Very excited to get my GINI rigs today.
As I have ordered 2 rigs, I mixed and matched to modify my Zacuto Striker to look like a mini Crossfire.
The GINI rigs are incredibly well made and the new handle designs are very comfortable to hold. For the price, they are worth more bang for the buck compared to more expensive well known brands like Zacuto or Red Rock. Though I must add, the rigs don’t come with instructions, allen keys or lifetime warranties like Zacuto or other well known manufacturers. Quality wise they are on par with the best out there.
Here’s my own custom rig with the CineFocus R2 follow focus unit.
Get your GINI rigs here on ebay. Bidding strategy – the prices listed on the Ebay shop can be ridiculously high and some people including me have paid for it. You can try to bid for “bid offer” rigs for a very low price (perhaps 1/4 to 1/5th of the original price) and you may even win the bid. Don’t get into a bidding war at the last minutes, hold your ground, the GINI ebay store has more rigs to sell and even if you lose the bid like I did for one, I was offered another one immediately, so don’t raise your initial bid price.
You can also order your GINI rigs at this website. Shopping cart only works on Internet Explorer and registration required. Prices there are way lower, however watch out for the shipping prices and it appears they deliberately list a limited number of rig combos.
