As photographers get asked more frequently to shoot video alongside their stills work, we at Gripvan get asked more and more for video equipment alongside the usual photographic equipment, lighting and grip.
The latest bit of video kit to be added to our rental stock is the incredibly versatile Dana Dolly. We stock the universal version of this dolly which means it's able to take any cylindrical tube between 1 1/4" and 1 1/2" in diameter. As a standard rental we offer the dolly with 1 1/2" aluminium alloy tube in 8' lengths and two lowboy combo stands.
The DanaDolly is perfect for travel since you're able to take just the dolly and mounting kit in their dedicated hard travel case and source rails locally. One DOP we spoke to mentioned using cheap PVC pipe for a plumbers' merchant to save on weight when carrying the kit across rough terrain.
Adding to the versatile nature of this rail dolly, we supply it as standard with three bowls, 75mm, 100mm and 150mm. It can also be mounted to either baby spigots or stands with a junior receptor thanks to the universal mounting system.
If taken with one of our Standard Grip Packages, you'll already have everything you need to get the dolly set up. All that's needed is the camera rig and head of your choice.
