Post High Speed Dolly Tests
I finally got around to upgrading my Gerber Dolly to servo-motor drive. Now officlally as fast as the MRMC Bolt robot rig...

In this configuration to is optimised for running a tripod with pan tilt head, and will carry any camera up to a full size Arri Alexa.

I will also fit a crane arm, though performance may be a little slower, due to extra weight and safety precautions... :)

Nice! The slo-mo shots really show how smooth the motion is.

I was a bit nervous at first how stable it would be, or if it would even take off... Robot tracking systems use captive rails. Even so, it does seem quite smooth. I may still put some gas springs for the ends in case it doesn't stop one day! There is about 50kg of total weight in the rig with a camera on board, and it will increase once I mount the boom arm...
