Hello Boyd,

there is only one old typo left, the costs of development have been soooo high...

...but in filmbusiness theres always a solution and you have to improvise sometimes...

...but thank you for your first reply. Especially the first words...;-)

No other wishes?

Hello Keith,
the price range is depending on what you want, because these babies are modular style, you can add, what you want, rotating, vertical, bigger (4x5.65") or smaller (4x4"). And if you go to ready-to-use-packages, you have only to decide: 1, 2, or three stages, from around 200$ to around 340$.
But have a look on the website www.geardear.com , and see the pictures. I think, it says more than words...

Keith: Is it complicated to find the prices of the pieces? Please let me know, one of the reasons Im posting here is to find out your wishes and changes. It takes time for me to answer, because its not my native language...

I saw the site, and saw the two options- 4x4 and 4x5. I clicked on 4x4, saw the exploded diagram, and a link to download a form to email in for a price.

I'm just interested in where the price range lies. It seems to be more thought out than the Indie matte. and even thouse are in the $200-$300 range I think. A lot less than the Century, but also nowhere near as functional.

And going back, I checked a couple more pages, and found the prices. Thanks.
