    24V on Steadicam Zephyr

    Hey Connor - here's the Tiffen link and B&H. You might be able to track one down elsewhere... Good luck! http://www.tiffen.com/displayproduct.html?tablename=steadicam&itemnum=807-7350-02 https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/875137-REG/steadicam_807_7350_02_small_dovetail_ab_battery.html

    Zephyr Vest with bigger arm and sled

    Ya know, for not a lot of money, you can add cross back straps to a Zephyr vest. I did it to mine, and it helps a lot with its side to side stability. Probably would help even more with bigger payloads...

    Janet Arthur will sell you just the plates, in varying weights. You can look her up here on the forum...

    Vest recommendations

    The Exo can go very narrow, and I know of one op that just had them make one with custom velcro waist straps to go even smaller...

    Recording issue with Nikon practice camera

    Do you have an AC adapter for the black magic unit? Maybe you could rule out sled power that way. I seem to remember some of their units were a bit fussy about getting regulated 12V? Good luck!

    Flight case is a Pelican Storm iM2975
  10. Hi folks, I'm selling my Exovest that I've had for a year or two. It's been lightly used with my Zephyr, so it's still in perfect shape. I'm the second owner. The original owner provided an entire box of backup parts, and several sets of pads. I picked up a full set of pads top and bottom, so these are practically new. In total there are 4 full sets of shoulder pads, and two sets of hip pads. There's also the original soft bag, however it's ripped on one end. Everything will ship in the Pelican flight case. Included: - Box of bagged spare parts - Manual - 4 total sets of shoulder pads, one set new - 2 sets of hip pads, one new - Soft bag - Pelican flight case Asking $4800 obo. I'll cover shipping US domestic shipping, international buyer can cover it. Item is located in upstate NY. Thanks very much! Contact me through the forum, or @ cvancampen <at> rochester.rr.com

    Replacement parts for steadicam Zephyr

    If you're talking about the pin holding the arm to the male socket, you can get a better than original one from McMaster Carr for not a lot of $$. If memory serves, i's 1/4" OD x 4" long? I can measure later if you need a check on that. Get one with a push button and multiple balls. The stock was only one ball.

    Private Instruction for Steadicam Merlin Setup?

    Hi Tony - did you consult the manual? http://www.tiffen.com/images/content/Merlin%20Manual%20Nov8_Lo.pdf What camera are you trying to mount on it, and is it within the Merlin's range? Smaller rigs can be finicky, especially if something (anything) on the top stage isn't buttoned down. If you've got a loose camera strap or cables, you're not going to have much luck...
  14. Howdy, Zach - any interest in selling just your 2nd battery plate? thanks, Chris

    Exovest VS. Ultra Vest

    Unless they changed something, the two screws on the socket block assembly come all the way out, then you can flop it over to the standard operating side. That's how mine works, but it's an earlier model... Ha! I just noticed in the picture they mirrored it to look goofy. Weird...
