CineGear in LA is approaching quickly and we would like to give you an update on our activities. At the bottom you will find info about our General Data Protection Regulation.
Motor for TwinDolly
It took us some years and finally we have found a good balance in sustainability, quality and price.
Definite specs are still unveiled but you will be surprised. Especially on the features which will be revealed in september this year.
Small lightweight yet sturdy for the medium camera packages. Fits on our TwinDolly and any tripod or head-fitting. It gives you a rise and fall of nearly 2 feet, perfect for the tiny spaces. Due to its 1-to-1 balance it does not give any unwanted lateral pressure on the TwinDolly or tripod.
On our booth #86 in the NYstreeth backlot we will have the following products to show:
BarTracks for crane / Dolly
TwinDolly with TwinTubes
TwinDolly on a regular stage-truss
TwinDolly underslung with the TrussRoundBracket
Our CenterFold BarTrack And ofcourse the TwinMotor and TwinJib.
After this show our new reseller Steve Robertson, will have a selection of our gear available.
If you are not able to attend CineGear and yet you are interested in our products we are happy to come to your place in the LA Area and give you a private demonstration. We will be around until Thursday june 7th.
Our next show will be cinec2018 in Munich, September 22nd until 24th.
We are proud to announce that we have a new reseller for the USA: Steve Robertson.
He is an active grip, member of IATSE Local 80 Studio Grips, Hollywood, since 1978. Owner of Motormounts Camera Mounts, a Camera mount manufacturer, and rental company. He has 20 years of Dolly grip experience and 25 years of Key Grip experience, so he knows the drill.
Please contact him for any information regarding our products. Very soon he will have most of our products on stock as well.
With our new BasePlate the versatility of the TwinDolly has been increased: You can now raise your camera-fitting in steps of 5cm or even use a small offset-arm. As usual you can use it on any TwinDolly we ever shipped. … Continue reading →
SolidGripSystems Curved Tracks are now also available as Centerfold. With this new type of crosstie, already used on our straight tracks, you will effectively reduce the packing size of a curved section by 50%.
And what does Geoff Boyle (DoP and CML founder) thinks about our TwinDolly?
“I’ve seen the Solid Grip Twin Tube at a number of shows and whilst it looked good I just kinda thought of it as another slider. After using it for 4 weeks I’ve completely changed my mind, it’s now an indispensable part of my kit, I can’t imaging going out on a shoot without it. I’ve had a system with about 15′ of track and the only complaint that I have is that I didn’t have 2 systems as I had 2 cameras.. It’s incredibly fast to rig and level, this could be even faster with small bubbles on each joint, we’ve had it on stairs, across bars, on the floor, on lighting stands on camera cases. I don’t care what budget I’m working to I want this every time!”
The worldwide acceptance of our products strongly increased over the last few years, resulting in a steady growth.
To ensure our quality level and to create more opportunities for product improvement and product development, SolidGripSystems is now enforced with an additional partner. Onno Perdijk will use his knowledge and extensive experience to focus on improvement of the current product range and for the development of new products.
Logistics, supplier control and not in the last place quality control will be the focus areas for Eric Tollenaar. Knowledge and experience in these disciplines are build up in an international technical support environment.
Both partners will fully control the in-house manufacturing process, safeguarding this unique selling point of SolidGripSystems.
All of our products are manufactured in our own factory in the Netherlands, following high quality standards. We trust that this change will make SolidGripSytems a strong and reliable partner, delivering high quality grip equipment for an affordable price.
Right now we are on our way to Las Vegas, where we attend the NAB show at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The exhibition will be held from April 8 – 11.
Come visit us on the BandPro stand C10408. See you there!
