slider dolly rails

Hi All,


As far as I know there is not a standard. Most sliders use RollOn or Igus profile while others just designed and pick a gauge which is mostly suiting their design.


I have designed my TwinDolly and TwinTube based on regular stage/rigging truss with adjustable wheel to accommodate the use of the dolly on truss of most 29 cm (or 1 foot).


Hopefully this answers your question.

I don't think there is really a standard distance but having said that, the wider the distance the more stability you can get and less chance for it to topple over which has happened with many users of the Dana Dolly or similar designs.


I noticed you are in Montreal and saw the F55 on your website? Do you shoot with one? I am in the Toronto area and have had my F55 for about a year now... great camera.
