Need a rig under 2k.
Posted 26 January 2010 - 01:22 AM
This type of discussion has bee brought up at several occasions, and I apologize... but I am struggling (investment advice). Over the past year I have been operating a glidecam x10 rig, and I need to upgrade. I am at a point where I have been steady work and most definitely need a better rig to progress.
You, the members are my best resource and I would like to consult with you as to what path you would take in upgrading. I am looking to get the most out of my money... as in obtaining a well equipped system. I have seen numerous used rigs within my budget although I am not sure what price point the equipment should fall into. I am looking to find a good rig that supports + 25 lbs if possible.
I have experimented with various rigs and the past and like them all much better than my current rig. My favorites have been those which are out of my price range. This new rig will be my 2nd and definitely not my last rig. What would you do? New or used?
My budget is 20k. Any resources, positive suggestions or feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I apologize for the error in the topic. I should read "under 20k"
You should be able to get a used Master for that kind of money. Also a BaerBel should go for that. I guess you must add a follow focus.

The distance to the manufacturer makes getting service a pain.
Any input or opinion of actioncam products?
