Rigwheels DIY gear

RigWheels has just released an array of new products (watch the video below for info on all of them!) and tools designed for moving and mounting your camera in unique and versatile ways.

Previously known as a DIY only tool, RigWheels new assortment offers complete flexibility in allowing you to scale your solution from DIY to complete system. The key benefit to this new system is in how the various parts can be interchanged and configured into different types of dollies, sliders, and mounts.

One of the most interesting and original items in the line is the RigMount, a high-powered rare-earth magnet with surprising strength in mounting applications for video as well as still photography.

RigWheels has managed to turn a few simple, well thought out parts into a very versatile and capable system at an affordable price.

It’s been an exciting 18 months for us since we launched RigWheels. We’ve seen enthusiastic customers designing and building camera movement rigs in more than 65 countries. RigWheels of course started as a DIY dolly solution. Moving forward we will continue showing people how to build DIY options but we are now happy to offer complete solutions for customers.

  1. My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives. – Hedley Lamarr. I can’t stop thinking of different ways to shoot with this setup. – Rob Hawley

  2. Well, I always love to have movement on my shots, and with this kid the options are endless! (and I can aprove that! :D)

  3. Great budget solution. Now I want to look into similar solutions for time lapse motion control incorporating rig wheels.

  4. Looking forward to winning one of these. You can shoot countless movies in different angles with this set-up.

  5. This setup would really come in handy on the go or for attaching my camera on a car. Would always have it in my camera bad in case I needed it for a certain shot.

  6. Would be really handy while on the go. Small enough to out in my camera bag. Would also love to try it mounted on a car.

  7. I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that I could make a movie four hundred and thirty seven different ways with this set-up.

  8. There are so many ways this kit will add production value to the films I LOVE to make… with this rig there are 360 degrees of camera movement available to us…

  9. I bought a set of RigWheels last year. They are so well built. I love them. Based on these I can assume the rest of their product line is made to the same standard. I would certainly put this kit to good use.

  10. Pretty sure the ways to use these tools is endless. Really interested in trying to use the tools to create an electronically powered dolly movement.

  11. Cool concept, cool product, cool solution. Hot wheels to mount and move my camera in lot of ways! 🙂

  12. This kit would open up several types of shots with our current DSLR setup! I could easily see us achieving smooth tracking shots and capturing the pro feel. We’ll be producing several music videos to promote our new album and future single releases. It would be wonderful to have this set of gear to help us get the job done in a professional manner.

  14. I own a pair of rig wheels and they are awesome, but it just made me want all the other pieces. I already have all my shots planned, just need to gear. Obviously infinite but I have about ten specific ways…
