We all know the Magliners for saving our back in transportation of cameragear, but there are a lot of different brands coming up with new carts. From the more expensive Innovativ to the newer, cheaper Adicam or Filmcarts.
What film cart do you use or do you recommend?
Personally, I own a Magliner Junior and an Innovativ Scout 37 NXT - the Magliner was my first cart and I would say its my "daily driver" - I bring it with me if I'm 2nding or 1sting and I prefer it over my Innovativ... I bought the Innovativ specifically for a month-long travel job where we were heading between multiple countries and had to fly with it - I performed relatively well for that gig, but it got super beat up and is a little too flimsy for my tastes, which is unfortunate considering the price tag... A couple weeks ago I put in a pre-order for the new Yaeger which is going to ship to me in mid-May. Its supposed to fold up like my Innovativ, but its very rigid and 52" long (a "Senior" size).
if anyone is after a new cart, there is a new innovativ group buy on the recently announced voyager evo/nxt which is replacing the scout.
i have worked with a Yaeger and Magliner. but i don't own one. i bought the Rubbermaid one with the idea to build it out and have at least some sort of cart to use. I never got to it, but now building my own cart ( designed like the Adicam/Inovative carts) with the flight case locks. i don't need much and as a first cart i think this will fit well in my line of work, i don't really see any reason to buy a 2000/3500 $ cart right now. but if i would need to upgrade i would go with an Inovative. the easy to collapse feature is a big deal for me as i drive a small car :D
