Hello

With admiration I have seen the new features of the new family member com Zephyr Tango

My question is:

The new workshops will be to work with the Zephyr?

I'm hoping programming workshops in the second half of 2010, which will probably already on the Zephyr


Thanks

Hi Nelson,

I would not be surprised if the Flyer/Pilot workshops added the Zephyr, however I wouldn't be afraid to take one before the Zephyr is included. All of the same principles apply. I would just make sure to go over the balancing on a Pilot, as it is closer to the balancing of the Zephyr than a Flyer is.

I do not know how the Tango will be included in workshops or if it will have it's own, or what. I would imagine it will be longer before we see the Tango available anyway.

Is the Zephyr compatible with existing TIFFEN Steadicam rigs? It is not clear to me as they talk about their new rigs as being Zephyr compatible.

Zephyr is a new rig, similar in weight capacity to a Flyer, but with some features of the Pilot (adding small weights when necessary), some features of bigger rigs (expandable monitor and battery positions, no-tools gimbal, XY vernier/drop in stage), and it has a few tricks of its own (customizable connectors and wiring, and "Tango-compatible"). Arm is pretty much a Flyer arm, vest will be either a Flyer vest or something similar (TBD last I heard). So the new sled will work with a Flyer arm (or other arms with an adaptor post).

Workshops: Will be added to all Tiffen workshops when in production.

Hi Jerry,

I am getting your products mixed up I meant Tango (when I said Zephyr). Will the Tango unit be backwards compatible with pre-existing rigs with an intermediary widget or otherwise.
