  1. Hey folks! I just picked up a Steadicam Master sled / vest / arm package and I'm already seeing / feeling a lot of the limitations to the sled itself. I don't like the lack of HD, the monitor mount is permanently loose, and the proprietary batteries will probably prove to be a headache in the future as well. So I'm looking into modifying the sled. Cramped Attic quoted me about $2500 for the battery and HDSDI upgrades, and recommended that I handle the monitor bracket locally. However, I'd like to shop around so I fully know my options. I know Mk V has Master sled upgrades, and I'm looking into that. However, they're in the UK, and I'd like to avoid incurring those kinds of shipping fees. I wanted to tap the community and see if anyone else knew places (preferably local to NYC, but not necessarily) where I could get mods done on my Master Sled. Any input and leads would be greatly appreciated!
  2. Hi All, So I just had my gimbal serviced. When I got it back, I went to balance it, and it is very out of balance, I can static balance it fine. But when spun 180 degrees, it tilts back quite severely. I chased it around for about an hour (rebalancing to where it would land). Same thing every time. Does anyone know how I can balance this myself? Please say it's easy. Any help, and the sooner the better, would be GREATLY appreciated, as I obviously need this for work. Thank you in advance.
  3. I am currently starting a show with the DXL2. I have a Master Series, and am having trouble lining up the camera plate to the body. The only way I was able to mount it was with the bridge plate (pic bellow). While the sled flies well, it would be GREAT to be able to ditch the BP and go right to the camera. As it's making my sled quite long. Any advice as too where I could get a camera plate that would fit a Master (obviously different than the original plate) would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  4. Used Vest, just like all Master Series vest are now it comes with minor cosmetic wears and blemishes, small tear on the left waist. It was always comfortable and great to start with or have as a back up vest. DM me for pricing!
  5. I have an old Master Series Cinema sled that took a fall a while ago and has been just sitting in my closet. The only damage appears to be the extended element on the top stage and the old CRT monitor. All of the electronics still appear to be functional and the top stage itself still solid. The gimbal was serviced right before the accident and is still smooth as butter. I also have 9 PAG batteries and 2 chargers. Most likely need to be re-celled. As well as a PAG to AB Mount adapter battery plate. Make me an offer! Located in Los Angeles and prefer a local purchase, but willing to ship if buyer pays.
  6. Master Arm and Vest for sale. $8,000. The arm was serviced at Tiffen in February of 2016. Always taken care of, always bagged. This is a heavy lift arm. I have flown larger builds with no issues at all. The arm is amazingly sooth, and very easy to tune. I'm only selling it as I have purchased a new arm. The Master Vest is also well taken care of, and in great condition. very comfortable, and easily adjustable. The one bottom knob on the socket block is mising one side of the wing nut (photo attached). But it doesn't effect performance at all. Again, I am only selling it as I have bought a new vest. Both come in the case shown in the photos. This is a great setup, and has done me well on several features and television shows. I hope it goes to a good home. $8,000. for both with case. Buyer pays shipping. contact: w.j.heinemann@gmail.com
  7. Hi there. I was going through some old things and found this unused arm post adapter. It is meant to go into an older Master series arm, with the spiral thread, and ends in a 5/8" post that can slip into a Pro or XCS gimbal. I originally bought this for a Master series arm I owned but have since sold and upgraded to Pro/XCS. No use for this post anymore. It has never been used, anodizing still fully intact. Ordered from Tiffen a few years ago. According to Tiffen price list, this part costs $189 USD. I'm looking for $150 USD or make me an offer. It is brand new. Located in Toronto.
  8. The back up is for sale: Master Series Vest with brown leather Changed 2 Ratchet straps just before taking the pictures and the socket block is 1 year old only. It has the quick release system. It's been well used and well washed! Add some vintage look to your Instagram feed with this vest. I will use the money to buy a better phone to take better pictures of my gear when I wanna sell it. Looking for 1750 USD OBO Buyer pays shipping. Located in Montreal, Canada. Cheers, Benoît

  12. Hey Everyone, Parting with my Master Series Sled. Asking $7,700 for everything. -12v/24v Toggle Upgrade - HD/SDI (1 HD line, 1 SD Line) Down the Post Upgrade - Marshall 7" HD Monitor (V-LCD84SB-AFHD) - Custom 15mm Telescoping Monitor Bracket - Master Series Dovetail Plate - Jerry HillDock -3x 1.580 Hill Docking Collars - American Grip Steadicam Stand - Anton Bauer Interactive 2000 Quadcharger - 4x Hytron 140 Anton Bauer Batteries - 45lb Steel Weight Plate
  13. Hi chaps, My Ultra 1 is up for sale. I'll be sad to see this one go - it has been my one and only rig for two years, and has never let me down. As you might expect there are some minor cosmetic marks in places like the arm covers or the vest's fabrics, but functionally everything is rock solid and flies smooth as butter. 24V or 12V power comes from V-Locks (not included), which means you can power any camera from the top-stage (cables for Alexa or XLR4 included, amongst others), and the HD-SDI cable I slipped and secured down the post in the beginning has never failed. I'm throwing in a venerable Transvideo Rainbow (SD) monitor, but you'll certainly want to make use of that HD cable at some point! The tilt-stage (un-motorised) and four-stage post are frequently useful features which I'll miss in my next sled, and the tool-free Master/Ultra arm will be difficult to top, honestly. So to sum up, the package INCLUDES: Ultra 1 Cine Sled (HD/V-LOCK/24V/Four-stage Post/Tilt Stage) Ultra 1 Arm (inc. 6" and 12" posts) Ultra 1 Vest Hill Dock Transvideo SD Monitor, Mounting Bracket Dovetail Plate, Power Cables, Video Cables etc. ASKING PRICE £12,000 (no VAT charged) EU delivery at buyer's expense, local pick-up in West London more than welcome. Contact me at emilio dot film at gmail dot com anytime if you'd like to make an offer, simply to have a look at the rig, or just for a chat. All the best, Emilio

  15. Hi I have a question for anyone who owns/used to own the master series arm. How were they adjusted for different weights/float points? http://www.steadicam-ops.com/docs/steadicam_resource_manual.pdf This manual claims there was a single adjustment knob for the arm http://www.google.co.uk/patents/US5435515 This is the patent filed for the mechanics of what I believe is the Master series arm, though it's never explicitly stated so feel free to correct me on that. Anyway in the patent there are a couple of ways described to adjust the lifting power and 'Iso-Elasticity'*. One is to have separate vertical and lateral controls for the cable terminations, the other is to have a single control which moves the termination diagonally downwards instead of straight down. There's also a third method described which is a simple vertical adjustment of the cable but I'm assuming this wouldn't be used since it's the crudest and simplest of all three. I'm just curious which of these methods actually made it into the final design Thanks Robert
  16. UK PRICE £300 (for both) US PRICE 470$ One upper and lower docking collar that I had in my master kit but that I've never used because I use a Jerry Hill Bracket which needs a different style of collars. These collars are for the original docking bracket used with Master, Ultra 1 and Ultra 2 sleds. In the UK they sell new for £250 (VAT included) each, about 390$, please check link below: http://cvp.com/index.php?t=product%2Fsteadicam_252-7660 I want to sell them both as a package for £300 (470$) + postage. The upper collar has been used, it has a few scratch marks but works perfectly otherwise. The lower collar looks like new and it doesn't seem to have been used. These can serve as back up for any operator owning and using the original docking brackets used with the sleds I mentioned. If you are interested please contact me at ltgfilm(at)gmail.com
  17. Hello, How difficult/ what is the process for re-wiring a Master series sled to support HDSDI? Maybe even swap out the 4 pin HiROSE to be all 2 pin LEMOs and throw on another Aton plate to the front of the K section too. I plan on keeping this sled for a few years so upgrading it is not a option, just wanted to try and bring it up-to-date. It all seams like a challenge over my head, is there anyone to be recommended for this in the LA area? Trying to know what i am getting into before I make the first step. Thanks.
  18. Hi! I'm firstly looking for a master vest, but also interested in ultra 1 vest. Send me a PM if you want to give a great vest a new home. Peder
  19. Having a clear out and thought i'd see if anyone wanted this. Never ended up using it personally, it was always a spare. Not been used in a while but stored safely. Due to it's age i can't guarantee it's 100% functional but worst case scenario it might be useful for spares. The only cable it comes with is a 4 pin lemo. Coming from the UK I'm guessing it's PAL but does anyone know if these were PAL/NTSC switchable? £200 plus postage. Peace & Doves ;)

  22. 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
  23. Hi, I'd like to hear people's thoughts and experiences working with a Master (Broadcast) sled, and if you guys think it's 'still got it' compared to modern sleds? I'm still looking at upgrade options and have been considering a used Archer2 with G50x arm, but a Master with upgraded G70 is available for a similar price (both with LX vests). The sled has been upgraded with HD-SDI already so should be ready to fly modern cameras. I'm just a little concerned about the apparent lack of flexibility of the monitor and battery mounts and the short post? The G70 arm would allow me to upgrade to a modern 'big rig' sled in the future but just concerned that the old sled design may have some compromises compared to a modern one while I'm working with it? I've not yet had a look and test of either of them but doing some background research at the moment ;) Cheers guys will get there in the end! rups
  24. Steadicam Master vest leather Vest travel in soft cases More Photos http://www.ipernity.com/doc/341565/23824253/in/album/459511 Price 1800€ OBO Open to offers. Preferable European Union
  25. So its been good time now, and im ready to move up to the big rigs. Im flying loaded Alexa, EPIC, 45lb+ set ups weekly, but its a cheap knock off and is not going to cut it any longer. It's time to move up. What would anyone recommend for my first professional sled (with $$$ of course being the #1 factor here). Looking for something with dual AB mounts, 24v, solid LEMO taps for my Bartech and accessories. I'm looking to get a master series arm, and thereby also looking at the master sled (good pricing) but I'm worried it's not modular enough for future upgrades. Or would it be more beneficial to just get one and sell it later one down the road? Thank you.
