I'm having problems with those long wide open shots at very very slow speed with very distant subjects or without subjects like long corridors (no subjective) and with side tracking low speed shots. (Dolly kind shots with an ending Steadicam movement).
Normally work on TV so I'm wired with those huge Triax most of the time. That's makes everything more difficult. I've noticed that walking backwards on lateral movements is much more stable for me, but sometimes I can't with that crossover Triax cable on my or when any swicth could be a compromise.
A Western Dolly for very slow shots could help?
I know, removing Triax cable could be an ideal and a way to improve everything but TV directors and Video Operators offers a lot of resistance about this. I'm talking about TV series not live shows.
How to improve these kind of shots? No matter if Triax or not!
