I am an operator in Memphis, TN. I've been asked to do Steadi enough times that I'm looking into taking the class.
Before investing in my own rig, I have access to an Archer 2 sled with G50-X arm. I know the accessories and add-ons are vast, but my basic question is: will that combo work for most modern camera/lens set-ups?
I also understand there is not a single yes/no answer, so I'm looking for a general yes/no. Most of the work I do now is with Alexa Minis and small zooms anyway, but sometimes we use the Varicam and some bigger glass and I'd like to hear from people that know this combo.
The bottom line is: if I drop the cash on the class, will the setup I have access to be useful for 85% or more applications; i.e. will I be able to rent this setup and work without making the full investment into my own gear right away?
Thanks for your time.
Also, I posted this in the newbies section earlier, but I'm not sure that's correct now, so please forgive me for cross-posting if that's agains the rules.
