Here’s a great Starter Rig or project for someone to tackle. My reliable old backup rig, which I bought from Denis Moran, in 2005.
I had been considering getting the HD-SDI upgrade from Hugo at Steadyrig for it and turning it into a running rig but have since abandoned that idea (though I would totally recommend that whoever does end up with this rig, talk to Hugo about his upgrades).
Everything works and the rig still flies very nicely.
GPI PRO I Post, Electronics & Battery system
CP IIIA Top Stage w/ 2 camera plates
CP IIIA Gimbal (w/ 2 PRO wrap grips: LG & SM)
Bartech BFD receiver mount.
8 Chocolate Bar Batteries, 4 were re-celled just over a year ago (I can have the rest done for $80 apiece, if you want) plus I have enough parts to make 1 more battery.
2 Aspen Chargers.
I’m also including an Anton Bauer Gold Mount Battery plate w/ PRO battery connector that I made for the sled (PRO connector can be removed and replaced with a 4-pin XLR, for plate use off the sled)… Super handy, even has two P-Tap connectors, great for powering an LCD monitor, for example.
Low mode/Practice cage (not pictured)
An assortment of Camera Power cables (Arri, Panavision, 12V XLR…)
2 focus rods
Marrell Green-screen monitor… bright and sharp!
The Batteries and chargers have a custom Calzone Case, everything else fits in a Pelican 1650.
CP Model II Steadicam Arm… an old arm but one that functions totally smoothly and silently and has a massive payload capacity. Seriously, I have no idea what the max capacity on the arm is but it’s got to be up there. I just shot some test video of me booming the rig with a maxed out Amira package and I can tell you with that payload the springs were only loaded to about 50%. Can't seem to post a link to the video here, so contact me if you'd like to see it.
2 Arm posts (6”, 12”) & 1 clamp
OR BOTH: $9,000
Kit is in LA.
