  1. Good day! Just got my first sled, and i'm super happy with it! I do however have a bit of an odd problem (or maybe it isn't and i'm just a newbie ((most likely)) The guy i purchased it from has an older Canon C300, which i have used as a practice camera for a while. I wanted to put my own camera on the sled, but this is where my problems began. My camera is an A7IV, which i've weighed down with a v-mount battery and a practice cage. To get signal down to my monitor, i'm having to use a blackmagic micro 3G HDMI-SDI converter. Now if i connect directly to my monitor from the converter, the signal is fine nomatter the output resolution of the camera. However, when i try to go via the internal SDI in my sled, the signal will only work with 1080 interlaced, and even then, the signal is quite glitchy. The sled has three HD-SDI connectors, which to my knowledge should be able to output 1080 25P? I have tried to configure the blackmagic converter, but my choices are only Level A or Level B, none of which work. The sled is a Glidecam X-45 (it has been upgraded in several ways, but the internal wiring is still the same). The monitor is a 702 Touch. TLDR; My sleds internal SDI cables will only output a glitchy interlaced signal, despite being capable of progressive(?)
  2. Hey! I am currently using a Sachtler Cine HD Pro Sled with an 1.8 Post. I have a few questions: Is it possible to switch out the 1.8 Post with a 1.74 or Volt compatible Post? If yes, which accessories I need new? New Gimbal with Volt Something else? How to attach the volt box on the sled? which accessorie do I need? Service, Volt, new Post...it is just "cheaper" to sell the old Sled and buy a new one?
  3. Hello Guys, I am trying to build a long center post for my Sted. The main issue is to find the circular threaded connector male & female, like in the picture below. I am not necessarily looking for the Lemo, but the black circular connector. I have tried several manufacturer, but I can't find it. Is there anybody who got an idea ? Marc
  4. I'm looking for a post extension for my A30 arm for my zephyr. I know they make these for the heavier weight arms but I haven't seen anything for the Zephyr. Any guidance would be appreciated.
  5. Hello, I noticed a little play where the post is attached to the lower sled of my CP EFP. Does anybody know how the post is fixed and if this is problem wich i can fix by my self ? Are there maybe any drawings around ? Thanks in advance Holger
  6. Hi there. I was going through some old things and found this unused arm post adapter. It is meant to go into an older Master series arm, with the spiral thread, and ends in a 5/8" post that can slip into a Pro or XCS gimbal. I originally bought this for a Master series arm I owned but have since sold and upgraded to Pro/XCS. No use for this post anymore. It has never been used, anodizing still fully intact. Ordered from Tiffen a few years ago. According to Tiffen price list, this part costs $189 USD. I'm looking for $150 USD or make me an offer. It is brand new. Located in Toronto.

  9. FOR SALE: A Vinten Post Head (Swan), in good condition. Pan and tilt drag setting are fluid and silky smooth. Locks work well, as does the camera platform worm gear that allows you to tilt the camera platform fore and aft. Pan handle lock and ring also work well. Has wear and use marks, but everything is well taken care of and very clean. This nodal swing head weighs 20lbs, has a payload capacity of 50lbs, and is designed so that the center of gravity of the camera remains in the body of the camera. Performing small, smooth moves, even at the long end of zooms, is simple and repeatable. No need to fight the counter balance springs Drag is infinitely adjustable (through 8 levels) on both pan and tilt axes Like other swing heads, this can be under slung on jibs. or even rail dollies. DOES NOT come with a ball or Mitchell base. DOES NOT come with camera mounting screw(s). Has 4 hole bottom for mounting 4-hole bases, like 150mm/Mitchell...can also use Vinten quick mount bases, which come in a variety of styles. Also uses 3/8" camera plate screws...but make sure they're no shorter than 1" from tip to head...the camera mounting plate is thick...it's not like regular tripod plates...you can see in the pics above... Also comes with a copy of the original operations/maintenance manual, that covers the major aspects of the Post Head, including construction, operation, maintenance, parts etc... Ships in a well used Pelican 1550 with pluck foam. This is an incredibly well engineered, and well built tripod head. If you're looking for a nodal swing head, this is one you might want to consider. I'm actually kind of sad to see her go...but my jobs don't use big cameras anymore, and this Swan doesn't see any action anymore... :( $1850 OBO. SHIPS TO US. PAYPAL please. Buyer pays shipping.

  20. Been looking through some threads on post adaptors, and I've found some very useful information. I know Tiffen sells some post adaptors, but would they fit this configuration from IIIA to Actioncam sled? Also posting this because another option was brought up to me and I haven't seen it posted here- an arm post that is 19mm on top to fit with the Actioncam. Can anyone provide any insight to either of these? Thanks.
  21. Does anyone happen to know the measurements for the Tiffen Steadicam Merlin Arm post? What size would it fit?
  22. Is there a cheap even offbrand heavy duty Arm and Vest stabilization system for 20lbs and up? Anything at all less than thousands and thousands of dollars.
