Add Flexibility to Your Dolly Shots With New Orbit Dolly FlexTrac SystemAdd Flexibility to Your Dolly Shots With New Orbit Dolly FlexTrac System (March 16, 2012) Digital Juice® announced today that it is releasing the Orbit Dolly FlexTrac & Wheel System, a highly portable, seamless and flexible track system designed for use with the Digital Juice Orbit Dolly. The product includes a 50' roll of flexible but solid rubber cord track plus a set of 3 pivoting wheel trucks which attach to the Orbit Dolly in place of its regular wheels. The Orbit Dolly is uniquely designed to achieve both straight, arced and 360 degree circular tracking shots. The FlexTrac & Wheel Kit extends Orbit Dollys tracking capabilities by giving users the ability to add smooth spiral and curved paths as well as 90 degree turns to their creative shot list.
"The Orbit Dolly FlexTrac & Wheel System is so versatile that it can make getting the perfect tracking shot on location supremely easy," says Viv Beason, President of Digital Juice. "Because of its light weight and ease of use, you can be up and running with even the most complex shot in minutes - whether shooting in studio or in tight indoor spaces. You can even take it outdoors to get action shots normally impossible to achieve without much more expensive equipment."
The FlexTrac cord is made from 25mm durable rubber which provides maximum flexibility and strength while still being lightweight for optimal portability. It comes in a 50' length of track that can be looped to create a 20' - 22' dolly run, or an optional additional 50' section can be purchased in order to create a full 50' track. The flexible rubber material used for the track retains little or no memory from being stored in a coiled position and can therefore be placed in the desired position straight from its custom designed carry bag.
The Wheel System consists of two wheel trucks that use a single center swivel to guide the dolly on one side of the track while the third sits on the opposite track and utilizes a 3" floating pivot arm, giving users the ability to track around corners and change directions as many times as they want, while also compensating for any deviation in the track spacing. The toolless assembly also means you can quickly remove the existing wheels from the Orbit Dolly, secure the FlexTrac pivot wheels to the chassis, lay your track and start shooting within minutes.
