Only minor complaints from it so far and some of those things could be user error. The vest fits, the arm and sled fits my ~7-8lbs rig and it has been a learning process but amazing addition to my gear. The padding in the vest could be thicker, the HDMI input plug in the block is super tight. One of the arm screws is a little loose and it is not easy to fix. Other than that it is an amazing piece of gear that is cheaper than other rigs for this weight and have so many features. \r\n \r\nDefinitely a great purchase","name":"Exactly what I wanted","author":"Jordan","reviewRating":{"@type":"Rating","ratingValue":"4","bestRating":"5"}},{"@type":"Review","datePublished":"2021-06-30","description":"I just used this rig on an indie feature I wrapped, and overall I was pleased with how it performed. It does have its quirks, and I'll try to go through some of those below: \r\n \r\nOut of the box, the vest is huge, and has little padding. I'm about 5' 11\" and 180 lbs and at the vest's smallest configuration, it was loose on me. I ended up using some of the thin packing foam in the box and adding it to the existing foam that is used to pad the vest - wouldn't you know it, it was the same type of foam. There are zippers to access the padding, so it wasn't too difficult to do. \r\n \r\nI was impressed by the build quality of the arm and sled. I'm on the fence about the advertised weight capacity - part of me feels like 26 lbs is a little bit of a stretch, but I had the camera weight up to 21 pounds, and it seemed to handle it short term. I shot the film on the RED Gemini using Atlas Orion Anamorphic lenses. I had a Vaxis 3000 wireless video transmitter and a Nucleus-M Follow Focus unit, along with a RED Brick battery onboard as well. I weighed the camera using the 65mm in the set, and it weighed in around 19 lbs. I felt that was toward the limits of the rig - the arm spring tension was all the way up to have the arms remain in a horizontal position. But I did fly the 100mm lens twice, and it handled the increase in weight - that would land the camera weight around 21 lbs. \r\n \r\nBalancing wasn't too difficult if you have experience with a Steadicam, but there is some play in the fore/aft and horizon leveling knobs and there are tightening knobs which play into the balance - you get the balance close, tighten the knob, see how it affects the balance, then loosen it, tweak the balance, and then tighten again. I got used to this workflow, and made it a part of the balance process, but it is annoying. \r\n \r\nOverall I was impressed with the performance of the rig, despite the quirks. I think this would make for a great introduction to Steadicam operating for someone, and give them the opportunity to fly a heavier camera without the investment of a full Steadicam rig.","name":"Has quirks, but gets the job done","author":"Denton","reviewRating":{"@type":"Rating","ratingValue":"4","bestRating":"5"}},{"@type":"Review","datePublished":"2021-02-01","description":"Just shot a film called Breaking and Entering and was able to get some beautiful shots with my new rig.","name":"Love it.","author":"Danny","reviewRating":{"@type":"Rating","ratingValue":"5","bestRating":"5"}},{"@type":"Review","datePublished":"2020-03-03","description":"Overall, the CAME-TV Pro Camera Stabilizer works for my needs.

question

Is there a Gold Mount battery plate available for this?
Asked by: Richard
The bottom of this system does offer 15mm rod connections. You could use a product like the IndiPRO Tools Gold Mount Battery Adapter Plate with D-Tap Output and 15mm Rod System, B&H # INGMP15MM, with it. https://bhpho.to/2bZvv96

question

Does the hdmi and sdi inputs at the top of the sled transmit 4K footage from the camera to a 4K monitor/Recorder attached to the monitor mount?
Asked by: John
The capability of the SDI cable is not known. However, for such a short distance, I think it has a good chance to work. You may have to run a new cabling however.

question

It's compatible for DSLR and HD Camera?Do I need special accessories for mounting DSLR and HD Camera?
Asked by: SOO Y.
The arms specification is 5.5 to 33.1 lb (2.5 to 15 kg). Most DSLR's barely make that minimum. My experience with Steadicams is that they work best when the weight is in the middle of the arms specifications. You may wish to get an arm that is set up for that light a weight. Otherwise, you can mount any camera you wish physically.
