I'm mostly DPing these days so looking to find a loving home for my trusty Steadicam Archer.

This is a fantastically versatile rig that offers a big step up from the Flyer and Zephyr. It will handle (reasonable) RED and Alexa builds with ease, and you're getting a G-50 arm which is an utter joy to operate.

Bought this about four years ago and to be honest used it only sporadically so it's in very presentable condition and ready to go.

Items included:

  • Tiffen Steadicam Archer sled in original hard flightcase
  • G-50 arm in soft case
  • LX vest in soft case
  • Docking bracket
  • American heavy duty stand
  • Allen drivers for arm and socket block
  • Lemo > XLR4 power cable
  • Gimbal J handle for low mode
  • V-lock power plate on sled (with additional paralleled lemo on reverse so you can add a second plate to battery balance bars for extra weight at base of post if you wanted)

Only snags: the frameline generator in the monitor died a while back and I never used it anyway so it's just bypassed in the back of the monitor. Very easy to get a new board from Tiffen and replace if you wanted it. Also the hanging cable on the arm has come off at one end so needs a new fixing.

This would be a great alternative to a new Flyer or Zephyr for someone new to Steadicam - skip the smaller rigs and get straight to work with something that can take a MUCH wider range of cameras. Just add some V-lock batteries and go.

Paid £12,000 ($19,500) new.

Looking for £8,500 ($13,850) ONO.

(Also selling - posts to come soon - Walter Klassen Hard Mount; Marshall 7" HD-SDI monitor (v-lock); Blackmagic HDMI>SDI converter.)

Located in UK, happy to ship worldwide. Kitten not included.

£12000 for a new Archer SE??? If you don't mind my asking where did you buy it? Because if I remember right it was priced $26000, that means £16500.

Many thanks

Hi Matteo - this was the standard Archer 1 not the SE (they did end up putting a tilt stage on it for some reason) and it was a few years ago bought with a lot of other kit so possibly we had a good discount. Bought through Creative Video.

The Steadicam Archer kit that I have for sale was originally purchased from a well known sales outlet in the UK.

It was used /practiced with by a Steadicam Wannabee for a few weeks only and then only intermittently, and then stored for the duration. It is in MINT condition.

I am quite prepared to show / demo and discuss the price for a close offer.

This is a genuine sale and not a come-on by any means. I am a well know Reseller of Used and New equipment in the UK.

Find me on All well known sites worldwide. Buy with confidence the item is a g/teed success for the buyer. Save lots of money from Retail why pay more!

Cheers

Tony Covell.   LEQ Ltd.
