Steadicam at the British Open

This seemed like a great application for the hands free transporter. If the operator is out there, I'm sure there is some interest in hearing some details from this shoot.

How are you?
The Op is Simon Wood and he uses the MK-V Nexus with MK-V/Hummingbird LCD. He does have the PRO arm and the Klassen Vest.
The handsfree is the XT and he has the klassen Hard-mount. (which is very nice)
Unfortunately - Simon like most of my clients is so busy and never visits here.
next time I speak to him I will ask him to post.
Hope this is some help.
All the best

I got to meet and work with Simon last month here in Philadelphia and he was a cool fella. He mentioned to me he sort of stopped visiting the forum regularly when things got so negative over the past years.
[and, sadly, I assume this happened with more then a few people]
I hope Simon visits the forum again someday?
It is nice to have another international voice? but it is also cool to hear from someone who does steadicam on big live broadcasts on a regular basis. Throw in doing it off a segway/Handsfree, and I am sure he has lots to offer our lil? steadicam forum.
And Simon, when you do read this, my brother even called me up when he was watching the British Open and he told me the steadicam on the segway was one of the coolest things he had seen.
I was off doing NASCAR so I never got to see it, but let us know when the next big Handsfree Steadicam show is, and I will DVR it for sure!

My view on this is that the genuine comunity should rise against the 'others' and put this forum back on track. When people stop posting it only serves to censor the comunity and this puts out a bad image of us all.
PS I fully understand people being to busy to post and I wish I was in this possition more often.
