Hi folks
I'm in the market for a new post/gymbal and top d-box etc. Currently have a Pro model 1 w/a model 2 battery cage. I'm looking for something a little more rigid than the current set up and with a little more extendability. What have you got, are happy with, what are the advantages/disadvantages etc.
thanks for the input.

Contact Greg Bubb at XCS (Xtended Camera Support 805-531-0014; GBubb@adelphia.net
). I have been using his two inch post and gimbal for a couple of years now (gimbal for longer, actually). Been extremely happy with both! I think you might even get away with playing baseball with that post it so strong!

MK-V also does a conversion and his gimbal is nice too.

Top stage? Look under the thread about beta testing a new design from Rig Engineering. Otherwise, GPI DB3 is extremely good.

Hey Rod!

Nice to hear from you. Make sure to check out Steadyrig's new Topstage that is currently touring the world. Looks like they've really done their homeweork. Also make sure that MK-V and Baer-Bel are looked at closely, as they have great products that are well proven in the marketplace.

Take care!

Hi Rod!

Check out the chrosziel stage! I think it's the best in the market! I use it with my Nexus and it's just wonderful!

Hi Guido,
did you had the chance to test the GPI DB-3 and the RIG stage? Why did you choose the Rig stage?

I just like the rig stage better! It's the "feel" of it! I bet the Gpi is wonderful but for me it's also the service which is just around the corner...! Give me a call for more info!
