I recently sold my Kessler Crane Philip Bloom Pocket Dolly (2 foot version) and bought a CineSlider 3 foot. It was truly a sad day when parting with my trust dolly that I had for about a year and a half. I cant praise its performance enough. It was a real pleasure to use, especially on location while shooting a documentary in the north of Pakistan last summer.
Seeing as I have not been traveling much recently, I decided to trade up for an extra foot of track.
Here are some pictures of the new CineSlider which I got along with a few bells and whistles:
Outrigger feet, a Manfrotto 244 Magic Arm with the Super Clamp this along with a couple of Manfrotto 394 quick release plates makes for some really interesting rigs you can build up!
The quality of the CineSlider is awesome, as expected with any Kessler Crane product, having used their Pocket Jib and Dollies I can confedntly say that all their stuff is really top notch!
A few bonuses about the CineSlider as compared to the Philip Bloom Dolly is the added protection around the rails as they are encased, along with being able to handle a much heavier payload. (Up to 80 Pound). On the down side though it is a little heavier.
With a higher weight capacity the Magic Arm can now be used to its full potential. Even in an underslung mode with a EF 70-200L IS 2.8 the CIneSlider worked seamlessly without a hitch.
Cant wait to incorporate some of these camera moves in my next project!
