  3. Would anyone happen to know of someone renting a Segway in Atlanta? Thanks. Dave
  4. Dear, David I am interesting with Flyer LE And any discount? Are everything working good? Do you ship to Thailand? How i can pay? Can I pay by Paypal? could you check the price for shipping? Please contract keangkrivanich@gmail.com Thank you Bee

  5. In case anyone is still reading this thread, I just ordered the pin directly from Jergens for about $35. This was the four-pin, heavy duty steel version, part number 806427-4B, just as Chris Van Campen had said. McMaster-Carr wanted $75 for the same pin, so Jergens is probably the way to go.
  6. This rig was made by the Steadicam factory, using off the shelf parts mostly from the Flyer LE and some from the Flyer. The stage and gimbal are Flyer LE parts. Standard Def version. Comes with soft case and Steadistand. IDX mount. $5,000 USD. Batteries and charger are not included. Thanks for looking.
  7. Hi Dave. Also, check out the TVlogic monitor http://goo.gl/3Zqqq It's not much brighter, but If I remember correctly it's as bright as the Flyer monitor. With a hood it could work. It has HDMI, and HDMI to SDI conversion. less than 1/5 lbs. -- use it on the rig, or take it off for other jobs. As for adding weight to adjust inertia. that's smart. I went to a tire repair shop and got several lbs of lead from them. (it was used, and free) hammered them straight and wrapped them in black tape. Put velcro on them and I could add them to any surface. It's not ideal, but if you have a static monitor and battery it helps. (EFPs were like that) And it looks better than a silver clamp. =) Hope that helps some. Thanks Bryan, Good to hear from you. Really enjoyed NAB. We had a shoot right near your house the next week with Scott.
  8. I guess I had two reasons for wanting a different monitor. The first is by far the most important. I usually fly the 5D Mkii, and because the codec has so little latitude in post, my exposure and color temp have to be captured just about perfectly in camera. The stock monitor does not allow me see an accurate rendition of either, so I always have to unplug the Steadicam monitor cable and check the in-camera monitor whenever I change exposure or color temp (i.e. every shot). This slows me down and is just unpleasant. Much less importantly, I also wanted a heavier monitor, because right now I am adding superclamps to my monitor arm in order to get weight up front so I can set the batteries more towards horizontal to add pan inertia. And since I also want a field monitor for tripod use, I thought the 9" would be a good dual use monitor. But I can definitely see Janice's point about size and weight being problematic. Anyway, those were my thoughts, and any comments on those would be very welcome. Thanks again. Dave
  9. Janice, Thanks very much. Those are very helpful comments. I appreciate the feedback.
  10. Mark, I'm sure you don't remember, but I was at Showcase the day you picked up your Zephyr, asking a bunch of questions about it. Since that, I have bought my Flyer LE, and joined the forum. I really appreciate the fact that you so freely give advice to so many people in the community, and thanks for your answers to this post. Dave
  11. Hey everyone, I am looking at a Flanders Scientific 9" monitor for my Flyer LE. I have two questions. First, the max brightness on this monitor is 300 nits. Is that generally sufficient for Steadicam work or should I look elsewhere for a higher brightness monitor? Secondly, does anyone know where I can get a breakout cable that would attach from my Flyer's 9-pin connector to the new monitor's XLR (power) and BNC (SDI) connectors? Thanks! Dave
