Was watching Miami Vice, season 2 (1985) on DVD. And being used to the rough, shaky look of it's grip dep. I was surprised to see a long steadicam shot on a beach where the camera reveals all the characters of the series working under-cover. It's from season 2, the episode called "Bushido", Dean Stockwell guest starring. The whole episode has quite a lot scenes with steadicam.

Anyone know who operated on this? Didn't find anyting on IMDB.

I worked with a DP a couple of months ago... Checco Varese. He did steadicam on the TV series Miami Vice. There was no billing for steadicam... hell most of the time not even for the operator.

Don't know if he was the operator on that particular episode.

I seem to recall some of Bob Ullands early AC ads featuring him on the set of Miami Vice - not sure which season.
