Steadicam Pilot

I’ve been interested in getting a steadicam for a couple of years now, I tried a steadicam merlin at the 2008 Broadcast Expo in London, but with so many other things I’ve had to invest in it was put on hold. That was until last week when I decided to buy a used Steadicam Pilot that was going for a good price. I know this is going to be one piece of kit that will take some time to master, but I’m hoping to to have it by the end of this week and take it to Latvia with me to get some interesting shots of the Harley event. I’ll post more about that when it gets here.

Not sure what a steadicam is or does? Watch the inventor Garrett Brown demonstrating the Pilot for B&H.

    Hey Paul

    Have been checking in every now and then to see what you are up to (found your site while researching Cinevate rails) some very nice work!

    Exciting to hear that you managed to get your hands on a Steadicam Pilot, where exactly does one manage to find a second hand one????!!!!

  1. Hi Paul,

    I know this is an old post but found it doing my Steadycam Pilot research. Thanks for the blog post, much appreciated since I am also looking for a used Pilot.

    Hi Paul, I know you have got one already and I hope you don’t mind me posting this here but it sounds appropriate. I am selling my Steadicam Pilot – if you can pick it up yourself in London I’ll give you a couple of hours training with it – I am currently flying the C300 on it
    Price will be £1900 + vat . Comes complete with transport bag. The only thing you’ll need to ad to the cost is a V- lock battery

      • If Fred’s is sold then let me know as I’ve decided to sell mine too, £2,000 including a really nice steadicam stand.

        Just use the contact me page if interested.
