ebay easyrig flowcine ultracore serene arm easy rig review

Want a review on those cheap $300-$600 easy rigs you see for holding Ronins and Movis on Ebay? I took that bullet for you, and let me tell you, they aren't even worth $100. I bought one for kicks and it literally lasted 4... FOUR... FOUUUUUUUR days of shooting before the whole tensioning mechanism came loose. It took about an hour for us to fix in the shop, but it's only temporary and won't last a day. Time to try to get our money back via credit card!

I'm not saying a "real" one is worth the $3000... because for the parts and tech, that's a pretty big rip mark up as well.. just that the $500 aren't worth more than $50.

Run, run away!

Sorry for loading the first post with keywords for SEO. These are so crap that I'm hoping people looking for reviews find that easily.

In no way are any of these worth more than $100-$200 in parts and labour. But again I don't think an actual Easyrig is worth that much more either so...
