I will be shooting a dokumentary in China. Because of finanziall issues I will not be able to bring my own rig.
The producer wants me to use an "glidecam x-20". I haven`t used this rig before, but it doesn`t look very professional to me. Especially the monitor "bracket" looks to be a problem,since I want to be able to switch quickly between high- and lowmode, and it does not seem to be possible to turn the Monitor quickly. Also the gimbal seems realy small, after normaly using a 1.8" gimbal.
I would love to use a artemis EFP or a steadicam archer, but the total cameraweight will be about 5 kg, so a small rig would also do. I do not have any experience with lightweight rigs. Any suggestions what rig I should ask for, and where we could order it? We will be shooting near Bejing. ,
