Last week a nice review of the Revolve Camera Dolly system went up on YouTube. This video review was posted by YouTube member "TechKid1000", and shows some good shots of the Revolve dolly used as both a table top dolly, and a video slider. Check it out for a quick look at how the system works.
The Revolve Camera dolly can do a lot. With it's adjustable axles the dolly can maneuver in an endless range of rotational angles giving you any degree of circular movement that you want. With it's rail kit, the Revolve turns into a camera slider with a tripod mountable track. This track can be any length you desire. The monopood attachment lets you adjust the height of the camera, and even lets you use the system as a camera stabilizer. And with multiple mounting points, the dolly can even carry your accessories like lights and LCD monitors. Even with all these fatures, the whole system is fully portable, and very affordable. But, even after all this, there is still more possibilities.
One amazing addition to the system comes with the innovation of the guys over at Syrp. They have created an automatic motion control time lapse device called The Genie. Funded over at Kickstarter (just like the Revolve!), the Genie is a revolutionary product, and one that pairs amazingly well with the Revolve system. The Genie is a motorized computer controlled device that can help you create automated time lapse videos. The unit controls the motion of your camera, as well as your camera's shutter, providing full timelapse automation. The movements include a panning motion, and our favorite feature- a linear movement motion.
The linear accessory lets your camera move along a slider or dolly track automatically. A rope connected to both sides of the track is pulled by the Genie's motor, automatically moving the dolly. The length of linear movement is only limited by the length of your rope. This means the Genie can move your Revolve dolly along the entire length of your track when using with the rail kit. It can also be used off the track, just as easily.

Vincle Lundy of VL Films + Media shared with us this great Revolve Camera Dolly demo. This beautiful footage shows just some of the types of shots that can be achieved with the Revolve Camera Dolly. Vince got some stunningly smooth video slider movements and put together this stunning short video. As you can see from the footage, the Revolve can achieve ultra-smooth shots even in out in the wild where no smooth surfaces are available. The Revolve rail system turns the camera dolly into a portable camera slider and track dolly.
A great video review of the Revolve system was recently posted to YouTube by a company called Yardbless Pro Shooter. The review is very well done, and offers an excellent demonstration of the Revolve dolly. The audio is in Spanish, but English captions are available by clicking the "CC" button at the bottom of the video.
