I am selling my Steadicam Zephyr package. It comes with the standard vest, hard case with wheels, CF post (sled), arm with 24 lb payload capacity and some extras. It has a V-lok plate, is wired for HD (SDI), has a steadicam branded Marshall Monitor that takes HD-SDI, component and composite signals. It was purchased a little over 2 years ago. Has seen light use (pic Arm7.jpg still shows some factory tape) and always well cared for. No dry rentals. Always in the hard case when not in use.
Reason for selling--I have a minor back issue that flairs up on occasion. I have had this for 20 years and just recently "retired" from golf because of it. The steadicam seems to affect me in just the right way to make the condition act up. With my kids getting more involved and extra curriculars, I have made a lifestyle choice to spend time with them and not trying to recover after every operating day.
In the pictures you can see a small "knick" on the arm. (picture Arm6.jpg). That is the only damage to the rig other than a paint chip here and there. The camo colored wrap on the post is tennis grip tape and will be removed before it ships. Included is a arm cover or gator that helps weather proof the arm from water and sand.
I am including a 5 lb weight plate (cheese plate) made by Thompson. it and thru and thru holes and a lot of 1/20 threaded mounting spots. With the lighter cameras in use todya this was invaluable in getting the rig balanced correctly and keeping the gimble close to the stage. The shipping weight of the rig in the case with the weight plate is 65.4 lbs. Low enough to meet media rate shipping restrictions on most airlines. F bracket is included for low mode operation. Extra post clamp locks are included.
Package price is $8350 + $50 shipping.
I have 65 detailed photos of the rig at this link:
Feel free to look them over and ask me any questions.
I am open to phone conversations about the rig. However, do to a heavy production scheudle the next few weeks, it would be better to use email to schedule a call.
