  1. And the price difference. Forgot that one.
  2. So I guess the biggest questions are; 1) If the volt electronics in the top stage go down. Do you have to send in the whole top stage, as they are integrated into the top stage. 2) The big question. Can it carry an Alexa 65 or LF?... Or other big cinema cameras. Since the M1 and M2 are the same gimbal.
  3. Questions concerning the Tiffen M2. I will be upgrading to a Tiffen sled latter this year, and have (had) my sights set on an M1. Now here is the M2. The M2 really interests me. I have read all the literature I can find on it which other than the Tiffen page isn’t much. As it is newer. I like the modularity of its design as well, and know it’s less expensive than an M1. I have read a bit on the forum, stating that it doesn’t cary the same payload as the M1. My work tends to be on features with larger builds. Example, I just finished a show with the Arri LF. Where I flew it for several months. So I suppose my question is, can the M2 fly an LF type camera? And if so can it do it comfortably. Or should I just put my thoughts about the M2 aside and stay focused on the M1. Any advice or thoughts on the matter are greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  10. Call Terry West in L.A. He completely modified mine for less than that. That's for the sled. Then call Robert Luna. also in L.A. He will take carer of your gimbal and arm servicing. My Master was the same way as yours sound to be when I first bought it. Now the thing is bomb proof and amazing. Also, take off the monitor bracket, and get a Cam-Jam monitor yoke. Hope that all helps.
  11. My sled is on a show right now. But it’ll have to home latter this week. Drop me your email and I’ll send you a video. I won’t actually “do” it, as it’s already balanced. But I’ll show you the steps in the video.
  12. So I Spoke with Robert Luna. He was very helpful. I’m going to assume you have a master sled. So what you want to do is take a little SHARP pointed knife. And pop off the caps on the side of the gimbal. They came off and go back on surprisingly easy. Inside you’ll see a flat head screw in each each side. Put your sled on the balance pin with weigh and balance it to the side would normally balance to. I did static, as well as dynamic. As much as I could with it out of balance anyway. Then spin it ninety degrees. If it’s out of balance, it will list to one side. I.e. front to back. You want to turn the opposing screw to “walk you sled towards that side on the gimbal that it’s falling away from. Do the same amount to the opposite side in reverse. It helped me to kind of lift the sled from the bottom when doing this. To get some weight off the gimbal. The screws are tight. Do it it SMALL increments. Then rebalance the sled at that point. And continue from there. You are essentially walking the sled to the appropriate spot on the gimbal. Be patient and take your time. I got mine dead centered. Hope that helps. Good luck!
  13. Hi All, So I just had my gimbal serviced. When I got it back, I went to balance it, and it is very out of balance, I can static balance it fine. But when spun 180 degrees, it tilts back quite severely. I chased it around for about an hour (rebalancing to where it would land). Same thing every time. Does anyone know how I can balance this myself? Please say it's easy. Any help, and the sooner the better, would be GREATLY appreciated, as I obviously need this for work. Thank you in advance.
