What’s up Doc? Meet Matthews’ new Docking Stand

Valerie Taylor |

Gimbals have become common on a multitude of shoots. But keeping them safely out of the way and ready for action between shots is essential. To solve the need, we’ve combined our world class Slider Stand with the versatile Dutti Dock. A wonderful platform for making adjustments to your rig, Docking Stand has a much smaller footprint than cumbersome camera carts, allowing you to get as close to set as possible.

The wide-based Slider Stand comes standard with two rocky mountain legs for easy leveling on hills, mountainsides, rocky environments, stairs and other uneven terrain. Great for travel, it collapses to just 25”/64cm and comes with black anodized aerospace-design-inspired braces. With black chrome plating, it is at home on any set, especially when combined with the stealth black Dutti Dock. Constructed of 6061 T6 aircraft-grade aluminum, this docking sled offers a multitude of mounting options including standard cheese plate slots and 18 holes, along with four removable accessory hangers to support a fully loaded gimbal rig.

And if the location is in rough terrain you can add on the heavy-duty Big F'ing Wheels set for a smooth ride that safely locks in position at its destination.
