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.

Rigwheels Giveaway – week 2

Win a RigWheels RigSkate

RigWheels RigSkate with HDSLR (not included)

RigWheels RigSkate with HDSLR (not included)

RigWheels RigSkate is the perfect solution for curved tabletop and floor shots for mid to large size cameras. This skater dolly setup has a larger footprint making it more stable to give you better and smother shots. Since we design our parts to be interchangeable, you can easily upgrade this skate dolly by adding 4 more wheels which turns it into our RailRunner

Before you enter – we've got another special bonus for the winner! If you win and then send in a video of the demonstration/assembly of the rig or a finished video of something they used it on, RigWheels will send you the additional parts needed for a RigWheels RailDolly.

Don't forget – get your friends and enemies to help you win – after you enter, you'll get a personalized special link – get friends to click that and you'll get additional entries to the giveaway!
