I've been trying to keep an eye out for any Steadicam Ops. Haven't seen any yet.

I've been trying to keep an eye out for any Steadicam Ops. Haven't seen any yet.

I saw a couple of rigs on stands and a glimpse of one in use. I also saw Afton's old Ultra 1 prototype on a stand.

All the shots looked amazing though.

Everything about the superbowl looked amazing! (Go Giants!) A friend of mine was there doing pa audio and he said he saw Tore shooting at halftime and John Perry shooting the music performances and James Little at NFL Networks booth and of course the amazing Jeff Zachary shot the game itself. I did catch glimpses of another steadicam guy on the sideline but didn't recognize him. NFL Films guy maybe?

All the steadicam work looked incredible!! You make it look so easy when we know its not. Kudos to all the guys there!

I'm not very please seeing vibrations when the op is running!

Otherwise, it was a great show.

Cheers,

Ken Nguyen.

Thanks guys...it was a fun but tiring shoot!

Yes all of the live rigs there (with the exception of my phantom on music performances) were either XCS or pro. I saw the vibration too, but only during game play. Both the XCS and PRO are solid sleds so it might have been caused by a sony plate that worked its way loose during the game.

My setup on performances was a phantom with pro arm and pro vest and when I looked at playback I did not see vibrations during music, even though the sub-woofers were in my face vibrating my eyeballs. It was f***ing loud in there!

Yes I agree, strange combo. It's kind of like putting Donald Trump and Rosie O'Donnell in the same room together. Awkward, but makes great television! (pun intended)
