Hey guys and gals,

 

 

So I'm doing a little research on sled depreciation, mainly for insurance purposes (but also out of curiosity). So i'm trying to find out what the price of a 3a gimbal was when it first came out. In fact if anyone knows of an old price list that has the whole 3a setup (vest, arm, sled) that would be helpful as well. Thanks

Hi Ken

The IIIA Gimbal sold for $3500 BACK IN 1989. Let me have your email address and I will send you a PDF copy of the 1989 IIIA price list. 1989 was the first year of the IIIA version Steadicam and the price was $40,000. The model III in 1988 was $38,500. I also have price lists as far back as 1981 for the Model II if anyone is interested.
