Filming some of cinema’s iconic scenes would not have been possible without the camera dolly. Our partner Panther has released its newest addition to the line of dolly – S-Type. It combines the best of the scissors arm and center-column dolly concepts to create one that is superior in every way.
Setting the Standard for Innovation
Unlike other dollies that utilize a hydraulic drive unit, the S-Type is powered by an electro-mechanical drive system, the first of its kind. This solves many problems with hydraulics systems, such as, dripping oil, limited functions, and pumps.
Plus, it features a detachable scissors-arm with the patented full-range features, making it the ideal platform for smooth tracking shots. Under the full length of the scissors-arm, now cinematographers can go high up or down low up to 73 cm without using any additional high-low rig.
The S-Type is designed to be as compact and lightweight as possible with innovations like slide-in batteries that can be pushed simply into the side of the dolly. The battery is also easy to handle and transport with its carrying handle.
Controlling the S-Type is effortless with its new wireless handset. Now you can adjust the dolly’s height and speed, check its battery level, and more with the touch of a button. It is 100% waterproof up to 0.5 m / 20″ so cinematographers can get the shot that they want, rain or shine.
That is not all. The S-Type boasts a long list of other features that are sure to inspire the filmmakers of today and tomorrow.
