  1. Selling my backup hard mount. Yes it's not much to look at but it works. One of the plastic wing nut caps broke off but shouldn't be hard to replace. Comes with tie down nut. Buyer pays shipping. Ships from Toronto. Price $400 USD.
  2. Preston DM5 Motor and Jerry Hill PAM bracket for sale. This DM5 motor was purchased directly from Preston in 2018 and is no longer needed in my kit. It is in virtually brand new condition, never consigned and used very sparingly as an occasional zoom motor. It is cosmetically in excellent condition and of course functions perfectly. It comes with a rosette and full Jerry hill universal PAM clamp, allowing it to clamp to any size rod. Replace your aging DM2's with this great motor! Asking $2,500 USD plus shipping. Ships from Toronto, Ontario.
  3. Teradek Bolt 600 Transmitter & Receiver, plus Sidekick I for sale. COMES WITH: - Bolt 600 Transmitter with two long antennas, D-Tap power cable and coiled BNC. - Sidekick Gen I Receiver compatible with Bolt 600 - Bolt 600 Receiver with 5 Antennas, XLR power cable and coiled BNC. - Gold Mount Bolt 600 Receiver cradle, allows you to power the receiver from a gold mount battery. - Carrying Case This kit has very low usage. Originally purchased from the DVShop in Toronto in 2016 and barely used since, as most productions here have taken to the Boxx Atom system. Great starter kit! Asking $1,500 USD. Ships from Toronto, Ontario.
  4. Selling this Ward's Sniper Mk III in excellent condition. It is the full kit from Jon Ward that comes with a 17 and 5 degree Xylon, as well as the pan/tilt bracket to motorize the L/R aiming. The display box has been firmware upgraded to adjust the offset wirelessly. Comes in a custom Storm case with foam cutouts, and manual. Tons of cables (Arri 24V, 12V, PTap, Panavision power, MDR Interface cables) Custom braided 3-Pin power/MDR interface thin combo cable with 90-degree connectors included as well. Since switching to a Light Ranger and now LR2W, I have no need for this in my kit. Excellent deal. Purchased in 2016 for $13,000! Asking $4,000 USD.
  5. FOR SALE: Mint condition XCS Ergo handle purchased in 2017. Used on one short job and switched to a straight handle. This is for normal (non-goofy) operators. Non-slip skin is in new condition, no hand oils or stripping. Comes with 5/32 allow screw. Handle in pristine condition, as if new. Buyer pays shipping. ASKING $950 USD.
  6. Is anybody out there interested in a gimbal handle trade? I have a brand new Ergo handle (non-goofy) for my XCS gimbal and am interested in doing a trade for a standard handle. Looking for something in brand new or near brand new condition, as mine was purchased, tested once or twice, and not really used beyond that. It is essentially brand new. Message me if you're interested!
  7. Hello everyone. I'm helping a fellow 1st AC sell his beloved Preston kit. This kit would make a perfect steadicam starter kit. This kit has been regularly maintained and serviced, and has been owned by one owner only, and never consigned to a rental house or subrented. It is very well looked after and has no issues. Motors run quiet. Seller recently upgraded MDR and motors, hence the reason for selling. FOR SALE: MDR2 (M+ and Blue Dot Upgraded*) - Serial#1842 - $2,200.00 USD * When upgraded, blue dot sticker was not applied but unit is in fact blue dot upgraded. DM1x Motor - Serial#3133 - $2,100.00 USD DM2 Motor - Serial#4027 - $1,900.00 USD MDR2 Mounting Brackets - 3 Brackets - $300 USD - Rocket Surgery Alexa Handle Rear Mounted Bracket, Mk.I Lightweight Single Orientation - Camera Positioning Systems Mk.I Spider Bracket w/ Arri & Panavision Dovetail Arms - Camera Positioning Systems Mk.II Spider Bracket w/ Arri & Panavision Dovetail Arms Cable Pack - Run/Stop & Power Cables - $500 USD - 2x Arriflex Run/Stop MDR2, 3-Pin Fischer - 2x Arriflex Power 24V, 3-Pin Fischer - 1x 11-Pin Fischer 12V Power - 1x Panavision 24V Lemo Power (1S.302) - 2x Control Cables, MDR2, 10-Pin Lemo - 2x Varicam/F55 Hirose Run/Stop MDR2, 4-Pin Hirose Package Total: $7,000 USD Would prefer to sell as a complete package and will entertain offers for complete package first, before breaking the kit up. Buyer pays shipping and all applicable taxes and duties. Located in Toronto, Canada. Shipment via FedEx or Canada Post Ground. HST/GST will apply for Canadian buyers. Thank you!
  8. I second this. Have done two features now with this system and the ability to change channels easily, and the durability of the signal through studio walls, on location, in concrete basements, is unreal. I wouldn't do another show without these. Even dealing with signal loss is noticeably better, it is a more gradual degradation as you lose signal as opposed to just a complete dropout. I hope someone buys this, it is a fantastic price too!
  9. Still available. Some interest, but no sale. Make me an offer!
  10. FOR SALE: Brand new SmallHD 1303 HDR Production Monitor and accessories. Purchased in November from the DVShop in Toronto. Tested once and put back into original packaging. Panel has less than 2 hours on it. I was going to use this monitor as a focus monitor, but decided to stick to the 703 instead due to being in such tight sets. The monitor comes with a Gold Mount Power Kit/Cheese Plate, as well as a Sun Shade and one Rapid Rail Mount for mounting a wireless receiver. The gold mount plate features small risers that raises the plate up by approximately 1/2", to allow a standard Vesa mount to attach underneath it. SmallHD designed the cheeseplate/gold mount adapter to conflict with standard Vesa mounts, forcing you to use the SmallHD C-Stand/Table mount, which I do not like because it does not tilt. This modification from VFGadgets allows you to use any tilting Vesa mount of your choice. Brand new, this monitor goes for $3,499 USD. Accessories valued at $450 USD. I am asking $3,000 USD for the package. Buyer pays shipping. Pictures can be sent upon request, but would prefer not to take the monitor out of the packaging.
  11. Hello Light Ranger 2 users! The wait is finally over. Newly designed cheese plates for the Light Ranger 2 VOU are now available. These cheese plates follow the proven design of the MDR cheese plates designed by Kar Wai Ng. Now you can attach and fix a CineLock to your VOU to mount it on the camera, on the focus monitor, or just about anywhere. This is one of the most versatile and simple cheese plate designs on the market. Just ask anyone with a Kar Wai MDR cheese plate! These plates were designed in collaboration with Engineered Cinema Solutions, in Canada. They are available for sale for $145 CAD, or about $120 USD. You can purchase them now at Engineered Cinema Solutions or FilmFrog Media! Pair your VOU with a P-Tap VOU Splitter cable, and simultaneously power your VOU and HD Video Receiver (Teradek, Boxx) from a single P-Tap outlet on your focus monitor! This cable is assembled in Canada and available in different configurations starting at $200 CAD, or about $165 USD.
  12. FOR SALE: DM2 Motor No. 4922 Excellent condition. Purchased new in 2012 and only owner. Motor runs quiet and fast. Recently serviced. Comes with a Jerry Hill rosette installed. Original 15mm motor posts can be included upon request. Cosmetically has a few bumps and scratches, but overall looks great. See pictures. Asking: $2000 USD Shipping via Canada Post to Canada or US destinations included. Thank you!
  13. Hey Alex. I have done this before with a small shaving mirror mounted flat to the chart in the center. A lens light on the camera can help find where the camera roughly is (it can be hard to find at the really long distances), but essentially find the front element of the lens in the reflection in the tiny mirror. So long as the mirror is mounted flush to the chart and the chart is perfectly flat, there should be nothing else you need to do to get perfectly square at any distance. The only thing this doesn't help with is the 'roll' axis, but I find levelling the chart and camera should take care of this axis. J
