Passport Camera Dolly

 

The Passport Camera Dolly System is tailor made for traveling professionals and remote on-location production. The all-in-one design and rock solid build quality make the Passport Camera Dolly system ideal for international documentary and network news style production where larger/heavier camera systems (up to 100 pounds) are being used and a stable, reliable platform is needed.

The entire kit is flight ready at 50lbs (23kg) an won’t incur expensive excess charges.passport camera dolly 6.3′ (1.95m) of track collapse into 19″ sections that pack along with the camera dolly carriage, end-brackets and ball-head adapters into the included custom Pelican 1610 protector case (with wheels & handle).

 

connector for camera dolly

The track/tubes are the strongest and most accurate collapsable rail that we have seen on the market. Constructed from high-grade 6061 aluminum for rigidity and machined to a tolerance of .001″, sections of track connect seamlessly via threaded connectors (you will not notice a “bump” when rolling over them). The 19″ sections are interchangeable with our larger 40″ PortaRail systems so if longer range is needed, you can always add more length. Strong Camera Dolly Rail At the included 6.3′ length, the rails have less than 1/8″ of flex with a 40lb load placed at the center. When making comparisons to other systems it is important to note that this system includes the rails necessary for operation. Other speed-rail type dollies that do not include machined collapsable rail are more directly comparable to our RailDolly Traveler Kit.

Transporting long pipe or tube for a suspended rail system like this has been prohibitive in the past for both cost and convenience reasons.  Our goal in designing this system was to provide a professional solution for traveling production that does not require carrying additional bags or a bunch of extra hardware and stands to operate. The all-in-one design of the Passport camera dolly can save $100 or more per trip in just checked bags. Portable dolly systems where track is placed on the ground have achieved this in the past but the Passport suspended rail dolly offers a lot more flexibility in where and how you can use it such as on uneven terrain or placing the system over objects.

Like all of RigWheels products, the Passport is multi-function and the included components can be used to configure other types of movement and mounting tools like the RigSkate Tabletop Dolly or RigMount X  magnetic camera mount.

Heavy duty camera dolly for large cameras

“Other dollies don’t fit into the back of a 4×4 going across the Atacama desert in two countries, shooting two shows in 10 days. These products are designed and refined by individuals with decades of real world experience on every continent in every climate and with every genre of filmmaking. The Passport is a tool that is a permanent part of my kit on every shoot.” (DP, Colin Threinen – Minneapolis, MN)

 

 

camera dolly to travel with

“We picked up a Rig Wheels Passport Dolly before starting the production of our most recent film “Teen Press”. It’s what I’ve been wanting for years. A real travel dolly that’s simple, portable and designed in a kit. We’ve used all kinds of dolly systems over the years but size, portability, set up time, and weight have always been limiting factors. This thing is solid, sets up in minutes, 50lbs (in case no overages), and can be moved around very quickly. I did weeks of research on every dolly out there. This is the one. It’s built with the quality of a German sports car. It goes with us on every production. This is a must have for any documentary filmmaker.” (T.C. Johnstone – Boulder, CO)
