I bought this steadicam package from Steadiriders / Michel Rodas.


Unfortunately what I received was not quite what was advertised. Pieces of the package were missing. The arm had broken parts, stripped threads and actually was a G70 - not the newer G70x.


The seller was very unhelpful in trying to resolve the issue. He promised a partial refund but never made good on his promise and apparently thought that just not responding to me anymore would make the issue go away.


I am currently in the process of talking to lawyers to sue Steadiriders for fraud and wire fraud.


Future buyers be warned.

The last three years I sold my six steadicams and my three remote controls to different operators around the world, and I've never had a bad return or a disagreeable remark. I even kept in touch with some of them. I am dumbfounded by such bad faith and lies, this is some evil people who absolutely wants to hurt me for reasons ill. He has the nerve to talk about fraud when he acquired a very good package well below its estimated value, and not content with that he asked me repeatedly lying and being an accomplice to defraud U.S. customs, that I finally accepted by solidarity, and I bitterly regret now.

Futures sellers, be warned

I bought Michel's PRO rig two years ago and have kept in touch with him.

Michel is one of France's best steadicam operator and worked on big films.

His rigs are well used, and have been around on set. It is not new gear, right off the shelf, obviously.

But my kit was very complete (with hard mount, superpost, cables, plates, rods, battery plates ...) and have been solid. I sent it to PRO for revision, which is what should be done when buying used precision tools like a steadicam package. Otherwise, buy new.

Minor scratches due to wear and tear, had to replace the pan bearings (like oil change in a car) and put in a new yoke, but that was it.

The shipping to Canada was no problem.


It is also preferable to actually meet with the seller and check out the gear before making such a big investment.
