From the Manufacturer
This former Kickstarter project went viral selling several thousand units before ever appearing in stores or on the Cinetics website. Now you can get your CineSkates right here on Amazon.com with free shipping (for Prime members). CineSkates combines high quality wheel bearing technology with the flexible GorillaPod Focus Tripod, allowing the amateur or professional filmmaker to achieve fluid camera movement with no need for the traditional camera sliders, dollies and cranes that are so cumbersome and costly.Versatile Tabletop Camera Dolly
With recent high-quality cameras, anyone can make a film with incredible image quality. What matters most is camera movement; It can mean the difference between your dad's home movies and a smooth-panning cinematic masterpiece.Wide-Ranging Shots
With just a gorillapod and CineSkates, you can accomplish:
- Arcing shots that rotate around objects
- Sliding shots that push or pull the subject into focus
- Rolling shots that glide over the top of the subject
- Time-lapse with smooth rolling pans
- Panning shots that scan a wide area
- "Worm's eye view" shots that slide just above the floor
If you can dream of a shot you can put it in motion with CineSkates. It only takes a few minutes to attach the CineSkates, line up your shot, and capture your vision on film. Portability and Expandability
Unlike many expensive table dollies on the market, CineSkates is light and compact, letting you put it in your backpack and take it with you everywhere. CineSkates work specifically with the flexible GorillaPod Focus tripod enabling you to get intriguing tracking or arcing shots with a touch of your finger.

- so spendy, and the Ravelli dolly does just about the same job but for over $100 less. Of course, you can't set that one on a tabletop... but if you're doing a lot of tabletop stuff a slider can be just as useful in most situations.
- to get a really smooth shot, you have to situate the wheels just so. And if they aren't JUST so, the back legs will slowly drift apart as you roll, causing some shake.
These are very well made, and the concept is excellent, but I'm basically trading these in for more essential pieces of equipment.
To use CineSkates, they must be on a perfectly smooth surface to avoid bumps, and this perfectly smooth surface must be the level at which your subject is. Unless you intend to carry around sawhorses and giant planks of wood, these wheels are only practical for small product shots (assuming you have ample smooth space around the product), and shooting up musicians noses while they're performing onstage. Even if you manage to get the operating height of your Cineskates+gorillapod to the correct spot, you're still going to have to wrestle the Gorillapod to hold your rig, and to properly align the wheels.
I can't fault the construction or smoothness of the wheels, and the method they use to attach to Gorillapod is sold. The CineSkates themselves are well made, and that's why I'm giving them two stars. My disappointment lies in the practicality of these toys, and the fact that I let the hype and marketing blind me to their actual functionality.
Seeing as these are banned from being sold in the Amazon marketplace, I'll be putting my set on eBay.
