  1. Hey everyone, i've recently gotten a problem with my AK4500 The motors are shaking like crazy, it seems like it can't support the wait of the camera, i've been using the gimbal for a year with the same weight (BMPCC4K + Smallrig case) and have never seen this before. It stopped working after a long shoot (around 5 hours with the gimbal active) Do any of you guys happen to know what the problem is, and maybe how to fix it? Thank you in advance -Adam
  2. Hello, today I’m selling the gimbal that originally came on my PRO I sled. It’s not the smoothest or comfiest gimbal to hold, but it’s still kickin! A cleaning and lubrication would be ideal, but can definitely be used just as it currently is. The grip was wrapped with what I believe was 3M tacky tape at sometime, which is pretty nice actually, but not sure what it looks like underneath. For 5/8 arm posts $500 (or best offer) + shipping takes them both. call/text: (805) 320-1845 located in LA/Ventura
  3. I could be barking up the wrong tree here as it seems most posts here relate to high end gear, but I was wondering if there was any Weebill Lab users out there who could answer a couple of questions for me? I have just Picked up a second hand one, and having never used any gimbal before I was wondering if what I have found is normal... or if indeed I need to be contacting the seller! Firstly, the Pitch and Yaw axis can all be locked in place, but the roll only locks in one direction. I'm thinking this should not be the case. Secondly, There seems to be a lot of play in the gimbal arms, I would imagine they should fit snug. Footage I have capture seems to have a lot of movement and jumps...which is exactly why I got a gimbal to eliminate this! Any advice? Jim

  5. Now when many friends out there change to the Volt, are there any PRO gimbals for sale? I’m looking for a newer and/or in good condition PRO gimbal with the clamp grip. Don’t need the VZ thing (.. or you have to convince me). Please send me a private message including photos of your gimbal. All the best, TOMAS
  6. Hi All, So I just had my gimbal serviced. When I got it back, I went to balance it, and it is very out of balance, I can static balance it fine. But when spun 180 degrees, it tilts back quite severely. I chased it around for about an hour (rebalancing to where it would land). Same thing every time. Does anyone know how I can balance this myself? Please say it's easy. Any help, and the sooner the better, would be GREATLY appreciated, as I obviously need this for work. Thank you in advance.

  8. Hello I thought I would share with you a "one man band" rig designed for those like me, who like to use "enterprise" classic gear. I am not a steadicam operator. I did do a Steadicam EFP course in Los Angeles in around 1994 but after doing a few jobs, I quickly realised it was not my future. 30 years later, I still make films as my way to express myself and I want good gear to work with. My personal rig consists of: Red Epic MX Angenieux 24-70mm 2.8f Redrock Micro with Thumbwheel Heden M26VE zhiyun crane 3s zhiyun powerpack zhiyun easysling handle Smallrig zhiyun crane 3s arms and handles SoundDevices 302 mixer 2x Micron Explorer Radio receivers Manfrotto 123 rotule Aigle Concorde Arm & Vest. I had been using the Aigle concorde rig with the above kit (except the zhiyun crane 3s) for a bit with disappointing results. Aigle concorde is an excellent solution for the price with its elastic band arm (I really do recommend it for thos looking an affordable professional rig); I want to shoot at 50mm and with my talents, the rig was all over the place. So eventually, I thought maybe a gimbal would be better suited to my needs and abilities (which are very basic). The rig weighs on the arm about 12kgs, which is starting to be heavy for me .The gimbal is not rock solid stable at 50mm, but it is hundred times better than my classic efforts without it. A post prod image stabiliser locks it off perfectly. The secret is the Manfrotto 123 Rotule which allows me to take the gimbal on and off. Without the ability to angle the female socket, it is impossible to take the rig off the arm. (See attached pictures) PROS of rig Good weight distribution Bounce reduction & stable image for classic tracking shots Ability to do Don Juan with a gimbal Easy to un mount rig on a table CONS Rig height is high Heavy Gimbal consumes batteries very, very quickly Red Epic MX is at the higher end of the zhiyun crane 3s capacity so fragile. I wouldn't do any of those crazy camera moves you see on youtube with it. Cannot see how to easily do low or mid mode. Note: dangeling cables do affect the gimbal a lot. They made my gimbal nod as I walked. These gimbals don't offer cable / power management features for big cameras. This rig does not replace someone who is trained and knows what they are doing, but could inspire those looking for a personal, relatively low cost solution.
  9. Who has ever tried the Smartsystem gimbal? Andrea, the owner, is very competent and precise. I had problems with my old gimbal and I decided to replace it with Smartsystem because I had already tried their equipment. The result was wonderful. The gimbal was adapted to my 1.5" post. It's perfectly soft, smooth and centered, especially no there are mechanical games and it’s all nice solid! Its hinge opening allows a quick adjustment and the handle allows a firm grip without slipping. Smartsystem is recognized by products made in Italy and for the accuracy of their material. I think this is just the first purchase at home Smartsystem. What do you think about it?
  10. The Gimbal is in perfect condition With my broken heart I need to sell my XCS gimbal because doesn't fit in my actual Rig. Buyer Pays Shipping and Taxes by Paypal 5000€ - Lisbon, PORTUGAL

  12. We are selling one of our sets of Klassen wheels. Minimal use, in very good condition. They will control the DJI R2 or Movi gimbals. Wheels come with the Futaba transmitter... the corresponding receiver for your gimbal is not included but can be purchased online easily. In the last few months it had the internal hardware upgrade done by Klassen to the latest components (a $1,000 upgrade) which make the wheels super responsive, on the level of the DJI Master Wheels. $3400 is our asking price in USD, these wheels were $5K USD new. As a bonus, the wheels also come with a custom 6' cable we had made by Klassen that allows for the wheels to be powered from a 4-pin 12V XLR battery source. AC power adapter, custom fitted Nanuk case, Mitchell tie down (wheels can be mounted to standard Mitchell support systems).
  13. In efforts to try and post more on the forum rather than Facebook. I am new to steadicam but I do believe to have a basic understanding of balance and have worked with 3axis gimbals for years. I have two sleds currently in my possession that are exhibiting similar but slightly different issues for what I believe to be a misalignment in the gimbal or yoke. Let’s forget dynamic balance for the moment. If I am setting up for a static balance with a 2.5 second drop time and I should be able to set the Fore-Aft and Side to Side to sit level with the lens facing forward and the gimbal 90* to the right and I rotate the rig by 90* and let the rig come to a rest the horizon shouldn’t fall left or right when static balanced correct? My only concern with my setup is on the Zephyr I have a gold to V mount adapter That is offsetting the batter left a bit. my goldmount batteries get here Monday. Attached are links to my links to videos I made to show Tyson at Tiffen about the Aero 30. The first one I believe my dynamic balance was pretty off and in the second video I corrected it as much as I could. Would love to get everyone’s thoughts on this because I feel like I’m doing everything right but the equipment seems off. My lacking of experience makes me question myself to and my camera build. I had even more of an issue getting dynamic balance on the zephyr with the same camera package as in the video so I switched to a weight cage to eliminate any variables with the camera build. Thanks!
  14. Hey, lam Abhinav from India. I am planning to buy a smartphone gimbal and have few questions. 1. Does it support Samsung Note 9 and One plus 7 ? 2. Does it come with warranty ? 3. Where is service center in India? I hope for a quick reply and you clear my doubts. Thanks

  16. A 10 minute reel of shots I made with and without the Volt for Hulu’s “Dollface”. Most of the video is accompanied by descriptions of how I tune my Volt for different shots, along with why. This tool has fundamentally made my days at work better, allowing me to make bolder choices, with more precise results!
