  2. Shameless plug: I make several of these brackets, and also make custom parts as well - go to jerryholway.com to find the most recent part and price list. Most of the brackets mount on rods, but a few mount to a long dovetail... here's one of them that expands for different width rod mounting:

  3. the hardmount system lets you attach the arm to tubes and other places when we are in a vehicle correct? definitely needed and would me more efficient to operate that way then holding it the standard way on my body.. will check final budget.. haha i saw there is a coupon section on the checkout, asked lara if there is such a discount, if there is then will add the hardmount i guess. for low mode, you use the J bracket right? is it easy to go from regular to low mode with your setup? i am adding the dropdown kit for low mode, Lara already quickly replied to my mail, will check what the dropdown kit has. Best, Vicken

  4. Loren, in regards to backpain and Easyrigs, I had the same issue, where even with the vest waist straps super tight it's still a bit lose. What I can reocmmend is getting a windbag / air wedge liek shown in the picture below and place that in the middle of your back at waist height. Then have the AC pump it up to your liking. Massive improvement

  5. Buy & Sell in the SteadicamForum.com Marketplace at your Own Risk. If you receive an email that looks like it's from SteadicamForum.com, make sure the web links in the email are exactly SteadicamForum.com, not something similar. Scammers can make a web site that looks just like SteadicamForum.com but is a fake. If you log in to their fake forum, they'll have your real forum login and can hack your account here on the real forum. If you are tricked into clicking the link the scammer will steal your forum login, change your forum password and email address, and impersonate you in the forum. They will use your account to send out fake login emails to other forum members and try to hack their accounts too. If you are considering buying from a forum member, please please please do some research and make sure they are who they say they are before you send anyone funds, even if they are a long-time forum member. A long time member's account may have been compromised by an impostor. Any legitimate seller or buyer will be happy to provide you with real information. Scammers typically just try to make the sale quickly without answering any complicated questions. Don't rush it. Call the person on the phone and talk in detail about the item and transaction details. Make sure they know what they're talking about. If they're the seller, have them immediately text you photos of the item that you can tell are current. Ask them to pose in the picture. Use a payment method that includes fraud protection. Don't use PayPal's "Gift" option which does not offer any protection. Do not use a bank transfer to send money. Bank transfers are not reversible and do not offer buyer protection. Change your forum password. Use the forum's Two Factor Authentication feature. This protects your account from being compromised. Be safe.

  6. I preordered and received RIGHT AFTER a move with NBA players. Man I wish I had this on that movie. It's a great tool, and I used it on some POV work for the new Halloween coming out this year. Well made, Charles.

  7. Ready Rig Vest- Pro Arms - VEGA- DJI Quick Release - BAG I purchased the vest new, it has never been a rental only used by me and not that much. The Vega has only been used once since purchased, its in perfect condition no wear at all. I have all the parts from the upgrades, check out the pictures. The vest is located in Chicago, I will ship to anywhere in the world on your dollar. If you use paypal, you pay the fee. I will take money order, bank transfer, Venmo, Zelle Shipping: I only charge exactly what the shipper chargers, shipping will be around $100 with insurance. If its less I will refund the amount if its more you refund me. If you have a Fedex account it would be best, if you don’t have one, you should get one. I guarantee the vest to be exactly what I say or your money back. $2800.00 USD NET TO ME, OBO Justin Painter painter4270@me.com

  8. HD 6". That's just me, but I haven't felt a major need to use an 8", unless it's brighter. AND if it definitely doesn't have an internal horizon, then I'd stick with the 6". It's nicer because it's smaller and more nimble, and doesn't become so much of a sail in the wind.

  9. I also own an ArmX1. It‘s been many years that I have tested the G50x and I remember that I liked it, it‘s a good arm for sure. But, for many reasons I would go with the ArmX1, it‘s an amazingly smooth arm, very easy to handle and weighs nothing. On top, I love the mindset of Smartsystem as a company in terms of customer relations. You can always get a hold of them, they‘re very responsive and try to help as quick as possible. So yeah definitely worth its money. Cheers

  10. Hi Josh, I remember being in your shoes clearly - it was the late summer of 2012, I was on my first feature film, having operated “semi-professionally” for about a year, and on two occasions I had to either put the 85mm up, or do a shot on the 50mm in low mode, and I remember both being seemingly impossible. So, you’re not alone in the difficulty of doing long lens work on Steadicam when starting out! I’d say about 1/4 of my work is tighter than a 50mm. Generally I don’t see many lenses above 135mm (though I have from time to time), although especially when doing anamorphic, 135mm is a pretty typical lens, and I regularly fly 100mm spherical lenses. A 65mm or 75mm is a sweet lens for Steadicam, and if you can get well in-sync with your actors, you can produce some truly beautiful tracking shots. I’d say to get to the point where I was completely unafraid of long lenses took me about 3 years of operating, and probably about 5 years to actually be able to back up my big talk with the skills to really pull it off. I will say that with long lenses, not only is it a technique issue, but it is also a physical feat with your body, and there is a significant component that the quality of your rig plays. When I upgraded my rig after that first feature, one of the biggest things I noticed in going to a new gimbal was that there had been some friction and play in my previous gimbal that just destroyed any chance of precision in long lens operating. Even the slightest friction in your gimbal will translate your body’s movements into the lens, and those errors will become much more pronounced on longer lenses. The same goes for your arm, although to a lesser degree (as the issues will be translational rather than angular). Additionally, having your rig trimmed for the tilt you will be holding is crucial, as is keeping your speed consistent. If you’re holding pressure with your hand to hold tilt, any little twitches and tremors in your hand will get into the frame, and if you’re speeding up and slowing down, any pendular swing of the sled will also get in, unless you’re good enough to keep 100% of it out (which very few are, although I think we all hope to get close!). And biggest of all, relax! I even get called out on this by DPs I’ve worked with for a long time. If I’m tense, that tends to telegraph into the shot, and sometimes I just need to take a deep breath and shake out my hands and try again. I hope that helps and gives you a few things to think about! Best of luck on your adventures!

  12. I disagree Doc. For far too long too many people have felt that way and it's gotten us nowhere but the continued declining rates. That needs to change and therefore the "hush hush" on the rates does too. Without full disclosure, things will never change or get better. Keeping secrets isn't the way to improving things for us all.
