Ive sold my CP lo mode cage to a friend of mine. Problem is we dont know what its worth.
It is the type with the 3 sets of rods for different height cameras in perfect condition.
Any thoughts of its value much appreciated

Low Mode Cage, for the use with most portable film or video cameras and existing Steadicam. Permits versatile "low mode" Steadicam configuration. Adapts Camera Mounting Platform to support shooting camera in an image erect position. Requires 3M007 (That would be the"Robings J Bracket, by the way).


Steadicam Universal Model III, Price List, October 1, 1983: $500.-
Steadicam Universal Model III, Price List, October 1, 1985: $550.-
Steadicam Universal Model III, Price List, January 1, 1988: $600.-

At that rate you have to charge your friend today $10'000.-... actually the fact that you found somebody that wants to buy it... take the Dollar and run!

Hope that was at all of value...
And yes. I'm bored.
