ahhh, finally...the return of the long lost one-handed technique. I love operating above the gimbal in high mode -- it's nice to see someone else using it succesfully!

WOW! I sure am glad that the demo reel clearly demonstrates the possibilities of the steadi/segway combo... :huh:

@eric: did you understand everything he was talking? so for me - because i am from austria, understood everything - it was very hard :blink:

best thing for me was calling the spring arm "sledge" :D

but after seeing this video i feel a more better operator :ph34r:

it starts with explaining the camera. just the lens is about 10.000 euros he says. the special battery is just for powering the monitor about 5 hours. the monitor is larger than the usual ones. with a special wire, thats just made for this. and so it goes on.

just explaining the specials, we others should get as soon as possible i think <_< . hard to translate, but funny to understand :rolleyes:

[edit]
after i have seen this, im annoying about spending money for upgrading our arm to 52 pounds, instead buing this wire ;)

I think we're making too many assumptions and being too hard on the guy. Remember, there's a language barrier. The dude's from GermNay.

I took text from the video and punched it into Alta Vista's translation site: Convert English to GermNan.

"Steadicam" = "Seasick Cam"

For that, I think he did a pretty stellar job. And you have to give the guy props for wearing a bright white hat on stage.

PS - Anybody know of any upcoming Seasick Cam workshops?
