Kessler Crane PocketDolly video review

August 11, 2010

Video Podcast

The fine folks at Kessler Crane recently sent me one of their most popular products, the PocketDolly v2, for review. The PocketDolly is an inexpensive yet incredibly well made dolly specifically designed for Video DSLRs. The PocketDolly measures 38.5 inches yet provides approximately 35 inches of travel allowing some the addition of some great movements into your videos.

What really sets the PocketDolly apart from most other similarly priced competing models is the fact that it is belt driven and includes a crank that makes it MUCH easier to achieve smooth movements, both by turning the crank or by winding some string around the crank and pulling it. At only 7.5 pounds, the pocket dolly is very portable, yet can hold cameras weighing up to 15 pounds!

Don’t worry if you don’t know what a dolly is, or how you can use one on your videos, in the review I demonstrate how to use and and show you some sample shots.

Check out the video review and take a look at how great the PocketDolly is; HIGHLY recommended.

As always if you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment below and I will answer them ASAP.
