I'm writing this for a friend of mine who's not so good at writing in english. Marco Buzzetti, a great steadicam operator based in Italy. His equipment has been stolen some months ago (december 2010), after months of search obviously it has come out again on ebay. A complete master elite sled, arm and vest on sale for just 9000 euros. Since from the request a pro op should understand there's something strange in the deal and in fact there is. It's stolen equipment. You can easily recognize the sled because it's hardly customized and has got top stage and gimble yellow/gold, arm and vest are Master.
What we're asking to the comunity it to stay away from bidding this equipment and if possible to help recollect it. Italian postal police said they can do few about it since the equipment is now located in Romania (as suggested in the ebay annouce).
i'll attach a pic and the old ebay offer where you can see more photos.
Thanks for the help and the support.
My best to all of you.
