Hi everybody.

I was just wondering what camera was used on Jimmy Muro's steadicam in the film Any Given Sunday?

Looks like he used 200ft magazines aswell.

Thanks in advance.

Most of the DVD behind the scenes show him flying an SL cine (with 200ft loads) on his modified running rig. Im sure he only used this rig for the actual football games: he probably used a lightweight 2 or an xl on his Pro for normal stuff.

For the running shots...

He used his personal Robings SL camera (based on a 2C, a pre SL-Cine set up) with his SK prototype/PRO Lite rig. Using the SK Vest and Arm.
He used this set up extensively on "True Lies" and "Strange Days".

I have a picture somewhere...

I think by the time of shooting of "Any Given Sunday" he was using his second generation SL Cine body. I bought his "Strange Days"/"True Lies" SL prototype in '98. I still loving watching the opening of "Strange Days" with that insane point-of-view running stuff knowing that I own the little guy that shot that, myown work with it has been a bit more pedestrian. It's a killer camera for that type of shooting. The picture Erwin posted a little while back of that body on top of the Mini is the one in question (with 400 ft mags on it).
