Turnkey system. Ready to work today. Redundant brackets and cables, cheese plates, rod plates, Garfield mount, universal low mode cage, weighted camera cage can be used either for practice at home or to adapt lightweight (HVX200 etc.) cameras, freshly re-celled batteries, modulus 3000, brand new rain covers for sled and monitor, gators for the arm, two docking brackets - one for the stand (included), one for the Steadicam senior magliner (included).

Master series arm was completely rebuilt by the one and only Robert Luna down to the bearings a couple of years ago and while it?s been in my possession only he has maintained it. It is cosmetically and functionally flawless.

The sled has been modified to accept IDX batteries in addition to the PAG, so that the rig will fly Panavision's Genesis camera. Standard IDX battery acceptor plates mounted on machined backings slide onto the outboard dovetail plates on either side of the sled. This preserves dynamic balance. Terry West (originally of Cinema Products when the Masters Series was being developed and built) then installed a cable that runs up the center of the sled post and connects to the 12V output at the back of the top stage. This delivers all the 12V power the thirsty Genesis and all it?s accessories require. The sled itself simply draws its power from the PAG battery hanging in the standard position at the back of the sled. The system is elegantly modified, converts in minutes and is ready to fly the Genesis in either one or two-piece mode.
