I have a few questions as someone who has never had any experience with a stedicam before

1. what is the best rig set up for a beginner? what do i need to buy vest, etc?

2. I have tried to look at some places for equipment but I dont seem to be looking at the right sites. Where does everyone suggest I buy the equipment?

3. Are there any good books for me to be reading right now that might help me learn alittle more?

Any other help would be greatly appreciated.

Vincent, I think that, before you ask these questions, which have been asked and answered countless times, you might really take the time to read everything or at least as much as possible on this forum. And don't forget the archives.

Your questions are so general that it is hard to answer for your specific needs. If you read the forum thoroughly. you will make decisions where you want to go, what to do, on what to concentrate and THEN you can ask specific questions , but related to your situation.

And very important, learn to write the word STEADICAM correct.

Rob :rolleyes:
