Anthony Bourdain No Reservations?

Did anyone watch the venice episode? some of the shots had some nice dof going on. then i saw the attached production shot. could that be a letus or other adapter? I know last season they shot on sony v1u.

Looks like a Letus to me, possibly with the same camera.

Anyone know what the stabilization rig is? A Steadicam Flyer?

Looks like a Letus Extreme on a stepped rods system. There is a red thing on left front whiich is not standard Letus so I think it has been tricked up a little, possibly a tally light added or an illuminated run switch brought forward to the front into a donkey-proof visible location for the operator or camera assistant to observe if the motor is switched on.
