If you’re going to shoot professional-looking videos on your DSLR, you’ll need somewhat professional tools to help you do it. When it comes to camera dollies for shooting moving footage, it’s going to be hard to top this highly-portable Pocket Skater 2.
Made by Edelkrone, it’s a collapsible dolly that compacts to the size of portable Bluetooth speakers (2.1 x 5 x 1.8 inches), all while weighing just a single pound. It looks a little too thick to actually fit into your pants pocket like those audio devices would, but a bag pouch would totally make a suitable-enough place to stash one in.
The Pocket Skater 2 is a three-wheeled dolly that can carry smartphone and DSLR cameras up to 5.5 pounds in weight, allowing it to be used even with larger consumer-grade gear. You can straighten the wheels to send the dolly moving in a straight trajectory, as well as have it move in a circle by pivoting the same wheels at your desired angle. Designed to be used without a separate tripod head, the built-in head has adjustable height (from 3 inches to 5.5 inches), angle, and rotation, allowing you to easily change up shots by simply moving camera position by hand, complete with an adjustable center of gravity to provide balance and stability with different setups. Construction is CNC-machined aluminum, with delrin components, rubber wheel rings, and stainless steel screws.
Available now, the Pocket Skater 2 is priced at $289.99.
