I bought this from Portuguese operator Leandro Silva back in November/December as my first arm and have since decided to back out of my Steadicam plans due to other opportunities in life opening up. The arm was used very little by Leandro, as it was his second arm, and last year he had it upgraded by smartsystem to their latest DynaSpring version. I myself have never had a chance to use it beyond a couple tests.
The arms is provided with old silver springs as well as the new black and blue dynasprings
It is in a “temporary” rifle case which could quite easily be its permanent case, I’m sure that’s what would have happened with me!
It is provided with a neoprene (i think) rain cover
My experience communicating with SmartSystem and their owner/engineer Andrea Falcucci has been amazing and he is on all the facebook groups and forums etc. You can transfer registration of the arm by its serial number and they will provide support.
As a very new operator who never even had a chance to get to grips with the arm my opinion doesn’t count for much, but i researched it thoroughly before purchasing and by all accounts it is an incredible arm (and not JUST for the money).. but I’m sure if you are looking to buy the arm you will have done your own research.
Looking for £4900, which is what i paid for it and a great deal. I’m in London so sale would ideally be in UK where price would be +VAT, but happy to deal with getting it shipped elsewhere at your expense if necessary.
