The Mantis is a new generation of remote controlled dolly system. It provides new perspectives in the making of your tracking shots as it can overcome the constraints of the traditional rail dolly track and offer the possibility to shoot from ground level. Its interchangeable wheels allow it to travel on any type of terrain at a maximum speed of 35km/h. Its typical runtime is 1 hour at full speed but can be increased up to 5 hours if used at a low speed. We placed our Shotover G1 on the Mantis to exploit all of its possibilities. Discreet and compact, the whole system is controlled wirelessly (the absence of cable being a plus while filming) with an operating range of up to 300m. It benefits from a high-performance 3 axis gyro-stabilization and a large range of suitable camera/lens combinations with an optical axis placed at 80cm from the ground. This really handy miniature tracking vehicle will quickly become a permanent fixture on all of your shoots.
