Sony Z1U, M25u, GV-900, Kona2 and more
Several pieces of used production & studio gear for sale. All purchased new by me, and all in excellent working condition, most in mint physical condition too.
PAYMENT: For all items, Cash preferred, Certified Bank Check, or PayPal (please add 3% to price.) Otherwise no credit cards, no funny munny orders, no personal checks, b.s., etc. Shipping & insurance are additional, pickup in Portland, OR is free & encouraged.
If you include a phone nr. in your email, I will call you if you’d like.
[Note: I will remove items as they are sold, so if you see it here, it is still available.]
PIX AVAILABLE FOR EVERYTHING HERE: www.rocketscientism.com - /FS_WEB/
1. SONY Z1U HDV CAMCORDER (Z1U_A), SN 1110733, with AC VO850 AC Adaptor/Charger, component a/v cable, composite A/V cable, RMT 841 Remote Commander, x1 NP-F570 + x2 NP-F970 Lithium Ion batteries, Tiffen 72mm Haze UV filter, original box.
Overall in excellent physical and operational condition – I am the 1st and only owner, and this was mostly a 2nd camera for when I’d use x2 Z1Us. Batteries are used, but still good. Never used as a deck, as I’ve got one (or two.)
There are O hrs. on the meters due to reset by Sony tech w/ replacement of x3 circuit boards at Sony Service Center in August, 2008, to the tune of $1,091, due to a damaged battery. It has been used only once, briefly, since, as I’m shooting more w/ the Z7U, EX-1, or PDW-350, and don’t shoot all the time as it is anyway. As I remember, there were about 160 hrs. on the Operations meter (16x10) when I checked early July, shortly prior to the board damage, so quite low hrs.; the camera performs perfectly, and is cosmetically in very good to excellent condition. There is a copy of the repair work for the new owner.
Selling both my Z1Us as I am just not using them anymore. It’s been a terrific camera, and has lots, if not most of its life left. I’ve always used the Panasonic AY-DVM63AMQ stock w/ great results, and include a couple to get you rolling in the right direction…
If you are local I encourage to contact and come check out the camera.
$2,440 + shipping.
2. SONY Z1U HDV CAMCORDER (Z1U_B), SN 1119946, with AC VO850 AC Adaptor/Charger, composite A/V cable, RMT 841 Remote Commander, x1 NP-F570 + x2 NP-F970 Lithium Ion batteries, Tiffen 72mm UV Protector.
No printed English Owners Manual (mais bien en Francais!); it’s readily available for download online here:
And no component a/v cable, but also readily available from your local dealer or a number of online retailers, including:
Sony | VMC-30VC Mini A/V Male to 3 RCA Male A/V | VMC30VC | B&H

5. Kona 2 PCI-X capture card with the Aja KBox for use with your Final Cut Pro system, in perfect physical and working condition, barely used at all. If you’re looking at this, you probably know of the Kona 2’s capabilities; if you’d like more info, here’s a link to a review of it:
Edit Review — AJA Kona 2
The KBox greatly facilitates all of your I/O connections. The small 19” rack you see is not included, but available to the buyer for an additional $35.

I don't really think this is an issue of integrity, just whether or not debate over personal opinion belongs in a classified thread. Where we have to be careful is when products are being misrepresented, as this may be unfair to potential buyers. Caveat emptor is always going to be in effect of course; it's up to the buyer to do the research and decide whether one rig is better than another rather than just take the seller's claims at face value.
That said (and since the sale is a done thing), I do feel that Michael's pitch is overly pointed. Claims that one is simply paying for a brand name (and "wasting" or "throwing away" their money) if they were to purchase a Steadicam product are simply not true. There are specific and patented advances under the Steadicam name that have not been equalled by any of the competition in the small stabilizer market. Case in point; the Pilot and Flyer arms incorporate a design principle that makes them far smoother than any other in their class. They require less force to hold at either end of their range and they track more linearly, which will in most cases deliver smoother results. Additionally (and this is not exclusive to the Steadicam models, but it is not incorporated in the Aviator) the dual-axis adjustment at the socket block allows the operator to adjust the pitch of the rig to his/her body which improves form and comfort.
I have seen and tested the VZ products at trade shows and they are decently constructed, but I do not believe them to be as sophisticated and ultimately, high-performing as the Steadicam brand in the most critical aspect. However, it is entirely possible to get great footage out of an Aviator. It all depends on the operator. I have tried many different small format rigs and while I can suffer through the shortcomings and still make shots, it can by and large be a frustrating experience. The mark of a good stabilizer is that it virtually disappears, allowing one to simply aim the camera as an extension of one's own body. Many of the lesser rigs feel like a struggle along the way, and the performance of the arm is a major component.
In the interest of disclosure, I do in fact have some issues with certain aspects of the Steadicam rigs themselves, which I have duly noted in the past (read my Pilot review in the articles section of this site) but they do not specifically relate to the actual flying experience, more about configuration and setup. And lest I be dubbed an "f-boy", my full-size rig has not one piece of Steadicam brand gear onboard, although I do have a Flyer arm and Provid gimbal on my running rig.
