I am currently a camera operator for a regional television station in Manchester England. I am writing my dissertation about the steadicam.

I was wondering if anyone knew of any links to recources about steadicam. I specifically need opinions of steadicam users to use as references within my critique.

Can anyone help me? It would be much appreciated.

Books, online articles, etc. would be a great.

Thanks,

Gr3ggy

Hi Gregg,

Try these links :
http://www.steadicam...soamanual.shtml
You could be especially interested in the "steadicam ressource manual". It doesen't mention the newest models, but still very nice.

http://www.steadicam...le/article.html
Some great articles about steadicam.

http://www.amazon.co...5Fencoding=UTF8
One of the only books about steadicam...
"Steadicam, First Edition : Techniques and aesthetics"

http://www.garrettcam.com/
Garrett Brown's website, there is an interesting documentary film about steadicam.

Loads of steadicam related links here, great ressource !

And of course this forum ;)
Probably the best ressource you can imagine, have a look at the archives.

Have fun !
Nils.

I'm also in Manchester if you need any help.

A good google search for Steadicam will haul up some good stuff, there's a 'Steadicam FAQ' which might answer some of the questions you may have.

Joe McNally might also be a good person to speak to, he has some interesting reading on his website, www.joesjibs.co.uk, click on Steadicam.
