    That makes me less apprehensive. Did you fly it with mattebox and rails?

    flew mine, fully rigged on a pilot on a music video all day a few weeks ago. the pilot is perfect for this camera and because both the rig and the camera are so light, i was able to fly it all day long with zero fatigue.

    ..fully rigged is a FF, Lomo Cine lens MB and Rails?

    Personally I think my 5d plus all the toys is at its max

    (tranvideo monitor, hocus, rails, vlock, no MB)

    Could see the FS bare but not fully rigged

    Makes me wish I had a scale in my apartment so I could weigh the kit out. Going to attempt to fly it with rails and MB tomorrow night for a test run...but I'm most likely going to go with just the camera and taping on an ND to the lens.

    I don't have the Pilot, but I have the Glidecam HD4000 mounted to the steadicam arm and vest. Considering the weight limit is similar between the Pilot and HD4000 and I was able to fly my rigged setup(FS100+Rails+ZeissLenses+Shoot35Mattebox+NDFi lters) which I weighed in at around 10 lbs, I think you should be okay as long as you keep the weight near the limit. You might even be okay with going over the limit a tiny bit.

    RIG = FS100, Canon 24-70L, zacuto baseplate/rods. No FF. we just stayed wide and kept distance to talent within the DOF.

    The purpose of the vest and arm is nothing more than to take the weight of the mounted cam ( in very rough terms...... ) asides from letting you use your body to fly it.
    Yes yes of course, you just need to find a way to get a better grip on the handle part.

    Well I was able to fly this halfway decently with rails, mattebox, and filters in a test last night. It's at the very top of the weight range for the pilot, but for the simple tracking shot I need to shoot on Sunday it works.

    Having a hell of a time finding dynamic balance though!
