Here’s another DIY project the boys in the lab dug up – this one’s for the aspiring film makers among you. Sometimes that perfect shot needs to be a smooth pan, or slow zoom out. Your options are to walk real careful (and hey, shaky-cam shots are hot right now), spend a few grand on a professional rig, or check out this handy DIY guide over at Instructables.com.
Their build uses used rollerblade wheels, but you could accomplish the same effect with these hard rubber wheels or, with a little creative mounting, these light duty plate casters. The rubber casters would likely give the dolly a smoother ride, and the plate casters would eliminate having to jury-rig the axles, giving the dolly more capacity.
