One interesting/concerning thing mentioned is the Steadicam dovetail/ 19mm bridge base is Patented!
It would be a great system for us if more cameras could quickly and easily swap between studio mode and Steadi.... But apparently that would now violate a patent!

The patent is interesting since it is defined as:
- Patentable subject matter, i.e., a kind of subject-matter eligible for patent protection.
- Novel (i.e. at least some aspect of it must be new)
- Non-obvious (in United States patent law) or involve an inventive step (in European patent law)
How is a steadicam plate Non-obvious? Maybe because they have incorporated it into the studio bridge plate??
