The Cam Dinamico Up is a new version of the popular four-wheeler Cam Dinamico. You can buy the complete Dinamico Up stroller system, or just the chassis with an optional carrycot and/or a car seat. The Dinamico Up is even lighter than the Dinamico. It also has a new, larger shopping basket with a retractable rear side for better access. The wheels with suspension can handle even a rougher terrain. The seat is fully reversible. The backrest and the leg rest can be adjusted separately to a full recline. The longer hood was also improved with a bigger curved sunvisor and a new peek-a-boo window. The spacious carrycot can be used in the car with an optional car kit. The car seat can be attached directly onto the chassis as well. The stroller is even more compact after foldind thanks to the seat that can be folded in half. The whole process is simplified since the safety catches are easier to undo. You can easily carry the folded stroller with the added transport handle.

It is available in various design; it was also released in the limited black-and-white elegant Col. 720 edition.

The best stroller in the world.

  • Lightweight
  • Compact
  • Handles even rougher roads (we haven't been in the woods with it)
  • Purchase adapters for the bassinet and the ability to travel with it in the car
  • Large storage basket
  • Positioning of the bassinet
  • Reclining positioning in the seat unit
  • Reversible seat
  • Suspension
  • Rain cover included
  • Not stable pushchair canopy
  • Slightly rattling front wheels
  • Taller people may stumble and kick the rear axle - you should to try it out before buying

I've had the Cam Dinamico Up for almost a year and a half now. I liked it right away.

I think the carrycot is very neat, roomy, my little one was fine in there for 8 months. It can be inclined, so it doesn't have to be fully lying down - which is appreciated when the baby is older, but can't sit up fully yet and wants to look around now and then. When the baby is lying down, I would like a larger canopy, but we bought a sun shade.

The seat already looks more floppy. At first glance it is more suitable for summer, it blows in a bit, but if you buy a good footmuff, or if you attach it to the canopy on the stroller with additional studs, there is no problem (I didn't use the studs, though). The seat unit is reversible, reclining, spacious enough for sleeping even for a larger child. The positioning of the legs is also great. The belly bar can be removed from one side, the other, or even the whole thing. But it is not a completely upright seat.

We didn't use the car seat much as we bought adapters for the bassinet and traveled with it. It's great because the baby shouldn't be in the car seat for more than 2 hours, so for onward journeys it's the perfect convenience of this stroller. Also, when our little one fell asleep in the car, we put the bassinet on the stroller and were able to continue our walk.

The rear inflatable wheels are awesome, we didn't have a puncture once. The front ones rattle a bit, but it's nothing terrible. The pushchair can handle gravel paths, smaller pebbles, tiled paths. Admittedly, we haven't used it on dirt roads or in the woods. We took the little one in the carrier there. All the wheels are individually sprung.

The storage basket is quite large.

I also chose it because we don't have an elevator and I needed to carry it upstairs, and this one was at a reasonable weight. It is lightweight and fairly stackable relative to other 3in1 systems.

We have used both the bassinet and the seat version in the summer and in the snow. So far, it's held up, though admittedly there hasn't been any calamity.. I find the pram mode feels more stable than the pushchair mode.

The pushchair doesn't really fit a footmuff with an apron. We went without the apronr in the winter and made use of it in the spring.

I appreciated the bassinet the most

3
  • spacious bassinet
  • the bassinet cover can be unzipped on the 2016 model and serves as a mosquito net
  • there is also a net on the back of the canopy
  • the bassinet can also be used with the harness for transport by car
  • the pram has suspensions
  • spacious shopping basket
  • the seat lasts a very long time
  • squeaks a lot after a while
  • the car seat is a very cheap version, it holds the head badly, it is certainly not safe for longer travels
  • the seat part is not aesthetic, the canopy is not fully attached to the seat and flies, it is quite creased
  • the belts in the seat are too cheap and flimsy

In general, it's a pretty good pram. The bassinet I thought was great, but my daughter was born on a cold winter and the front wheels barely skidded in the snow - we didn't get far from the apartment building. The bassinet was roomy, and with a mesh ventilation part, it was great in the summer.

The pram's not big, which was fine with me. We also fit in the small lift.

The car seat is horrible for me, the baby flew around in it, without the newborn insert it was unusable for us - there are much safer car seats in my opinion. The seat part was used the most, although initially I was very disappointed with it. It is very roomy, baby can be in there for a very long time. For the undemanding mom it can be just fine.

Shopping basket is awesome - since I don't have a car, it carried big purchases, a running bike, a million things. I actually liked the stroller, but I appreciated the bassinet the most. Least of all the car seat. After two years, it squeaks a lot. But it was used nonstop daily. With the second child, I'm using the bassinet again, but I'll check out a pushchair for the winter. I've already replaced the car seat and I have to say it's incomparable.

In retrospect, it's a bit of an expensive investment for a pram (just a bassinet), since I don't use the pushchair part and the car seat for the second time.

Hľadali sme hlavne kočík na zimu

  • Large carrycot
  • Large shopping basket
  • Easy to fold pushchair setup into the car
  • Large wheels, great for winter and bad trails
  • Adjustable carrycot, can also be used as a cradle
  • Heavy-ish car seat

We bought the stroller based on reviews on the internet. We were mainly looking for a stroller for winter, as our little one was born in November. We are very satisfied with the stroller. It has a large carrycot where we could fit our little one even in a thick footmuff, which I think is a big plus, as some strollers have very small carrycot.

It was very easy to drive in the winter, even in the snow, and it handles uneven pavement super well too. The carrycot is reclining, so we didn't have to have a reflux cushion. What's also cool is that when I had the little one down and needed to put him to sleep, I took the carrycot, put it on the floor, and it served as a cradle because it has a system that makes the carrycot rock. We also used the car seat for a long time. That's on the heavy side without the baby even, so it's a chore to carry the car seat with the baby in your hands.

And we are currently using the pushchair part. The latter is great in that it puts the whole stroller together in the car, we don't have to disconnect the seat part, which I've noticed not all strollers have that way. Also a big plus is that it has a large shopping basket where I can fit a LOT compared to other mums and their baskets. You need to watch the videos for this stroller, and you will definitely get it. For us, great satisfaction.

  • Large, spacious bassinet
  • ample basket space
  • large, inflatable rear wheels with excellent suspension allowed us to go over anything
  • no need for adapters (bassinet, seat unit, car seat) 👍
  • our one (bought 2016) had a bad canopy, imo
  • not enough space, compared to other strollers we owned

Our review is divided into two parts, first about the bassinet and car seat and the second about the seat.

About the bassinet, I admit, we could not have chosen better. Stable, and at the same time relatively light chassis with a large shopping basket. Attaching the car seat or the bassinet directly to the frame without the need for adapters... and the bassinet is one of the largest on the market. The son was still using it even when wearing the size 74/80 plus cosytoes inside.

It's a pity that the seat unit is not as good. We tried it for two days and bought another stroller after that. The biggest disadvantage for me was that when my son was lying, the roof on the side of the stroller did not completely cover him (there were these 'cracks' through which the wind was blowing in during a nap...). We rather went home. The canopy of the newer models seems better, however, so this problem was already been solved, I believe.

For me, a beautiful pram, which was also praised by strangers on the street, but as a pushchair, not the best.

  • Easy to push, even with one hand
  • Lightweight
  • Easy to fold and compact
  • The suspension is soft and almost rockable
  • Large nappy bag
  • Spacious bassinet with inclining function
  • Accessories included
  • Seat reclines fully
  • Great price
  • Sturdy
  • Brake
  • Seat unit's canopy
  • Noisy front wheels

We were stroller system-hunting for a long time, and this was the only model that I liked - and also my husband liked. The only one to not rattle in my hands already in the shop. We walked many, many miles with it, and used it for both of our children, and now I decided to write a review of it for those undecided parents.

The one-handed pushing was a decisive factor for us - just as the easy folding and the low weight were. The large changing bag and basket (compared to other systems) combined with the small footprint fitting into our small elevator are also great advantages... and the carrycot is so spacious! We had one of our children in it for about 9 months.

Everything can be washed - after a few tries, the removal of the fabrics will take you only a few minutes. The color stays - it didn't fade even after multiple washing. The upholstery is secured with studs in some places, and some of the studs are very stiff to click together (or apart)...

The frame is very easy to fold - and you don't need to click the seat off to fold it. The front wheels are not inflatable, and they get noisy on uneven terrain. After some time, it annoyed me, but my kids didn't mind at all. You can lock them not to swivel, which was a nice thing to do when you leave the pram on your balcony to get your child to sleep - but even more so in the snow. Then, it's priceless. The suspension is good enough - even for rocking your baby. The brake works so that you need to step on the red pedal on the right side to activate it and to step on the left green pedal to release it. Not always it clicks into the wheel, so you have to be careful to check if you used the brake properly, and the pram is stopped. Those rear inflatable wheels are excellent, however, and you can remove them easily to make more space in your trunk. We have stairs in your building, and I was getting the pram over them on those rear wheels even with the baby inside - and it held up well.

The carrycot is long, spacious, and with inclinable backrest inside. That was great when the baby got sick or suffered from reflux. The incline is operated with this lever, which takes a little bit of practice, but when you get it in your hand, it' easy enough. The canopy works just fine - I just minded the fact that after washing the fabric, I couldn't fit the rod well enough to be as proper-looking as before. To take it out, I had to use a knife - it's impossible otherwise, and the same goes for the basket and seat canopy. The carrycot apron has this flap that you lift in case of wind to protect the baby - the system was rather simple - I'd say "dumb", but it worked ok, so whatever. The clicking on the chassis was easy and very secure, in my opinion - it holds in 4 points, which is a big plus compared to other systems (they normally only have 2 securing points). No risk of clicking in only one side and the other side falling to the side... always at least one of the two points on each side click in, and you hear it clicking and holding well.

The car seat is basic, and I don't like how the canopy is secured into the base - if you remove it, there are these inesthetic holes. A big advantage is its clicking right on the chassis - no need to buy or search for extra adapters. We mainly used it for our trips to the pediatrician or shops - no need to move the baby out of it.

The seat is comfortable for the baby - and large enough. It adjusts fully and offers a lay-flat position for napping. The canopy is large, but it's not that sturdy - I would reinforce it for sure if I were the manufacturer. The bumper bar is covered in plastic, which is wipe-clean, no need to wash anything. I like that it's not too high up - I mind those that are so there's too much space between them and the seat. You cannot fit a footmuff and the apron at the same time, but it's not needed. The apron is secured with studs; it worked well for us. The rain cover fits the seat as well as the carrycot - no need to buy anything separately. The seat clicks on parent- and forward-facing, but facing the parent, the center of gravity changes, and the push is not as comfortable - and to add to it, when the child is laying, it's not completely horizontal, and it slides down a bit. World-facing, everything is peachy. The harness is very basic - it could be better. A huge plus for me was the upright position of the seat - no angles and half-sitting like other seat units offer.

Overall, an excellent system for good money.

That large bassinet is perfect, but the front wheels rattle quite a bit.

  • Large, spacious carrycot
  • Heavy

Every mother needs something else. For me, that large carrycot was great to use, but I didn't use the seat unit at all... I found the chassis too heavy, as well.

  • Large carrycot
  • Backrest adjustment in the carrycot
  • Sturdy chassis
  • A lot of accessories
  • Great storage space
  • Washable textiles
  • Easy reclining of the seat (and it lays flat)
  • Large hoods - carrycot as well as the seat
  • Very easy to push, when the sidewalk is in good condition
  • So hard to get up even a small curb
  • Horrible in snow
  • Very hard-to-do clips securing the textiles
  • Heavy
  • Difficult, two-handed folding and unfolding
  • Needs getting used to

We owned the Cam Dinamico Up 2016. It was bought over the net because I didn't have the nerves to pick the perfect stroller system at a reasonable price in a normal shop. But how is it really? Actually, it's quite good, and for a nice price. The carrycot is super large. I was using it for eight months with my son.

The carrycot is really cool. It features backrest adjustment; everything is fully washable. What I actually never did 😂 The backrest positioning is, however, not so easy to do - I felt like I was too weak to do it. And those fastening studs... It was so hard to click it in as it should. It just needs to be used to loosen up a little.

The seat part is not bad. It features a large hood that we, unfortunately, bent when we were putting the stroller in the car. The positioning of the seat unit is a hundred times better, though. The fastening studs are also super hard to do, but the seat textiles can also be washed.

The car seat is quite typical - there is a removable newborn insert. When I put my not even 3kg son in there, he was quite lost in it. We had to put in more padding so that he wouldn't be all twisted. The car seat also features a hood, but not very suitable for older children. It is more straight and easy to remove, but the places where it goes in are kinda sharp - we even ruined one pair of trousers on it :-D

Clicking / unclicking the carrycot, seat part, car seat on and off the chassis is easy, just needs a third hand. On each side there is a button that must be pressed to release. Which, with some practice, I learned to do 😂

The chassis is very sturdy, good quality. But I guess it's not for weaker people. I always thought that a stroller should get up a 2cm curb or a bump on the road just so; however, my fantasy was not right. When it is empty, the getting up a bump is ok and fairly smooth, but once it is loaded with a child, I have to push against the rear wheels to get the front wheels up. I guess I'm too weak to do that. In the snow, it's quite a catastrophe - first, the wheels get completely stuck. My husband, however, did not have problems like this - probably he's just stronger, 🙂 and it's just heavy for me. To fold it is also a struggle, as well as the unfolding. A folded Dinamino Up occupied our entire trunk.

The front-wheel suspension is not for rocking. Probably only to absorb some shocks. The brakes kind of need a certificate to use :-D On each side of the rear wheels, there are two colored thingies. They only need to be pushed down! Not up, no, no! Or you may break them! The red is activating the brake, and when you need to release it, you must press the green one. I always had to think twice about it - because you need it to click in its place (only when it goes in, it really brakes). But you need some practice to do it properly and, hopefully, easily enough. There is storage space in the bottom part. I write storage 'space' because it is no net or bag. It is really solid, no scraping it on the ground. It is so nice to go whipping with this, and it even can be pressed down for better access. The basket is also fully washable.
