  2. Hi It may be a topic that has been asked before, but I hope to get an answer here anyway. I have been working as a film photographer for 10+ years and have now decided to start my next chapter up, going into the Steadicam world. I have used Steadicam very limited before, but have an idea about it. I have the opportunity to attend the Gold workshop this summer, which I will do. But I would also like to go out and invest in my own equipment. My question then is whether Steadicam Zephyr is a place to start, or whether it will limit me so much from the start that it's better to wait un
  3. Hi everyone ! I want to get my first stuff ans search for zephyr, aero-30, flyer or something acceptable for a newbie like me :) thanks ! (PS: I live in Paris )
  4. 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
  5. Hello Friends! Recently purchased a Zephyr and it came pretty bare. Looking to see if anyone is trying to get rid of their accessories before I result to buying things new. I have everything that it comes with off B&H plus a stand. Looking for: Small dovetail AB plate for second battery plate. Low mode bracket. Gold mount charger. Gold mount batteries. Power cables for Alexa Mini, RED, and other cables you think I will find useful. Since i'm a newbie, anything else you think I may need I am open to advice! Mainly flying Alexa Minis and REDs.
  6. Where would be a good place to get a used zephyr? also, can the volt system work with it?
  7. In efforts to try and post more on the forum rather than Facebook. I am new to steadicam but I do believe to have a basic understanding of balance and have worked with 3axis gimbals for years. I have two sleds currently in my possession that are exhibiting similar but slightly different issues for what I believe to be a misalignment in the gimbal or yoke. Let’s forget dynamic balance for the moment. If I am setting up for a static balance with a 2.5 second drop time and I should be able to set the Fore-Aft and Side to Side to sit level with the lens facing forward and the

  9. I'm looking for a post extension for my A30 arm for my zephyr. I know they make these for the heavier weight arms but I haven't seen anything for the Zephyr. Any guidance would be appreciated.
  10. I am currently a DP and editor looking to get my first steadicam package so I can start learning and practicing the craft. I am not a huge fan of gimbal shots (most look robotic to me) and would love to use it on personal projects. Initially, I just want to use it on personal projects with my friends, but after a while, I would love to break into the workforce. What is the likelyhood of me getting hired with the zephyr kit? Will I need to rent for most projects? Will people pass on me? Does it make sense to save up alittle more and get a used shadow? Just trying to make a solid investment an

  17. Hello folks, I am going to be flying a Sony Venice for a project coming up and I was wondering if anyone has ever flown that camera and if there is anything I should be aware of? As far as I know it will be with cinema glass, mb, ff, and that's about it. I will be using a Zephyr, any concerns about the payload? Thanks in advance.
  18. Hey folks, I've never been able to achieve proper dynamic balance with my sled before (Zephyr). I've operated a fellow op's rig (Shadow) and achieved DB in less about 3-4minutes. So as far as I can tell it might be a problem with my kit. Does my gimbal need to be centred? If so, does anyone have instructions on how to do this? I've noticed that my Zephyr gimbal has some play in it and wondering if this is a culprit... 1. As I shift the yoke side to side I can feel there is about 1mm of play there. 2. As I push the handle in to out there is about 2mm of play here.
  19. I would like to buy a full Zephyr steadicam kit ! Please feel free to contact me ! Simon
  20. Hi people, Just a quick question. The Zephyr says it can hold a max payload weight of 23Ibs (10.4 kg). My question is, does this weight include the weight of the sled its self or is this only the additional camera and batteries that you add to it. Just want to make sure I don't over weight my rig. Thanks for any help.
  21. Hello, We are close to buying our first Steadicam for your shop. Going to be a Zephyr and mostly flying a C300 with Canon CN E Prime Lenses but may use an Alexa Mini too. The consensus seems to be Gold Mount batteries over V-Mount. What type of Gold Mount battery is the best for battery life? Want to make sure we get efficient batteries but at the same time not batteries that weigh a ton either. Also curious about the various wireless follow focus and teradek systems. Seems to be quite a broad price range? I know some operators like to make sure their kit is equipped with a prompte
  22. 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

  25. Hey all, I've been operating for almost 8 months now and this is my first post here. I'm tasked with flying the Arriflex SR3 on my Zephyr and I know I have to get some attachments to be able to do that. From my understanding I need a second battery plate with the ability to switch between serial and parallel in addition to cable adapters for the camera. However, when I searched Tiffen for any official 2nd plate for Zephyr I couldn't find any. I've been scouring the forums to find anything of use and I've found some stating that the Zephyr is able to fly 24V with some attachments, si
