  1. Hello fellow Steadipeople! I once saw that Chris Fawcett has a longer plate for his Archer2 and asked him where he got it. Turns out he had it made by a local machinist. Then I saw that Peter Abrahm made the "Zalex Long Plate" and was amazed to find what I need. Unfortunately it's not meant for my dwarf top stage. (also an Archer2) Even though there is a way to use it on my stage I wanted a solution that really fits. So I decided to remember my classes on mechanical design and do one myself. Now my questions to you are: Does anybody else want something like this? Do you have suggestions o
  2. 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 w
  3. Hi guys and gals, Selling my Archer2 SE system. It's the only Archer with factory-added Lemo3 power ports at the top stage, factory-deleted docking ring with Hill dock, and small custom sled-only case. This is the most compact, lightest weight, and most affordable VOLT-compatible rig available. SE sled with remote control stage motors, super-clean G50x arm, and lightly modified LX vest. Offered with a cache of cables, a bunch of brackets & backups, plus cases for the whole lot. Ready to go on a shoot today. One fastidious owner, check out the 65+ detail images on dropbox:
  4. Hello, I have a Steadicam archer 2 with the g-50x arm and I would like to know if someone wit this same equipment has used it with the Alexa LF. Also, does anyone have experience powering the Alexa with the 24 volt sled? Thank you Julio

    Is there anyone out there interested in selling their Archer2 sled? Would love to take it off your hands!
  7. I haven't used this rig since I upgraded last year, but its served me well over the last couple of years. I've upgraded the rig to have two HD lines, plus 2pin lemo and d-tap power at the base of the sled. It's a fantastic light weight rig that will fly a DLSR to an Alexa, this would be an awesome package for someone starting out or looking for a medium weight rig. Contact me on timotawalsh@gmail.com for prices, I would prefer to sell the kit as a whole but will take offers for individual items. Kit located in Sydney, Australia, buyer pays shipping.

  8. I'm selling my Steadicam Archer 1 kit (I bought it off James Davies via this forum a little under two years ago). I’ve been using this rig for two years now, its handled everything from c300’s to Alexa builds and I’ve really loved it - I am selling due to upgrading to a bigger rig. The rig is based in London. This is a really well looked after setup with many modifications for HD use. The arm has had an X-upgrade with Tiffen USA and works beautifully. You won’t need to service or invest any extra money in to this kit for some time. Ready to go with many accessories. This is a f
  9. Hey there, Since I didn't want to crash the Ultra 2 centering party thread, I thought I'd start my own and hope people can help me over here as well. I have the Archer 1 which has for some reason decided it wants to go off level both in tilt and in roll after I static balance and then rotate through 90, 180 and 270 degrees. Since there are no adjusting screws on the yoke like on the Archer 2 or U2 gimbal, the UK factory is too far away for a quick fixing and my steadicam repair guy's workshop is currently closed, I'm a bit clueless as to what I could do until my next shoot tomorrow ev
  10. Hello guys! I am selling my beloved Zephyr. I'm a cinematographer based in Berlin, Germany. I tried to learn the craft for one year but realized that I just don't have the time and dedication that it takes. So I had to be honest with myself, I'm letting my rig go to a person who can make more use of it. When I bought it, it was one year old and had little use (another cinematographer:). I used it for one year, only for (ocasional:S) practising and one short film project. The HD-monitor, the V-Mount Battery and charger, the Low Mode Bracket and the Custom Gimbal Grip I bought new myself and the
  11. Hey everyone, It's been 6 months that I bought my steadicam zephyr and very happy with it. I got all the accessories needed to fly heavy cameras but I don't want to stress the system beyond it's capacity (the rig is still new!). So I'm searching for a used big rig, in a good condition and a reasonable price. I'm willing to pay some extra cash on top of the trade as well. Let me know if anyone has something for sale. Thx Chris
  12. Hey all! After a few years testing the water of operating with a 'learner rig' I have reached the point where it's time to dive in and do things properly, and invest in a 'proper' rig. The last couple of jobs I've been on have been a bit too much for my current gear so in order to keep progressing I need to move on up. I have the opportunity of acquiring second hand either an Archer2 or a Clipper2 for the same price and would love some advice from you guys on which would be the better option from your experience relating to operating, flexibility, performance, reliability, etc etc! As
  13. This is a complete system including sled, arm, and vest. It’s almost identical to the current package sold by Tiffen/Steadicam ($24,990.00). http://www.tiffen.com/videoarcher.html I’d still say (after 5 years of owning this system) that it offers the best capabilities for the price. You’ll be able to fly just about everything you’ll encounter for the better part of your career (Red, Alexa, some 35mm setups too), and it all fits in one case for getting around easily and flying as well. This system has seen plenty of use, but I have always taken EXTREMELY good care of it. I’ve m
  14. Hi guys! I'm looking for a Steadicam Archer 2. Primarily just looking for the sled and arm, but if you have a package it could be interesting. Best, Peder Torp Mathisen
  16. Hey everyone, My first time posting in the forum. Looking for any second hand Archer Steadicam Rigs to be used here for live TV in Australia. If you, or you know anyone looking to sell please reply. I am also heading to LA in December so if anyone in the States are looking to sell, would be great to meet up and test a rig.
  17. Hey everyone, I'll introduce myself, my name is Christopher Kechichian from Lebanon, 3rd year undergraduate student in Audio Visual. I've been operating for 3 years now on lightweight rigs and looking to upgrade my cart. I'm tight on budget that's why I'm looking for a good used system. I need a complete Steadicam Archer 2 system (vest-arm-sled). Please let me know if anyone has one of sale and this is my email : gckproduction@gmail.com Many Thanks :)
  18. Looking for a complete used Steadycam Archer kit! Would be great to find someone! Please post or Email: burz@n.zgs.de Best Andreas
  19. Hi all I'm selling this for a friend, he is always filming in the jungle or up a mountain at the mo so never about. I have the kit so can answer most questions. Here is what it consists of.... 'Looking to sell my Steadicam Archer. This is a versatile rig that offers a big step up from the Flyer and Zephyr. It will handle Epic, Scarlet, (reasonable) RED and Alexa builds, and you're getting a G-50 arm which is an utter joy to operate. Bought the rig about is four years ago and as a mainly film wildlife doesn't get enough use by me. It is in very condition and ready to be put to w
  20. I'm looking for complete Zephyr HD Steadicam kit. Im also interested in other Steadicams, as long they can carry as much weight as Zephyr or more (like Archer etc. but have to set in same price range as used Zephyr). I live in Finland, and i hope your offer includes shipping. Sami Harjunen
