Looks like a low mode stick, I just can't see any stabilizating device in there... :blink:

The yellow cable is video and the black one looks to be power. It's pulled tight probably because the cable wrangler wearing the belt couldn't keep up.

That's what I originally thought too Mitch....but since it's a panavised 235 I believe the yellow cable is power since many of Panavisions power cables are yellow. Funny, one of the first things I noticed when I looked at the picture was that cable pulled tight. I can just imagine some grip dragging on the ground behind him.

Maybe it's a "remote tilt stick".

It actually just looks like the middle of a C+ stand screwed into the top of the camera with a monitor mounted on top. I just wonder what advantage this had over low mode.

It actually becomes quite clear as to what is going on when you see the full picture:
