This is the main reason why a good steadicam operator is well paid for the professional job they do.

Then you also need some time to understand that using a mechanical or hybrid steadycam gimbal as a real professional, means that you have to learn that is for slow speed movements, its not for running like crazy as you mistakenly see on many youtube videos.

 

It is very common to see that when you put a steadycam to a person that never put one on his body, one of the first things they want to do is to run, and thats the first mistake to avoid, it is not for that.

 

To avoid that you need to calm down, take a deep breath, it also requires to have some control about breathing, to be concentrated on framing the shoot, specially due to the liberty you will have to move everywhere with a hybrid steadycam gimbal camera stabilizer.

 

You will also need to learn how to move and walk, how to keep the distance between you and the subject, then you must also consider the effects of lights and reflections, zooming, panning, tilting, the audio noises, and more, and when the more accessories you add more things needs to be controlled by the steadicam operator.

Without any doubts the best steadycam today is the new 8 axis hybrid gimbal steadycam camera stabilizer, a mix of electro mechanic camera support, best of both worlds.

Specially designed to bring absolute freedom of movement to the camera operator without camera vibration or shakes. 

 

The new line of hybrid steadycam gimbal camera stabilizers are powered by brushless motors that will keep the camera perfectly leveled on all axes as the operator walk, run or moves the camera.

Our new line of 8 axis hybrid steadycam gimbal camera stabilizers are a dream come truth. 

 

This is the main reason why those who had previously bought a 3 axis gimbal stabilizers, are now buying the new 8 axis hybrid steadycam gimbal camera stabilizers.

What do Steadicam operators do?

A Professional Steadicam operator is trained and experienced based on the practical skills and coordination earned through practical work experience. Technology changes rapidly, so you must be prepared to continue learning.

Right now the future of the camera stabilization are the new hybrid steadycam gimbals camera stabilizer a mix between mechanic and electronics best of both worlds.

A steadicam operator also needs some basic knowledge of all camera options and lenses, along with knowledge of available accessories, such as remote focus systems, video transmitters and receivers, and any specialized equipment designed and used by other operators.

 

It is a physically demanding job, so it is useful to know the stretching and positioning techniques such as Pilates, Yoga or Martial Arts to help avoid injuries.

Steadicam operators are responsible for the technical configuration of the steadicam system and the balance of the camera. They contact the director, the cinematographer (DoP) and the actors to set up and take the required shots.

 

A professional steadicam operator usually works with a camera assistant to ensure that the shots are focused, and with the first assistant director to ensure that the choreography of the shot is done without problems.

Steadicam operators are specialists within the camera department and can be hired daily to take specific shots within a scene, or employed as camera operators who specialize in steadicam camera stabilizers.

The professional steadycam camera stabilizer mechanic or hybrid were specially designed to bring absolute freedom of movement to the camera operator without camera vibration or shakes.

 

The double shock absorber arm in conjunction with the vest and the sled or center post with the gimbal handle isolates the operator's body movements, allowing the camera to move very smoothly, while remaining stable.

 

Many specialized steadicam operators have invested in their own equipment, and are usually requested by directors or DoP.
