    Green Screen Monitors

    Hello all! After listening to "Walking Backwards", I've noticed they talk about green screen monitors quite a bit. I'd love to learn more about them, the pros and cons vs LCD, if people still use them, etc... I realize this is probably a very old topic. I've been running into glare quite a bit on my LCD. Thanks in advance!!!

    Hi everyone! I'd like to get some thoughts on walkaways and what everyone does with their gear. I've only had a couple and each time I've packed up my gear at the end of the night and took it home. We were at a house, which the homeowner still occupied each night, so it made me wary. If we were on a secured stage, I might have left it and felt more comfortable about doing so. I do have insurance on my gear. I'd like to hear everyone's thoughts on the subject! Thanks!

    Glidecam X-45 Sled

    Thanks Nicholaus! The dovetail question might be a direct one for Glidecam. Thanks for your comments on the rig, that's exactly why I'm interested in the rig, I'd like to get a big rig at a decent price!

    Glidecam X-45 Sled

    Hey! I also wanted to follow up and see how the sled has held up! Is the dovetail plate the same size as the other big rigs?

    Zephyr Weight???

    I believe the Zephyr can fly a camera payload up to 23lbs. From Tiffen's site "9 to 23lbs.(4 to 10.4kg) net camera weight"

    New gimbal on Zephyr

    Thanks for sharing your experiences! Did you notice anything during the time up until it snapped, or was it out of the blue? This is a great fear of mine; a sudden failure while on set oping. I feel the same way about the arm. Every time I've flown a bigger build, 18-19lbs, I still have a lot of room left in the arm to go heavier. I'm not sure if any other gimbal fits the Zephyr or Aero sled, I think our post is one inch? If you find yourself always pushing the limit, it might be time to upgrade the rig!

    Steadicam Accessories

    Hi Rob! For batteries, I've been quite happy with Core SWX Hypercore 98. For follow focus, I've used the tilta Nuclous M, and it was good. But the Bartech is probably what I would buy for myself. For wireless video, teradek bolt 500 is solid option. I don't have any experience with teleprompters. Hope this helps!

    New gimbal on Zephyr

    I am VERY interested in learning about the same topic! I have the Aero30. What happens when you go over 23lbs? Do you notice your rig acting differently? Also, how did the gimbal break? Was it a slow break over time, or a sudden failure? Would an upgraded gimbal increase the payload capacity?

    Zephyr Vest - Socket Block to Center Spar Issue

    Update: Took the vest to Tiffen in Burbank and they replaced the pin. They told me I could fly without the pin as the nut that tightens the socket block to the center spar is what counts on the Zephyr vest. They also tightened the 6 bolts in the picture above to make the socket block hold tighter on the center spar. Hope this helps anyone in the future!!!
