Compared to other dollies...the ColorTran Mini-Crab is not only the most versatile...It's also the most compact and portable dolly out there!

See for yourself! Take a look at these other dollies for comparison! Paul Newman riding an earlier Italian-made Elemack Mark I (on tracks) hand-holding an Arri 35-2. Click on any image to enlarge.
Filmmaker, Andrew Costikyan being pushed on a three-wheeled Fisher dolly (on tracks).
Mr. Costikyan using his Costikyan Western Dolly fitted with a Mit and a Worral gear-head on top of a high-hat.

So you see, there's nothing as compact and versatile as the ColorTran Mini-Crab Dolly! The ColorTran Mini-Crab Dolly weighs only 293 pounds and measures in at just under 27 inches wide by 39 inches long.

  1. There are some great shots of the colortran dolly in use on Coppola's second or third film, "The Rain People", in the documentary George Lucas directed about it "Filmmaker". You can see it on youtube, it's in 4 parts. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2qqIzwjiIQ
