I'm looking to hire a steadicam in the UK. I did a search for steadicam hire and came across a few, but this company: Optical Support looked like the best. They have a decent site and say they cater for all levels of production which is good. Has anyone got any recommendations?

What type of rig are you looking for? The options you have depend on what kit you're after. You could also try approaching one of the London based operators, who do a lot of kit hire - try Joe McNally 07973226532.

Both Optical Support and Joe Macnally are great points of contact for Steadicam hire in London. I can recommend them both highly- both have both been very helpful and nice to me over the years!

Second Joe, he'll definitely be able to help.

Or if you're shooting in the Midlands, give me a call on 07980 524136 and I can help.
