I've got an actioncam rig (red edition), which I'm hoping to rent out to fellow steadicam operators, while I temporarily focus on non-steadicamming endeavors over the next few months (until early october 2010 or thereabouts).

For more info on the Actioncam, go here: http://actionproduct...&products_id=29

The rig is in immaculate shape and has been carefully maintained. I am thinking of consigning the rig over to a rental house in LA for the time period in question, but thought I would gauge interest here first. If there proves to be no interest from the steadicam forum community between today and May 24, I will probably opt for the consignment route.

The going rental rate for the Actioncam (Red Edition) can be found here (it's $3950/month):


My goal would be to set someone up with a far better deal, and my preference would be to greenlight a long-term rental to one single operator or production company--anywhere between 1 and 4 months.

Accordingly, for a limited time only, here are the rates I'd like to offer and receive commitments on:

4 months $3300
3 months $2800
2 months $2200
1 month $1400

NOTE: i recognize that 4 months is a long time to game out in advance, and that committing to a 4-month or 3-month rental is an inherent gamble, but if my offer sounds exciting to you and you truly believe that you'll be able to make money off of the rig (and/or benefit from it artistically), you should not hesitate to contact me. The Actioncam is not quite in the same league as a Steadicam Clipper or Ultra, but it's a superb rig: it punches way above its weight!

NOTE: If you're interested in a 5 month deal up front, we can talk about it. At this point, though, I am anticipating using the rig on a couple of projects slated to begin early october-ish. This is another way of saying that we might want to structure a 4 1/2 month agreement instead--depending on when you begin the rental.

NOTE: If, on May 24 I elect to not go with the consignment proposal, I will then raise the prices on the 1-month, 2-month,3-month, and 4-month quotes.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or to book a rental. I have no problem shipping outside the US for a long-term rental. Do not PM me here. Instead, for the fastest response, send emails to:
