    just wondering, using the RED zoom on the flyer ? if it's approx. 8 pounds; you'd need more than the steadi-flyer anyway. (15 pounds max. weight) - add a mattebox, LCD, filters, follow focus etc... 1 pound added to the cam is inconsequential, IMO... personally i wouldn't buy a $15K steadi cam and not be able to use zooms on it. the archer is a better choice...

    making a cam like a tank -> rugged, stands up to environmental factors is much more important than a pound or two. they get one shot at a first impression.

    *Speculation alert*

    I can't help but wonder if there was an "incident" while testing the prototypes that led them to conclude it needed a stronger casing? :D

    very much doubt it.

    they've got a lot of field testing and benchmarks to meet.

    good thing they're out to make the 'best" cam for the cake they can... nothing goes from the drawboard to production without changes. this seems like a case of pride in craftsman ship more than anything else...

    My baseless speculation was that they need either more or an alternative cooling system which neccesitated enlarging the body.
