  1. I am a big fan of Gini Rigs and have previous brought from the usa site with no troubles. But they recently posted on their facebook that they are selling on Amazon now. Its confusing where to buy their stuff from now so I brought their G8 Slider from the Amazon page and got it yesterday. Have not done much hard testing yet but so far looks pretty sick. Will try and get some RAW 5d mkiii footage with it soon :)   Heres the Amazon link if people dont know where to get it from http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=bl_sr_photo?_encoding=UTF8&field-brandtextbin=Gini%20Rigs&node=172282

    No wat is this the bmcc 4k footage. Why are they still keeping it from us?
  3. Installed on my 5d mkiii and its working a treat, thanks for this
  4. I already have one (did a review on this forum here - not the advanced one) so thought i would share this to others.   Taken from their facebook "We are at it again! We are giving away another rig, this time our most popular setup, the Advanced Extreme 17 (worth $499 - http://ow.ly/kax4d). To be in for a chance, like our Facebook page - http://www.facebook.com/GiniRig - and share this post or read the image for alternative ways."   A link to the Facebook post is here - https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=519380728126446&set=a.407518442646009.98779.400859699978550   And here is a link to the Tweet - https://twitter.com/GiniRigs2013/status/324647732327378944   Good Luck and if you win let me know :)   [attachment=474:EXTREME17 Giveaway.jpg]
  5. Yea i just noticed it doesnt last that long. Yea I know looks super cheap then you have to add postage, but still with postage it seems the cheapest and best quality for your money
  6. [quote name='EOSHD' timestamp='1343156929' post='14436'] All that for $399? Wow. What is the follow focus like, working well with the FD? [/quote] I have not brought a lens gear yet, i stupidly forgot to add it to the cart. Your Uk based arent you? They have a UK site now as well - http://www.ginirigs.co.uk/ - not sure how the prices compare but should be the same in pounds im guessing. I think the follow focus is one of the best parts. Little bigger than I expected but feels real smooth and no backlash at all. Not sure what u mean about the ratings Moe. Check on some of their new ebay listings that site is in them - http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Extreme-17-Follow-Focus-Weight-/251115310528?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3a77a38dc0
  7. So I just got my extreme 17 rig from http://www.ginirigs-usa.com/75-new-extreme-17-follow-focus-weight.html and I couldn't be happier! I have heard many good and bad things about gini so did my research about them before ordering. Found they had a new site and brought of there (one listed above) and was surprised that it came in just 3 days from Korea. So it came all in one small box all seperatley packaged as you can see from the photo below. [img]http://www.eoshd.com/comments/uploads/inline/20669/500ee1ccbf502_photo1.jpg[/img] Wasnt quite sure how it went together but just checked a photo out from the site and after a while I got it together. The quality of the parts is just insaine. I have used and owned a few other rigs in my time but nothing even comes close to how good this is made. And the best thing was, this is the cheapest rig I have ever brought! I have another rig at the moment but was very curious about Gini so I got this one. I think i am happy to say I will be selling my other rig now because it doesnt compare at all. [img]http://www.eoshd.com/comments/uploads/inline/20669/500ee3b3bfb0f_photo.jpg[/img] I payed $399 for the extreme 17 in their sale and $85 postage. Pretty steep postage but for under $500 this is the best thing I have brought. Anyone else had any experiences with them?
