I found a book series called "Advanced Camera Techniques Volumes 1-5" on
B & H Photo's web site including a volume on "Advanced Steadicam Techniques". Any know who wrote it?


here is a link

I own a copy of 'Advanced Steadicam Techniques' on DVD (incidentally it won't play on my DVD player, but it will on my PC). I think it is a good thing to have in your collection. It covers setting up the rig, balancing, some ideas for sequences etc - everything you would expect to cover in a workshop yourself. There are a few good tips and things to remember, although if you are already a successful Steadicam operator, there won't be much on it that is new to you. It isn't difficult to grasp (assuming you know what a Steadicam is :D ) I remember someone saying that they would like to have a workshop with Jerry Holway having seen this DVD, I have to agree with them.

It is worth watching but i really really wish someone would make a decent video. I am surprised really. Come on....

maybe they want to keep their real tricks secret! who can blame them really having spent years and years developing an art they don t want to give it away lightly.

or more likely the people qualified to make such a video are simply too busy on big films/comercials

You can get the video transfered to pal when you get the video. No problem. Or you can do it in an editing program.

Don't blame formats, blame the plugs. It's their fault this time.
