CineSkates are a set of three wheels that quickly attach to the GorillaPod Focus Tripod and enable filmmakers to capture fluid, moving video footage without lugging heavy gear. CineSkates allows anyone to achieve fluid camera movement in space-constrained environments where traditional camera sliders, dollies and cranes are too cumbersome.
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
Turn your GorillaPod in to a versatile table-top 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
A powerful cinematic tool you can hold in the palm of your hand.
Free to move around
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.
