Ready Rig VEGA

Key features of the Ready Rig VEGA:

  • Improved stabilization of over 70%

  • Innovative elastic counterbalance system for smooth action and weight support

  • Fingertip control throughout the entire boom range, providing consistent and even weight support at both low and high ranges of the system.

  • Ability to stow and unstow the ProArms with ease

  • VEGA Arm Clamps for setting and returning to tension settings and quick, on-the-fly adjustments

  • Backside handgrip for guidance during tricky shots

The Ready Rig VEGA Upgrade v2 is a counterbalance module that installs onto the Ready Rig GS + ProArm and replaces the GS bungee cords. This next-generation upgrade offers improved stabilization of over 70% compared to the Ready Rig GS + ProArm. With its innovative elastic counterbalance system, the VEGA provides smooth action and weight support, allowing your camera package to float weightlessly at all ranges. The VEGA v2 also significantly reduces footsteps producing a smoother, more stable shot.

The VEGA upgrade gives you the ability to stow and unstow the ProArms, and the VEGA Arm Clamps allow you to set and return to specific tension settings. These clamps also enable quick, on-the-fly adjustments to the tension without the ProArms shooting back.

VEGA also includes a backside handgrip, which allows a spotter to guide you through even the trickiest shots.

The VEGA Upgrade is user-installable and comes with all of the required hardware and tools. The installation process only takes about 30 minutes, so you can easily upgrade your camera setup on your own
