NAB 2017: Steadicam Updates

I stopped by the Steadicam booth to chat with Rey Reyes about their latest product updates. This year they’re showing off the finalized production version of the Steadimate, an adapter designed for connecting typically handheld gimbals to a traditional Steadicam vest and arm.

The Steadimate removes the weight from the operators arms and allows them to focus on framing and executing the shot. This helps prevent physical exhaustion, which in turn helps prevent mental exhaustion, which is key to operating at peak performance.

We were also lucky enough to be joined by the inventor of the Steadicam himself, Garrett Brown, along with legendary operator Jerry Holway to talk about the new X-3 upgrade. The X-3 is a third arm section that allows for increased booming range, allowing the operator to get both lower to the ground and higher over their head than ever before. You’ll also see talented operator Lisa demonstrate the range enabled by the X-3.
