NFL steady cam
on Aug 27, 2008 at 3:25:05 pm

Hi,

I was watching the Making of NFL films and noticed a camera operator using what looked like a light weight camera on a steady cam, which was also attached to what looked like a monopod. What impressed me the most was that he was able to run along with the action. I'm assuming if he is shooting the game he is using an HD camera, does anyone know what kind of camera & harness could have been used?

have not seen program you are referring to but I bet it is a home made rig. I think a company called DV RIG makes something similar. It is probably a lite weight rod that is attached to the mattebox rods and then the rod is sitting in a belt holster around their waist. It is used to help support the front of the camera. They normally use long lenses so that helps them for longer focal lengths. I use a lot of NFL camera operators on my show "Friday Night Lights"
I'll enquire as to what rig you are speaking of.

cheers

The best place to get info on Steadicam operators is http://www.steadicamforum.com

All the pro's and Elite operators blog there and know who did what and where.

Cheers,
