Hi everyone,

I'm new to Steadicam and gearing up at the moment,

What is the best price/quality wireless video tx/rx out there?

I browsed through most topics in here and people praise the Canatrans a lot.
It's quite expensive though and only a tx.

I already have the 8.4'' Panasonic monitor. Anyone experience with hooking wireless up to that?


Thanks in advance,
Jerry

Jerry,

People like to pair the Canatrans with this:

This is even a step up from that with removable antennas and add-on recievers:

Probably why it's popular to sell Tx and Rx seperately..

Mike,

thanks for the info.
The Camos monitor is not very bright though...only 400 nits.

do you know for how much the HPVIDEO sells?

Thanks,
jerry

Below are some PDF files that reference each model #

7002 - $1000
6501S - $1900
6502S (1.2ghz) - $3300
6502S (2.4ghz) - $2900

Note that the 6502 models come with both a transmitter and a 2nd reciever (besides the monitor itself), and have the option for that 2nd reciever to be a diversity reciever (2 antenna inputs).

Thanks a lot for the posts. It explained some stuff to me.

I was also looking at the TITAN system by Transvideo.

What do you know about that one?
Seems very good.
And it can hook up to the anton bauer gold mount to get power.
