Polly portable dolly system

Just stumbled over this new dolly system. It’s called Polly. It’s obviously that the name is a mix of the words “portable” and “dolly”. Polly is intended for filmmakers who like to work with compact camera systems like DSLRs. It’s design is very small and compact, so it would fit in a bag or similar.

  • Flexible and extendable system
  • Stopmotion scale for accurate tracking sequences
  • High quality engineering
