  3. Jib Dolly Combo


    jib-dolly-rental

    This Jib/Dolly set gives you precise control over motion and smooth moves over a huge range.  Everything you need is included in the rental: the jib, weights, tripod, fluid head, dolly wheels, and dolly track.

    Move from ground level to more than 9 feet, all while riding on the 16 feet of dolly track. A jib and dolly can give you much of the functionality of a crane for a fraction of the price and weight.

    This system is rated for 7 pounds. We love it for lightweight cameras like DSLRs and mirrorless, and larger cameras like the Canon C100 can be mounted in a minimalistic configuration. The whole jib and dolly system packs easily into the included travel cases.

    This Varizoom jib with tripod and fluid head supports cameras up to 7 pounds.  With a maximum height of 9 feet, the whole kit collapses to a length of 38 inches.  We include an adjustable counterweight, for easy balancing.  It’s a great match for DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, as well as medium size cameras like the Canon C300 and Sony FS7.

    There’s no need to rent a bulky crane or difficult-to-use steadicam, because it’s easy to create smooth sweeping moves and professional results with this jib rental!

    We’ve had awesome results with this mount. Your results will depend on the camera, attachment surface, and  other factors.  Always use the equipment safely, and secure it with a safety harness. We can’t be responsible for damage to your camera or vehicle.

    Use the free app on any iPhone or Android device

    Create killer timelapses with your DSLR or other camera and the Radian by Alpine Labs.  You program the Radian with your iPhone or Android device.  It makes precise motorized adjustments and automatically triggers your camera’s shutter for each exposure.  When you’re done, you have a beautiful timelapse sequence with even panning or tilting motion.

    The Radian supports speed ramping and bulb ramping, giving you smooth starts and stops, and exposures through lighting changes like sunrise and sunset.  You can program a whole playlist of actions, allowing you unlimited creative control, without requiring you or your phone to be there.  It’s a motorized head and intervalometer in one. We include the shutter release cable for the Canon fullframe cameras like the 5D mark III, but you can use a different cable to trigger your 7D or Nikon camera as well.  Usually, we use the intervalometer function of Magic Lantern to give us supreme control.

    Just load the free Radian app onto your smartphone, create your timelapse program, connect your phone to the Radian and upload your settings.  Then you can disconnect your phone and Radian does the rest!

    Runs all night on a single charge.  Uses a micro-USB charging port.

  7. Kessler Pocket Dolly v2.0

    The Kessler Pocket Dolly v2.0 is an easy way to get smooth dolly moves without heavy equipment.  It supports up to 15 pounds (perfect for DSLRs) and includes a crank handle for ultra-precise motion.  It’s just under 40″, giving you 31″ of travel and near zero noise.You can set this slider dolly up in minutes.
    We usually use a heavy-duty tripod or two c-stands, but you can also use a lighter duty tripod and a light stand, or use it as a tabletop dolly.  A medium-duty fluid head is also available for $19/day.

  8. DSLR Shoulder Rig with Rails


    DSLR-shoulder-rigWe started with two DSLR shoulder rigs and “frankensteined” them together into one rig we really like.  This rig is our favorite way to stay portable and handheld, and the rails let you mount a follow focus without trouble.   The counterweight in the back helps make long takes easier, and the rig is fully adjustable to fit any shooting style and size.

    For DSLR and mirrorless cameras like the T3i and GH4, this is definitely the best way to get your handheld video to look good.

    If you like, we can add a standard Manfrotto quick-release so you can easily transition to a tripod, and add some mounting hardware so you can mount your monitor or audio gear.

  9. Budget Photo Tripod


    basic-photo-tripodSome days, you need a heavy-duty tripod with a smooth fluid head.  This is not one of those days.  We suggest our budget photo tripod for photo shooters only, since you can’t get smooth pans or tilts with it.  If you’re shooting video, consider a budget video tripod.

    This budget tripod uses a standard 1/4″ mount, extends to 72″, and comes in an elegant carry bag.
