“Take your videos to the next level with dynamic camera movement! The ALM Mini Cart is a 5″ x 8″ table-top dolly that makes your average static shots more compelling. The Mini Cart comes with an aluminum chassis, drilled with alternating 1/4″ and 3/8″ holes and a 1/4–20 slotted rail, attached to two adjustable axels. It works great for straight line, curved and even 360° shots. The cart rolls on four pro quality urethane wheels, allowing for maximum durability and smoothness. Although smaller and lighter than the Action Cart, the Mini Cart retains the same 8″ wheel base and stability..”

“Perfect for table-top use or low-angle shots, the Action Cart adds that crucial element for making otherwise static shots compelling. The 8” wide Action Cart has a sturdy, airplane grade aluminum chassis that supports two adjustable axles. The added width of the cart allows for optimal stability. Their orientation can be modified to allow for adjustment of the cart’s movement. The Action Cart can move straight, along broad curves, or in complete circles for 360° shots. The Action Cart has three 1/4–20 threaded rail slots on its chassis for attaching your mCAM or camera. Professional quality urethane wheels roll on precision ball bearings to ensure that your dynamic shots are carried off smoothly.”
