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.
Itâ€™s been an exciting 18 months for us since we launched RigWheels. Weâ€™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.
