I was wondering if any forum members &/or readers have a Steadicam EFP manual available. Photos or diagrams etc.

Thanks in advance,

Hey Ang, how are you?

I've sent a couple of emails to people who may have one as well. Will let you know if I find a copy. I do have a copy of the video manual but it has no electronics information in it. Louis may have one, and I'll ask him when i see him.

Also just a point on the forum policy's, we use our names here as usernames so that everyone knows who they are talking to. So you should probably change your username when you get a sec.

Hope alls well, catch u soon.

I still have the original manual that came with my EFP along with the VHS tape. I will check with Tiffen to see if they are selling the manual along with the newly re-mastered EFP DVD. If they are I think its best to go thru them and if not send me your mailing address and I will mail you a copy

Hi guys,

I recently received my EFP rig upgraded by MKV that I have imported from France.

I would like to have some cables made up for my rig.

Can anyone please help me out as to what type of connectors the blue 4pin and 6pin inputs are called and on the J box, what type of connector is used for the zoom, focus and iris? I would really appreciate any feedback regarding this matter. For now I am using BNC and XLR cable connectors.

If there is a manual availble for the techinal info and you are willing to pass it on, it will be much appreciated.
