The Kessler Crane Pocket Dolly 3 Standard is a 39.5" portable camera slider built as solidly and reliably as all other Kessler products. The Pocket Dolly 3 supports up to 15 lb loads and delivers quiet, consistent, and smooth camera movement just like the previous versions did.

In upgrading the previous version of the Pocket Dolly Standard, Kessler has shaved off about 1 lb of weight, has integrated a cart brake as standard, has built in an accessory lug for use with the optional Kessler crank handle and HD Flywheel, and now provides more options for mounting accessories on the end blocks. The Pocket Dolly 3 Standard offers a travel length of 31" and can be fully motorized with any of Kessler's motion control systems.

The Pocket Dolly 3 Standard is a belt-driven system with ball bearing wheels. It can be used on flat surfaces or mounted on a tripod via 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting threads on the bottom. The slider carriage provides threaded 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting holes for attaching accessories, and the now-integrated cart brake allows you to lock down the carriage for static shots or to prevent back-and-forth movement in transport.

In addition to motion control systems and various other add-ons, the Pocket Dolly 3 Standard also supports the Kessler Parallax, which is a bar that attaches on the side and provides a panning axis that can help you achieve rich cinematic shots.

    Pocket Dolly 3 Standard (39.5") is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as I expected... Okay, basically this is a short smooth-run dolly or slider as they tend to be more commonly called. The build quality is great (as it should be for the price) but I have to say I'm more than a little disappointed with a couple of things. 1) It has an inbuilt crank-handle which seems like a great idea but I challenge anyone to hand crank this and get fluid movement from it. I've found that twirling your finger in the crank disc or just pushing the slide-head is the only way to get smooth movement over more than a few inches. 2) The unit is somewhat fragile & really needs protection when storing and transporting yet it doesn't come with a carry-bag. Sorry, but at this price it should include one. 3) The slide-head needs a lock. What tends to happen is that you pick the unit up & the slide-head rockets down to the low end. If you're lucky your fingers are out of the way Apart from finger mashing my concern is that this could damage the unit. It could easily be fixed with a simple grub-screw lock or some-such. Apart from that it works as promised but to be honest there are much cheaper options that would work equally well as one of the things you're paying extra for with this unit is the hand-crank which, as explained above, doesn't work overly well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice slider Smooth, for perfect gliding a motor would be suggested, but works nice without. We like to use 2 tripods with it, because of its weight.
