Cheap and robust tripod dolly

Post by landmeterbeuckx » Tue Oct 27, 2015 11:31 am

Hi,
If you are interested in a cheap but robust dolly, i've just purchased this one. Works great with my TX5 and tripod.

I've got no connection with Amazon but paid 1/5 the amount that is asked for a surveyor dolly and it is as good.

That is cheap, and looks good.

I normally avoid cheap for cheap sake but, looks nice.

I still avoid ones that just have wheels myself as they are never as stable as you think.

Normally i buy top notch stuff for my surveying equipment but i find a price range from 400~600€ a little bit too much.

I'm going to use this but not very often. It's a videocamere dolly but the weight of my tx5 isn't that heavy.

When i have the time i will make a little video to demonstrate that it is very stable.
