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.
