Most amazing thing I've seen. Not sure that is a safe or recommended move.

Nice find Afton! Now we need his POV shot for steadishots.org

That is the most amazing camera move I have ever seen!!!

Ok, it's like ballet, gymnastics and soccer all rolled into one. What an amazing athlete! Did I say amazing?!

I am humbled and inspired... now I must see that shot.

Unbelievable. Zero fear. I wonder how many times he had to do it at quarter speed to build up the balls to do it like that! Not only is the "dismount" insanely good, the zoom that follows and the operating throughout is extremely good. Wow.

Now to find the proper nickname for this new technique...."The Death Wish"? - segway stepoff at full speed

Pretty f-ing cool. But what kind of lame wireless focus system were they using? What did it have a 10' range so the AC had to run along side instead of sitting near the stage?

Pfff, everytime I replay this piece, I am in awe and my heart skips a beat! Amazing operating and courage!
Another level reached! I would not be able to pull off such a shot, I am sure about that.

I wonder how his arrangements are in case he would crash.....

Amazing, very challenging and scary. :blink:

That's assuming it wasn't a case of the AC also wanting some of the glory of sprinting around the stage :)

I guess the only way to do that is to have someone else control the segway? Looks like he's jumping off while it's still moving. Even my ass clinched watching it!
