SHUKUMA DOLLY R13,500.00
Compact | Versatile | Mobile
The SHUKUMA DOLLY is the only fully functional timelapse dolly available in South Africa. It is perfect for photographers and filmmakers wishing to add MOTION-CONTROLLED TIMELAPSE to any production.
This rail is COMPACT and DURABLE with all the components neatly fitted together providing a very professional product. The VERSATILITY of the Shukuma DOLLY allows for shooting in uneasy terrain at almost ANY ANGLE or DIRECTION possible. A fairly light-weight rail eases MOBILITY and makes travelling and hiking effortless, especially with the weather resistant Dolly Bags. The CONVENIENCE of a SHORT 1m rail often comes in handy particularly when shooting in areas with limited space.
The practical SWIVEL LEGS makes it possible to shoot LOW on the ground and at VARIOUS ANGLES. Tripods can EASILY be MOUNTED onto the rail and can be MOVED along the entire rail to be positioned wherever you please. The Shukuma DOLLY can be used with one or more tripod(s) or just with the legs.
The CART moves SMOOTHLY along the rail on comfortably fitting wheels to avoid any vibration and confirms STEADY movement for superb TIMELAPSE results. The cart runs on a flat-belt system powered with a 12V BATTERY connected to a STRONG motor and a pulley ensuring CONSISTENT movement throughout. Fastening or re-adjusting the belt is simplified by the thumb-screws attached to the belt-clips.
The Shukuma DOLLY comes complete with an SMC MOTION CONTROLLER which also serves as an intervalometer for your camera. With the SMC you can control much more then just your shutter speed, interval and amount of shots. You can adjust the SPEED of the motor to control “feathering” or ramping and also use it in conjunction with the MERLIN TELESCOPE HEAD (a motorised pan-tilt head).
The Shukuma DOLLY is fully extendable with DOLLY EXTENSIONS.
With the constant evolvement of technology and exciting new techniques that arise, the Shukuma DOLLY is an ESSENTIAL PIECE OF EQUIPMENT for any professional photographer or cameraman wishing to offer an additional service to your clients.
