  3. I am selling a Backstage Collapsible Steadicam Cart TR-05 with a few accessories. Its nearly new. Purchased about a year ago... it's pretty much lived in a storage locker in LA. Used probably 3 or 4 times.

  4. This is a mounting bracket for a Preston MDR1 or MDR2. This will enable you to mount your MDR to the nose box of a Tiffen Ultra model sled. I'm selling because I sold my ultra sled a year ago, and have since been using it with my ultra2 sled. It doesn't quite fit exactly, so I plan on replacing it with A new bracket that Tiffen will be coming out with shortly. Bracket is definitely used, but in perfect working condition. Tiffin's new bracket will cost $200, I'm asking $100 for this bracket. Email me at ben@bensemanoff.com for pix
  5. I'm selling one of those Gorelock knock-off docks, plus its complementary magliner dock. For those of you that are not familiar with the history, somebody knocked off the Bob Gorelock / Jerry Hill dock a while back and these knock-offs are still floating around. The reason I'm selling is that when I bought this dock (used) last year, it came with docking rings for a 2" post. I bought the complimentary rings for my Ultra2 from Jerry Hill not knowing that his rings aren't compatible with these knock off docks. So for the time being I made delrin bushings to accommodate the size difference. However, I'm tired of the slipping that occurs between the delrin and the carbon fiber post... so I've decided to sell this knock-off and replace it with a fully functional hill dock with the correct size docking rings for my sled. If your sled has a 2" post then this would be a great investment for you...it will save you some $$$ over buying a new unit. As far as the dock goes, it works great! It's used so it shows some wear... but otherwise works great. It comes with (2) docking rings for 2" posts, AND comes with a complete magliner bracket/fork. Please email me at ben@bensemanoff.com for pictures. Again to recap: 1x Gorelock "type" spin-balancing dock (like Jerry Hill's Part# GAD2+DR2) 2x Docking Rings for 2" Post 2x Pro Studs for Spin Balance (0.625) 2x Tiffen Studs for Spin Balance (0.740) 1x Magliner Dock (the fork is a knock-off, but the baby mount bracket is from Jerry Hill... see Jerry Hill's Part# Mag-dock-2) Total value $1685.00 ASKING $1125.00 OBO
  6. Thanks everyone! Your kind words are certainly appreciated. Thought some of you might be interested in a behind the scenes video theberrics.com posted from the shoot. Please note that the video opens with a shot of me stepping onto the golf cart... it was taken during a rehearsal and you'll note that the step-on isn't very smooth... i assure you it went better when cameras were actually rolling!!!
  7. Thanks everyone for your kind words! Charles Papert contacted me and suggested that I write up something discussing the shot, challenges, execution, etc. So instead of wasting screen space here I’ve made an entry in my blog about it. Feel free to check it out if interested. http://bensemanoff.com/blog/2011/09/15/gatorade-go-all-day-steadicam-shot/

  13. New Items: 2-Headed Turnaround Post: This adapter post is compatible with G70, Ultra & Master series arms. One end is reduced for use with 1/2" Tiffen gimbals, and the other side is reduced to 5/8" to accommodate Pro, MKV and other Mfgs using 5/8" gimbals. Note: picture on site shows an un-anodized post, but the item will ship with a black anodized finish. This item is NEW and sells for $195 Gorelock 2" DR2: I have two 2" DR2s for the Gorelock system that are in NEW condition. Selling them on the site for $69.95 each Used Items: Gorelock 2" DR2: I have two 2" DR2s for the Gorelock system that are in USED condition. Selling them for $49.95 each. They aren't currently listed on the site, but will be shortly.
  14. FYI the Mag Dock I mention above has a 1.625" Fork clearance. As I mention on the item description, I don't know what rig it was originally intended for...I'm guessing a 3A based on the age and where I got it. I've uses it with my ultra In the past in conjunction with Gorelock DR1 rings. They obviously don't lock in, but between the post diameter on the ultra and the fact that the Gorelock ring is flat and not tapered like a Tiffen collar... It worked well. Might be good for rigs that hang off the gimbal as well... Offers welcomed!
  15. I just lowered the asking price for the docking brackets & accessories I am selling. Master / Ultra Spin Docking Bracket with 2x Collars $395 Ultra Spin Docking Bracket with 2x Collars $495 Mag Dock $135 2" DR2 Gorelock Docking Rings (4 available) $50/each. I also have 4x used 0.625" spin balance studs for the gorelock dock. I bought two gorelock docks used that had these studs, but since I have Tiffen sleds I had to swap to the 0.740" studs. Might be useful for others doing the same thing, or even if you want to re-purpose them for some other application. Jerry sells them for $50/each, I'm asking $25 each. I also lowered the price on the Tiffen Steadicam Battery Case for $160 Offers Welcomed!

  24. Usually only available in bulk, I'm selling this great product in smaller quantities. It's an adhesive-backed, anti-slip product that works fantastic on your gimbal. Since its rubberized, it doesn't get as cold as metal gets when working in cold conditions. I'm selling it in two sizes: 6" x 3" - good raw size for Ultra/Master gimbals 9" x 3" - good raw size for larger gimbals
  25. Robert, not a dealer... but what are you looking for. I may be able to help.
