Hello gentlemen and some ladies,
I'm looking to sell my Ultra 2 steadicam as a COMPLETE ready to shoot now set including my G-Zoom control ($1,200) and program return monitor & bracket ($600). This is a "Big" rig that can fly any camera we may come across.  I use it both for broadcast and single camera work w/o any issues.  I've owned the rig just over 3 yrs and it's in great shape.  I just dropped it off at Tiffen yesterday to let Michael and the crew give it a look over and inspection and just last week I got the vest serviced with an entire new back section.  This is a great rig for anyone, but perfect for a anyone playing in both the broadcast and narrative world.
Full description and Pics are included below.  I'm located in LA and Nashville.  Please contact me via email TravisHays@Gmail.com or Cell: 615.207.6392
Price: $45,000 US
