Fully portable timelapse dolly


This one now has a portable frame.

The frame is made from a lightweight ladder, cut into 3 pieces which can be carried easily through the bush and reassembled.  The supports are 3 tripods – which are themselves lightweight and portable, and at least one will be part of the kit anyway.

If the platform sways in a strong wind, which we found was a problem with previous trials, it can be guyed using tent pegs into the ground or attached to firm objects.
