Klassen Flex vest for sale
Robin Smith posted a topic in Steadicam Marketplace - For SaleI am selling my Klassen Flex vest. It has a 2" drop in the arm that is set up for goofy operating. It is the 5th one made that was purchased in November of 2012. It has only been used on one 25 day shoot. It will fit someone about 190lb(86kg) "right out of the box", but Walter Klassen is very good about retrofitting vests for changing body sizes. Original purchase price was $5000 USD. Selling for $3900 USD

Switching from Goofy to Regular
NIcolas Gril posted a topic in OperatingHello people, how are you?? I was curious to know if anyone has switched from goofy to regular o viceversa...When I pictured myself operating steadicam, before owning one, I would always see myself operating goofy...specially because I thought I would have more control with my right hand, since Im right handed and footed. So when I did my workshop and started operating (and then got my own rig) I have always operated goofy...And it makes sense to have the camera on my right... If I use a skateboard or similar, I do it with my right foot in front BUT, during this 2020 quarentine, I have been bored and I took the time to practice a lot of things I dont normally practice...I would try really different drop-times, even neutral, and stuff like that...So, I also tried operating regular...At first it was a big WTF! Some basic stuff felt extremely weird, like un/docking, attaching the arm, etc...but there were 2 things that were really different and felt freaky: having the camera on my left and operating with my left hand....After some time practicing, I got used to everything pretty fast: docking, undocking, attaching the arm and even my left hand feels more precise with my sled (I still feel like when I have to whip pan or make a big tilt, for example, I Ioose precision, but im confident I can work that out)...the only thing still bothering me a little bit is having the camera on my left... But all the other things feel like regular is the correct side for me: walking feels MUCH better, positioning the arm with my right feels more SOLID, starts and lock off also look better and more solid... Also, when operating goofy I sometimes feel the need to "control" my right hand (on the sled) because I realize I am puting more grip than I should... Saldy I dont have a camera now to actually SEE if it looks better or not...this is all just FEELING. I will have my camera back in a couple of days So I guess my question is: has anyone switched and why? How does it work for you? I feel that everything is telling me to go regular but having operated so much time with the camera on my right also plays a big part in not being convinced yet... Ill appreciate any input! TIA! Nico.

I'm selling a Daniel Sauvé Design back-mounted vest. Very universal, will accommodate many sizes thanks to a large assortment of extra padding, along with an air bladder. I'm 1m80 tall and I weigh 83 kg, but this vest has never failed to fit other people in many workshops and trainings. I routinely use it both in goofy and regular and the carbon arm swaps in a jiffy. Very minor cosmetic signs of use I provide the original large DSD soft case, along with leather soft bags for the carbon arm and the back plate. Extra screws, latches and spare parts included. If you happen to be in the Paris (France) area, you can test it to your heart's content. 3000 euros, shipping not included. Paypal welcome. Please contact me at email@example.com
