Digital Juice DOLLY2-KIT1 overview

  • 1Description

The Digital Juice SlyderDolly Portable Linear Tracking System (40") allows you to capture quick, smooth short-run dolly shots up to a distance of 34.5" (87.6 cm) using camera rigs with up to 30 lb (13.6 kg) optimum weight. It eliminates the need to carry a full dolly system and track to capture the shots.

With a weight of 7 lb (3.175 kg) and a width of 40" (101.6 cm), the Slyder Dolly is easily portable and can be used in small rooms for quick positioning of the camera with relation to your subject. Mountable on different surfaces such as tabletop, ground-level, or tripod, the system offers smooth camera movement on a horizontal, angled, or vertical axis. By pointing the track at the subject, you can move the camera and bring the items in and out of focus. Eight oil-filled bearings, harmonically matched to the custom C channel, ensure smooth movement of trolley unit over the rails.

Using the trolley plate, you can attach multiple accessories such as articulating arms, LCD monitors, microphones, ball head adapters, quick release plates, and high hats to the SlyderDolly Portable Linear Tracking System. The 2-tiered bearing design of the tracking system allows you to attach the trolley unit below the rails for capturing inverted images. An integrated brake/damping system enables you to park the trolley when not in use and also creates variable resistance for smooth slow shots.

Custom extruded high-grade aluminum construction makes the SlyderDolly Portable Linear Tracking System strong and durable.

    SlyderDolly Portable Linear Tracking System (40") is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality design, bumpy This slider does not provide smooth shots. I purchased one, had to return it because the sled rocked in the tracks and the machine-ing of the tracks is not smooth. The slider is bumpy and does not have smooth motion. I tried three sliders, after a fight with Digital Juice and B&H about returning them - and all three sliders were poor quality. I could not get smooth shots with this dolly. The bearings are rocky, and the rails have defects. It is a cheap slider and you get what you pay for. I would not recommend this to anyone. I have tried with EX-1, 5D, and C300 on this slider, and it doesn't matter the weight of the camera - the movement is not smooth - it's sticky and bumpy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works For Me!!! After extensive research and limited pockets, I was lucky enough to stumble across this SlyderDolly. I'm using it for a short film I'm working on and it works very well with two tripods. I mount my Canon 5D on the slider with a Manfrotto 502HD Pro Video Head with Flat Base. It works like a charm. When I used it for a tracking shot on a table, there was a wobbly motion... but nothing that couldn't be taken care of with some form of weight (sandbag, etc.). I didn't have anything on me at the moment and I still managed to get a steady tracking shot. Thumbs up for it's functionality... especially at this price range... a steal!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from garbage I had high hopes for this thing and for the past few months and i've been trying to give it the benefit of the doubt but alas, I cannot . this thing sucks. In theory its great. i love the design concept but it falls short in execution. Aluminum. Light weight, yes, but it dents super easy so you get uneven tracking shots, even if you sand out the dents with super fine, 400 grit sandpaper, which you will probably have to do. metal wheels on a metal surface? forgot about using on quiet interviews unless you go REALLY slow. The sliding piece that you mount a head to can't be tightened enough so it doesn't get loose when using anything more than just a camera. Cheese plate, rails, follow focus? Nice try buddy, but you'll have to keep hard pressure on the slider so it doesn't rock side to side or back and forth. I should've known better. Can't use this on pro jobs and expect usable quality. If you're gonna go cheap, go cheaper than this, its simply not worth the headache.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from How can I put this gently... Pure garbage. Perhaps I got a defective unit. If that was the case, then Digital Juice should have been more helpful. They have no number to call for technical support, only a slow-to-respond email service which just kept me running in circles. So I took it upon myself to try and fiddle with the unit seeing if I could get it to work properly. I've concluded that the issue is with their slyder dolly is in their bearings. They are not smooth. It seems like they should be right out of the box, but when you actually mount a camera rig (or even camera by itself) the shots are wobbly, more so the quicker you move the dolly along the rails. I could hardly get a smooth shot moving it very slowly. I expect that when you lay down almost half a grand for a slider, you get smooth shots. I did not and therefore I cannot give this product anything but 1 star. I'd give it zero stars based on their customer service if I had the option. Terrible product for what you pay and I'm not impressed with the company making it. First return I've ever made to B&H. PS - my homemade slider I built before buying this one was superior.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, simple, one man small dolly If you are looking for a small slider dolly that won't break the bank this is an excellent choice. I encourage all to stay away from friction 'sliders' that merely run on plastic pads that ride on a metal rail as it will not be as smooth as you'd like and wear will only make it worse. The DJ slyder runs very smoothly right out of the box. The carriage can experience some bumps but once you get used to how to move it along the rail and make sure it's seated properly before starting a move this is a very smooth dolly that can add a lot of production value to your shots. Essential accessories are the tripod head adaptor, a small flat based tripod head and the leveling legs. If you'd like to do dolly inward and pullbacks with easy setup then the hi hat and a bowled head are also a good idea. While c stand adaptors are available I've found a sturdy tripod holds the 40' dolly mounted in the center.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worthless I was excited about the price and from the videos I watched it seemed like a good product. The carriage doesn't fit perfectly onto the track so it wobbles, even after I tried adjusting a few times. The biggest problem is that the track itself has a slight textured surface which causes a very slight vibration and it shows in the footage. I had to stabilize every shot when using this. My advice is to bite the bullet and spend the extra money to get a good one otherwise you'll just be frustrated constantly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from solid & smooth Used it with 5d Markiii on a small Sachtler tripod. bought a fluid head for it. It is solid and rolls smoothly. There is a knob that allows you to put some tension or lock it down but it's basically either on and rolling or off and locked down...no in-between steps.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A solid unit that does the job! Great product at a great price. Quality is just as described. The glide is smooth and quiet. Still need to order the high-hat to mount my tripod head and Sony Z5u video camera. As usual, B&H does it best!
