dude, welcome to the forum.

It is the forum rules to have the real name and not an "internet" name like sharkman otherwise nobody will answere. It is a small word the world of steadicam and we like to know who is talking.

I don t believe there is a downloadable internet tutorial available yet although someone may stand to correct me. Shanghai looks wicked! although I have not been, how is the film bussines doing there? It is predicted to grow massively at the expense of hong kong? is this true?

laigle (a French Steadicam) has a couple of videos on balancing
http://www.laigleparis.fr/regler.htm
and using a steadicam
http://www.laigleparis.fr/manier.htm
They are pretty good, in my in-expert opinion.

Indicam sells a steadicam basics DVD from which you can see a clip demostrating the "Groucho Marx walk" here
http://www.indicam.c...o...8&Itemid=57
The DVD costs $35 plus shipping apparently. I have not purchased it.

If anyone knows any more tutorial videos, please post them!

If anyone is doing a funny walk to operate Steadicam, I would suggest that it is both non-productive, not good for operating nor your health. Stand up and walk as normally as possibly. Groucho?

And get the EFP video training manual from Tiffen for $20.

Please.

Thank you.

There does not seem to be a (real) web site caled "veho.com" which is a shame since I speak Japanese.
Ah veoh.com. I am searching now

There are the first two minutes of the Tiffen EFP video here. It starts real basic but it is very good.
