Take your camera for a spin with the Revolve camera dolly

Photo junkies with tight budgets will definitely want to check out this project by videographer Jeremy Canterbury. He’s designed and built the Revolve camera dolly which offers a low-cost, modular alternative to more conventional camera equipment — which can get quite expensive. 

It’s designed to make it easier to capture smooth video and time lapse photography. According to the Revolve website, the dolly comes with a range of mounts from the standard ball and horseshoe to an iPhone mount extension. The device is supposed to be almost universally compatible across most cameras. 

It was made out of aerospace grade aluminum. What’s really cool about the design is that the dolly was constructed with adjustable axes which allow it travel in a straight line or a curved arc of nearly any angle. You’ll notice in the photos that the dolly has ruler marks. These marks assist in proper alignment of the wheels for those curved arc shots. 

Revolves come with a central mount and two side mounts for attaching accessory equipment like lighting units or ball heads. Canterbury will also have two kits available to add on to the Revolve. One of them is the monopod which can be used to raise the camera up to 65 inches. The other is a rail kit for use on rough terrain. 

At the moment, the project isn’t fully orderable but you can help out the Kickstarter fund and depending on how much you pledge you could earn a Revolve.
