    Balance & Rig accuracy

    Hi Sawyer, I'm often flying a Clipper 2 that I rent from another operator and I experience the same thing often working at 4 to 8s drop time Going past 45° on any tilt direction will modify the rig balance and it will still hold a slight tilt. I also checked that everything was tight. I have sometime noticed a small noise when doing the tilts. I didn't disasembled the sled to check if it was that but my idea was that it could come from the cable moving in the post, if it is not a coiled cable like in most modern sleds. If you have a way to check if that can be because of the cable I assume the solution would be to either replace it with a coiled one or to find anything to keep the cable in place without losing the ability to extend the post. Maybe I'm totally wrong about the reason. Let me know if you find out! Cédric

    arm hanger for Scout cart

    Hi Brad, I have seen something like that from Flowcine. I believe it is named Xpeg but not sure if it is available for now.

    Optimal compression rates - Starlite transvideo

    Hello, Unfortunately I don't have the answer but would be grateful if anyone as. I just received my Starlite HD+ and out of the box I had issues with picture freezing when recording, monitor rebooting on its own, not talking about the numerous glitches on the recorded video. Thanks everyone

    Video Device Pix-E5

    Hello Everyone, I was wondering if anyone has ever tried to use a Video Device Pix-E5 as a recorder/low mode monitor? I thought of it as I am looking for a recorder that could also double as lowmode monitor, but the fullHD screen is a bonus for me as I could also use it for pulling focus when I work as an AC. I have never had the chance to use it outside except by night. I think daylight viewability would not be that good as it is only 500nits, but I could still use my primary monitor for lowmode in the sun. Any Thought? Suggestions? Thank you.

    Exovest Fitting

    Thank you Chris, I will try with the velcro folded before cutting it. I also moved the rear pads more to the center and it seems way better now. I will now wait to give it a full day of work and see how better it is. Again thank you Chris for your help. Cédric

    Exovest Fitting

    Hi Chris, Thank you for answering so quickly. I checked and the retaining screws are on the shorter slide on both side. I just tried tightening it more, and giving the torso more lenght and it seems better. But the waist straps are pretty long (see pictures). Is there an easy way to shorten the velcro? Thank you.

    Exovest Fitting

    Hi everyone, I'm a new and happy owner of an exovest, that I used on two shooting days recently. I had no problem on the first one even carrying the rig for extended period of time, as the setup was quite light. This weekend with a heavier setup, as the day went I had the feeling that I was carrying to much weight on my shoulders and upper back, and that the rear waist pads barely put any pressure on my waist (I actually had the patern of the shoulder pad imprinted on my back for an hour and a half after the last shot). Is that something usual or should the rear pad feel snug even when the vest is under weight? The waist velcro straps are at the tightest (I have a 83cm waist), so I'm thinking about shortening them, but would appreciate some advice before doing it. I feel like I should have more weight on my waist. Thanks to everyone able to help.
  8. Hello Guys, I'm looking for a starter rig capable of lifting most camera packages (so, no zephyr or aero). I tought the Archer2 would be a good starting point. Ideally with a G50x or Pro Atlas arm, but i'm open for other arms. If you have a vest I could take it too, but this is not mendatory. If you have this or any other budget friendly Kit let me know! Thank you.
  9. Hello Everyone, I'm looking for a G50 or G50x Tiffen arm. If anyone has one he is thinking about selling let me know. Also interested if anyone has an Artemis vest to sell. Thank you guys! Cédric
