Hi, so right now I am "flying" with the following:
-Blackmagic Production Camera 4K
-Atomos Samurai Blade w/ 2 Sony NP-F550 Battery
-Sigma 18-35 f1.8 Canon Lens
-Glidecam HD4000 (used)
-Glidecam Smooth Shooter arm and vest (used)
Recently, someone posted in my local area a used Steadicam Pilot $1200CAD and other one Steadicam Scout SD $2000CAD. I eventually want to fly with a Red Scarlet-W with one of the choices but I also want to use it with the camera and lens that I have right now. But what I don't understand is the weight limit for the Arm. When the specification says 10lbs limit, does it mean camera weight or do I measure the weight of the camera and the sled also and be 10lbs in total?
So for now with the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K, lens and monitor and also for the future Red Scarlet-W which one is better suited for operating or flying, Steadicam Pilot or Steadicam Scout? Or do you have recommendations?
Sorry for the question as it might seem really newbie-ish. I live in Toronto and am waiting for workshop to attend, so that is one thing for me to look forward to
Thank you for helping, commenting, recommending!
