  1. Hey Ferdinand, at the moment I'm trying not to part out the kit at all. If that changes I'll circle back to you.
  2. Full package description and price breakdown below: I am not parting this out, I am selling it as a complete kit. I'm pricing this rig the way I am in hopes of finding a fledgling Steadicam op who will give it a good home. This has been my workhorse rig for the last 7 years. I have completely overhauled the entire rig since I purchased it. The base Steadicam is a 1989 Tiffen IIIA that has been fully overhauled and updated to modern set standards. Every nut, bolt, cable and bearing has been replaced and/or refurbished by top industry technicians. Loads of spares included. Rob Luna completely overhauled the arm and gimbal in 2016. The arm is rated for 32lb-56lbs. All the hardware and cables are new, the springs are still in great condition. Before I owned this rig it lived in a news studio. It moves like butter. The gimbal is in perfect condition. David Hable/Cramped Attic overhauled the sled wiring and built the top-stage donkey box and the battery hanger and breakout box. It is 12V or 24V (1,2 or 3 battery) ready at the flip of a switch. The sled is set up for AB batts (included). 3G-SDI throughout. The batteries did 14 days on one set and haven't been used since. They're in like-new condition. The original monitor bracket has been replaced with a modern telescopic flippable yoke with a 7" Atomos Shogun Flame that records for quick playback and review. Great for keeping takes for your reel. It has a 1500 nit screen with an anti-reflection cover that holds up in direct sun for the most part. I rarely need a courtesy flag chasing me around to shade the screen. Comes with an identical spare monitor for when your trainee whacks the screen with a door handle....twice. I restored the vest and had new padding made for it. It's comfortable and very adjustable. I'm a small operator (5'9' 150lbs soaking wet) and it fits me snugly and adjusts to fit larger (225lb+) operators easily. It also has a one-of-a-kind magnetic arm-dock so you can use both hands between takes. The cart was custom designed and built for this package, it has a locking padded transport/storage coffin, full rain cover (mint zippers), and an extending rain cover for the Steadicam when it's in the transport yoke at the end of the cart. The entire cart can also break down and clamshells together like a road case for shipping worldwide. It comfortably fits in the back of a small SUV when collapsed. Also included: Garfield mount. Spare top-stage and dovetail Cheese plates Alexa anti-vibration dovetail Custom Steadicam-Arm Frog-Clamp handheld rig Power cables for Red, Arri, Sony, Panavision, Panasonic. Hardness BNC's Steadicam Sled Case, battery case, dino case with drawers for the cart. Vest Bag (like new, cosmetic blemishes) Arm bag (like new) Rain Covers (new) 2x Like new 4 bank battery chargers 8x Like new 135WH Rolux batteries (AB Mount) Cons: - Cart needs two new wheels (available at princess auto) - Missing the rain cover extension "vestibule" vinyl. Would cost $200-$300 new from Best Film. If I find that piece of vinyl it will be included at no extra cost. ASKING: $24, 345 CANADIAN. LINK TO CURRENT EXCHANGE RATE Vancouver area pick up or delivery for no extra cost. If shipping elsewhere, buyer pays all shipping and duty costs.
  3. Are you willing to part it out? I'm looking to buy a spider plate and Mitchel mount.
  4. I posted these matte boxes on Facebook and a lot of people suggested I post them here on the forum so here we go. I've been designing and 3D printed custom parts for DP's and fellow operators for about 2 years now and this is the latest stuff I've come up with. I'm a steadicam operator myself which is where this all started, my current DP wanted more than 2 stages of 6x6 filters so I made a custom matte box to fly on my rig and it's spiralled from there. These are a lightweight 3D printed 6x6 and 4x5.6 clip-on matte boxes with however many stages you want (3 stages shown in the photos). They comes with whatever back plate diameter you want from anywhere around 80mm all the way to 162mm for your 12x1 zoom. The base 4x5.6 matte box starts at $400 USD, and the 6x6 matte box starts at $500 USD. Shipping and tax(within Canada) are additional. - Step-down rings are available as well for $25 each. Buy 4 get the 5th free. - Each additional stage (over 3) is an additional $30/stage. - Hard-mattes sets are $100. Only available for the 4x5.6 version currently (LMB-5 hard-mattes fit the 4x5.6 version perfectly if you already have a set laying around) - An eyebrow is available for the 4x5.6 matte box for $50. (none for the 6x6 yet, it does accept the top flag from the mb-14 however) Filter trays are not included, the main body of the matte box is safe being made from plastic, but it's safer to use standard metal trays from your existing studio matte box to hold the glass. The goal of this system is to supplement your studio build and be cross compatible so you can have a lightweight matte box for minimal expense. The 4x5.6 takes almost any standard 4x5.6 tray and the 6x6 takes most standard 6x6 trays. FAQ: Q: What back plate sizes are available? A: Essentially anything you want, I've done 162mm for Angenieux 24-290s before no problem, I can go all the way down to 50mm or something you if you really want it for a still lens. Q: What step-down ring sizes are available. A: Any size to any size. Q: How much does it weigh? A: With a top flag, dry weight of the 3 stage 4x5.6 is 480g. The 6x6 3 stage dry weight is 700g. Q: What is it printed out of? A: PLA then painted in matte black finish. I print in PLA to get the best print quality and it has decent strength qualities. I've tested ABS, PETG, Nylon and PC and had issues with dimensional accuracy and warping with everything aside from PLA. Q: Isn't PLA susceptible to warping in hot environments? A: Extremely hot ones yes. These would fail the hot car test in most cities mid-summer. But having sold about 4 dozen items made from PLA that are used on set frequently and no one has had any issues with PLA based accessories in over a year. As long as you don't leave it somewhere to get up to 140+ degrees it should be just fine. You can contact me directly at dmtwood@gmail.com if you're interested and have any questions.

  6. Follow up questions Josh, what yoke are you using? It looks pretty versatile.
  7. Josh what brand/model cage is that for the Shogun, I'm trying to do the exact same thing? Also if you know, what the total width of the cage? Trying to see if I can fit it inside a transvideo bracket... Thanks
  8. Hi Louis, The run/stop cable was a prototype made by PLC electronics in Vancouver. We've been working with them beta testing some new products on set. The run/stop cable for RED ONE and EPIC should be available on their website for order soon. http://plcelectronicsolutions.com/ Cheers,
  9. OK David
