    Pro Atlas Arm (Famous Camo) 2 Gray Canisters

    Brett, as I understood it, Jack only made a few of them in the first run of 10. My arm is S/N 3. It was meant to be a special addition. How many camo ones did he make? I took it because I was building a lightweight sled at the time. I have since sold the sled but still have the arm which I keep in case I want to get into gimbal work or to use with my seldom used Twister. I may sell it one of these days because I've literally onlly used it a few times but I just love it and keep thinking I'll find more use for it! (Obviously, I have a Titan arm too).

    Green Screen Monitors

    The TB-6 (made by XCS) was and is the best of the best green screens (IMHO, but most would agree... GPI PRO had a great one too). Took me years before I gave mine up.

    Pro Atlas Arm (Famous Camo) 2 Gray Canisters

    Love this arm. I have one of the first ones done in gold. Its was hard to choose between these two great looks. Someone buy this!

    I usually ask the ACs, "what are you doing with the camera bodies and lenses?" That is where I want my rig. I've seen "walk aways" where Production has the Cameras locked up. Others are truly left in place as is with a space blanket thrown over them. Also, make sure you have an insurance certificate from the Production naming you so its on their dime should they underestimate the security.

    Chris McGuire was the operator. A bit more info on this thread here:

    NAB 2019 - M2

    Have to agree with Austin about the usefulness of the FB interface. This is a MCUH better venue for professional/ORGANIZED discussions. Certainly easier to search for later. So, lets get to to and post some more info on the M2. Looks fascinating.

    Pro Lite and or components

    Great sled! I sold mine off last year (Bob Uland's old one) because I just wasn't using it. Good luck.

    Arri LF/PRO Power Problem

    Camera powered down or stopped recording? Were you rolling endlessly? I have seen that camera overheat and stop recording (in studio mode). You can’t roll endlessly but I think you’re talking strictly power.

    Game changing Betz Modification

    This is great. Can you please post additional photos? Front and side views? I wonder if there is a way to do this with the DB3 as well?

    XCS Basic HD PDL

    That is a nice saving on a great level. I already own one and am tempted for my second sled, but can't justify it. Someone grab this!

    Buying old vs new - cheap rigs- Steadicam Master Series

    What Janice says! Nothing wrong with older rigs - just make sure they don't vibrate or are so different from newer models that ACs want to run away (don't under estimate how much work they get you). Indeed, look at used PRO sleds too.

    WTB XCS Ergo Handle GOOFY

    A few notes for what it is worth... Greg still has a few of the "Goofy" ergo handles left (see what I did there) $1800. Right handed ones are sold out. This is one of the most wonderful inventions ever and may become extinct once all are sold out as the price of production has gone beyond reasonable.

    Weight cages and Plates

    Janice, Julian, Julian, Janice. Just thought I'd throw down an intro since you're both wonderful people. Janice, Julian was at one time a fabulous focus puller and 1st AC before he moved up and bought a rig. Don't get to see him as much these days, but a fine lad!

    Ditto to Jerry.
