picture is of Dave Hillmer in 1976 with the original Steadicam and a TK-76 camera

i think this show was the Captain and Tennile Show

He was also on the first show ever to use a steadicam on a TV show, the 1976 Emmys

We don't bump into things, things bump into us! And for the record I have never fallen down, although the earth has fallen up to meet me on two occasions.....
