Heavy Cameras on the Colortran Mini-Crab Dolly!
The massive 160 pound Panavision R-200 (above) and the 130 pound Mitchell BNCR (pictured below on a location shoot) were often mounted on Colortran Mini-Crab Dollies. Although the Colortran dolly was not intended for "top-heavy" 35mm cameras, many Colortran's were paired-up with the big 35's. Virtually untippable! A true testament to a perfectly designed dolly by an incredibly genius inventor!
It's barely noticeable, but that's a Colortran Mini-Crab Dolly under a Mitchell BNCR/Worral gear-head combination. Click on this image to enlarge.
