I have experience using both the wheel dolly and the track dolly. I find the wheel dolly is really usesable indoors pretty much on any surface that doesn’t have like crevices between tiles or carpeting. You have a lot of freedom to move around, too, so there’s a lot of room for some creative shots. The track dolly, which you’ll probably have to build yourself or you might be spending some $$, are very nice for outdoor and indoor. You’ve got perfectly smooth shots, but it’s a bitch to set up and that’s why I don’t recommend using it indoors unless you’re only doing one or two shots. You can probably build one of those for under $50 with some metal, skateboard wheels, a plank of wood, and about two PVC pipes (which you can get for like $5 each).
