  1. I'm afraid I was mistaken with the different currencies when I made my initial survey of the second-hand prices of a Titan with 8 canisters and stuff. Sorry, but I was never good at maths... I'm willing to lower the price to 17 000 Euros instead of 19 000. People interested in the Pelican (which can hold the arm, the canisters and any vest) must add 150 €.
  2. Here are some answers to many requests I have received: I forgot to put the arm serial number. I couldn't locate it visually or on the original invoice, but I found it on an old ATA carnet : It's #141 The weight of the cardboard box containing the arm in its soft black bag with its attached small J bracket, the 4 pieces canister bag and a pouch containing 6 extra J-brackets or offset devices, 7 extra posts of different length, two large Allen keys (5/32" and 1/4") and a bag of spare parts is 9,6 kg. Its dimensions are 59 X 40 X 33 cm I can also provide you with a Pelican 1620B with wheels exactly similar to the one I have photographed (it's a spare I will no longer use, and it can store a vest plus the arm and canisters) for an addittionnal price of 150€ on top of the 19 000 Euros for the arm and canisters. This is only optionnal. Its's external dimensions are 630 X 492 X 352 cm and the shipment would then weigh 19,9 kg. My French Zip Code is 94000 is you need a shipment quote.
  3. In order to answer many questions as to what is included or not, and related to shipment, here are some further informations and photos. You must realize that I'm selling all my equiment, all the bells and whistles. as I'm taking another professionnal path. I wish every mechanical piece, mods, every cable, screw or adapter can benefit another operator as it has done to me during the very long time I've flown Steadicams. All this is stored in four flight cases and a stand bag (my SteadyCart, vest, wind killer being already sold, the Titan arm and hard mount about to be). They weigh respectively from top to bottom 5,7 kg, 18 kg, 14,4 kg, 14,9 kg and 21,3 kg, which is a total of 74,3 kg (163,8 pounds). My Zip Code in France is 94000 if you need quotations from shippers. Fly safe, people...
  4. This is originally a Canadian contraption that I bought and heavily customized for my Steadicam needs. I like to have my batteries immediately available in a thermostatic bag , and to have immediate access to my tools and accessories stored in pouches on the side of the Steady-Cart. Moving the docked Steadicam, vest and arm on set is a cinch. You can adjust the height of the docking station and offset it sufficiently for low mode operation. No risk at all to topple over, even with very heavy cameras, as the structure is in metal. ACs usually love it for docking their radio focus, and grips can easily move it, even in cramped locations. I provide a Jerry Hill rain cover. It takes seven minutes to fold it and padlock it. It then can be used to move Flight Cases in airport. It weighs 32 kg (70,5 pounds). I supply the battery thermostatic bag, and three pouches to be attached to the side (there is room for more) and an AFCS flask as a bonus (we drink heavily in France…), but not my tools shown in the pictures. I ask for the whole kit 980 Euros OBO. Willing to ship worldwide, but buyer pays shipping costs and any (PayPal or bank) fee. French residents must add 20% recoverable VAT.

  5. This is a very handy little device, very lightweight, and which can be handled by only one person, even in strong winds. It’s size is 130 X190 cm (51,18” X 74,8”). The aluminum frame can be mounted in 5 minutes. You can use either the black wind filtering material or a provided regular white reflector. All that lives in a soft bag. I ask 500 Euros OBO for it. Willing to ship worldwide, but buyer pays shipping costs and any (PayPal or bank) fee. French residents must add 20% recoverable VAT. You can reach me at jeanmarc.bringuier@gmail.com or through FB.
  6. This sturdy little demon can have its socket block adjusted side to side when loaded, like the Klassen, but unlike the Garfield or the Hill hard-mounts which must rely on three-way levelers. It comes equipped with a universal Michell mount and a Manfrotto clamp which adapts quickly to any tube (quicker than any U-bolts), and which can be affixed to the front or the rear of the blue body with 4 pins, which enables putting it on horizontal or vertical tubes. The big black knob can live on top of it, or beneath it when the whole rig is mounted on speed rails. So no regular or goofy preference. I’ve always liked both, like with a vest. It still has its war paint (who cares?, we are not finicky collectors) but the socket block and the lateral mechanism are smooth and in perfect working order. All that and the necessary tools and nuts & bolts live happily in a Pelican case. I ask 950 Euros OBO for it. Willing to ship worldwide, but buyer pays shipping costs and any (PayPal or bank) fee. French residents must add 20% recoverable VAT. You can reach me at jeanmarc.bringuier@gmail.com or through FB.
  7. Vest and Pelicase already sold. The arm and canisters still available. Thank you
  8. I was the first owner of both items which can be tested in Paris. The GPI Titan pro arm comes with 4 blue and 4 black canisters. It works perfectly and has never caused me any problem. I usually use it with a small post for high mode, along which I have permanently inserted a small angled J bracket. It saves a lot of time when changing modes. The arm and the extra canisters live in their respective bags. On top of the aforementioned small J-bracket, I provide 5 others of different angles, shapes and reach with a total of 6 posts. Included also are the GPI yellow tools, various maintenance pieces, and a two Allen Keys (5/32” and ¼” not shown). I also sell a Sachtler ACT2 vest, which is still followed by Arri. It fits nicely any human configuration, and is in excellent state. It has its own soft bag and comes with a large extra backpack and a very handy pouch fixed on the back which is perfect for walkies or intercom. Arm, canisters and vest can easily live in a provided Pelican 1620B. I ask for the whole kit 21 700 Euros OBO. Willing to ship worldwide, but buyer pays shipping costs and any (PayPal or bank) fee. French residents must add 20% recoverable VAT. I’m ready to sell separately: - Pro Arm in its bag and canisters in their bags for 19 000 Euros OBO. - The vest in its soft bag and inside the Pelican for 2 700 Euros OBO. Also on sale, but separately, are my Ultimate I, my DSD vehicle mount, my California Sunbounce wind killer, my collapsible SteadyCart and a training Betacam camera with weights.

  9. All good things come to an end, and I must find a new owner for my beloved gear. It’s a rugged XCS Ultimate I sled in perfect working condition, but with some wear and tear. I was its first owner and I have customized it for the needs of my long career: Nothing can beat the 19-32” telescoping Carbon Fiber 2” post feel, nor its ruggedness, light weight and rigidity. I provide it with two docking rings and a sled docking station. As my original XCS gimbal went down, I replaced it a couple of years ago by a MK-V Version 3 gimbal, and it was a divine surprise: Well centered, almost frictionless, perfectly balanced even when going nearly neutral, and with its long-throw handle going low mode is a piece of cake. I got rid of the chore of replacing the regular post by a J bracket, and my Titan arm (which I sell separately) permanently integrates a small one in the midsection of a small post. I must confess I was happier than with the famed and expensive original gimbal. I made a second deviation from XCS orthodoxy, by adding a removable Pro Donkey Box II to the Upper Camera Platform. I’m indeed adding 2,3 cm (0,9”) in height, but adjusting side to side at the camera level where the mass is critical for balance is way easier and quicker. I never experienced any vibration due to this add-on, and of course the bottom side to side adjustment is still available (even if I usually remove some of the knobs too protruding for my taste, which doesn’t prevent the fine tuning and can be easily put again). I add a H-shaped MDR bracket which can be affixed onto the UCP or onto the DBII, along with a transmitter bracket which lives on the Low Electonic Housing. In the same spirit, I was not too thrilled by the two original camera 7” camera plates (which I provide nevertheless, along with a vintage Steadicam one and various other plates). A friend of mine designed two 25 cm long (9”84) plates which is are what the doctor ordered: Lightweight, versatile, with the possibility of adding two provided 15 mm focus rods. With the 26 cm long dual extension arms of the monitor (19 mm bars by Genesis Infinity V2) and the integrated fore-and-aft adjustments of the Ultimate, I can deal with any cameras weight distribution and heavy zoom lenses. The LEH (#21) integrates the original PDL and hair menu, Duo and Uno frameliners, but those can only be utilized in composite (through a decimator). The famed XCS Battery Management System still prevails, even though an “off-on” red button has been added to the front. Of course, this sled is HD upgraded & wired and high amperage capable (though not enough for the Alexa 65), with two SDI-BNC connectors at top and bottom. I provide a Transvideo CineMonitor HD8 SBL Evolution with its Virtual Horizon 2 module, its original yoke which interfaces nicely with the Genesis monitor dual arms, and its optional Anton Bauer (and four-pins cannon) battery back for non-Steadicam use. The sled has three D-tap ready Anton Bauer mounting plates, but I also provide two V-lock to AB adaptors, a bracket for two AB batteries on a single space, four 89 Wh HC-Dionics (some in need of recelling), two 158 Wh Dionic 160 type batteries, and an AB quad 2401 charger with the DDM board. The cable package is very extensive (9 pieces for power, 2 unaffected with various provided connectors ready to solder, 2 video & power to video assist cables, one tacho cable). It provides 12 or 24 volts to various cameras (Alexas, Red, Sony D65, different Arri, MovieCam, Panavision) and to MDRs. I also provide a whole collection of focus motor brackets from Jerry Hill or Service Vision,15 mm rods, offset brackets, iris spuds, Arri iris rod clamp, SR3 iris mount, square to round rods, etc, along with a full large bag of Low Mode Brackets, mostly from Jerry Hill, for Moviecam SL or Compact, Panavision, Arri 435 and SR3, Aaton 16 & 35 etc I add a full bag of BNC or Cannon 4 pins cables, many boxes of screws, focus rings, matte-box elements, one electronic and one mechanical maintenance kit and two lasers for precise alignment of the post. The Ultimate lives in a Pelican PL1650B (very safe, but needs internal refoaming only for cosmetic reasons), the accessories in two Pelican PL 1600B, and the charger and batteries in another one. That's a total of 4 hard cases. The sturdy Steadicam stand has its own bag. (I sell apart my collapsible SteadyCart). I ask for the whole lot 17 000 Euros OBO. Willing to ship worldwide, but buyer pays shipping costs and any (PayPal or bank) fee. French residents must add 20% recoverable VAT. You can reach me at jeanmarc.bringuier@gmail.com or through FB
  10. Selling it off at 1500 US $ (or 1335€). Still one of the best monitors on the market in terms of visibility, ruggedness and reliability...
  11. Well, I'm getting to my very last price, otherwise I prefer to keep it as a precious back-up for my Transvideo: 2600 US $ (2295 Euros) buyer pays shipping
