    I find it super nice. None of the bits had any issue in my kit. You need a gopro battery for the remote but except for that it does not need any mods. I think most complaints was people who never operated a steadycam and or got early production runs that had some faults.


    Was playing around in the office with it today with the dji auto focus... Together with float its quite a game changer. My films where I chase my cats around the garden will look tons better. Tack sharp and shalow focus. :)

    Stability is the issue, that's why side handles are preferable. The float is not something I'll get because I need a faster switch between using the gimbal and tripods. Balancing the Float and operating that doesn't really fit my workflow.
    As well as custom-building isn't really something I have resources for. So I need to get what I can get.

    So I still need to know which side handle works best, Tiltas or DJIs? And what about SmallRigs Manfrotto plate? Is it possible to mount counter-weights on the back of it? What SDI 12G cables work that doesn't affect balancing etc.

    Thanks for the insight. I figured the complaints were from people who didn't quite know what they were getting into. I have a few early classes in steadycam ops, so my expectations for the float are definitely measured. I'm by no means an expert.

    Now hopefully tilta can get mine out the door in the next month

    Checked out the Tilta side handles and there's one thing I don't understand. Why do the handle with the focus wheel have to be wirelessly connected to the RS2 when a cable between that handle and RS2 would make much more sense? Don't understand the benefit of that and is there a cable version instead to reduce the number of wireless signals?

    Tiltas wireless RS2 controller that comes with float is superb. Zero lag and good range and just works. I assume their handle does the same.

    But is it based on the same tech? I mean, I get that it might be good to go wireless for the handle since you could use it for a second person controlling focus and the head just using the handle, but does it have an internal battery to work like that? I just don't get why the handle doesn't have a cable option? What's the point of having it wireless when it's attached to the RS2? It's not even working towards the moving parts, but the base of the RS2.

    The tilta float jostick / controller thing also runs on its own battery and it can be charged / powered wiht USB3 in, is it not the same for the handle?

    And the joystick lasts really long on one little gopro battery so no real need for wires. To me its great if all camera equipment that could is self driven + USB-C . Much better than stupidly expansive lemo connectors that can have wrong polarity and breaks far to easy.
