I stumbled upon this forum while doing research into steadicams, I've recently started a full time job (kit rental company) which has allowed me to save up enough money for a steadicam. I've been very interested in them for sometime, but they've only just become financially possible for me.
I completed the Tiffen Bronze Steadicam course where I got to grips with the Zephyr, Pilot and Scout. I also have the opportunity to use gimbals like the Ronin and Movi at work. After using both of them I've decided to go with steadicam.
I've been looking at the Zephyr and the Scout but I'm unsure if I need a steadicam that can take large-ish cameras. Obviously I need to start practicing and eventually use it on shoots, but would I be okay with something like the scout or pilot over the Zephyr?
Appologies if I haven't worded this very well.
