These are some extreme pictures of russian DP and steadicam operator Igor Chernykh from shooting of the Soviet film in 1977 (with custom made stabilizer, certainly).

Yes guys, look at this website how people desperate for new techniques but unable to get it officially make their own versions.
Amazing pictures.

and we are talking 20-25 years ago!

Hi all;

Igor's last picture is a factory CP version complete with CP metal logo tag on the sled.

Funny though look at the monitor is above the camera.

The first however many had those but i think everyone figured out looking up as you walked was a bad idea.

Ironically now with new little rigs and LCD screens built into every camera I see the same thing back again.

Janice

Have a fun week. (Those first few pictures are amazing and scary.)

I believe Terry West still has most of a cp-35? It was, I believe, Cinema Product's first production model? The motor for the 2C was in the lower sled AMD the driveshaft ran through the "center post". Good times. We've come a long way baby
