Which Dolly for Benro Tripod A550EX?

Im looking for a tripod dolly for moving and tracking shots inside the stage, hotels, in doors, etc.

My camera is always mounted on a Benro Tripod A550EX.

I was looking at Manfrotto 127 Dolly, but Im not sure, if it will fit my tripod or not.

Can someone suggest ?

Can't say for sure as I can't find a clear enough picture of the leg/ foot retaining mechanism, but, assuming that will work with your tripod, you might be better off with the 127VS.

That has the advantage of variable leg spread which gives you some optional tripod height adjustment you may not have with the fixed spread 127.

Okay so the 127VS can be set to any tripod universally ?

Ah, that's for you to find out, I'm afraid.

The Manfrotto site says the 127/ VS is compatible with pretty well all it's single tube stills sticks, whether that means it will be 100% compatible with your sticks (not being Manfrotto) I hesitate to say.

Best I can do is "I think so, maybe".
