This is sort of custom Steadicam was my first real sled after the dreaded Basson. It came pre-loved from MK-V in London two years ago. I have flown everything from a Panasonic DVX-100 (with weight plate) to a Sony Digibeta and my Panasonic DVCPro50.
I added the Teletest OZL7000 16:9/4:3 PAL/NTSC monitor.
The sled uses 14V Cinema Products Steadicam 3A battachment=1821:steadfull.jpg]atteries. There are 5 complete batteries and one shell with all bits ready to re-pack. Three of the batts were re-packed late last year and will run the sled and any broadcast camera easily for longer than I've needed. The other two don't hold a charge for long and need to be re-packed. The charger is Frezzolini Dual Micromaster.
The J-bracket came from Whitehouse AV. A Pelican 1650 case is included which is foamed for the sled, 4 batts, charger, bits and pieces and a Rig Steadicam arm (not included in sale).
It has served me well for two years but time to move onward and upward. This sled would be good for a newbie who can then add a variety of arms and vests of their choice for a relatively low cost starter kit.
PLEASE NOTE: If money is a concern, I have another alternative for a monitor which would see a brand new Glidecam L7-PRO replace the Teletest for a $1600AUD approx. discount against the price.
