BAERBEL: THE BEST !!!!!!!
Baerbel is probably one of the coolest and reliable persons in this business i ever got to know.
he is a real freak and builds you just anything you need from srcatch.He´s a master of engenering and just knows a 100% what he´s doing.Beside from that his service is excellent.
If you crash with your rig and need a replacement he guaranties to deliver it anywhere in germany (or was it even europe?) within one day! what other supplier would do that ?
you can call him any time if you have problems with your gear,or even if your girlfriend left you.
(No, don´t start calling baerbel because your girlfriend left you.He will never talk to me again )
I myself am a proud baerbel-owner.I still have one of his older models (SN:0020 !) wich still looks a bit bulky,but i love it and keep upgrading it.If i had the money i would buy a new baerbel-rig with build in frameliner and electronic bubble.You should definitely have a look at that one.
He also has another new model (without frameliner/e-bubble) .
everytime i come in his shop he shows me something new that he just invented.he is just the INVENTER !
Just think of gimmicks as the cat-griller,or his sushi-server (low-mode cage).great stuff !
And his arm : I LOVE IT ! When i bought it i didn´t have the money to get a pro-arm (20.000$)
and got one of his first new arms.it turned out to be a very good choice.(it´s made for heavy duty and takes up loads up to 37 kg !Just came near to it´s limit when i had to fly a BL4s)
His vest is , to be honest, not the very best vest on earth.But it´s allright for most purposes.
I know this sounds like a Bearbel-Commercial, but so what! That His stuff is good quality!
Here´s some barbel history :
The rig "Russian Arc" was done with was a special build Baerbel and baerbel also constructed a fully working tampon-suspender!!!!!!!! for his female clients. Don´t know what .happened to that thing.Probably not enough female customers around.
that was it !

I have absolutely no clue as to what this would be other than I highly doubt it is at all Steadicam-related, but boy do you have me curious!

hey mitch !
it really has absolutely nothing to do with steadicam.baerbel did this more for a joke, but it worked!Guess he´s just a bit crazy sometimes
And he builds great rigs !

The arm is brilliant, very smooth and light, Whilst not iso-elastic and fairly centre weighted. These attributes make it the best running arm in the bussiness by far! some of the running shots i pulled off with this arm up and down stairs and through fights still amaze me (brian tuffano s "kidulthood" soon to be released). slick/smooth arm with many bearings but not iso-elastic. It weighs nothing!
The sled is like people say "rock solid" . you ll understand that when you play with it. It works very well.
try it out for certain!

I've had one of his sled for about 2 years! Wonderful! As said before "rocksolid"! Built to my needs! Try to find a used one! I know some guys who are thinking of selling theirs!
If u want to know more email me!

Like all things the bottom line price is not the only story.
Completely agree with Sebastians comments
Try to try it out anyway even if for the future.
Contact me anytime

i`m using a baer-bel rig since more then 3 years. And i didn`t get a lot of problems with it. Its right that Marcus is very helpfull and smart. And speacaliy related to the price it is a good choice. On other hand i know a bit more " preceice" systems know ( for example " the RIG") but it`s 50% more expensive then the " baer-bel". If you want to know , fell free to contact me.
