Hi folks, just wondering if anyone has tried the auto leveling Omega lite or the new Letus Helix 1 axis pro.
I have always wanted an AR but now it seems that there are cheaper and lighter options...
love to hear your thoughts.

I've tried them all and believe the best out there is the Sachtler Trinity setup. It's rigid, has a high payload and is much more well thought out than the other options. Believe in it enough that i'll be taking delivery on my own in a few weeks.

Hi Jon,
Thanks for replying.
Isn't the Trinity in a complete different level of pricing?
I've tried the Trinity in IBC and the only thing that I didn't like is the fact that you need to control the tilt with a Joystick. Other than that it felt amazing.
The auto horizon feature can really be helpful in windy situations, and that's even more important to me than switching from low to high mode.
Best,
Daniel

Any feedback on the Letus Helix 1 Pro specifically? What worked? What did not?
