Handheld shooting is the definitely "in"- But Steadicam purist sometimes find it rather on the primitive side. Okay so the kids love the look-but" I have to wear this Genesis on my shoulder for a forty minute fight scene- and - you want me to pop up and down with them?"
(yikes). On SuperBad, my first real experience with the "genocide"we shot all nights and handheld all day. The Suspender really was a back saver- and not only that-when I didn't have the pain to worry about - I found out what sort of tricks this thing could do. It booms silky smooth -like our steadicam arms- it can pan-and I can adjust the tilt to have it "Balance" for fast moving shots. Best of all I didn't have to hand it off to my assistant in between takes. I could wear the genesis/ Toaster all damn day.
The Sony Glasstron kicks ass for doing shots you could never execute in normal hand-held. See walterklassen.com/suspender for more info. My company www.gocamerasupport.com has TWO of these kits so I can sell one of them and be able to afford the "stimulus package" Email me on firstname.lastname@example.org with any ques-more photos and info. I paid about 5500.00 for both complete sets that fit any camera- I'm asking $2985.00
