The Cinetics Cineskates allow you to accomplish a variety of fluid, high quality cinematic effects using almost any camera. Shots such as panning, tracking and arcing that were previously impossible without a complex and expensive dolly set up can now be achieved in a matter of minutes.
The Cineskates are a set of 3 specially designed skateboard wheels that attach quickly and easily to the ultra-versatile Joby GorillaPod Focus Tripod and Cinetics SkatePlate (both sold separately). The tripod can then be wheeled freely for smooth tracking of unpredictable movement, or the legs of the GorillaPod can then be bent, twisted and aligned to dial-in a specific range of motion to suit the effect or scene you are trying to capture.
Experiment with arcing shots that glide around a subject, sliding shots that pull focus away or towards a focal point, rolling shots that glide over an object, panning shots that scan a wide area and much more.
Soft polyurethane wheels with quiet precision ball-bearings deliver silky smooth movement which translates to graceful, jitter free, dynamic results. Tick marks on each wheel act as a ruler and enable precise, incremental camera movement to ensure consistent results when shooting time-lapse and stop motion scenes.
Ideal for use on cameras and lens combinations weighing under 2.2kgs, the Cinetics Cineskates includes a handy neoprene case for convenient storage and protection.
Note: Best results achieved when filming on very smooth surfaces.
