"[Steadicam] comes at the expense of operator fatigue, resulting in short takes, long rest breaks, or sloppy work when muscles begin to fatigue."

I'm curious to know more about these "short takes".

Around 5:10 in the video, they also start recommending the device for use as a muscle cart (help lug back lights and gear!), and apparently up to 3 people can fit on it.

One thing is that I seriously doubt this item to hold up in the world of film and TV. What is more disturbing to me is the poor execution of the footage, and at the end of the dvd they all actually talk about how great it looks.

Did I just see the same footage as these guys?

WTF?!

Is this the same guy who's also a member here and has an impressive resume with over three decades of work? Because that, together with this video, doesn't add up.

Yes, one and the same. He's not operating at the beginning of the video, but he is the one that operates the extremely long shot with the split screen of the operator and the actual shot.
