What is Steadicam?

Steadicam is a camera stabilizer for motion picture cameras. It isolates the operator’s movement through its many axises, allowing for a smooth, isolated, yet precise shot even when the camera moves over an irregular surface. It also allows for long smooth shots that can move through practically any space maintaining a completely steady and isolated look. Our “Big Rig” can carry camera packages ranging from 10-70+ lbs and also boasts all axis’s of stabilization, unlike both of those limitations of a 3-axis gimbals. Another great advantage of this system is that it glides through space with the arm and vest attached to the operator, therefore needs no track, unlike a camera dolly, making it the perfect tool for long lasting shots.
