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. Skate? I’d mount it on aircraft and document our parachute testing for the Army.

  2. I’m about to tape a 60D to the hood of my car for a shot. Much rather use this.

  3. What do you have that is metallic that you’d use this RigMount on? Helicopters, Hummvee, Airplanes. This would be perfect for capturing the exit for airdrop resupply and parachute testing.

  4. I shoot tons of things outdoors and in industrial sites. Something like this would be great to stick onto any of the miles of sheet metal plates I see every time I shoot.

  5. I’m really excited about this! I never thought I would win it with just 18 entries!!! ;D

    Can’t wait to try them out!

    Thanks Mitch and RigWheels!
