections of speed rail. If I want to go longer I can, if I want curve track...I could if I knew someone with a pipe bender. Nevertheless, this was the best tool I have bought to add motivation to my shots. FAST, VERSATILE, DURABLE, and SMOOTH.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock Solid and Smooth as Glass After spending years working in the feature film industry as a grip and working countless times with the Dana dolly it was time to purchase my own. I couldn't be happier and think that this is the best solution for camera movement in small spaces. The small bumps you'd get from a slider track are absorbed because of the rubber wheels making for a perfectly smooth shot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Smooth, Easy To Travel With -gives you great dolly moves, great soft roller blade type wheels -1.25 aluminum pipe is available from most hardware stores as either conduit or 6' fence post, (wish I would have known that before buying from film tools and shipping which cost $65.) -great investment that you can rent out and not worry someone will mistreat. very durable -bought along with matthews low boy 2 stage stands -2 apple boxes go well also

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dana Dolly - smooth as butter I have purchased different sizes of speed rail so I can have a 4', 6' or 8' move...but if you have a third baby combo to support the center...you can go up to a 12' run. What is great about the Dana Dolly is that it is a breeze to set up and you can use ball fluid heads....from 75mm to 100mm on the device....and the move is exceptionally smooth. For a low cost alternative to renting a full dolly, I highly recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid performer I like the Dana Dolly because I can do beautiful camera moves from a solid platform. The Dolly takes 2 minutes to set up. It is very stabll and I can put my full-sized Panasonic cameras on it as well as my Canon C300.
