Hey Timothy, google the steadicam operators handbook.

Written by Jerry Holway.

A nice looking revised edition is about to come out also.

It's not out yet (it would have been a huge surprise to me!) I was told September, but I'm not sure if that date still holds - I'm a bit behind on some things I owe Focal...

I massively recommend Jerry's book. I had been operating in ignorant bliss for years until I read the book. I know a bit more what I am doing now. Its fantastic for operators at any level.
