a Wikipedia update, possibly?

Mis-spelled words aside, that thing looks like it came straight out of Battlestar Gallactica... The one from 1979 or whatever... Not the current one with the hot blonde... That's pretty much all I remember from the current version, really... The hot blonde...
What is that thing, anyway?

OMG and whats with the grip handle mounted on the arm ?
Madness it's like they have never even seen a modern day steadicam, and if they have then for sure they never used one.
Criminal just criminal this sort of thing shouldn't be aloud, have you seen who they list on the links section ? I'm sure the likes of NBC and Eurosport wouldn't like that sort of association.

The Muse spoke to the Creator as he gazed out idly at a covered bridge somewhere in Ohio. The Muse spoke......
You shall build the arm as you see the glory of my brilliant engineering before you at this moment. It shall be cantelievered and possess the strength to carry both the mule and the ass, as well as the odd Arriflex Bl-I.
I do love this. A lot. I might need to print out that guy's photo....... I teach a lot of Steadicam Workshops. I can hold up a huge laminated image of this and say, " See this? DON'T DO THIS".

That's the problem with sites like Wikipedia... Sure, it can be an excellent source for info, but many times it's nothing more than promotional material regurgitated as legitimate info. Did anyone see the Stephen Colbert Wiki incident? http://news.com.com/..._3-6100754.html
I wanted to change some Steadicam info there myself, but I figured some people with a little more knowledge of the history should probably do it...

Now Steadycam just redirects to Steadicam.
