Just ordered the Pilot HD from B & H.  They are a special order. Anyone know how long they take to ship from the manufacturer?

 

Thanks

Kevin

My Zephyr order took almost a month to get. Working on an Archer 2 and was told about a month also. They might be quicker with Pilot but not sure.

What is with this company? Steadicam or whomever? B & H said 7-14 days and we are still waiting. :)

Hi Vic

I called Tiffen and they would only talk through B & H.  B & H promptly called them and I am expecting delivery this week.  I just didn't think they would be behind in manufacturing.  Are these that hot an item? truthfully I though this was old technology..:)

Oh it is far from old technology. You are getting an extremely precisely machined piece of gear that will last a very long time. Congratulations on your purchase and welcome to the Steadicam community!

make sure to read the book, and attend to a workshop if you haven't already. There is a learning curve and it is important for you to learn the right posture to avoid hurting yourself. 

Fly safe.

Hey Kevin, the workshop that they hold in Pennsylvania 2 twice a year is a great one to go. I enjoyed my time there and learned a lot from it.
