Chicken Steadicam!
 
Chickens would make AWESOME steadicams!

YouTube - Chicken Head Tracking

;)

I wonder how I could mount the camera to its head?

Shaun Roemich November 27th, 2008 08:23 AM

Is that where Steadicam got the inspiration for the "Flyer"? Oh wait, chickens can't fly... should have called it the Fryer instead...

I like it! Though I'm not sure if the chicken would get cramped in my gear bag.

Don't they go to sleep if you tuck their heads under their wings?

Now all we need are bigger chickens!

Ali Jafri November 27th, 2008 11:26 PM

who knows, there could be a mini chicken tucked away in every steadicam device...or a mini steadicam tucked away in every chicken!

Drumstick anyone?

Steady Heads
 
I couldn't stop laughing seeing how 'Steady' the poor chicken's head was :))

Allen Plowman November 28th, 2008 03:04 PM

the real question is, can it maintain that steadiness with a 14 pound camera tied to its head? the extra advantage would be eggs for breakfast.

I'm sorry . . . he gave his father a CHICKEN on Father's Day?!

And his sister gave him one as well? I'll bet the guy was annoyed when he saw she'd bought the exact same gift. They really should have talked first.
