  1. Hi everyone! I always love perusing this site and reading about other ops journey and setups so I figured I’d finally give back a little and show my current set up. After years of being a gimbal op and hating how the ArmorMan 2 was on my body, as well as just the restriction of doorways and the absence of a good low-mode option, I finally pulled the trigger and got the SmartSystems Matrix sled with X1 arm…. And boy do I LOVE IT! I get the ergonomics and operability of a Steadicam with the roll control and smooth action of a gimbal. As well as being able to do some pretty crazy moves (with the execption of the trinity low to high jib mode in 1 shot - the tail gets in the way) + being able to switch to low mode in 15 seconds. :) Feel free to use this post to ask any questions of the setup or operation of it. I’m currently on a show that we are rocking the Venice + recorder + k35s + Preston … a 29lb camera package. With counter weights, the total sled comes in at 73lbs It’s a beast but with some workouts, smart operation, and taking care of my body, I’ve gotten exceptionally comfortable with it. We’re regularly doing 15-20 mins walk and talks + 100meter+ moves. It’s not for the faint of heart (or back) but neither is the Trinity or Omega. Happy operating and shooting!
  2. Hi all! I'm just selling the equipment of a friend of mine. I tested everything to see that all is working correctly and yes, is fully functional.

(shipping cost by the buyer) I prefer to sell it in the EU, the equip is in Barcelona. For a fastest answer, contact me in this mail: hola@aos.camera What doesn't comes in the offer is the stand, camera and weigh that you'll see in the next pictures: . IMG_6659.mov
  3. Hello everyone, Hope you're safe and well. Ever since I upgraded to the M-1 rig, I haven't been using this one. Originally planned to keep it as a backup kit but it's been sitting around for quite some time now. I'm the first and only owner of this rig; bought new from Tiffen in February 2015. Below is what's included in this sale: - Steadicam Archer 2 sled - Dovetail plate with two screws - Steadicam G50X arm - Rain cover + bag for the arm - 1x 12V Lemo to XLR 4-pin cable - 1x Transvideo Lemo power cable (5-pin to 8pin) - 1x 24V Lemo to Fischer, Alexa power cable - 1x 24V Lemo to Fischer, Alexa Mini/Amira power cable - Low mode bracket - Docking Bracket - Thermodyne hard case for sled and arm - No monitor is included The rig has some normal wear and tear, but is fully functional. You only need a monitor and a vest to have a fully functioning kit. I taped two small pieces of tape on the top stage to keep the dovetail firm in its position. (This was a known issue for these sleds) I'm asking for 13,500 US dollars for everything plus shipping. Item is located in Beirut, Lebanon. Payment via International wire transfer. If you're interested, please send me an email at the following address: contact@christopherkechichian.com Have a good day. Best, Christopher

  8. Hi, Newbie here, I'm currently looking for an arm right now and I've been doing a bit of research. Does anyone have any experience with the following arms? - FlowCine XArm - NB Stabiliser Arm - SmartSystem Arm X1 - AVDONIN A5 Arm Quite frankly I'm really looking towards the traditional G70(x) arm but they're not always available in the market, like hot singles in my area.. I'm willing to give these new arms in the market a try as beginner arms and eventually have them as back up arm. They're just super far from where I live and also no demos these days (Covid). The data is only as good as it's presented on their website and I can only find really limited resources and testimonials. Please let me know if anyone has any opinions about those arms. Thanks! (Leaning towards SmartSystem and NB)

  13. Hi everyone, I'd like to buy my first steadicam, and I was thinking about the Archer 2 steadicam set with g-50 arm, but then I found the Matrix One Ultra bundle from Smartsystem. Does anybody have any experience with the Smartsystem Matrix One bundles? Is it comparable with other professional brands (gpi pro, tiffen etc)? I prefer using it as a normal Steadicam. Ronin 2 compatibility is something like a bonus only. Did somebody try it with the Ronin 2 on it?
  14. ,Hi everyone, I am currently on a shooting a series that is 55 days long, I am operating as A cam and Steadicam cam and we are around 3 weeks in and they keep using the steadicam as a tripod quite often since it takes around 15 minutes to switch from steadicam to tripod and it's starting to affect my back. Has anyone had an experience like this before and how did you handle it. Cheers Omar

  16. Hey Everyone, I’m looking into getting a real Steadicam kit for Narrative Work. I currently work mostly as an AC. I also do a decent Camera/Movi/Ronin Operator & Tech for commercials. I have a Zephyr and at the moment that I have been practicing and shooting whatever I get the opportunity to do with that. I plan to buy a Sled, Arm & Vest I can fly real narrative camera packages in the near future. Looking for recommendations from more experienced operators to tell me what they would choose to buy. Sled - Arm & Vest 1. If budget was of no concern? 2. What older used kit they would look for if one was available? Thanks in advance for any help or time you have spent reading/posting here.
  17. 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!
  18. I am curious to hear opinions on the Steadicam Archer - (not the Archer 2) I am looking to purchase my first serious rig and I am trying to determine if this one would be a good investment. It comes with the G50X arm and LX vest. Modifications would include HD wiring and 12/24v selector. My questions are: -is this rig still 'current' enough to start a career as a steadicam op with (in NYC)? -are there any known drawbacks or cons to the Archer rig? Or any notable pros or benefits? -any other considerations or thoughts on this rig in general? Any thoughts or info would be greatly appreciated. I am limited in what I can afford at this point, but I want to make sure I am investing in something that will allow me to create some momentum for myself, and that wont be a hinderance due to being old or outdated. Thank you in advance!
