Recently I picked up a Steadicam Scout system.
It's SDI so I've had to figure out another way to patch through an hdmi signal.
Also this is a 2nd hand kit, and the internal sdi cable has to be replaced.
I tested the blackmagic hdmi to sdi adapter which works well but lead me to finding out about the sled's inner workings weren't working lol.
In the meantime I found a simple solution of running an hdmi cable around the sled itself into my atomos ninja v.
Currently I'm running monitor power at the bottom of the stage from a v lock battery, and at the top using an anker pd26800 patched into the camera and the follow focus motor. I've added on a second smallrig clamp to slot in another anker battery just in case i'd like to power the other parts or swap quickly.
As an additional little thing, I've mounted the wheel of my tilta nucleus n to the handle so that I can get something of a thumb wheel going.
I've got quite a bit more to test but I'll see how it goes and post again here in the devlog.
On a journey. Searching for something. Sharing what's found.
