the sled is made by movcam, I was in Bejing in March and visited the Chinese NAB, did take some pics and planned to write something on the stuff they make on SOA, did not have the time yet to do so but will within a couple of weeks (starting a new series next week, dop operator on the red so homework to be done)
first impression;
Movcam is a well made copy with as far as I know no idea on how things really work, it felt like a car with flat tires and the engine build upside down but Im convinced it will sell by the way it looks.
People at movcam where very friendly and eager to learn and I'm sure they will improve.
