  1. I disagree. You want the rig to feel the same so that your muscle memory is the same. It allows you to NOT think about the rig and just allow it to be an extension of yourself when you operate Constantly changing the rigs response just introduces muscular confusion.
  2. I prefer a fast rig, so I keep mine short and tight, I do not like lazy long rigs
  3. Only two in that list to choose from. FlowCine XArm NB Stabiliser Arm. The other two are huge skips
  4. Steve Fracol is selling his Cinetronics VER 1
  5. The gimbal is not centered on the post and the post is probably not round. Pretty much un fixable on those rigs. it’s one of the reasons that everyone won’t by the cheap crap
  6. Those are pins not screws are they are there for safety if the bond between the carbon and the aluminum fails leave them alone they are not user serviceable parts
  7. why is it taking you 15mins to convert to studio? Power, SDI and crack it off the sled. Drop it on a head and done less than 5 mins going slow
  8. If it seems to good to be true it usually is. and that’s the way it is in this situation. That stuff is pretty bad, really bad. Like don’t waste your time and money bad
  9. Practice it’s ok. Use on a set? It’s garbage
  10. Riedel Bolero. you can even use your own Bluetooth earpiece like the AirPods
  11. Find a used PRO. One and done, you will never need to buy another rig again
  12. No, it will give you the foundation to start building your skills as a steadicam operator but it will not get you work one other thing to consider, are you already an operator? Knowing steadicam doesn’t make you an operator you need to decent at that skill before you add steadicam
  13. No, Why would you need to know that? What would it change shot wise? I'd rather be improving the shot than looking at that
  14. Anytime you have a rig that doesn't stay balanced when panned has one of the following three issues The Gimbal is not centered The post is not round Weight is moving Its really that simple
