Recently I've become increasingly dedicated to steadicam and embracing the fact that I will eventually need to have my own rig. With money being by biggest issue I would hate to have a piece of gear slip out my hands because I don't have the money. At this point I'm trying to figure out what is the best route to achieve this financially.
I've come here to ask what everyone here has done in the past. Did you buy a new rig outright and take a gear loan? Did you find someone to buy you that new rig and strike a long-term deal? Did you buy a second hand rig and take a gear loan? Look for individual pieces and build the rig, while taking a gear loan?
So as of now i'm trying to consider every possible angle and what will be best for me, with the situation I'm in. Thank you for your advice.
