    LEH Weight

    Curious if anyone can give the weights of the various Ultimate LEHs? Thought I'd ask here first before going to Greg. Cheers!
  2. @Alfeo Dixon SOC I believe Nate Anderson has one. If you need his contact, let me know.
  3. While I don't use a low mode monitor (haven't really seen a need yet), the transvideo seems most popular as far as low mode goes (especially if you're looking to also have a recorder). Second to that I'd suggest the small hd 503UB. My two cents. I'm sure someone who actually uses a low mode monitor can weigh in with more advice.
  4. The pad that I have for sale is too small for me. The pad I currently use is the perfect size for me. I hope I’m answering your question correctly.
  5. As far as pants and shorts are concerned, I have a 30" waist. However, following Pro's measuring guide, the waist pad that I actually use with my Pro vest is 34".
  6. Essentially a brand new waist pad. Long story short, fucked up the measuring process the first time around and here we are. The pad has been sitting on my shelf for a while now and I'm never going to fit it. Located in Atlanta. Happy to ship anywhere. $150
  7. XCS Short Handle for sale. Switched to an Ergo handle so no longer needing it. Greg gave it a once over and signed off on it. Was also surprised to see it still in use. Hole punched out for low mode. Happy to ship anywhere. Located in Atlanta. Asking $500
  8. Simeon, I believe that is correct. Below is a link to a similar, though brief discussion of overall payload support for the Zephyr system and should help give more insight into your limitations. Cheers
  9. Personally I'd go with the heavier weight for when you need to counter against a particularly large camera build. It will allow you to keep your post relatively compact, while still hopefully giving you a drop time you like. The inverse can happen though if you're flying mostly light builds where the bottom of the sled can get so heavy to the point where you're now moving your gimbal farther down the post and away from the camera's CG to make it more top heavy and get a better drop time. You could add more wight back on top to balance it out or fly one battery for the whole sled (if it's wired that way)...it's all about balance at the end of the day. Also, I don't know what the overall weight limit is on the Zephyr. So that would be the first thing in deciding which one to go with. As far as experience with the batteries goes, I like Anton Bauers line and use them personally. I have heard great things about Beebob, but have no on set experience with them. I've recently been looking at the new Core SWX Helix 150s.
  10. @Dustin Supencheck, Google sheets is fine. Excel or Numbers also works. Anything that allows you to neatly list your gear and its full cost. Make sure to keep it constantly updated. You should get in the habit of asking production to supply you a certificate of insurance (like they would for any gear house) with you or your company as the payee. You send them a copy of the itemized list you created and they send you a certificate. You should also try and get your own steadicam insurance policy. Do a weekly rate (or daily if you're a day player and your rig comes and goes with you), but it's totally up to you how you negotiate. If your rig is on a production, it can't be used on another whether or not it's working, so make sure you get paid for it. Also, if you dig around in the forum you'll find that a lot of productions will put up a fight on paying a loan out for the kit rental (If you want the kit paid directly to you on your normal pay stub then disregard this bit). I think there is also some grey area on production insurance and your kit being paid as a box rental, so make sure you do your research there. Hopefully someone else will chime in, but I believe some of this has been discussed before under the Legal/Business Practice section.
  11. In order to reply in the for sale section or wanted section you need to be a premium member. It’s pinned somewhere in the forum sections (I’m sorry I can’t remember which) and I think on the desktop site it’s in the side banner somewhere. It’s a one time fee paid via paypal.
  12. Hi @Paulo Aurelio, there are definitely used rigs for sale on here (would encourage you to use the search function on the site). You can also find some smaller packages that might be more in your budget on the Steadicam Marketplace group on Facebook. As far as choosing the best rig. That's more personal. Think about what most of your work entails and the kind of cameras you use. A lot of entry level packages have small weight limits, though you can always mix and match your gear to best fit what you need. Again, using the search feature or browsing through the "steadi-newbies" and "general discussion" sections will yield a wealth of information.
