  1. I also have the Volt setup. When I rotate the gimbal left and right under weight, the sled pans as well even when my hand is not on the gimbal sleeve. I’m shooting in Utah and the temp yesterday morning was 9 degrees on set. Thinking it has something to do with the cold but I have been using a hairdryer to heat it up and seems better but it’s still not “loosey goosey” when I move the the gimbal left or right. The sled essentially pans by itself when I move the gimbal. Any thoughts?
  2. Has anybody ever had vibration issues while in low mode? They are micro vibrations that happen during a low mode shot. They always happen for me. Operating the rig doesn't feel any different for me and I don't feel the vibrations physically, but it is evident in the footage. Could it be a volt/gimbal issue?
  3. Hey Geoffrey, I have this combo and I have never been let down with the Archer2 and G50X. I have flown a lot of Alexa Classics with heavy panavision lenses while having an oboard battery on the cam and my arm still had plenty of room for lift adjustment. Strip what you can off the heavy cams and you'll be fine. Also having power cables to fly different cams is great. I recently flew an XT with some heavy lenses and I had the AC take off the top handle and eyepiece. I have lots of Alexa Mini and Red jobs and I seem to always add more to the cam to make it heavier. The arm performs better with some weight on it. I have never had to say no to a setup yet with this combo. Hope this helps.
  4. Hello, I'm looking to rent a Wave 1 for 1 day in Palma De Mallorca. Seeing if there is an operator or rental house that has one somewhere in Spain.
  5. Does anybody know if the new Rainbow FHD will have a horizon level built in to the software?
  6. Hello everybody, I am wanting to pull the trigger on the SBL RainbowHD after being around it the last few shoots. I am currently using the Marshall monitor that came with the Archer2. I have been searching around the forums and online and can't seem to find the answer to my question. I'd love to use the Archer2 yoke if possible to save some money, and I know Transvideo sells the dogbone attachments, but I'm unclear if they will work on the Rainbow 7", however I know they work with the HD6 and HD8. I was looking at their yokes on their website and it doesn't seem that the yoke tilts. The monitor tilts with the constant torque knobs, but from what I see it doesn't look like the yoke tilts. This would be a deal breaker. And I have looked at the cam jam, but I'm not entirely sure if their yoke works with the Rainbow 7". Any ideas as to what my best option would be utilizing the factory yoke of the Archer2? Any other advice. Thanks guys! Josh
  7. Hi Ryan, I just purchased an Archer2 on March 11th. Dan Ikeda from Tiffen told me that prices were going up in April and to put in my order before then. He didn't specify why, but rather that prices were just increasing.
  8. Just curious what the post diameter is on the Archer2. Can't seem to find any info on that specifically.
  9. What is her direct email? Having trouble finding it on their site.
