    Arri LF/PRO Power Problem

    Camera powered down or stopped recording? Were you rolling endlessly? I have seen that camera overheat and stop recording (in studio mode). You can’t roll endlessly but I think you’re talking strictly power.

    Game changing Betz Modification

    This is great. Can you please post additional photos? Front and side views? I wonder if there is a way to do this with the DB3 as well?

    XCS Basic HD PDL

    That is a nice saving on a great level. I already own one and am tempted for my second sled, but can't justify it. Someone grab this!

    Buying old vs new - cheap rigs- Steadicam Master Series

    What Janice says! Nothing wrong with older rigs - just make sure they don't vibrate or are so different from newer models that ACs want to run away (don't under estimate how much work they get you). Indeed, look at used PRO sleds too.

    WTB XCS Ergo Handle GOOFY

    A few notes for what it is worth... Greg still has a few of the "Goofy" ergo handles left (see what I did there) $1800. Right handed ones are sold out. This is one of the most wonderful inventions ever and may become extinct once all are sold out as the price of production has gone beyond reasonable.

    Weight cages and Plates

    Janice, Julian, Julian, Janice. Just thought I'd throw down an intro since you're both wonderful people. Janice, Julian was at one time a fabulous focus puller and 1st AC before he moved up and bought a rig. Don't get to see him as much these days, but a fine lad!

    Framing aesthetics question

    Ditto to Jerry.

    Steadicam LA Group Discount at Media Blackout

    Alan, this is great. Too bad I didn't see it sooner as I'm way behind (just wrapped a film yesterday). So glad you're catching up! Thank you!

    Wave-1 and Gyro combination?

    I've been using a single KS-4 mounted horizontally under the gimbal for pan with the Wave on occasion. Works great. Yesterday, for some long lens eCar stuff, I mounted two KS-4s (one horizontal and one vertical on the post) with the Wave. Heavy set top cause of the zoom lens, but I wasn't carrying the weight!

    MK-V Gen 4 electronics question

    Hey guys, need to power an AR Omega from my sled (to use as a roll cage only). The AR comes with MK-V power cables (for Version 4 electronics). Can anyone confirm that they are the same as the PRO Cine (NOT CineLive)? Lemo 3 Pin ERA-1S-303 12/24 port. Pin 1 24V, Pin 2 Grd, Pin 3 12V.
  11. Jerry Hill Arri Alexa+ Steadicam Plate (AKA Cinematic Precision). This is the bottom mounting plate to bridge the shoulder cut out of the camera (requires BPA-1 or equivalent on the Alexa). Screws into front of the body and locates in the shoe in the rear. This replaces your Steadicam dovetail . So it mounts directly. Lots of adjustment for different camera configurations. Plus (+) it will also work with the Red camera and you can remove the locating pin and mount it to the Sony Quick release plate. Spare "foot" included as well as the Alexa Studio adapter. $375US.

    What is the price point anyway? Just curious (happy PRO arm owner).

    FS: XCS Monitor Bracket.

    FS: XCS Monitor Bracket. This is the original style XCS telescoping monitor bracket. Single tube style so its very rigid! Native 2" post clamp but you can buy reducers for other size posts from various sources. $450US.
  14. For Sale: Cam-Tech Alexa/Sony plate (for Alexa, you'll still need a BPA-1 or equivalent of course). Please note, I filed down the red quick release lever to prevent accidental release! You can still get to it with a finger tip or screw driver though. I also elongated the "safety groove" for easier balance. Costs over $700US new. $495US.

    Ozzie, I have a set. Email me.

    The great Exodus of the Wave1

    I'd hardly call it a "great Exodus" considering they have sold hundreds of them. Yes, I have seen a handful of them come up for sale recently. I know of two cases where it was simply because the operators were not using them (both of these guys are seasoned vets). Other people? I'm guessing they bought the M1V, but who knows???? I still have one and am not selling it any time soon. It works very well and I have no interest in attaching a jib like device to my body (as much respect as I have for the Trinity).

    TB-6 Question

    Some people are still using them but certainly the number has declined. I'd imagine most people already have that plate but I'd list them anyway!

    TB 6 Monitor / PDL and some custom misc cables

    Oh man..... I kind of want her back but I just sold my down converter. Great monitor. Let me know who buys it please!

    PRO 7" plate in Toronto?

    Ozzie, I have extras I'm happy to shed if you want to ship one form NYC.

    Sony F65 - What Concerns Us

    Dave, sorry man - was not aware of the injury. Glad you’re back in the saddle. Yes, grab a Decimator of your own (I guess I could sell you my Decimator 1 if you want??? I’ll likely never use it again since I don’t own any SD monitors anymore, but I still have mine in a case with an SD transmitter and receiver somewhere). Anyway, in your adbsense, the world moved to HD. I would NOT assume/except Production to carry a down converter going forth. It’s an HD world baby!

    Sony F65 - What Concerns Us

    Hmmm, the issue was traditionally with psf as I understood it (thus The Cinetronic 2), but the Decimator always handled either.

    Sony F65 - What Concerns Us

    What Down Converter? I had a decimator before I went all HD and it worked with everything I ever threw at it. Pretty sure that included the F-65, but not 100%. I do know it included its cousin, the Genesis though.
  23. For Sale: Heavily modified Pro Lite HD base, PRO HD Upper J-Box, and PRO HD Center Post cable, $3900: Pro Lite HD Base: For those not familiar with the Pro Lite, it was a lighter version (lower J-box built into it) of the PRO and was the first to use the very rigid tubular design with Anton Bauer mounts. This was Bob Uland’s Pro Lite that I bought off his estate. David Hable then modified it for HD. The BNC at the bottom is the HD line. For SD, you use the 8-Pin Lemo (monitor) line or the 4-Pin Power/Video Lemo (or use the HD BNC line, but then the Lemos won’t have video on them - The Upper J-box has separate HD and SD BNCs). An additional front tube that slides was added as well as a third battery option attached via a 1.5” post clamp. It is wired by a simple P-Tap to P-Tap cable (included). There is also a metal “foot” that can be attached via four small screws (they may need to be re-tapped as there seems to a little bit of play but if you chose to leave this attached, a little lock-tite may do the trick). PRO HD Upper Junction Box: This was an SD junction box updated to HD by David Hable. Same connectors as the later GPI PRO Cine HD upper J-Box (The “Focus” port for the MDR is now a Lemo 1S-303 - same as camera power). Please note that the two small pins that act as safeties inside the post are missing. I bought it this way and it has zero effect on performance. You could always push your own pins in: PRO HD Center Post Cable: Same wiring as the one PRO sells currently, but this one was made by XCS. New XCS sells them for about $1K. This was inside an XCS post that telescoped from 18" to 31”. May fit something a little shorter, but I honestly don’t know. If you’re building a sled, I also have a PRO DB3 for sale as well as a collection of monitor brackets! Pics will be posted separately. Thank you.
