Do you think the 700 or the 600 would be better? I'm torn. The 600 is 26-33lbs and the 700 is 33-44lbs.
I agree the price for the ENG rig is a little steep, but they probably don't sell many, and have to recoup their development costs. But wouldn't it be great if everyone followed the Red pricing model.
There has to be a way to take your RED to a distributor and try it out to be sure.
I can't find a price for the 600 or 700. I'm sure it's not cheap, but I was blown away by how much easier it was to get used to than my stabilizer was.
The moves are different than a stabilizer. The DP's that were demoing it could get it to do some crazy things, but it was slow-going for me. It's best use, IMHO, is to move around hand-held style with a lot cleaner moves. I think that a steadicam would still be better for very complex moves.
So why trim the kit? I was thinking the opposite, bulk it up. It seems that a heavier camera on such a contraption would be more stable.
Load it or lighten it, I think the Easyrig looks interesting.
