Here's an interesting though maybe not entirely accurate link for the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of labor statistics as it relates to the occupation of camera operators and editors for film and TV.


"Other camera operators sit on cranes and follow the action while crane operators move them into position. Steadicam operators mount a harness and carry the camera on their shoulders to provide a clear picture while they move about the action."

This is my favorite part I think:

"Camera operators and editors working in motion picture production also may work long, irregular hours."

Thanks Robert!
