I fly a Canon 7D usually with a 16-35mm lens on a Pilot. I've take a class or two and developed "some" skills but I really hit the wall (so to speak). I've watched a ton of videos online and even dissected The Steadicam Operator's Handbook. I typically shoot weddings and events that are VERY run and gun with little time for adjustments. I have to nail the shot the first time, most of the time. Like others I still need help balancing as well as with technique. Is there anyone in the New York area that does any private training? I need someone who really knows what they're doing to help get me up to speed and even suggest things I may not have even considered. Thanks.

Hi Erik,

Thanks for the info. I don't know if Afton is active on the forums so I guess I can google him and see if he's interested / available.

Cheers
