You may remember last summer when Edelkrone released the Slider Plus, offering a fluid, motorized slider mount for anybody working with time-lapses or interviews. However, like most Edelkrone products, the price was hefty (to say the least). Well, this year at NAB, Edelkrone unveiled their next foray into the tracking game: the Dolly Plus. Let’s take a look at what you can expect to see. Cinema5D brings us an taste of the dolly with an interview and a demo.
You control the dolly using an app, which allows you to determine the path and the movement. These movements include straight, curved, circle, and . . . square? The app lets you focus on your subject, and then the dolly will track the subject along whatever path you have selected. The head on the dolly can pan and tilt, and you can focus using the app.
This piece of equipment is a must-own for the hundreds of filmmakers who simply refuse to push their dolly two feet forward — so they can breathe easier since they no longer need to exhaust themselves by pushing a dolly. Edelkrone is here to give your muscles a break — while depleting your bank account. The Dolly Plus will debut this summer, so pop an ice-cold La Croix, sit back, and let the Edelkrone app make a film for you.
The prices is undetermined right now, but come on . . . it’s Edelkrone.
