Hi, I recently just made a custom mount for my Steadicam Scout rig to make it looks more like a professional rig. I designed a simple bracket and I found a CNC machine shop to mill the parts for me. But they usually build parts in a reasonable quantity. So I built 10 of them. The bracket for to clamp a pair of 15mm rods on the Steadicam pole is finished and worked flawlessly. I'm planning to design a monitor yoke too. But it is not quite economical to build 10 sets of them while I only need one. The benefit of this modifcation is that the monitor position are now more flexible and independent of the battery position like the Zephyr. Not only that you can adjust the height of the monitor too. Also it is now possible to adjust the moment of inertia of the rig. So I'm looking for people with a Pilot rig or Scout rig to see if anyone would be interested in this modification. I'm not looking to earn any money I just want some people to share the production cost :D Each set should include: 1.)15mm bracket pole clamp 2.)Adjustable monitor yoke for Marshall/Steadicam 7" HD Monitor. 3.)A pair of 15mm rods And I believe the cost for each set + Shipping should be under USD$150. Please tell me if any of the Pilot and Scout owners are interested in this. If enough people are interested then I will design the monitor yoke and build it. There will be around 8 sets available because I will be building 10 sets and I will keep one set for spare. The picture above showing the modification. I don't have a monitor yoke yet so I used some 15mm bracket and a ball head to mount the monitor. I didn't want to take the picture in the toilet. But it is the only place here with a bright background lol.
I am selling my Steadicam Scout. I am the original owner who had a great experience using this machine, but in the past year I find myself moving on to other areas of production, and I would like this well built rig to find a good home. All of the components are in very good condition, with only a couple of minor scratches. Designed to fly camera packages from 5 - 18 pounds. Price: $5,500.00 OBO Thanks for your interest, David
We are offering our Steadicam Scout. A great system, and this one was only used about six times. We purchased it about two years ago, and only very light wear can be seen on a few edges of the arm and vest. We usually used a different monitor, so this one is in new condition, with the plastic cover still in tact. We are missing the mounting screw for the monitor, but if it's a must have, we can order one for you. The same package retails for $6,235. We are only asking $5,135. Please contact us with any questions or offers.
