Will I need extra gear for the dolly op? I want to track with someone to a stairway then have the operator step off and follow up the stairs.  Using a Matthews Round-D-Round Dolly. Will this work?

You can do it, although is there a reason not to be able to just track with the Steadicam?.

 

You need to plan the step off so that there isn't a noticeable drop in lens when the operator steps off the dolly and then goes up the stairs.
