I tend to agree, but Sharegrid's the same way and so are brick-and-mortar rental houses. If you have your own insurance policy they don't charge you for that (worth it). But the shipping ought to be clear in all cases.
This was sort of inevitable. It's probably not bad for filmmakers, but I do like competition and this does remove some of that. So, yeah, it's good Sharegrid exists.
Wow that test shot makes me wonder about the pole. It's nowhere near as smooth and nice as the ones on the manufacturer's website. Not dinging you guys, just it looks like this is something where you really need a lot of practice and the "right" camera and gimbal setup for it to work.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks so.
I say 9 months.
I'm really rooting for this one. It looks rad.
