I'm thinking of buying one of those, not for it's use, but to be happy, That guy is Super Happy about that rig, all smiles!!

AMAZING HOW FAST things are duplicated over there, we're gonna have to revert to covering new inventions in black cloth to ward off knock off's. And have private closed door reunions to show of our wares.

I wonder if these "Happy Owners" have "Steadicam®" tattoos in English as a tramp stamp or whatever to look "Western"...

I guess they know even though the system is amazing, the companies they are stealing design rights from don't have the capital to mount a full on lawsuit over there. We should start Huge stores called "Chinese goods" and have everything sold in there Made in the USA, then Export the stuff !

Something to consider:

1. That operator is standing on his right foot for some reason, maybe tiptoes on his left foot to maintain that position... or...

2. The operator is standing on both feet, square to the photographer, and the post is actually several degrees pitched left. If this is true, it's actually advertising that the device doesn't work. That leads me to believe they adjusted the photograph in Photoshop to make the post vertical, leading back to option 1's bizarre posture.

Oh well. Someone will buy it, and 6 months from now, some low budget film will chastise me for not having that gear in my kit after someone had it on another shoot. Vicious cycle, I tell you...

Louis,
this guy has been my model for many years, nice to see he's back on here!
I always wondered what the title for that photo should be; never been able to decide between " Bottom heaviness", "monitor wonders" or "cables freedom".
LOL
