Alpha Dolly

The Alpha Dolly is a dolly with electromechanical column, powered by standard camera battery packs. It’s a lightweight, compact and flexible dolly system that scores with a low starting position of the column (710mm/ 27.95 inch) and a new slender design.

It takes only e.g. three standard Li-Ion standard batteries (14,4V/10-15A) to operate the dolly which results in a high flexibility and independence regarding the power supply.

The new seating position at the column is equivalent to the familiar working method of the hydraulic lift arm dollies. Via seat arm adapters available in different lengths and a new telescopic seat arm, the seating position may be adjusted in height. Moreover, the camera operator may rotate with the column thanks to the integrated 360° rotation system.

The Alpha Dolly system is compatible with many of the standard MovieTech accessories.
