The vest and arm look a little big and clumsy for such a small rig, no??

The rig looks interesting. But the most interesting part is the camera - Manuel where did you get JVC HD100 - it is not in sale yet?!

Could you share any insides about the performance of the rig?

Hey!!! If it rules OK. Like PILOT or others welldone products, It will not be only for newbies....
Are you tryed to fly a new H-D cam (0,5-3 Kg load) in a Master film?..... or similar?....
Small load capacity rig are not only for newbies... It´s only other working tool.
Be happy boy

Try to contact directly Curt O. Schaller, the designer of the whole Artemis series. I'm sure he can help you the most!

Regarding the Artemis rigs, I have two, Cine and EFP! And all I can say, regarding me, the best rig in the market. I first bought Cine, and I was so stisfied with it's relibility and built quality, when the bussines spread a litlle bit, a couple of years later I bought a Artemis EFP.

So I don't agree with Luis, but I respct his opinion regarding steadicam. To me Artemis is much better bulit then Steadicam. I was shooting in Thailand a cuople of weeks ago, a TV show, on open air, humidity 100%. There was also a guy with Flyer. My EFP was working buitifly, his steadicam monitor simply died.

I worked many times with Master film, I even wanted to buy Vector, but when I tried Artemis I simply knew, this is the rig for me. I never felt so comfortable with a rig before, especialy now when I have a brend new ACT 2 vest. Don't get me wrong, but I have a lot o job with my rigs, and I invested very much in my equipment, and very often I don't even look for the cost of it I just have to buy it if I want that my bussines is done properly, and I never ever had any problems with the rig or with the Artmis service!

But I must say the new G70 arm from steadicam is realy great. It is not that new ACT 2, from artemis is not good, to be honest is probably the best "old school" arm in the market, and honsetly, I don't see any difference beetwean ACT2 and PRO arm??? And it looks very sexy in carbon fiber covers! :-)

But the G70 is the first steadicam arm that I can work with, and work great! Normal Iso-Elastic arm it wasnt just for me! I could never get used at this iso elasticity, but with G70, where you can "control" the amount of Iso_elasticity, it really mkes it a great arm! So, it's not that I don't like everything from steadicam, it's just a metter of opinion, and to me Artemis is better rig :-)
