Hello every one, some time ago, I went crazy about what to buy for my first rig and after I started digging, I found there are hundreds of options and possible combinations to build from the cheapest rig to the most professional that can be found.


I don't wanna bore you so i'll cut to the point. I made a chart with all the information about brands and prices I could find for different sleds, arms, vests, wireless focus systems, wireless video systems, monitors and batteries. This chart is not complete, as there are always new gadgets out there, but I believe it will help you get an idea, of what you could buy, or at least give you a glimpse of what are the options.


I originally did this only for my self, but I thought it would be nice to share it with such a good community.

I also made this document editable, so please feel free to add anything or correct it if needed. 


Have fun! :)

Hi Jesus - I think you want to check the numbers you have for the Tiffen Zephyr.


Full packages were around $10k or $11k last I checked...


Good luck in any event.

Thanks Chris, you were right, I must have got confused.


I'm sorry, you can't directly edit the document in the other link but try this.
