    Steadiproline raven any reviews?

    Hi although I have not personally used a raven for actually work, I have put one on and set it up to test out a system before shipping it out to Colombia for a fellow operator who bought one of those Pro-Line Raven systems here in the states. The system is pretty much barebones I have heard that the newer arm that is offered now is a lot smoother and better than the older version that came with the system that I was prepping to ship down south. The vest does not come with the little side straps that connect the midsection with the lower lumbar support and I feel that that is an absolute necessity in any vest. I'm sure you can go to a good Shoemaker or leatherworker and have them add those straps with some quick disconnect buckles and you'd instantly upgrade the feel of the vest. For the money you can't beat it I've heard prices of $4,000 and even sometimes less for the entire kit it's an amazing deal and then the first upgrade that I would suggest would be to get an older Master Series arm or a steady rig arm. There's even a G50 xarm being sold for $4,000 on the Forum that is just an amazing deal. Good luck. Ozzie

    Steadicam Operator Expo- List of exhibitors.

    Looking forward to it. Haven't been there in a bit. Planning on attending!!
  7. Hiya.. Looking for an XCS super post with the GPI/Pro inserts at the ends. Now.... there are the older inserts which have a very small amount of threads and the newer inserts which have the larger number of threads which will match the thicker knurled ring on the Cine Live sleds. Would like it to have a perfect working order HD cable like used on the current Cine Live sleds. If the Price is Right I can pick it up at cinegear or stabilizer Expo. Ozzie

    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.

  18. 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.
