I'm a one-man run'n'gun sorta guy; I've worked with my mirrorless out of a Ronin-M that all fits in a backpack for years. Naturally, electronics and motors being what they are, the gimbal has acted up one too many times at critical moments, making the relatively foolproof mechanics of a Steadicam rig start seeming attractive. The immediate gear-bloat makes me uneasy though. All of a sudden, flying a mirrorless on a steadicam seems like a waste, I'm going to need more batteries, look into a FIZ unit... I know they offer "backpacks" for steadicams, but I could probably fit myself in one of those they're so huge. And then, a couple thousand dollars into a rig that is merely the first rung of an entire field, one that I'm not sure I want to sacrifice my knees for. Who is the Aero-15 for? Should I look into a used Aero-30/Zephyr instead? Or just stay away from it entirely?
Hello every one, some time ago, I went crazy about what to buy for my first rig and after I started digging, I found there are hundreds of options and possible combinations to build from the cheapest rig to the most professional that can be found. I don't wanna bore you so i'll cut to the point. I made a chart with all the information about brands and prices I could find for different sleds, arms, vests, wireless focus systems, wireless video systems, monitors and batteries. This chart is not complete, as there are always new gadgets out there, but I believe it will help you get an idea, of what you could buy, or at least give you a glimpse of what are the options. I originally did this only for my self, but I thought it would be nice to share it with such a good community. I also made this document editable, so please feel free to add anything or correct it if needed. Have fun! :) https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxwiMldAo7EhZUZfMmtTMkdHRDA/view?usp=sharing
