The price is certainly phenomenal on these and the seem quite well made, so you can't really lose.

but tough for lenses with mechanical stops.
In such a situation you can cut and redo or often just work them round a bit, my Hofo lives rightside unlike my rig FF which lives leftside

Seems like a no brainer to throw these into your kit.
I'll buy a set just because I think it's the cheapest thing I've ever bought for Steadicam.

As a result, I am giving these gears a big thumbs up--the price is absolutely fantastic and the concept is a very smart one. Hats off to Sam. Huzzahs!
Now everyone go buy them so he can recoup his startup costs!
(the lenses are off at the case manufacturer--I was waiting for this final step before having the foam cut--but I will post pics upon their return).

My only concern is that the tie-down area will obviously need to be avoided for motor placement, which could become limiting when in a pinch--you never know when you might have to mount the motors on one side or the other.
I would throw a bag of zip ties into my Pelican that has all my camera support jazz in it. When done a shoot for someone without gear rings on their lenses just clip off the zip ties and take the gear straps off at the end of the gig. If you have to move them just cut them off and zip tie them down again. Impractical in some situations but others not.
