  1. Hey John, I made a blueprint for a practice cage last year and let a machinist make it for me. I didn't post it here in the forum because there are people like Janice Arthur who make them and sell them and I don't want to step on anybodys toes. You can hit me up via dm and we can talk about it. Cheers, Paul
  2. Hi Steve, actually I've worked on a lot of multicam productions during the last 1-2 years with this system. Only as a camera operator, so I dunno about all the functions of the base station. Here are a few things: -The audio quality isn't the best. Especially if you compare them to Riedel or Clear Com (at least that's what we use in Germany the most) - the headset mics have a weird gate, that sometimes you're latched in, but nobody can hear you. You have to bob the mic so the gate opens and its working again. Sometimes, really annyoing. - The 3,5mm jack is a great feat
  3. It’s also compatible with the newly released 1,74” Artemis posts from Arri.
  4. Hi, thanks for the offer! I already got a Pro Vest and a 3A Arm. :)
  5. Thanks :) I wired the top too and I‘ll upload some photos later. Got a 3A arm and a pro vest and there‘s a sled at hand soon, but I still think it’s a nice and easy upgrade for practice.
  6. Hey folks, I'm looking into buying a Master Vest and something in the range of 3A/EFP Arm. If you have anything to offer (or similar) PM me. Preferably EU/UK, but not exclusively. Cheers, Paul
  7. So I continued working on the wiring and the hardware and so far it's been really fun. I decided to skip the 12/24V switchable electronics and just go with 12V. It makes everything a lot more easier and because of the really narrow center post I was able to cramonly a quiet thin coiled cable inside and tape a thin 75 Ohm coax cable to the coiled one. (I couldn't find a coiled sdi cable that was thin enough and it worked out that way too.) Because of the small AWG, I decided to power the cameras only with their on battery on the back and use my sled power for accessories and counter weight
  8. Thanks for your advice Janice, I appreciate it. I'm not planning to use this rig in a commercial way (Unless I'm pretty sure that it's going to work). It is more for practice and tests and unpaid shoots with friends. The time is not an issue for me (as it's more of a passion project) and the costs will be rather low. If it's finished I'll figure out what will be possible with this rig and what will be the max. load. Regarding the wiring: I figured a crucial mistake! I'll definitely need to install Diodes to prevent the current from firing back into the battery, causing sh
  9. Hey folks, I'm new to the forum and new to Steadicam operating. Currently, I'm practicing with a cheap chinese steadicam knock-off. It's fine for what it is and I'm just getting started so it wouldn't have made sense to invest in an expensive rig from the beginning (financial situation aside). So I've been practicing and the rig is really ok and I'll be able to use it for some more time until I can afford a professional rig. Besides the ok working mechanics, the electronics are not existing or just not really useful. So I planned some diy battery and wiring upgrade. Things I wa
