Hi,

does anyone have a step by step description or a video how to remove the gimbal from the post?
I will send my Gimbal in for a service at the end of the year, so i have to take it of.

Greetings Felix

Talk to Chris Betz in Muenchen.

Also, unless you need to exchange the pan bearing, you can service it on the rig.

I think i have to exchange the pan bearing, because on some point i feel a friction while paning.

Just mailed Christian about a week ago, he replied that there are no more spare parts for the Ultra1 Gimbal and that he couldn't do it. :/

So i have to remove the gimbal and send it to someone else.

Greetings Felix

Send it to Tiffen/ UK

rthwaites@tiffen.com

 

The bearings are all in standard sizes, so some bearing should be available, somewhere.

Hi Felix

 

The bearing should be available, the problem would be if the clamp mechanism is damaged.

Thank you for the reply.

The clamp mechanism works fine, i just need some new bearings for pan, tilt and roll.
I heard of the clamp mechanism problem on the master und ultra gimbal, but i checked that and mine works fine and i diddnt get any problems from there.

Greetings Felix
