Hi all,

 

I'm relatively new to the vast world of Steadicam. I see a lot of operators wearing gloves and I'm wondering if what the main advantages and reasons are?

(not referring to gloves for cold weather conditions).

Cheers,

Sam.

I usually wear fingerless gloves because of the sweat.  They help to absorb any moisture that results in a slick grip on the gimbal handle, or even on the gimbal itself.  It's a personal preference, much like wearing a sweat band during the extreme summer seasons.
