  1. Looking to buy the 6” version of my G50x arm post. Tiffen says they’ve stopped making them.
  2. Anybody here have this arm? It checks all the boxes and has a decent price. Michael Tien
  3. I’m considering getting a G50x arm. When the specs say max 50lbs can it handle a 50lbs load solidly or does it starts getting weak around 45lbs?
  4. Have you sold the Wave yet?

  5. The little tightening handle on my armpost lock disintegrated. Where can I get a new one? It's a Steadyrig Silver Spring arm.
  6. How much does the Helix weigh?
  7. Found a welder! Not pretty but works for the meantime. Hopefully I can still get a backup. I'll check out the Klassen.
  8. Jess I'm in Sudbury Ontario presently. We've sent it to a welding shop to see what they can do.
  9. Innocinema informed me that Action Products is no longer in business. They might have one in stock though. Fingers crossed. Do you think epoxy would hold this together until I find a replacement?
  10. I broke the arm receiver on my Actioncam vest yesterday. Looking to get a replacement. Will another manufacturers' part be compatible? Any ideas?
  11. Hi Louis; Thanks for your quick reponse. I look forward to your list. Yes a beer would be great! Cheers Michael Tien
  12. There's a good chance I'll be going to Melbourne Australia next February to shoot some episodes for a TV we just wrapped here in Canada. I'm seeking recommendations for a Camera rental house that carries the RED EPIC and Ziess Ultraprimes. I'm also looking for a Gaffer with a package truck. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Michael Tien
  13. Any tricks for getting the focus strips to line up each time? Michael Tien
  14. Hello all; I've got a Steadyrig arm with a stuck aircraft pin. Does anyone know who might be able to unstick it here in Canada? Or better yet a safe DIY alternative. I've tried the WD-40 technique without success. Michael Tien
  15. Has anyone tried out the Long Valley Equipment's RED camera lightweight rods? http://www.longvalleyequip.com/rodsupport.php Cheers Michael Tien
  16. Looking for an M-One focus motor. My Heden M26P no longer has the torque. Michael Tien gatecheck@yahoo.ca
  17. I myself would lean towards the 16 x 9 monitor. What brand are these screens? Cheers Michael Tien
  18. Do you have a picture of this arm post in action? I am sure it's pretty simple. Cheers Michael Tien
  19. I am looking for a riser handle for my rig. Basically It would be an intermediate piece between the arm and the sled. I would like to get the sled higher without putting more tension on my arm. Does this kind of thing exist? Cheers Michael Tien
  20. :) Check this out as an alternate way to get 24v to your camera. http://www.salvagetech.com/products.asp?cid=42 I ran an SR3 with this Vicor converter for 2 months. If you buy one you will need the connectors. My AC used the plastic box it shipped in as a case. It will power the camera and video assist no problem. I initially ran my BFD off of the 24v to 12v converter on the camera but that puts 3 devices on the Vicor and it didn't like it. I had a y cable made for the 12v out on the sled. One side was for the Bartech and the other for the Vicor. Make sure you pull off the eyepiece heater cable. My rig maxes out at 25lbs so having the on-board battery would put it over the edge. Cheers Michael Tien
  21. I tried both constant and momentary. Michael Tien
  22. I hooked up my BFD to an SR2 today with a stop-start cable and unfortunately nothing happened. Do older SR2's have a problem being started this way. The camera is going to the shop tommorrow any insight would be appreciated. Cheers Michael Tien
  23. Where can one source the bicycle wheels and axle for a homemade rickshaw. Michael Tien
  24. Can one remove the cold cathode filament tube and replace it with a piece of translucent plastic? My thinking is that it is hard to see your average LCD in bright sunlight because the LCD backlight is so dark compared to the sun. A piece of translucent plastic would pick up the ambient light from behind which would be brighter that the existing light source. It would be like the lcd panels that you can put on an overhead projector. Any thoughts.? Michael Tien
  25. Is the BFD still available and if so which model Heden and what bits and pieces are available? Michael Tien
