I apologize in advance if this is a regular topic, I did search but found no specific topics. My question is simple but I've found the answer not so easy. I know that the easy answer is 'everything', unfortunately not as realistic as I would wish.
Basically, when not rolling in piles of cash and having to choose a single (major) part to upgrade on ones rig, where should you start? I currently have a Steadicam 3a sled supported by a Glidecam Gold arm and vest.
Vest, arm or sled? Each part has an incredible influence on operating (skills aside) and I'm stuck scratching my balding head for where to start.
The better the vest will give more intimate control and more comfortable allowing you to operate longer.
The arm will help reduce simple things like bounce (once again not including operator skill) and improve a multitude of operating areas.
The sled. More power options, upgraded gimbal, easier balancing, list goes on.
So there are real world benefits to any on the components. I'd just love to hear opinions on which part you would/have chosen and why.
Thanks so much for taking the time to reply.
