  1. Thanks a lot William Demeritt for this detailed input ! It's great help :)


    I am looking for a monitor for a newly built rig for no more than 2500usd, so I've been hesitating

    between a second hand Transvideo/Cinetronic (can't find a Boland at this point:) OR a Shogun Inferno (the latest of the family with 1500nits), which does recorder at the same time, but doesn't have the rugged construction of the previous monitors.

    I was also worried about reflections, but since you say that even without an anti glare protection it has been Ok, that sounds interesting.

    If I get an Inferno I will definitely get a Shape aluminium cage for more weight and protection.


    Thanks again for your input !

  2. Hi guys,


    Has anyone tested-used these stabilizing systems ?





    (Proline has launched a new backmounted vest that reminds a bit the design of the Exovest - though at least from the pics it doesn't seem as solid).


    How is the performance, quality, reliability, dynamic balance etc. of these two systems compared to the big brands (Tiffen, MKv, XCS, Sachtler, GPI Pro etc.) ? Is there a huge difference ?


    thanks in advance for your valuable input, it's very hard to find any review on the net.





  3. Hi guys, it seems smooth :)

    But the "l'Aigle", in France, has rubber band arms since 2003, it's not so new.


    This is their flagship arm: http://shop.laigleparis.fr/index.php?id_product=69&controller=product&id_lang=5


    And now the isoelasticity can be adjusted without tools, so I guess no need to remove or add rubbers (unless perhaps if you go from DSLR to a much heavier camera - like the GPI Pro arm canisters have to be changed).


    Rubbers are pretty smooth and quite. I have an older l'aigle rubber band arm. The only thing to be "careful" about when operating is extreme temperatures. You need to readjust the elasticity. The cost of changing the rubbers is near zero. L'Aigle for example guarantees them for 10 years... so you can change all the rubbers for free before that.


    (P.S. I am not working for l'aigle (!) and their systems do have flaws, but also interesting innovative concepts. Twiga seems to have taken the same approach with their new arm, interesting

    A correction: I think the last video on the "twiga" query is not about the twiga arm. It's a new arm using rubber bands, don't know what's the brand name. So apologies for the confusion.
