I have a question for anyone who has either the hands on or knows Epic.
Iam building a hand held stabilizer addressed to light camcorders, and while I have designed this for the 5D-7D range DSLRS , since Epic can be a light camera too I would like to look at the possibility of flying Epic LIGHTWEIGHT or Scarlet on it.
So anyone that had hands on on Epic, can you give me a clue on what would be the weight for an epic in the lightest configuration, with a normal lens a lightweight mattebox e.t.c.
The battery and lcd can be placed at the lower end of the sled so please do not calculate as one unit, but specs and weight of these are also welcome.
Some words about the stabilizer.
This design is a complete sled with a gimbal handgrip that allows the operator
to operate with just one hand and have great freedom for running, jumping and all other kinds of accel-decel fast action with out limits apart of the weight that his arm can handle.
This is not a cheaply made device.
It houses a state of the art X,Y stage with dovetail plate and active lock,
a Precision gimbal with the lowest friction possible, a lower base that can be adjusted in x axis and a monitor mount as well as varius battery mounts at the back.
The post is a telescopic 1.5 inch Carbon fiber.
There will be an open frame model for free internal wiring of any cables needed for any camera, or a upper and lower connector box for powering and monitoring lemo connectors .
The results of this device are exceptionally good providing great stabilization
steadicam like moves with the best possible freedom for the operator to run jump climp and any other style rapid moves, and low mode configuration as well.
Please feel welcome to give me any info about Epic or Scarlet and if you have any questions please email me.
This is going to be a very affordable device providing fluid and stabilized shots
with out a steadicam learning curve nor weight and limited freedom of moves.
It can fit in a 600mm X 200mm X 150 mm case and can be carried anywhere with no effort.
Thank you in advance
