Chapman-Leonard Cobra VT 22-61 Dolly

The Cobra Dolly is one of the world's smallest professional camera dollies at just 20 inches square! The Cobra is characterized by its single central lifting column that rises up from the dollies tiny chassis (just 20 inches square) just as its name suggests. The column is essentially a pedestal, charged with nitrogen to be statically balanced by the weight of camera or equipment it is carrying. Vertical movement is effortless and precise, allowing you to set the camera height anywhere along the travel of the column or perform dynamic moving shots with a change in lens height. The Cobra is popular for single camera shoots and small crews. It is perfect for filming in existing locations where space and access is often limited to standard doorways, office interiors or those tiny service lifts. The Cobra is small, stable, built like a tank and works with camera sliders and even stinger jib arms.
