Nori:

I don't know any brand names for inexpensive dolly systems; however, if you look on the eBay auction site, you'll occasionally see nice (real) dolly tracks and carts cheap. Of course, paying for shipping the dolly will drag (no pun intended) the price up.

I think manfrotto has a light dolly system. But you can only mount the camera on it. I think it's priced to 500$ or something like that. You could rent a proffessional dolly for under 100$. A "Panther" or what they are called.




Regards,



Erik
