diy cineskate

My version of a diy cineskate. Somewhat unstable with heavier lenses. Works fine with a 50mm f1.8. The idea behind this version is I didn't want to take apart my gorilla pod and have a permanent cineskate. I wanted the option to quickly take off the wheels or put them on.


• Gorilla pod SLR Zoom (the Focus should make it more stable)

• Joby ball head

• 3 Bicycle flashlight mounts (

• 3 Inline skate wheels (purchased at Goodwill)

• 3 small wood screws

• 3 washers (optional)

• 3 L brackets cut to I brackets.


I used some Gorilla Glue to secure the screw/washer/mount together. I actually want to to build a diy SpiderTrax Dolly next.
