Description Videos
The Philip Bloom Pocket Dolly Carbon is a revolutionary camera slider system that features incredibly durable and lightweight carbon fiber construction and continues to provide the buttery smooth linear camera movement of the original Philip Bloom Pocket Dolly. Carbon fiber, with its low weight and resistance to temperature change and thermal expansion make it an ideal material for precision tools like camera sliders. The Philip Bloom Pocket Dolly Carbon comes as a bundled package specifically designed by Philip Bloom and also features a rich polished black finish with carbon fiber inlays and accents.

The Philip Bloom Signature Series Pocket Dolly™ Carbon is available in three lengths: Standard, Traveler or Mini.

Smooth & Quiet Ride

The Philip Bloom Carbon is smoother than other linear sliders due to its ball bearing and wheel design. But smooth, precise motion on a slider does not matter if it is loud. Unlike other metal bearing sliders on the market, our proprietary design and materials will get you precise, smooth motion in a durable product that is perfectly quiet. In addition, with its belt drive system you have the option to combine with one of our motion control systems including elektraDRIVE and CineDrive.

Lightweight Carbon
Fiber Rails & Inlays
Carbon Fiber, with its high strength, low weight, resistance to temperature change and thermal expansion make it an ideal material for precision tools like camera sliders.

Adjustable Drag Control

Everyone knows how important fluid drag controls are to tripod heads, so why not add the same idea to a slider? Now you can have that same ultra-smooth resistance to control your motion ensuring a perfect shot.

Vertical & Angled Shots
No need for additional kits to do vertical or angled shots. With several ways of mounting to tripod heads, ball mounts and so forth, you can easily set up the slider in endless configurations.

100% Custom Made

Our wheel & rail system is what really sets us apart from other sliders on the market. We, like other slider manufactures, started out with off-the-shelf industrial/commercial linear glide systems, but soon found out that if we were to attain perfection we would have to design and precision-machine our sliders from scratch. So, unlike other slider manufacturers, we have done just that. Our precision-machined, laser-tested-rails are perfectly straight and eliminate any twist or variation in rail width that could potentially cause pulsing. Achieving vertical and angle shots are no problem due to wheels and bearings that give what can only be described as a "buttery smooth" feel that is unmatched.

Easily mount to our Hercules 2.0 Head or Ball Mount or even your own tripod head with several mounting holes to choose from.

For customers who like to put their own spin on things, the Philip Bloom line of sliders is equipped with a crank handle.

Choose from various accessories, such as the Kessler Kwik Release, to add-on to your slider. Since it is modular, you can add-on now, or later.

Combine with any of our motion control tools to enhance your rig. Whether you choose to utilize an electraDRIVE bundle or the CineDrive motion control system, the Philip Bloom Carbon works with them all.

Standard size
"Great for time-lapse, actually the best of the three for time-lapse, but not the best one for hand manual operation or for traveling. The 3 foot struggles to go in most suitcases, I put mine in a snowboard bag, but if you don’t fly much it’s the most versatile, though it has two big caveats. One I have already mentioned, the other is that mounting it on a tripod can be tricky due to its length, and this means that manual operation can be a bit tricky. I recommend a tripod at each end, or just on one end with a monopod or light stand at the other. It does need extra support as it’s long. If you have a heavy duty tripod or a Hercules head, then you can use just one." - Philip Bloom

Traveler size
"..is the best compromise of the three. Just long enough for timelapse…I use it all the time…Perfect length for travelling as it goes in my suitcase no problems. Also fits on one tripod perfectly (well a video tripod that is!). So little balance issues here. This is the one I recommend to most. It’s fantastic!" - Philip Bloom

Mini size
"..is new and what I have been using on the shoots below. I don’t recommend this for timelapse as it’s a bit too short but for video this is brilliant. Long enough for those reveals and great for transportation. I am in love with the black Bloom mini and I use it on everything now…much to the upset of the bigger ones!" - Philip Bloom
