Hybrid IV Camera Dolly

The Hybrid IV is the very latest piece of camera dolly equipment we offer, the result of over fourty years of design evolution spent listening to industry feedback from Grips and production professionals, it is the most versatile and adaptable camera dolly available to today, packed with features and accessories.




If you are looking for equipment that will add production value to your project because you need it to save you time, or you need equipment that is scalable and versatile both in the studio or on location, then the Hybrid IV is designed to take on the creative challenges you throw at it and deliver.

At the centre of the new design are brand new wheel and axels (the Hybrid IV can work on several gauges of track in near silence), a more accurate, silent and smooth hydraulic lifting arm (with extra lifting power) and greater maneuverability thanks to three modes of steering. The Hybrid IV is compatible with a wide range of our Track, Jib Arms and Vibration Isolators.

The Hybrid IV benefits from a new lifting mode when using the Hydraulic arm. Float Mode is something operators will love for moves where a change in arm height needs a subtle and flowing movement.

The Hybrid IV comes with an impressive array of standard accessories including, the new Quick Jack system (see video), risers for the camera head and Hi/Lo plates, a dedicated nose seat, quick-release walk around boards and platforms for use with the Hydraulic arm.

The Hi/Lo Plate can be under slung or over-slung with the aid of a registering pin and there is also a 90 degree bracket, so you can achieve a wide range of off-axis camera positions at different heights.

The Hybrid IV is a camera Dolly for 21st century production, capable of carrying large and small camera packages, the design allows you to quickly and easily switch between studio and real world locations and it’s packed with time saving features to make your job easier. Watch the Hybrid IV video to learn more about why this is such a great addition to the Chapman UK Fleet.
