    Paddocks Radical Options

    Legendary account, well done Erwin!! This entry was published at a volatile and fast changing 5 years period in the world history of "Steadicams". Jim Bartell's BFD was born (1999) - unbelievable peice of equipment! Lynn Nicholson's "Alien" was shown to the world 4 years prior. The beginning of a new 'radical option' [I personally tried it at Lynn's Las Vegas appartment (1999), before Howard Smith did ;)] Glidecam produced the 1st Body-Mounted System for cameras 10 lbs and under. (1998) Cinema Products/Steadicam Bankrupt (2000) Sachtler Artemis (formerly know as the 'Eclipse' system, developed by Curt Schaller of the company 'Move' Stabilizers) was announced at NAB 3 years prior (2001). MK-V had recently arrived on the market from the UK. Tiffen acquires Cinema Products (2002) Tiffen/Steadicam had just filed Bankruptcy (2003) for the 2nd time. Ed Di Giulio (legend and Founder of Cinema Products) passed way (2004) - End of an Era! ###
  11. Don't forget the Neutral "No-Drop Time" method! Just saying some operators like a 8-9 second drop time ;) Sounds like you could use a workshop. Gus, have you considered attending a Steadicam Workshop or personal training... It will make a world of difference and 100% worth the cost. There many skilled pros that will work with you. https://steadicamlessons.com/

    Balance issue

    Thanks Felix! As Lisa mentioned, it could be a combination of a few things; case in point. That being said. Rule #1 if there is 'play' in any of the components, that is 100% not-good and should be addressed asap. As an Operator, always verify that each component is 'Play-Free', by applying torsion to each joint, and hand testing. "visually" test, looking for movement or 'play' "listen' for 'play' - "clicking sounds, etc" are an indication of movement, while torsion is applied "feel" for 'play' - vibrations can also indicate 'play' At the end of the day all working parts should be in 'fixed' positions. ....AND always verify that the Gimbal of the Sled is Concentric and calibrated, which is best tested with 'Slow' Drop Time (i.e 5 to 7+ seconds - depending how sensitive you want the Vertical Axis to be during this test) I do NOT recommend Neutral Balance for Gimbal testing. Fly Safe!
  23. Let me know if you're still having issues, or if your questions has not been significantly resolved.  I've been working on technical aspects and Sled function/design for over 22 years, also attended and conducted countless training classes/course, (military, pro broadcast, cine, you name it!)  Just want to give you some of my credentials.  I was trained by the Best!   I am not terribly frequent to this forum, however, I have noticed there is lots of mis-information, confusion and even uncertainty on this forum.... So I decided to DIVE-IN and try and help folks out!

    Just to be clear; I work for Glidecam Industries, Inc. (for 23 Years) However, I am not try to selling anything on providing information to help you.   Call me if you need information on how these gimbals are designed and built at 1-781-585-7900.   I've "fixed" calibrated, reset, re-built and successfully Solved everyone of the issues I've run into on Gimbal (mis-alignment)

    Have a great weekend!
