Some of you might remember the Kickstarter funded CineSkates we featured here on Geeky Gadgets. That were designed to provide photographers with a cost effective way of creating smooth innovative panning shots of products and environments whiteout the need for large expensive awkward dolly rigs.
Now the company behind CineSkates, Cinetics has launched a new smaller set of rollers called miniSkates designed to be used with compact cameras and smartphones.
The latest miniSkates camera dolly system has been designed to be used with any camera with a standard tripod mount that weighs less than 1.5 pounds. The system uses the GorillaPod SLR-Zoom Tripod and three skates board wheels to provide easy capture of fluid, moving video footage.
“Want to use your Android with miniSkates? Cinetics new Universal Phone Mount will mount most phones to nearly any camera stabilizer or tripod. Mounts for the iPhone 4 & 4S and GoPro cameras are currently available from Cinetics. Regular cameras work with the Cinetics systems as is, without the optional specialty mounts.”
MiniSkates are now available to purchase from the Cinetics website for $150, but are currently listed as limited stock so don’t delay.
