    The Rolls Royce of Steadicams.

    I can only speak from my personal experience and the rigs that I have owned. I had a Swiss Made Actioncam, a Tiffen Ultra2c and an Arri Artemis / Trinity prior to my current Pro rig and the Pro is by far the best I have ever owned. I really enjoy the simplicity of the design and the 'feel' of the precision engineering. Of the above Pro has also shown to have by far the best support.

    Best Hi-Brite monitor for Archer 2

    I have a totally overpriced transvideo with all the bells and whistles. And I have a SmallHD 703 - which I actually prefer.

    Steadicam M1 Volt

    well - I did not exactly 'make' it. I merely drilled a bunch of holes into my Moses pole and bolted a cannibalized piece of the Volt Dock onto it.

    Betz Top Stage or Pro DB-3?

    Just got my DB3s. Can only say they are both fantastic top stages. The DB3s feels like it is built like a tank. I do like the easy 'secure lock' locking mechanism. This top stage is slightly longer and presumable a little bit better with potential dovetail flex. I do like the way the 15mm LW rods attach. They are only screwed in on the Betz, which means if you put a motor on on of them without an additional bridge bracket the rods will most probably get torqued off by the motors and become loose. The Betz stage has a little bubble level in the back that I dearly miss on the DB3s.

    Betz Top Stage or Pro DB-3?

    I literally just got a Betz top stage. Machining seems extremely nice. I wish there was a 'hard stop' for the clamping mechanism and a safety release that kicks in when the dovetail plate is not already sliding. Make sure you have those little safety screws on your plate. I have seen a fully rigged alexa just slide out of a betz stage and crash on the sidewalk when a grip who was carrying it accidentally got caught on the release lever. wasn't pretty. currently contemplating a DBIIIs for my second sled / superpost. But they seem to be 'slightly' delayed ....

    Arri Artemis / Trinity System

    Sorry I won't. I've been asked a couple of questions about that so let me explain this: The only thing you need for a Trinity sled to become a regular Artemis / steadicam sled is an additional battery hanger. The Trinity still requires most parts of a regular Artemis sled - aka the post, top stage (which becomes the bottom stage) etc. best
  11. SALE PENDING For sale is an Arri Artemis / Trinity system. This is a full system to either use it as a regular steadicam sled or a trinity. Please note that for the regular sled you will need to get a monitor bracket and monitor (I am currently using a transvideo monitor and camjam bracket and I am keeping those). You also need a monitor for the Trinity. I am currently using a SmallHD 503 high bright – but you can also use the Transvideo 5” Starlite. The system is about 18 months old and was purchased new from Arri in Blauvelt, New York. It was regularly serviced and is in perfect working condition. Artemis Sled is in very good condition with one very minor scratch on top stage and some inevitable superficial scratches on the gimbal cap where you dock. Trinity head has seen little use and is in mint condition. The battery plates have been customized with cheese plates to accommodate accessories such as wireless video etc. Included are: - Artemis Cine Broadcast 1.8'' sled / AB batteries - 3rd AB Plate (under post) - artemis Camera Plate 8'' - artemis Post Tool 1.8'' / 1.5'' - post extension - rain cover for bottom hanger - 2 x docking / balancing bracket - Trinity head - Trinity joystick & cable - Power cables for bottom stage Trinity - Power cables for regular monitor (lemo 2pin) and Transvideo Starlite 5” - Focus power out > D-tap power splitter x 2 - Alexa Mini Power cable - Fisher Arri 24V Power cable - Amira control cable - extra mounting / accessory plate for Trinity / Artemis rods (pictured gyro is not included) - Tenba storage and transport case for Trinity head I wish I would not have to say this but: No barter, no trades, no discounts, no installments, no financing, no tire kicking, no nonsense. For the inevitable “why are you selling question”: As an equipment owner I buy and sell gear all the time. The Trinity is a brilliant and unique piece of equipment. But I have decided to prioritize other aspects of my work. The system is located and can be inspected just North of New York City. Buyer can pickup or pay for shipping of choice. New Value around $ 62k. Price: US $ 49,500k high rez pictures of all parts / details / accessories are here https://www.dropbox.com/sh/uc44w3649inot63/AAAL887oOAfwYhmV83wQ191Ya?dl=0

    SmallHD 703 Ultrabright On-board Monitor

    are you located in the US ?
  13. what a nice kit !!! some basic price guidance would be nifty. I'd be interested in the sled should you decide to break up the kit.

    bouncing provid arm

    Couple of things: There are not many arms where you don't see your steps at all. The bad news is that the Provid ain't one of them. Do the toe test: Let go off the sled - go on your tippy toes. If your sled and camera rises with you - well - you know what's up. However that does not mean you can't train with it - it just won't be perfect. Very few people (without a trust fund) buy a $15-20k Tiffen or Pro arm as their first rig. Generally arms work best when they are almost maxed out on their capacity. If your camera is very light for your arm and the springs are quite 'stiff' just add a weight plate. Technically heavy objects have more inertia and should therefore have less 'wiggle and bounce' to them. Hope this helps and happy flying :-)
