Quick Delivery; Very Nice System; Thanks A++++
I have had this Basson Steady stedicam system, model SILVERARROW PRO 6 HYBRID READY) for about 1 year now and have had over five years of experience with low budget Glidecam and Steadicam vest systems, as well as with 3 axis gimbals for dslrs, but I started getting into professional broadcast work and needed a big rig that could handle the weight.
One of the first thing I noticed when I got the rig is that it has a lot more movement than the other Chinese and off-brand rigs.
This rig can actually "float" if done right which is something that doesn't really happen with the off-brand rigs.
The sternght and quality of the springs and bearings is unlike anything I have ever used before and it actually took some getting used to, they give you a flash drive with the owners manual and a complet start up video of 15 minutes.
There are several training tips on the manual as well as on the demo videos on youtube but that short video will get you headed in the right direction. You have to ad a monitor and a v mount battery to use it thats it, they recommend brands such as Small hd 5 or 7 inches or Feelworld 7inches 4k monitor that you will them on Amazon or B&h photovideo.
I have no real complaints with the stedicam si far.
I actually use this stedicam for all my jobs because it is so reliable and useful, so far I have used everything from a DSLR with a counterweight to increase the minimum weight also with a bunch of accessories added for weight, to a heavy weight RED ONE camera and an Arri Alexa with a wireless transmitter and I am never at full of the arm's capacity.
I have noticed that the arm can make almost imperceptible creaking noises from time to time but those noises will go away after lubricating the arm springs.
One of the things you are going to have to buy is a case or make it , I have a hard case for mine and it holds all my stedicam gear, and accessories, etc.
You will also obviously need a c-stand or any sturdy stand for lights with a loading capacity of 30kgs at a height of 1,3mts, if you plan on doing any broadcast work you need to have some type of zoom controller and rods, it is nice that the rig can break apart to be able to fit into a small case which can come in useful if you need room for extra gear in your case.
The Basson Steady stedicam tripple paddesd vest is comfortable to wear.
I am a big guy and it will still fit on me, this system is just like any other professional high grade Steadicam system on the market just with new hybrid ready upgraded features, all in all the Basson Steady Silverarrow pro 6 hybrid ready is basically the upgraded stedicam Basson Staedy Silverarrow pro 6.
Smooth looking footage (with basic practice) Can break apart to fit into a small hard case, can carry light loads and heavy loads with ease, another good thing with this product is that this hybrid ready system is compatible with the electro stabilized Endless rotary head, so once I get the money I will buy the rotary head to put it on top of my steadycam to get the best hybrid stedicam Basson Steady model Endless 3.
Nothing wrong to say about this steadycam, thye send it to me very fast, the system is very nice and strong, it worked like a horse all year, no complains.
If you are wanting a rig to give you professional smooth shoots and great results this is an amazing rig to buy, there is no up and downs disturbing movements like with a 3 axis gimbal footage, it just flys around perfectly steady, there is a learning curve to this stedicam system but the results speak for themselves, you're probably going to end up spending another $1000 in accessories like lcd monitor, hard case, v-mount batteries and charger, and c-satnd, etc, to get up and running, I would recommend this professional stedicam Basson Steady silverarrow to anyone who is looking to set themselves apart from anyone else.
