    Taveling with Gear

    I've Got my setup down to 3 cases for travel. Maybe i'm paranoid but i just like bringing everything. 1 Storm case for my BFD and focus motors, C-Stand, Cables, Prompter, G-zoom, Batts and Charger, and a couple extra goodies 2 Thermodyne Steadicam Cases. One for my rig. One for my arm and Vest. I'm gonna check out that Cart David.
  3. Greetings all. I am Listing my baby. My Clipper 24 Sled She has served me well, but alas, i have to make room for some new toys. This is a LIVE TV rig. And has been shooting Broadcast TV here in NYC. She is 100% ready to go out of the box. Well sorta. All you need is an HD monitor, Batts, a BFD and you're ready to go. She is in PRISTINE condition. This is not a slacker rig. Her last mission was the 2015 NYC Marathon. Mens Elite!! This is a Clipper 24 with V-Mount power supply. Sorry all you AB Lovers, but i like V-mounts better. Completely upgraded with new HD-SDI wiring. It includes all the cables and whatever extra goodies i have that i don't need anymore. Add your own HD Monitor with Tally and you're ready to go. Tally is sent to the monitor using a Cat-5 connector. That's the one that looks like a Phone jack. I also have my old SD monitor, and i can throw that in if you need it. You get.... Steadicam Clipper 24 with V-Mount battery supply and Tilt Stage head Docking bracket 2 Camera Plates 2 Tally Sensors 2 Monitor power/Video/Tally Cables 12V camera power supply (Lemo to 4 pin xlr) Monitor Rods and Monitor Bracket (NO MONITOR) unless you want my old SD monitor. I can throw that in. Assorted BNC Cables. Steadicam Hard Case Clipper Owners Manual The Steadicam Handbook, autographed by Garrett Brown himself. The hard case needs a little work. One of the wheels was damaged by Delta. Thermodyne is the maker of the case and it has a Lifetime guarantee. I have been assured by them that the wheel can be fixed....free of charge btw. Asking Price $10,500 OBO Email me....... Steadimanny@mac.com

    Rob, Are you using magic clown cases!!! You MUST post pics of your set up. Manny
  5. How do you Travel with Gear??? Hello Production Family. SteadiManNY here. Over the past few years i have been lucky enough to travel with my gear to some pretty amazing places. But recent changes in flight regulations, and excessive baggage fees, have made it a real challenge to not only get your gear where it has to go safely, but cost effectively as well. And with the rules differing from airline to airline, its hard to estimate the cost of traveling with your gear. Some airlines have strict weight limits. Others will not let you check your Lithium ion batteries. Delta's recent announcement that they would be discontinuing there "Media Rates" for excess baggage and weight, adds even more to the cost. And lets not forget those heart wrenching moments when you get to your destination the day of the gig, only to find out your equipment didn't. So I wanna know....How Do you travel with gear? Over the Next few weeks, i will be posting pictures and advice on how i travel and sometimes, even ship my gear. I would love to hear from all of you. Share your stories, good and bad, and hopefully we can all learn something and save a ton of $$$$ Best, Manny Torres SteadiManNY
  6. Good day All, Up for sale is my Steadicam Clipper 24. SLED ONLY!!!!! I have another listing up for this, but i added a few more goodies to the Box. This is the Steadicam Clipper 24, 2005 model. This rig is in PRISTINE condition, and would be great for anyone thinking of upgrading to a more heavy duty sled. This rig has been shooting Live TV in NYC for 10 years. Her Last mission was the 2015 NYC Marathon, Mens elite circuit. :) Arri Alexa, Sony, Ikegami, you name it, she's flown it. It is 24v and 12v capable. Tilt head stage. V-Mount Battery This Sled has been completely re-wired for full HD!!!! I have been using my Marshal HD monitor with this sled for a while now. I am Including my old Steadicam SD Monitor.

    Upgrade to an HD Monitor

    Hi guys, Its been a while since i posted but here goes. I have a Steadficam Clipper 24. Great rig and it serves me well, but i need to upgrade from my Composite 700 nit stock monitor to a shiny new HD monitor. Problem is i can never get a straight answer from Steadicam if this will even work on my rig. It was originally wired for RGB to get HD on my rig, which no one uses anymore. One guy at Tiffen says i can get an HD signal down that line. another guy says no way. Wondering if ther are any Clipper 24 users out there who may have found a solution to this problem. Any ideas woud be greatly appreciated. Manny SteadiManNY

    Hey Kyle, I'm not a flyer owner. I have a Clipper 24 with G-50 arm. But i am in Brooklyn. Nice to meet you. Manny
  14. I purchased the Decimator a few months back and all i can say is awesome. Liked it so much i Told Alec Jarnagin about it and i think he bought 2!! You'll have to confirm that with him though. Much smaller than the AJA, and so much cheaper too. Did i mention it comes in a really sexy red aluminum body. Really, very sexy. Thanks for posting this.
