Exhauss Exoskeleton L'Aigle Anyone?

Just wondering if anyone in the DVInfo.net community has had any up close and personal experience with an Exhauss Exoskeleton L'Aigle?

I'm trying to decide between it and an EasyRig with added Serene arm, but I have to admit that what I'm seeing online in demos and interviews looks as though the Exhauss is the way to go.

What do you guys think?

Well, never mind. I'm pretty certain that I'll be going with the EasyRig.

Thanks anyway!

Re: Exhauss Exoskeleton L'Aigle Anyone?

I've used both kinds, I'd much more prefer the exo skeleton style over an easyrig set up.

However it depends a lot more on your personal preferences and your needs, so I'd highly recommend renting both and giving them a whirl.

Easyrig for instance is better if you need your hands free between shots, or if going over tricky terrain where you'd prefer a free hand in an emergency in case of a full vs being locked into the exoskeleton suit.

An easyrig could in a pinch be used by a solo shooter, but it would be practically impossible for you do the same with an exoskeleton setup without an assistant or two.

However, I found the exoskeleton suit to in my opinion perform better in smoothing out a little the up/down and more motion when trying to walk with it vs an easyrig (though neither does so completely, you'd want a segway for that). Ditto exoskeletons make more sense to me when you *do* want to add vertical movement in during a shot.
