The Rolls Royce of Steadicams.

I can only speak from my personal experience and the rigs that I have owned.

I had a Swiss Made Actioncam, a Tiffen Ultra2c and an Arri Artemis / Trinity prior to my current Pro rig and 
the Pro is by far the best I have ever owned. I really enjoy the simplicity of the design and the 'feel' of the precision engineering.
Of the above Pro has also shown to have by far the best support.

those trinity rigs look like they could be a rolls royce. so much technology though.

the smooth ride of the ergo gimbal, the colors of the electronics...id say that the ultimate 2hd is like the rolls royce ghost.

my sled is xcs chassis and steering, pro suspension and body, and a betz roof rack so im going with mine being a land cruiser. diesel.

brett.

It’s kind a wired comparison, but I am also the one who is sometimes using this  picturesque example with the cars (or guitars) when it comes to explaining the differences between things, to someone who isn’t from the industry. :) 

Rolls Royce is all about the back seats. It’s about the driven person in the back seats, not about the driver. :) 

Anyway, After 20+ years of operating and owning 4 rigs, I still believe it is about the “driver” not about the “car”. It’s about the player, not the instrument. ;)

I am just used to my Sachtler Artemis Cine or EFP or Arri Trinity. I never operated no one else's steadicam. This doesn’t mean that my steadi is better then someone else's. I feel more comfortable and confident with my rig, and I believe I am achieving better results this way.  

Cheers
