My partner and I are looking to acquire a steadicam rig immediately and are looking to spend something like $1500.00. My partner is a very experienced pro cinematographer -- he liked an Animagique rig he saw but it looks like that company is nowhere to be found. I've poked around this forum and can't seem to find any specific recommendations -- maybe I haven't looked hard enough. If it's not within the forum's purview to make such recommendations, then what's a "newbie" to do?
Thanks, Steve

Hi Steve:

Probably the first piece of information (other than your budget) that anyone here would need to be able to make a recommendation would be what weight class of cameras you need to accomodate.

Animagique (Magiqcam) does indeed seem to be gone, and there are many stories floating around of people left hanging with unfulfilled orders.
