I bought this rig and the accessories *NEW* in September 2008. This rig has served me well and earned back what I paid for it. I am moving into DP work on reality shows so I need a versatile light kit more than Steadicam for the time being.

This rig is well-maintained: only flown by me occasionally and never hired out. It's in perfect working condition and near-perfect cosmetic condition (but you can feel free to score it up and give it that well-traveled look producers love). I've flown all manner of ENG/EFP broadcast cameras, SR2, SR3, Panavision Elaine, REDONE and prosumer cameras with my 'custom' weight plate.

Perfect for a first time buyer looking for something beefier than a Flyer or an established operator looking for a lightweight/emergency backup rig.

1 Tiffen Steadicam Archer 12v Sled with TFT 700 nit LCD monitor w/ framelines (standard def, 16x9, daylight viewable)
1 Tiffen G-50 Iso-elastic arm
1 Tiffen Ultra Vest
1 Tiffen Low mode bracket

1 Stanton focus servo and electronic zoom control for Fujinon/Canon video lenses

1 AJA HD10MD3 Miniture Digital Downconverter with D-tap power cable

1 12v video camera power cable (3-pin lemo to 4-pin xlr)
1 Misc 12v power cable (4-pin Hirose to multi Anton Bauer D-Tap)
1 RED ONE Power cable (4-pin XLR to 10-pin lemo)
1 3-pin lemo (male) to 2-pin lemo (female) cable
4 Video cables various lengths (BNC to BNC)

2 Anton Bauer Hytron 140 batteries
1 Anton Bauer D-2722 Dual Powercharger w/ DDM module

1 Steadicam Archer Thermodyne Hard Flight Case
1 Pelican 1560 case for vest and arm
1 20" C-Stand w/ removable base and 12" riser (fits inside Pelican case)

1 Steadicam EFP Training video

Rig is located at my apartment in the beautiful San Fernando Valley. Come by and take it for a test flight.

Asking 20000 USD for this turnkey Steadicam system. I paid almost $35000 (my life savings at the time) when I bought it two years ago. +1.323.350.0478
