  1. I have not. Sometimes the AC's change batteries on the rig between takes or setups without telling me and calibration is lost.
  2. There is an instructional video on the Tiffen website as to how best to avoid the bump. I still prefer to use it in "Sticky" mode where it locks in perfectly with no bump wherever I leave it.
  3. Have you tried, when balancing it on the stand, tilting the rig up or down 45 degrees, locking in the tilt and seeing if it pans left or right? If it pans adjust the side to side balance until it stops. Maybe this will fix your issue. I believe there is a video that Tiffen made showing how to properly balance the Volt.
  4. I suppose I know the answer but wondering why Anton/Bauer does not offer an option to re-cell their batteries and save the planet from more plastic waste? Honestly, I could have taken advantage of the trade in offer at only a slightly higher cost but I found the reuse/recycle option so much more appealing.
  5. If it wasn't clear, he is looking to buy one.
  6. So the problem is that toggle switch is blocking the lock knob from going any higher? Just cut it shorter with a hack saw. or change out the plastic headed thumb screw with a smaller allen headed bolt.
  7. I'm guessing the directing thing is working out for you ;-)
  8. If you are having trouble in the future just offer to buy Jim Bartell a few beers and he will fly over to Paris and repair it.

  10. Sweet! Is there a demo before purchase opportunity?
  11. We work in a world where being seen in a reflection is bad, and for live operators the need is to remain as unobtrusive as possible. And providing the least amount of distraction to the actors. Anything but black is unprofessional, in my opinion.
  12. I have experienced an issue when I set a tilt angle and release my hold the frame dips ever so slightly. This is in "normal" mode. When in "sticky" mode the tilt remains exactly where it's set. I did a firmware update maybe 4 months ago that was supposed to fix this issue but it only fixed it in sticky mode. Perhaps there is a more recent update?
  13. Damn that sucks. Do these storage companies assume any financial liability for break-ins? Do they sell you insurance like the car rental companies do?
