I know Tiffen has one upcoming for pro-sumer camera rigs. That is useless to me.
I disagree completely. Though I don't blame you for looking for something else. lift capacity of the rig doesn't change physics. All the same of which apply to big rigs and small rigs.
Other than setting up a one on one with Robert Starling (who is in Vegas) I don't know of anything else that would fit the bill. I would trust Starling with mylife, my wife, and everything in-between.
Well, my hypothetical wife.
ETA: Just occurred to me that you would need a rig for Starling's workshop

I have multiple rigs and have access to others. Contact me if you'd like to discuss a private one-on-one workshop or small private group in Vegas or in your city.

Our esteemed colleague is entirely correct. The operational form, physics, aesthetics of Steadicam operating are applied across the board. You do the same things with your brain, hands, feet and body whether the rig flies 16 pounds or 56 pounds. ( Of course, your feet will be a bit more tired with the latter than the former ).
Keep an eye on our Steadicam Workshops web site for the latest schedule.
Best to all,

A violin and double-bass are both stringed instruments, but the physicality and skillsets needed to master one or the other--though closely related--are not identical.
