I liked the second video best as it was more interesting to watch.

It's great that you have made a working stabilizer. It teaches you a lot about it's correct set-up when you make one.

One word of advice...Use your control hand as little as possible. If you are in constant contact with it your video will suffer. This is especially true of lighter rigs like ours.

Practice, practice, practice. One you feel like your getting good try zooming in a bit and then watch you shots. It's a whole new world.

Read all of Charles Papert, Charles King, Mikko Wilson, and the other steadicam operators posts on different subjects. They are very good at helping! (Sorry I missed a bunch of operators who regularly contribute to this and other forums.) They lead full lives but still have time to help us. We owe a lot to them!!!

He's only mostly sDEADy.

sort of from "The Princess Bride"
