The Tiffen Co. has unveiled the Steadicam G-70x2 Arm.

Building on the G-70 line, the G-70x2 includes features and functions that enhance reliability, durability, safety, setup speed and smooth stabilization.

Capable of lifting 13-70 pounds, the arm offers a 29" boom range and several operating updates. The dual bearing mounted ¾" arm post, with tool-less rotational locking and drag control, promotes quick adjustability from a solid lock-off to free rotation of the arm post (even when changing posts). A new, rigid, pivoting steel socket block also offers no-tools adjustability; this eliminates the flex inherent in traditional rod ends, enabling faster setups and on-the-fly adjustments without removing the arm. It also prevents the operator from mistakenly over-extending the rod ends.

Additionally, the kickback link, which gets the arm further out of the way as the sled crosses the operator’s body, now features a multi-position socket block to locate the arm in the most convenient position.

The G-70x2 also features lower-profile arm links that make it appear more transparent and less intrusive to operator movements. Operation is smoother thanks to a complement of low-friction pivot-point bearings, updated arm-bumper design and other details, including the rubber-gripped Lift and Ride knobs. The design features Metric assembly components for easier service.

The G-70x2 comes with a soft-sided carry bag, a tool for user servicing and a three-year warranty on parts and labor.

The Steadicam G-70x2 Arm lists for $12,995.
