I recently picked up my Glidecam HD-4000, which suits me very well!
My interest in film-making is primarily Extreme-Sports, and therefore i seek advice, as i want to multiply the options of filming.
I've been simply amazed by videos, using steadicam&rollerskates for some extra smooth images, which somehow, in my opinion, gives the videos a rather artistic & elegant aesthetic.
So here's my question: Does anybody got any experience with rollerskates and a steadicam? if yes; What would be the optimal rollerskates? 4x1-wheeled or 2x2-wheeled? Some simple advices aswell would be lovely!
note: I'm using the Canon 7D.

D.P. Gale Tattersall said he was so impressed with this idea/video it landed Vinny a gig on HOUSE TV Series on FOX. (i.e. Glidecam HD4000 and Canon 5D MKII)
Vinny is now involved in touring workshops with Gale Tattersall and Canon, as well as future projects with Glidecam Industries, Inc.
It is all about aptitude and risk assessment(risk vs reward) I also have several ski instructor using Glidecam while skiing.

p.s. I personally am comfortable on aggressive inline skates which have a very low stable base making them good for things like this IF you are so comfortable with them that it becomes second nature.

"He who dares, wins" SAS moto.
Is this the future? I admire the young man who shot this but if this is the way things are going I guess I'm done. These old bones break now and I don't bounce when I hit the ground like I use to.

If you have the skills to do it then fairplay, can't see it replacing mid-full size rigs though, it serves it's purpose, anyone who attempts to do that while strapped into a complete rig with vest and arm is asking for trouble though.....I wouldn't recommend it.
