I'm quite new to Steadicam and currently any Steadicam gigs I would do I would be renting a rig for as I am currently not in a position to buy my own rig.
Just wanted to ask what would be good first investments for someone in this position? i.e buying my own batteries, spare screws/dovetail plate etc
I understand things like spare camera screws, various sized camera plates are quite crucial but what would you invest in first/what order?
I am yet to get my first Steadicam gig but I would feel more confident If I invested in the right things to be prepared for any shoots.
Also to anyone who's rented a rig from a rental house, could you tell me what is in the kit? I understand this might vary between places but it would give me more of an understanding as what would be a good idea to purchase
Apologies if there's any key information you need to know in order answer this.
