What kind of rig is this?

Recommended Posts

Are Actioncam considered any good? There products look very interesting and the Raptor system looks very cool and almost affordable. (Or I have converted the currency totally wrong)

Actioncam are fantastic rigs! I have the Raptor rig with a slightly upgraded sled. I love it. IMHO the arm is as smooth like all the other professional arms (PRO, G-50, G-70...), the vest is very comfortable, the sled modular. You should try the actioncam Nathaniel. It is a topnotch rig. And as your skills get better you´ll be able to upgrade here and there. You can change the springs to adjust the weight range...

Damn, I really want to now. I've read through several posts on them via the search tool. They seem like the perfect option for some one in my position. I was thinkng of the Zephyr but it has a few things that bother me so not super excited by it. I just wish I had checked out the Raptor when we were in Switzerland at the start of the year. I don't know if they have any representation here in Australia but I'll email them n find out.

When I bought it I had to make the same decision. But now, I would rather compare the build quality from the raptor with the archer then the Zephyr. I´m using it with the normal springs (not the heavy weight ones) and my average setup is around 12 kg. I don´t think they have a office in Australia, but you can easily change a cable running through the post yourself. And they have such a great service and are very responsive and friendly, so the distance should not be a problem.

Actioncam Rebel Pro owner here. Great modular system. My only complaint is that my Rebel Pro arm has no adjustment screws in the Vest-Arm Connector. Since their backmount vest has two sets of adjustments (fore-aft and side-to-side), it's not a problem. It only becomes a problem if you want to upgrade to a front mount vest, that only has fore-aft adjustments in the socket block.

 

Just my two cents. Apart from that glitch, it's a great system. Smooth ride on the arm. High load capacity. Very upgradable and customizable sled (my new Quattro Monitor Arm is actually on it's way in the mail right now!)
