  9. Happy New Year to all! I hope you are all sobering up enough to fly straight and level. Since there are so many requests to separate the monitors and levels, I will also sell the sled without them. Just make an offer on sled, monitors, both, whatever strikes your fancy!

  12. Hi all, About 3 years ago, I bought a Provid 2 system and modified it to HD, so as to serve me as a back up. I have decided to put it up for sale. It's a sled for light to medium camera set ups that can balance very easily in static and dynamic mode. - This system is fully functional, clean and well maintained & it is wired with contemporary quality wires. It's a 12volt sled. - The gimbal is like new and can handle loads up to 12kg with the correct arm. - The sled has 1 HD and 1 SD line down the post, which is a fixed one (not telescoping) and 3x Lemo 0B 4pins (FGG.0B.304) for 12v power and Video & 2x Lemo1B 3pins (FGG.1B.303) for 12v power. These Lemo have the same pin outs like the MK-V sleds (http://www.mk-v.com/?p=556). - The monitor bracket is made out of aluminium and carbon fiber parts and it is vey light and strong with no vibrations. It can be adjusted to accommodate other monitors too and it can keep the dynamic balance of the sled if you re-adjust the monitor. - The monitor that comes with the sled is a Marshall XHB with 800nits of brightness and works only in SD mode. This comes as a gift with the sled, so as the monitor bracket doesn't ship empty. - Included with the sled is the original Thermodyne case with pick'n'puck foam from Pelican, that can fit the sled and many other pieces of equipment above it. Also, 2 dovetail plates are included, along with some basic cables + a custom made rain cover for the lower sled. - The battery, the stand and the docking bracket that are in the pictures are not included in the sale. Price for the sled & accessories: 3.000€ + shipping. The equipment is located in Greece. Please message me for questions in here or at: haris_pallas@yahoo.gr Thank you, - Haris -

  13. Hey Mate, I'm in the exact same boat as I've (in the last 6 months) bought a used A30 rig with the intent of learning on it, primarily practising at home. It serves as a great way to learn the basics; balance, movements, a lot of trial and error.. all that stuff. Additionally, I would buy the Steadicam Operators Handbook as it's a super useful bible as you go about your stuff. I would say that you shouldn't underestimate how quickly the jobs will come your way, as I started getting asked to do music videos real quick, whereas like you I assumed I'd have a long time to train before stepping into it properly. If you optimise it correctly, the A30 can fly an Alexa Mini Classic or Mini LF (although close to pushing it on the LF) depending on lens choice and optimisation of camera accessories. I have my rig set up so that the sled with the monitor and single battery weighs 4.6kg, giving my 9kg left for total camera payload, coming to a total of 13.6kg or 30lbs. I also tend to bring a scale to set to ensure that the setup is of an appropriate weight just so as not to push the rig too hard. I've managed to run the Mini Classic with Arri mini motors (F + I) and Cine RT, with a mattebox (LMB4x5), rods, vlock plate and Bebop Micro on the back (definitely your best bet as they weigh nothing and last for ages), Canon FD primes and obviously taken off any top handle/EVF type accessory that wasnt absolutely necessary and it came in at around 8kg which was great. With the Mini LF I could create a similar setup with Canon Sumire (i think) primes on one job and Super Speeds (Zeiss) on another, although coming much closer to the max 9kg payload, and possibly on the last one slightly surpassing it. I will say that it's very important to liaise with your 1st AC's and DP's prior to the shoot to figure out what will be on the camera come shoot day, and definitely attend some sort of pre production with either of them so that you can build the rig and figure it all out. Recently I've found that even when maxed out, the arm is only at roughly half tension, which you can tell from where the bearings sit along those gaps at the start of each arm section.. as you add tension they move upwards and vice versa. Though I wouldn't recommend adding much more weight it does seem the arm may be capable of it, however the sled, particularly in the gimbal handle may not. I believe the bottleneck may lie in the pins that hold the different axis. If not that, the top stage clamp would possibly be a liability, as on the last one I found I could easily push the camera along the stage with the clamp locked. I read here yesterday that there is a small allen key slot somewhere that enables you to tighten it, so perhaps mine has just come slightly loose. I'll have a look tonight and see if that's true. One final point (and stitch-up) is that when optimised this way, the rig is extremely top heavy. In order to have an appropriate drop time (ish...), the gimbal handle has to be so close to the top stage.. basically as close as you can get it and still fit it into the docking bracket. I've recently (lazily) been ignoring the drop time and just balancing fore-aft and side-side and then spinning it to find my dynamic balance is very close to spot on, presumably because the rig is so top heavy with the gimbal so close to the top anyway. I'm yet to figure out a solution to this as I'm primarily a 2nd AC and working a lot at the moment. Anyway, this all means that the rig doesn't sit as high as you may want it went holding it, which hasn't been so much of a problem for me as of yet as I'm quite tall. You could work around this problem by user a longer post perhaps, maybe a 15cm one from the Tiffen store, but I've yet to try that. Also the gimbal locking knob I've found to be a piece of s***. Mine broke and sheared all of its threads, and upon buying a replacement from Tiffen realised that the thread size of the collar that goes around the post to tighten it is a different size to the knob that went in there... I took it to the engineer at Panavision and we couldn't really figure it out, aside from the fact that there was seemingly a heli-coil between the collar that the screw would bite into that would tighten it, but i still dont really know how that works... What I've done as a replacement and will continue to do since i can tighten it a LOT more, is to use a nut and a bolt to tighten the collar. Simply a bolt long enough to go through the collar and wide enough to fit fairly snug (although it doesn't bite) through the hole, and a nut on the other end to tighten it. I use a combination of a shifter and a 3mm allen T tool to tighen/loosen it. This does make it a fair bit harder to change it on the fly, and in terms of switching to low mode, which I hate, I would use pre production or any experience you have where the rig is maxed out to find where your high mode/low mode gimbal positions are, and mark them on the sled for future reference. Anyway, hopefully your knob doesn't break. I will also add, in terms of monitor choice, that recently SMALLHD have released their OS5 software for most of their monitors, notably the newish line of 7" touch monitors. A major takeaway from this is the addition of a horizon indicator for all of these models, with a great deal of customisation. I've just bought a Cine7 for this exact reason, as it's relatively cheap compared to say a transvideo monitor, you can mount it easily, and it has the one tool on it you need. It's also very bright (1800 nits) and nice and light. In future you'd be able to use it as an onboard operating monitor for production mode and get it onto jobs as a rental, so once you eventually, way down the line, move to likely a Transvideo 8", the smallHD would still be useful. Anyway that's all I have for now in terms of info (I think), so good luck mate! Hope this all helps.
