*edit* looks like im within the 30 day window. So, any suggestions for sled then with my rig taken into account?
Heres the issue, I purchased a Steadicam Merlin, however i forgot to take into account the mounting equipment I was planning on using with the mount. My fault, however now im trying to buy just a sled and its proving to be more difficult than i thought.
I have the vest and arm from the merlin, I just really need a heavier duty sled. I have my Canon 5d Mark III in a Redrock UltraCage with Ultracage Back. Definitely more than the weight limit of the merlin.
-Side rail with acessory plate (for H4N Zoom
-v-Mount battery for the back plate and power distribution through the Redrock Power Distributor
-Sennheiser shotgun microphone with blimp
All in all a fairly heavy rig even though I replaced the steel tubes on the mattebox with Carbon Fiber ones. Not much of a difference.
Is there any way to buy just the sled. I already have alot of my budget sunk into this rig and buying both a whole new vest and sled is just not feasible. However it seems most heavier supporting sleds are sold with an lcd and the arm/vest stabilizer set.
Ok so im looking for a sled/arm vest combo without LCD mount. XD
Just wondering if anyone here would know.
A few i looked at were.
Steadicam Pilot-AA or Zephyr
