  1. Looking for primarily the 1" extension, but will take the 2 and 3" ones as well, if you have them. Located in L.A.
  2. Hey All. I am not on the FB, so posting here. Looking for a T-Handle holder for the full-length Volt padded dock. Would not be upset if it holds more than just the T-Handles. Cheers.
  3. Tyler, Feel free to answer by DM: Do you do bulk discount? I have roughly 12 Dionic HC's that need recelled.
  4. Hey Jerry. Just sent you an email for a few bits & bobs I'd like to pickup. Cheers.
  5. I love the short gimbal from the older PRO days. I'm tempted to make one/buy one (does one exist?) for my Volt. The input to the rig and the feedback from the rig just seems "more correct" with a short handle.
  6. Hey All. Hoping somebody can shed some light and possibly offer a fix to the following: I'll set the rig up, balance, yada yada yada. Walk to one. Operate the first take. Operate the second take. Then as I'm walking back to one I'll notice that the Volt has decided that the level is now a bit to the left or right of the center which was previously set. Sometimes more than a bit to the left or right. Sometimes it's way off. Annoying AF. Constantly asking for 5 seconds when I'm settling into my 1. The AD's and I now have an unspoken language where I pretend I'm Sterling Archer and just hold up an index finger to denote the Volt is currently being told where center is. It happens regardless of whether I have thrown the rig on my shoulder or not. I rarely hand my rig off to the grips, so that's a non-factor. All bolts/screws/do-hickeys are tight. And I have upgraded to the latest firmware. Cheers.
  7. Always great to see work from Guvvie. Where do you see the potential break? Cheers!
  8. Hey all. Looking for something that I can use for my reel and for recording zoom meetings. Needs to record in h264 & mov. **I will NOT be carrying this around on my rig** Hyperdeck, etc.. Cheers. Located in L.A. 510-708-8576
  9. Stirling, what's up man?! I am working on this right now. looks like I can buy the fork separately and then mate it up to the magdock bit from a Hill MagDock. I'll let you know what I come up with.
  10. Hey Tom, hope all's well out there in VortexVille! I was initially toying with the idea of punching another hole in the low mode posts but thought that might somehow compromise the integrity. I'll give one armpost a go with your technique and report back. Cheers.
  11. Has anybody found a workaround for the incompatibility of the Volt's gimbal handle and low mode for GPI PRO users? The cross drilling on the Tiffen handle is perpendicular to the way PRO armposts (and, consequently, the low-mode handles and offset handles) are drilled. The Tiffen handle has some pretty thick walls -- if a workaround isn't available I think it's time to jam out to Sal & The CNC Machines.
  12. Hey all. Seeing if anybody makes a Preston MDR Mount in the style of the Cinema Hardware item, but one that can convert between the MDR2 thickness (chunky-monkey) and the MDR3 (been on the diet coke and flu diet) thickness. I am assuming that would be accomplished by switching out the side panels for lack of a better way of wording it. Pass-through power a must. Cheers.
  13. Hey all. Apologies on the delayed response -- I've been working and my schedule's been going from days to nights and then back again. The machinist had a bit of a health hiccup and was ordered by the docs to rest and take it easy. As a result there is a delay in getting the brackets out. I'm done with my current shoot on Thursday and will pop into the shop on Friday to hopefully QC the first batch and give the thumbs-up. Will keep you updated here. Cheers.

Prefer local deal. Paypal add 3%. I'll be at The Camera Division tomorrow morning; if you're in the area and want to check it out swing by. Cheers.
  15. I've used this without any issues whatsoever for the past 6 or so years. As the pictures show, Ross Judd was the prior owner. This piece of kit has been around and it is absolutely rock-solid. Mount it to speed rail, a Mitchell Mount, or some other manner the grips come up with :) This Mitchell mount has an array of tapped holes where you can put a key-way. $500 I'm on the westside of L.A.. Prefer local deal. Paypal add 3%. I'll be at The Camera Division tomorrow morning; if you're in the area and want to check it out swing by. Cheers.
  16. Please continue to send in requests/orders as it seems that quite a few folks want this item. I will keep a detailed list that is first-come-first-served. Cheers.
  17. Order fulfilled, and then some. We are going to machine most likely Tuesday/Wednesday of next week. Have a great weekend and put your feet up on Labor Day. Cheers.
  18. Only need 2 units to be spoken for for the first run. To reiterate: only $150. Cheers!
  19. Having my machinist make me a few 15-degree-offset lowmode handles/brackets. I believe he will be making them in batches of twelve. I need 9 more units to be spoken for to get the ball rolling. These are, indeed, the indentical handles that Tom Gleason of Cinewidgets made. He no longer makes them and has sent me the files so I can make this amazing piece of kit available for other Steadicam Operators to benefit from. Handle/Braket only. Will not come with an armpost. Price hasn't been set in-stone yet, but back in 2011 the price was $150 with tax. We'll try and keep it in that ballpark. Cheers. EDIT: I originally posted the price as $244.xx which was a mistake. Tom Gleason got a hold of me and relayed the correct price. Apologies.
  20. Marianne, I shall give this a shot later today or tomorrow. On a side note: Is there a way to set the user-defineable-button to be a "standby" shortcut? Like the standby buttons we had on our CRTs a long time ago? Quite literally to turn the screen off but keep the settings as they are? If it is doable, would you please walk me through the steps to set this up; if it is not currently possible, could that functionality be added in a future firmware update? Thank you :)
  21. My $0.02: Whichever way you operate -- goofy or regular -- you ultimately want to land/settle with most of your weight on your back foot. Since I am goofy, I try to keep almost all static weight on my back/right foot. This is analogous to keeping the majority of weight on the back foot in martial arts. The reason being that the front/lead foot can very quickly be repositioned for a move (in the case of martial arts -- a strike or defensive move). Add to this the fact that you ALWAYS want to start and end a move by pushing/pulling on the gimbal. As Mike stated above, this pre/post gimbal action can be mere milliseconds in duration. Or longer. Sometimes much longer. That's where you as an individual, and the actual shot you are shooting, will deviate from the median of whatever this hypothetical bell-curve of gimbal vs. operator movement is. Hope this helps.
