    Check-in luggage to fit Klassen

    For years I just checked in my Klassen Deluxe vest with extra clothes in it in the bag it comes in, no damage ever. I did remove the arm, and cradled it inside the vest and then packed clothes on in there. ended up weighing like 28lbs.. Just my experience... Ozzie

    Starlight HD bracket to sled?

    I've been using Matthias bracket for my Starlite HD on live shows for several months. Works great. On non live shows I put the bracket on the top rods and have a great low mode monitor in the right spot.

    Battery recelling

    Hi Alfeo, what are they charging for an HC90 at Batteries Plus? I've used Ritter for many years ( They're also 20 minutes form my house). Their customer service is excellent and super quick turnaround. I believe the HC90's are $179. My HC's are going on 4 years of use and only now are showing signs of needing a rebuild. Ozzie

    Favourite Recorder?

    I too use the Samurai Blade. It's been my on board recorder for the last 5 years. Almost everything on my reel is from there.

    Betz Top Stage or Pro DB-3?

    Axel... the DB3 that you got. Was it from GPI? Or the modified, tooless one from Optical? Ozzie
  11. Hi folks has Atomos closed down? Been trying to get my samurai blade 5.2 serviced and I've emailed 3 different people and not one has replied to any of my requests for service information. Been trying for about 2 months now but work has kept me pretty busy so I haven't pressed on but maybe there's a representative on this forum that wants to answer my question about where to send it for repair. I know you can't normally just send something in without an RA number. Just not sure if the company went bankrupt or out of business? They seem to still be selling items. Does anyone know a direct phone number where I can call someone for some help on getting my samurai serviced.

    Anyone else get the cold shoulder from Atomos?

    Got a hold of them. Thank you Jason for the support ticket suggestion. They were quite nice once I finally got a hold of someone. Shipped my unit to them, and after 2 weeks they deemed it un repairable because of the modification I had Media Blackout make to it years ago. Mine was the first to get the 2 pin connector added to the side so I would just plug it in to the lower electronics of the Cine Live. But they gave me a great Out of warranty replacement cost for a new unit. and of course I will "upgrade" the new unit again with the same modification since it's the only way I want to use it. Really love the unit and the form factor and size of the Samurai Blade. Just figured I'd update the post.

    Looking to see if anyone has the Arri 416 Steadicam Bracket. It's a small squarish plate with a captive 3/8-16 screw and a couple of locating pins and a bunch of 3/8-16 threaded holes under it. Ozzie

    First Steadicam workshop 1980

    Was this the 1st Steadicam Workshop? I thought it was at Image Devices in Miami. A rental house owned by David Haylock. (The place is still there and still open under the Budget Video Rentals now, same owner). Dan Kneece I believe was in attendance.

    Anyone else get the cold shoulder from Atomos?

    Pamela Berry was my 1st contact, got an automatic email telling me she was no longer with the company to send my inquiry to Rodger or Travis and I send an email to both of them still nothing.

    Wtb Tango

    Hi there so what is a Tango unit going for nowadays? And how heavy of a camera or sensor pickup Mount can you put on the front of that thing? I have a job coming up that I think the reach and mobility of a Tango would be great for this particular shot. Can you put something like a Red helium with a prime lens on it? Ozzie

    What Gimbal Mounted Zoom Control are you using?

    Hi folks, I've used both the Stanton Zoom Focus control and the ZOE BEBOB gimbal mounted zoom control. I mainly use the ZOE Bebob 12 or 8 pin units when doing live because I usually have a focus puller. I've tried the G Zoom and the size of it is just too big for me, Are you folks out here using something different that's reliable? The ZOE units have served me very well for 7 years. Ozzie

    Betz Top Stage or Pro DB-3?

    How is this thread holding up? Any other Converters to the Betz? I have had a DB3 for years, and before that the DB2 for years and before that the DB1.2?, 3A, 3, Model 1, etc... I have the Betz Wave, and the Betz Handheld shoulder rig. and I'd love to have all the mounts be the same. What is everyone thinking at this point 7-8 years later after the Betz top stage came out? I have at one story of vibration from the Betz top stage, causing the op to switch sleds all together. trying to gauge the current thoughts out there before plating some $$$ to TEST something out. If I went with the Betz, I'd always have a set of short rods on there to have the Hill MDR bracket on there. Ozzie
