The Slyder Dolly is a portable linear-sliding mini-dolly tracking solution for camera rigs up to an optimum weight of 30 lbs. Weighing in at 7 and 10 pounds respectively, and with a width of just under 5", both the 40" and the 64" Slyder Dolly units are supremely portable, allowing you to get those quick, smooth short-run dolly shots without having to carry a full dolly system and track. The unit is constructed from custom extruded high-grade aluminum with integrated rails and stylish chromed end caps. Its anodized body gives it a long-lasting and smooth finish that is easy to maintain and clean.The dolly can be used on many surfaces - including tabletop, ground-level and tripod - to create smooth camera movements on a horizontal, angled or vertical axis.
Whether you're an established pro or just getting started, the Slyder Dolly is a great way to add production value to your shoot. It provides you with the flexibility you need to capture an almost limitless variety of tracking shots using a wide variety of camera setups. Its size makes it more flexible to use in small rooms, where you can change the position of the camera relative to your subject faster than moving a whole tripod. Achieving something like the perfect “reveal shot” is quick and easy. You can create beautiful transitions between scenes or subtle intro shots with a straightforward side-on tracking shot of your subject. Or you can be more dramatic when the Slyder Dolly is used low to the ground or at an angle - almost like a small jib. You can also point the track at the subject and use the movement to bring items in and out of focus. The optional C-Stand Adapters also make it easy to angle and rotate the camera to different positions for more creative slide and pan effects.

Custom extruded aircraft-grade 6000 series aluminum channel with integrated rails resists wear and eliminates flex in the unit. The anodized finish ensures a scratch-free rugged surface.
Trolley unit rides on 8 oil-filled bearings, selected for their harmonic match to the custom C channel to minimize sound, as well as for their ultra-smooth movement on the rails. The two-tiered bearing design also allows for inverted operation.
Trolley plate allows for quick and easy installation of multiple accessory attachments such as articulating arms, LCD monitors, microphones, ball head adapters, quick release plates, high hats and more.
The integrated brake/damping system allows for “parking” the trolley when not in use, plus it creates variable resistance to movement to create smoother slow shots.
No cast parts used. All parts were created by, or specifically for, Digital Juice one at a time on a CNC Mill or lathe. Each unit was then tuned, assembled and tested by hand by Digital Juice staff engineers. Total development time was 18 months from start to finish.
Flexible and adaptable to a wide variety of camera rigs and shooting setups from side-on to angled to vertical.
