    Buying old vs new - cheap rigs- Steadicam Master Series

    The advice and help experience operators have given me.in.here and in the facebook groups is invaluable. I can say with confidence that a MS rig With the HDSDI upgrade, the 12v/24v wiring/switch/fuse, new monitor mount and a gyro can handle just about anything. Consider Mauricio at Calicocam if you want to.get rid of the k-section. Currently saving.up to.get one.of my.MS to Mauricio.

    HD line for Master series sled

    I just had my MS HDSDI lines and connectors upgraded. Not hard at all, specially if you got the top stage off, the rest is simple. A few guys in the USA cam so it. I recommend @steadikoon on Instagram

    Suggestions for combating extreme sweat?

    what works for me. I wear layers. I wear long sleeve light cotton shirt and a dickies or Columbia shirt sleeve fishing shirt over that. I try not to let the first sweat of the day evaporate of my skin. I don't expose any parts of my arms or torso to the sun. that keeps my sweat undercontrol until lunch break, then I change. from the waist down, thats another thing. Give Tommy Jones underwear a try. go full synthetic. money well spent there. and I use Columbia shorts. ventilation is key for the undercarriage. happy flying

    What to do with personal belongings on set OPing? (Keys, phone, wallet)

    I lock everything in my cases except my phone. All cases are on a magliner sr. I use my phone with the level app on the monitor mount. I also have Bluetooth dongles on the cases. If they get moved my phone app alerts me.

    Buying old vs new - cheap rigs- Steadicam Master Series

    With the help of several generous veterans I have a master series sled and master arm that fly's great. It is humbling the amount of support I found in here and in the facebook groups. Don't discard the classics. The HDSDI upgrade is intimidating to do, but not impossible. Most Broken parts can be machine locally. And companies like calicocam can completely MOD the k-section and electronics.

    Provid Sled Mod?

    do check Maurizio Aloi Calicocam
  8. i use a lanparte battery/HDMI splitter. it gives me 2 cdmi outs i take one to feed a parallinx transmitter, the other goes to hdmi to composite and I send that signal down my master to monitor. there is a small delay when doing that.

    Barking Dogsā€¦

    my 2c. im a big guy 6'02" 250+ and can't imagine using anything else but "old" basketball shoes, I remove the factory insert and replace with gels. i even found an classic pair of nikes without shoe laces, just velcro straps. i may look ridiculously hipster, but my feet never hurt.

    Vest repair

    Hi Janice, Quick question. How do you remove the rivets on the lower buckle of the vest? I know I can get a rivet gun at home depot but is there a tool to safely remove rivets?

    which steadicam shall I buys

    best thing any new op can do is to read the handbook, watch Mr Jerry Halloway training videos. you can search on youtube. there is also a very good video on Dynamic balance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9W8bOZLM9g. and when ready Attend a workshop. however, if you want to sell your M50 sled PM right away.

    CAME TV vs Steadicam Pilot

    that Came TV rig is not worth the money. not the vest, not the sled, not the arm. I had one, and had to glue, dodder,gaffer tape al over so the sled wouldn't move when operating. and don't even try to go low mode on those. only, "off brand" rig i have found adequate is the LAING M50,there are 2 models one of which has wiring for red power and is both 12V/24V . but only the sled feels good. it is a world of a difference to have a sled with 2" diameter. fly safe
