planet5D sponsor RigWheels has a couple of updates for you – first off, they're having a SALE until August 8th! Also, they've put together this demo of the RigWheels on a Pelican case.
The Pelican Case demo[tentblogger-vimeo 26945172]
In this video we demonstrate how to build a great little dolly / slider using a Pelican 1150 case, a Manfrotto 496RC2 and a set of RigWheels. The great thing about this build is that you don't even need a measuring tape to do it because the 4 drill points for the RigWheels are already mapped out on the Pelican Case. We also show examples of builds using cheese plate and a hi-hat.
Be sure to check out our main product description video:
RigWheels Portable Dolly / Slider Wheels are a simple and sleek way to add motion to your images utilizing the support equipment that you may already own. Because RigWheels can mount directly to your camera rig or other support platform with one bolt, they are the easiest and most portable way for you to add smooth camera movement to your arsenal. RigWheels along with any nearby piece of pipe, glass, plexiglass, laminate, track or other smooth surface can give you the same seamless smooth motion as other options that cost hundreds more.
