  2. Hi chaps, I’ve been the sole owner of everything listed, and can vouch that every last screw has been lovingly looked after and is ready to shoot. Would love everything to go as one. £16,000 OBO. Based in London - you’re very welcome to come check it out on set or in my living room. Email emilio dot film at gmail dot com. Cheers for looking! 1) Sachtler Artemis Sled (1.8” post, HD-SDI, 12/24V, great condition) 2) Betz Wave 1 (boxed as new, with sled cables) 3) Transvideo RainbowHD 7” High-Brightness Monitor hybrid bracket (scuffs on the casing, a few sc
  3. Thanks for that, Ken. If that's what we're questioning here: one puts tape under the docking ring, because on this particular sled, it rides up very gradually, and the stage cannot be tilted without a bit of a gap below it. I am glad you have never encountered this minor hindrance in your own day-to-day. Best, Emilio
  4. Hello 'Tete', everyone. I was the seller of this rig. Thought I'd write publicly as it breaks my heart to see something so terrible happen to someone's very expensive investment, so soon after making the deal - but I feel I have to emphasise that there was nothing wrong with that post when I shipped it! I had been using it on set happily and exclusively for three years with some ungodly loads until I opted to upgrade, and it never so much as squeaked (though I often did). It was a fine rig (the tape you refer to, Tete, was there only to provide a bit of grip underneath the docking rig and
  5. Dropping the price to £11,500. Also willing to split the package up, if anybody would like to make an offer for the arm, sled or vest alone. Cheers, E
  6. Hi everyone, I'm curious to hear what real-life advantages people have found to using a thick 2" or 1.8" post, compared to, say, a 1.5" diameter? Is everything noticeably more rigid, even with a short, normal-mode sled? What about with a fully-extended sled? Looking forward to your thoughts, Emilio
  7. Hi chaps, My Ultra 1 is up for sale. I'll be sad to see this one go - it has been my one and only rig for two years, and has never let me down. As you might expect there are some minor cosmetic marks in places like the arm covers or the vest's fabrics, but functionally everything is rock solid and flies smooth as butter. 24V or 12V power comes from V-Locks (not included), which means you can power any camera from the top-stage (cables for Alexa or XLR4 included, amongst others), and the HD-SDI cable I slipped and secured down the post in the beginning has never failed. I'm throwing i
  8. Hi chaps, If anyone has a steel socket block for a Master/Ultra arm lying around, drop me a line, I'd be happy to buy or swap for a titanium socket block.. All the best Emilio Emilio.film@gmail.com
  9. Hi chaps, I have five of the old style, 28V NiCad Ultra 1 batteries and their two Pag chargers (one four-way, one single channel, two XLR "paddles") up for grabs to anybody who cares to pick them up from me in West London. I used these daily until about a year ago when they began to struggle holding their charge and I upgraded to V-Locks, so with a quick re-cell they should be ready to go again. Don't know if that's of much use to anyone these days, but first offer takes them. Cheers, Emilio emilio.film at gmail
  10. As a follow up, anyone know where I might buy a 12" set of these rails? The 6" currently holding my monitor are shorter than I'd like.. Best, E
  11. Hello, My beloved Ultra 1 vest needs a new home - £1200 (€1700). It is used, naturally, but in wonderful condition. Based in West London. Contact me at emilio.film@gmail.com All the best, Emilio
  12. Two offers fell through, happily, so reducing price further to £1400 GBP (or €1900). Third time's a charm! Contact me at emilio.film@gmail.com Best, E
  13. Hello chaps, I'm putting my dear Ultra 1 Vest for sale - it's used, naturally, but in very good condition and ready for many more years of daily use. Asking £1650, no VAT charged. Not much more to say, it's been the most reliable part of my kit forever, I'm only selling as I'm going back-mounted. Happy to ship anywhere in the UK and Europe, or for someone to pick it up from me in West London. Drop me a line for any questions. emilio (dot) film (at) gmail (dot) com. Happy new year, Emilio
  14. Hi chaps, I find myself operating with a long sled more and more these days, as the increased inertia seems to do wonders for my operating - am I in the minority here? Do most prefer the feel of a 'lively' short sled? Would be fascinated to hear some opinions here. Would also love to hear from operators who use Antlers - do they give you a similar inertial feel in the pan axis as my long sled gives me in the tilt axis? And, as a side note, why do I never see them mounted parallel to the camera, or on the bottom of the sled? Apologies for the varied questions, and thanks as always
  15. Hi chaps, before I go to Tiffen, does anybody have a lower docking ring for an Ultra 1 sled (for docking in low-mode) they wouldn't mind getting rid of? I use a Hill dock. Cheers, Emilio
  16. Hi chaps, My Master/Ultra arms looks and performs flawlessly, but I wonder whether it's sensible to take it in for a routine check-up anyway. How often do you guys recommend having your arm looked at? Is there any maintenance I can do myself in the field to make sure the arm lives on another decade? Thanks for your advice, E
