  1. Always wear full blacks...so you blend with as much of the background and can stay hidden in the shadows as much as possible. That screaming white t shirt makes you stand out and more easily seen by other cameras which is a big no no.

  3. Rare and awesome collapsable “Murphy” steadicam cart. Small footprint. Very Sturdy. Breaks down and has a lid for storage/shipping. Prefer local LA pickup. $1500.00 USD cash. If interested please email: trieb@me.com
  4. I would recommend the X1 arm over the Tiffen arm. I personally know a few operators who's G series arms have popped on set and been rendered useless. The quality of components and the assembly of the Tiffen arms done overseas has lead to some issues. I know some top operators who've been using the X1 for a little while now and are all very happy. I demoed one the other day and it was great. Also light and slim profile. Having said that I'm still a Pro arm user and won't be giving that up.
  5. Most Operators in North America use either a Stanton zoom/focus unit, or a Gzoom. Pros and cons to both. Whichever you choose, it's best to get 2 of the same units in case you have failure on set.
  6. I receive replies from John Battiloro who's their USA rep when I ask questions about their 2" volt gimbal. Maybe reach out to him on FB messenger, that's how I've been communicating with him. As far as I know MKV only reopened 3weeks ago.
  7. I've never flown a Betz or a DBIII. What I find interesting are the different opinions on how "solid" different ops describe the Betz. Some say it's super solid, and zero vibration, while others describe it as the opposite. If some operators are experiencing vibration what advice would you give to troubleshoot it?
  8. This is pretty awesome. Love the execution. Just curious...what if your wave stops working and needs service? Do you have another top stage to swap into the mix?
  9. Hi! I would stay away from these lower end products. It will cause you frustration and you'll want to get rid of it quickly. Best to stick to the main brands, even if they are older units that can be serviced/upgraded by the same manufactures who are still in business today.
  10. I think most of us insure the gear for full replacement value, whether it's used gear or new. If your kit gets stolen or damaged you will want to be able to order new components as fast as possible to keep working.
  11. I owned a Master Sled, and still own the arm as backup. The arm is decent. The reality you must face, and be honest with yourself about, is are you prepared to put a lot of work and money into upgrading the sled? I've seen some nice looking upgrades that pretty much re-do the entire sled, but at that point are you really saving much money compared to getting into a lightly used PRO sled for example? The Master is not modular. Top stage has way too much potential to come loose and cause all sorts of problems. It was a good gimbal but if it needs service you can't simply remove it from the sled. I realize many are trying to get into the steadicam craft on a ridiculously low budget compared to investing in top gear brand new and creating a relationship with the manufacturer....but personally...I'd recommend staying away from all these older CP/Tiffen products as your primary sled. You WILL have headaches.
  12. Haha Mr Fowler! I consider the XCS Ultimate 2HD (and soon the Ultimate 3) to be the RR, despite the masses adopting the Volt on their Tiffen and Pro sleds.
  13. Any updates to share about this twitching? I demo’d the Volt at Cinegear again. The Tiffen rep mentioned this might happen if the side to side adjustment on the top stage was off a little. Any feedback about this comment? Also there were comments about the Volt box, if it’s not mounted properly with zero vibration possibilities it can also affect the performance consistency.
