Hello all! I've been having some interest in buying a Betz universal steadicam plate but wanted to hear what other ops have as their go-to camera plate for the typical builds (Alexa Mini, Red, Blackmagic and so on)? Primarily been using my PRO Arri/Pana plate on my DB2. Thank you all for any input/advice on this matter! Hope you all stay safe and may your face shields stay fog-less ha, Joe
Our shop is looking to get our first steadicam and based on our needs I think we are looking at the Aero 30 or Zephyr. We have three C300 Mark II Canons plus an Alexa Mini so relatively light camera packages. We have a series of Canon Prime lenses so we don't have a lens over three pounds. Looking to buy new and wondering if the Zephyr is worth the extra $5k? From reading other material on here it does appear the Zephyr is a better made product. However, it appears the Zephyr can only hold three more pounds than the Aero 30 holding up to 23 lbs as opposed to 20 lbs. We need a rig that 4-5 people on our staff will potentially use that can be a one-size fits all for beginners but at the same time be a quality product. The Aero 30 seems attractive because it can take a Canon Battery mount. Is the extra weight capability of the Zephyr a moot point considering the different types of batteries the two rigs could take? Based on our camera and lens package plus the number of people who could potentially use the rig, I'm wondering what Steadicam is best for us? I'd appreciate any information regarding the differences between the Aero 30 and the Zephyr. Thank you very much!
Hi guys, As many of you are probably waiting to get their hands on an Alexa mini, I just wanted to throw in some information about the cvolution working with the Alexa mini. It does communicate the same way, as it does with the Alexa Plus and offers the following features (beside the features, which the cvolution can do anyway): Wireless compatibility without camin in between Displays lens data, FPS, shutter angle and remaining record time on the hand unit Offers quick match focus scale set-up and pre-engraved marker rings Also the cforce mini motors can be connected directly to our pan-bar zoom and also used with the compact LCS system...so weight should not be a problem anymore... Sorry for this advertising, but hope some of you find this useful...
