This EFP HD package is good because it includes everything you need to start operating.
The sled is 12/24 volt capable, uses the same camera power connector as Tiffen. (Additional camera cables not included in this package can be purchased from Tiffen or you may have custom cables made by an independent engineer with the included schematics.) It is all new materials except the 3A gimbal which is tested and rebuilt with new bearings and the original 3A / EFP stage that is checked for play and adjusted if needed. It has a dual battery mount for Anton Bauer batteries. Includes anvil style case and Pelican case that everything fits in.

** The Luna arm is made by Robert Luna who used to work for Cinema Products (the original Steadicam manufacturer), they closed their doors in 2000. Robert knows more about arms than anyone and when he lost his job he decided to manufacture the 3A/EFP arm but added upgrades where he always thought they should be and also used his own version of the springs that allow you to have a weight range of 15-70 pounds. All the used efp and 3a arms have 5 different springs that are not easily changed by the consumer so whatever spring you buy with an old arm you are stuck with.
If this is your first rig or you are just concerned about keeping costs low I would consider this package. Buying a used EFP that needs things fixed here or there, rewired for 24 volt, replacing the gimbal for a heavier one, having to rent an arm for very light cameras or very heavy ones can end up costing more than what this package sells for.
The package also comes with the 6-day workshop manual, EFP manual, Master Series manual, pin-out diagrams of each connector and schematics of all camera power cables except the RED.
In addition, I will include a half-day (4 hour) crash course on balancing the sled and operating. (You must supply camera.) Please inquire BEFORE purchase.
