I am brand new to this feild. I am looking at getting into steadicam work because my city is growing rapidly in the film industry, and it shows promise of continuing growth. I have been looking around at rigs, and what I can afford. I plan on attending workshops this summer, but I want to purchase a rig and start practicing everyday. I flew once and was pretty good at it. (for a noob) I found this modle on amazon and ebay, but I attached the ebay page. I have been watching video reviews, and people seem to love the rig. I wanted to get some feedback from people who work in the industry, and may own this rig. I want a rig that can atleast fly an Epic, and this can hold up to 33lbs. The sweet spot is 18-25, but it can go up to 33. I would obviously upgrade once I can afford to, but would I be able to get gigs with this rig, or is it looked at as amatureish?
