  1. I'm in the market for a used XCS superpost. If anyone is interested in selling theirs, please contact me at billygreeniv@gmail.com Thanks!
  2. Hi Everyone, I'm looking for a used Preston DM-1X or DM-1 motor. I already own the pam motor mount, aks, etc., so I wouldn't need anything else. Based out of NY -- please contact me at: billygreeniv@gmail.com Thanks! Billy
  3. I have one you can borrow, but it looks like I just missed you. If not, feel free to message me and I'm happy to help. -Billy
  4. I'm interested in one of the monitor brackets. Still available?
  5. I'm in the market for a new donkey box/camera stage/top stage/upper camera platform, etc. I've narrowed it down to either: Betz Top Stage My link http://www.betz-tools.com/acc_stage.php OR Pro Donkey Box III My link http://progpi.com/product/components/1/ I've read around on the forum, but there's no recent mention of either. Any advantages of one over the other or any potential vibration issues? I'm aware of Tiffen's motorized stage and XCS's upper camera platform, but I'm not in a position to buy an entirely new rig. Thanks in advance! Best, Billy Green
  6. Hi Aaron, Thanks, but I operate right-handed. ________________________________________ Dave, Thanks for the sale! Good seeing you at CSC last night! Best, Billy

  8. Hey Douglas, I didn't see the package you bought, but I'll tell you this: I bought a modified Steadicam 3 package in '08 and it wasn't even a 3A. My package had a Pro 1 Donkey Box, Steadicam 3 Sled (didn't telescope), Transvideo Rainbow 1 monitor, Seitz wireless system, coherent video transmitter, 3a arm, 3a or 3? vest and a bunch of accessories for $8,000. The monitor was held by an Israeli Arm attached to a Home Depot piece that loosened up every time I tightened up the arm and there were a variety of things I had to monitor when I operated. My shots with this setup were level and smooth, but required a lot more work to do so. As a result, I had to work really hard and had to have a lot of control over the gimbal. The way I look at it now, as I did then, is you're better off when everything is manual. That way, you have to be in control of everything (much like photography with a manual camera), but when you have all the bells and whistles, you'll be that much better. As long as you can fly the heavy cameras, you're all good. Good purchase and if you have any questions, please contact me.
