  1. Hi all, Anyone have a recommendation for a great source for website creation, ability to edit video & reasonably priced? Need to spice up outdated web page. Thanks, Mark
  2. Alec, thanks for catching my typo. XCS is indeed making the 1.75" post. Alex, physics requires a smaller post will be slightly less rigid, but a wound carbon fiber post will be significantly stiffer than an aluminum 1.5" post. XCS does not compromise quality. Greg Bubb can give you the exact specs on stiffness for the 1.75" post. It's the only way to mount a M2 Volt gimbal on an XCS post. Like many, I've waited for someone to make a 2" version of the Volt, because I didn't want to give up my XCS post. The XCS solution of making a 1.75" post is a simple, yet elegant solution. I think it's the best, most rigid setup for a Volt available.
  3. My shiny new Volt M2 and XCS 1.75" post are in, so swapping over this month. Just wondering, are Volt owners holding onto their old gimbals as a backup, or is the Volt robust and never have the need?
  4. Greg Bubb at XCS is not making a 1.75" wound carbon fiber post that is compatible with the Volt M2 gimbal. XCS makes this post with either XCS or PRO connectors. It's an elegant solution for those of us who'd like to get a Volt, but don't want to give up our super still XCS posts.
  5. Arri Part # K2.47767.0, bracket to mount EL-3 eyepiece leveler to ArriHead. This is the bracket only, EL-3 can be bought separately. This bracket is brand new, never used. It was ordered by mistake and has been sitting in my kit for a while, so too long to return. Make an offer!

  7. Redbyte Decimator 3G/HD to NTSC/PAL Downconverter. Was spare and never used. Excellent condition. Includes AB P Tap to Decimator power cable and mounting brackets. $100 obo Buyer pays shipping
  8. The V2 MK-V/Hummingbird LCD is the brightest daylight viewable LCD – sun hood not required. This monitor was designed specifically for MK-V and ‘Steadicam™’ work. (PAL & NTSC – auto switching). This monitor does not really have a NITS rating as it is trans-reflective and the more light that hits the screen the better the picture. This new V2 monitor has a 6.4″ (4:3) diagonal screen and 4:3, 16:9, 2:1 and user aspect ratios as standard. Built in frame lines, center cross and border. Zoom in and out. Flip and reverse scan. And built in heaters for working in sub zero temperatures. Plus PRO compatible connections and built in Tally lights (for use with the V3 system). The back box also has a battery input, so you can power the monitor off the sled with your MK-V battery module. There is also Video in & out BNC connectors and a 0b 4 pin transmitter output (12v & Video) Monitor is updated with 75 ohm terminator and switch for internal LCD heater. No scratches on screen. Monitor includes: - PRO 8 Pin power / video cable. - PRO / XCS monitor bracket spud. Make an offer!
  9. Price Drop to $900 or best offer. I had initially put the asking price at 25% of new cost, but lowering for a quick sale.
  10. Luca, most Sony cameras have an adjustable voltage for the low voltage alarm. I always set it as low as it will go, usually around 11.5 volts. You may very well have had enough voltage to run the camera, but the voltage alarm might have been set high. Did someone look at that?
  11. I'm selling my trusty Dynawave (Modulus style transmitter made by David Hable at Cramped Attic) system with Transmitter, Antenna, Tuner/Receiver, Director's Monitor and all the cables needed. Everything is in perfect working order. The system includes: Dynawave UHF Transmitter Ch. 14 - 69 (made by David Hable at Cramped Attic) Straight and L Antenna for Dynawave 2 x PRO to Dynawave video/power cables 1 x 4 pin XLR to Dynawave power cable 1 x Arri 12v (11 pin) to Dynawave power cable 1 x Arri 24v (3 pin) to Dynawave power cable 1 x Anton Bauer P Tap to Dynawave power cable Sony TU-1110 UHF Tuner / Receiver, Ch. 14 - 69 1 x 4 pin XLR power cable for Sony TU-1110 Wolf Seeburg Sharkfin Antenna with baby spud mount Camos TFT LCD 7" Director's Monitor Battery mount on back 2 x Sony NP-QM91D high capacity batteries 1 x Sony Battery Charger Custom handles and Hoodman $1750 or best offer.

  12. Does anyone have any strong opinions about the best docking bracket for a Volt? I'm upgrading to a Volt gimbal, and Tiffen has designed the Volt padded fork to mount directly into my Hill bracket. I love the Hill bracket, so thinking of just adding the Volt padded fork to my existing bracket. Any reason the Tiffen bracket would be better? Thanks, Mark
