M1 volt, can it be used on another Steadicam brand!

Recommended Posts

The Volt can be used on M1, M2, Archer, Shadow, GPI Pro, and Betz RIG. What off-brand are you looking at? If it's a 1.5" or 2" post diameter, the gimbal should fit, but mounting the control box might be a problem for you.

FYI, if you buy an M1 or M2 gimbal, it's easy to modify it for the post diameter of 1.75 inch or less (1.58, 1.50...).

If it's a different gimbal to be modified for the Volt, many (expensive) parts have to be modified to fit the Volt bits to the gimbal. It's not just fitting to a different diameter post.

Slight but needed correction, as Jerry says "1.75 inch or less " for post sizes. There is currently no way to put a Volt onto a 2" post (fingers crossed that this will change some day).

My mistake!
