Not strictly Steadicam but...
We have released the RiB remote iris controller for video cameras (incl. HD) - details on our website www.unitcine.com.
The RiB system comprises of a HANDSET connected by upto 300M (1,000ft.) of ordinary coax video cable to a CAMERA UNIT - the CAMERA UNIT connects in between the lens and the camera and gives control over the lenses' iris (& VTR stop/start).
The iris can be controlled AUTOmatically, via the control knob on the handset or manually. 'Quickstops' can be used to set temporary iris stops, the iris can also be 'frozen' (see website) and the digital display shows current iris setting.
NB: Please email if you would like to see the FBX or BENZ 5000/4000/RiB - we are planning trips shortly to LA, NY, Germany & Amsterdam.
