I recently just bought A Steadicam Pilot that uses RCA cables to connect the camera to the monitor.

Is their a way to swap out the cables that run through the sled to HDMI or SDI?

looking to upgrade the monitor and cables

It is a straight forward matter to replace all the cables in the pilot system

I am wondering just the same. I just got one myself and I'm thinking to do that. It doesn't look so hard but you never know :).

Anyone tried before? ;)
