Pico Dolly PC-PD1 Overview

  • 1Description

The Pico Dolly Camera Table Dolly from Pico Dolly is a simple, affordable dolly for capturing dynamic shots with small camcorders and any other type of video-enabled camera, such as a DSLR, mirrorless, or point & shoot model. Perfect for table-top use or low-angle shots, the Pico Dolly adds that crucial element for making otherwise static shots compelling: smooth motion.

The 3.5"-wide dolly has a sturdy aluminum chassis that supports two adjustable axles. Their orientation can be modified (via thumbscrews) to let you adjust the arc of the Pico Dolly's movement. The dolly can move straight, along broad curves, or in complete circles for 360° shots.

The Pico Dolly has three 1/4"-20 threaded holes on its chassis, for attaching the camera (or first a head for precise positioning) plus two accessories such as articulating arms and lights. (A removable 1/4"-20 post is included.) Its wheels resemble those of inline skates, and high-quality ball bearings ensure that your dynamic shots are carried off smoothly – without a hitch.

Adjustable axles allow the Pico Dolly to glide straight or in full 360° circles

    Pico Dolly PC-PD1 Reviews

    Camera Table Dolly is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly cool production tool I love the Pico Dolly! A friend of mine got one of these and I immediately told myself I would get one once I saw it in action. You don't ALWAYS need a $10,000 dolly system, or even one of those nice new pocket dollies for $600-$2,000 to get those gloriously sublime dolly shots! Granted, you DO need a relatively smooth surface for this to work best, but being able to turn the wheels adds so much more versatility and possibilities that you can NEVER get out of high end rail systems. A great tool to keep in your bag of tricks. Definitely adds that Wow! factor to projects of all levels. I try to find an excuse to use this on every production now.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big results in a small package The Pico Table Dolly delivers huge results, with only a few drawbacks. The company's information stated the dolly worked with full sized heads and my intent was to use it with a Gitzo ball head. The problem encountered was the Gitzo didn't match the attachment screw. Solved the problem by going to the drug store and purchasing large scunci head wraps. A quick wrap around the ball head, under the table dolly and back around the ball head gives a VERY secure solution to the problem. Now I get the results that I originally envisioned for the dolly. Also use it with a DIY 48 aluminum track attached to a tripod with very good results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pefect table top dolly With aid of a 6' shelf I was able to use this dolly as a make shift slider for my Sony SR11. I found it too small to work with my Canon 7D and all my ancillary attachments, but with the camera only mounted on a Manfrotto 494 Mini Ball Head it worked like a charm. It's a solid piece of hardware that works exactly as advertised. My one complaint is that it did not come with a wrench to undo the removable 1/4-20 female threaded post and nothing I have in my tool box will work. I would like to have attached it on the reverse side, placing the axles on the underside thereby providing greater clearance between camera and the wheels.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crazy Fun! It's amazing how I find myself taking videos of absolutely everything just to see what it looks like in motion. Since I got my Pico Dolly that's exactly what I do. Once I figured out some tricks I have taken some very simple videos that look amazingly complicated. Very well built, compact and does exactly what it is supposed to and more. My only complaint is that it did not come with a tripod adapter to go onto the 1/4 20 screw stud. None of my heads fit without it. I looked at other options that were much more expensive. Glad I got what I did instead of one of the more expensive options.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet Pico Dolly Loving my new Pico Dolly. It's small, afordable, easy to use and works perfectly with my Panasonic Lumix GF3. Used it in a classroom for b-roll shots the other day. Kids doing crafts at tables. Did some nice dolly shots instead of the tired old hand-held and tripod fare. Also bought the 7 Articulating Friction Arm which adds funcionality. If your a single camera documenary videographer, the Pico Dolly is a must-have item for your DSLR package. I even attached the Pico Dolly to an old Slick tripod and was able to dolly with my Panasonic AG-HPX170. It worked great. Threads on one of the adjustment knobs were stripped out of the box. I called the factory (they actually have a phone number on their web site with a real person answering it) and they shipped me a new one in two days, no questions asked.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy a ballhead if using dslr or Yes it is small. CNC Machinery makes it very stable when using it as a dolly. Way better movement than you think. I just tried it on my HF G10 and the pans, etc look very professional. You have to buy small ball head for it and get a 3/8 to 1/4 adapter to mount it if you are using a larger video camera. (like my HF G10) The double arm it comes with is more suited for smaller cameras. Quality of the material and smoothness of the dolly move is incredible.Don't think twice just buy it. It is that good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pico Dolly Delivers After looking at most of the table top dollys I was happy to a find what I wanted with Pico. Well made, smooth rolling. I also bought the DL-0392 11 Articulating Arm which works great. The biggest issue if you get only one of the arms is balance. I am using it with a Canon 7D and using it with only one arm is going to cause a balance issue. This is not really a flaw but just basic science. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a low impact/footprint table top dolly.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not without its hiccups If I can say one thing about this product, it supports quite a load! Other than that, I have much cheaper dollies with just as many, if not more features. I have a Nikon D800 I use with an Oben ball mount on top of this sled. I also have a couple pearstone articulating arms for a MicroPro LED light and Marshall M-CT5 monitor. This dolly handles it no problem.I will say that the bolts used to tighten the axles have rather large handles. I wish they were the ratchet kind like those on my nicer Manfrotto tripods. Because they are so long and you can not ratchet them, they interfere with placing my articulating arms on. I even in some cases have to either over or under crank the axle just so the handle doesn't stick so far out into the platform. I forsee myself shaving these things down at least half way.I also wish there were some guidelines pertaining to axle angles. This thing is nearly impossible to get set in a straight line (when using with rail systems) Add a good 5 minutes to set up if you are using with rails as there is a lot of trial and error. The axles are hexagonal in shape so you sort of have to feel out where they might be straight against the flat bottom plate.There are no screw holes on the bottom inside of the axles. This means you can't place little screws to guide on a DIY pipe type track. There are FAR cheaper dollies that have these solutions built in.I would also recommend a very light wet sanding with incredibly high grit sand paper in order to smooth out the wheels. There are lots of little pieces left over from the casting mold that transfer shake into the shot.One more thing, I actually ordered a unit before the one I've tested. It came to me warped. Only 3 wheels touched the ground at any given time allowing for a good bit of movement if weight wasn't distributed properly. I'm a little surprised this company doesn't have better quality control. I noticed the issue as soon as I opened the box. Again, I'm a little surprised the person who packed the slider didn't take 10 seconds to roll the thing on the table in front of them before shipping off. That was VERY annoying because I missed using it at a shoot. Good thing I've got a couple cheaper ones still sitting around...
