Yes a dual articulated arm is better than a single articulated arm.

Ok so let me ask you if you had to choose between the Indicam and Varizoom's NAVIGATOR which would you choose? I'm using a GL2 for weddings...

Well, Ind!cam is a dual section arm. The Navigator is a one section (and slightly poorley designed) arm.
If I had to choose between them I'd go for Ind!cam.

You know you have some major points there. But what pushes me away is the back pack for indicam...I wish I knew someone who owns it and has used it...Do you know of any demo videos with the indicam being used aside of the ones on the www.indicam.com website?

Mikko,

I'm impressed! Not because of what you said about Ind!cam but that you spelled our name correctly. I don't even do that myself all the time.

I hope you are enjoying Alaska. With the heat wave we have had here in the lower 48 states Alaska looks real good.

All my best,

Tery
Indicam
