    Political Season starting

    Hi Janice When I am working on commercials ,corprate ,music videos ,etc where I have not worked with the production company before I specify that on the first job I get paid on the day (just like trade people plumbers etc). For me that seems to work in most cases . Good luck Louis Puli .

    Vest Crack

    Hi Isaac No you should not be an issue for you right now but I would get onto it asap as you would not like it to get any worse .Which vest are you using ?It would be good to have a photo of the vest .I have had an issue with a flyer vest which I repaired .I used 4' long and 3' wide piece of 1 mm Aluminium plate and I placed the plate on the inside of the vest and bolted that to the vest and it solved the problem . Good luck with it . Louis Puli .

    Additional weight

    Firstly have you tried to balance your camera on the rig? I would power everything from the rig .Do you have 2 battery plate on your rig ? As you have pointed out Yes the socket block on the Zephyr is smaller on the vest and also the Arm post is larger on the G50 so you will need 2 things for this to work . I have seen an adaptor for the Zephyr vest to upgrade it to a larger arm block.You will need a machinest make you a arm post cut down to size.I would contact Tiffen first as they may have both items or would know were to get them All the best Louis Puli .

  6. Hi I would try and get a 3rd party involved .1 a rental house 2.local op or get them to send the arm to Pro and then you will know if this arm is real and the 3rd party would hold onto the arm until payment is made. Buying anything of this great cost can be tricky if not sold from a registered dealer.

    I hope this is of some help

    24V on Steadicam Zephyr

    Hi Connor No you don't need an extra battery plate as I have alway fly with the SR3 24v battery on board . Yes you could use a extra battery plate (if you can find one )and 24v cables for your Zephyr and keep your sled quite short .I would ask around with your local ops and see if they have one which you can hire or borrow. The Zephyr should be able to fly the SR3 weight with the battery . Good luck Louis

    unknown arm/broken spring

    Hi Cade I would think it would be cheaper to buy a new arm(If it is a Chinese ripoff ) then get a new spring made . I would contact (if you haven't already) the manufacture of the arm and see if they can sell you one . Louis

    Hi Kareem Lets get this right you want a rig that will carry everything .The best brand new rigs are the Tiffen M1 and the GPI Cine Live . As for 2nd hand rigs you could look at an Archer 1,2,Ultra 1 -2 or Pro 1,2, .You could also look at an upgraded EFP . I would contact a local operator (NYC ) which there are many and compare their rigs and advice on all the accessories that you are needing to fly ok . Good luck Louis Puli .
