the Steadicam story:

The invention of the steadicam revolutionized the use of cameras in film and television productions. It allows a cameraman to film while he is moving without the image blurring through the steps.

The Steadicam story began in a garage in the suburbs of Philadelphia in the early 1970s. The inventor Garrett Brown, an ambitious and passionate cameraman who always saw himself as a "tinkering late hippie", lived more in the garage at that time than in the house that belonged to it. His specialty was taking pictures with a handheld camera.

He wondered why it shouldn't be possible to walk or run with camera in hand?

The challenge was to translate the complex behavior of the human eye into a technical device. A stabilizer was needed.

With the Steadicam, in addition to inertia (static force of inertia and dynamic moment of inertia), the decoupling of the direct connection between the cameraman and the system also provides stabilization. The tripod segment is only connected to the cameraman just above the center of gravity via a cardanic suspension. In this way, unintentional rotational movements by the cameraman are largely kept away from the camera system. Intentional but too fast pans are compensated for by larger radii in the arrangement of the counterweights (instead of just a vertical mass distribution, part of the mass is shifted to the front and a matching part to the rear.)

The (usually considerable) additional weight of the system is connected by means of a special, movable arm to a carrying vest (rig) that encompasses the entire fuselage and takes the weight. The support arm usually consists of two parallel static articulated arms (parallelogram guide), which hold the camera at half the height of the arm deflection by means of strong springs tailored to the weight of the camera. In addition to the simple design, the spring-loaded, isoelastic support arm also largely decouples the vertical components of the cameraman's running movement. For example, if the cameraman climbs up one step, the camera follows the movement with a smooth, smooth delay.

With the support arm, the Steadicam can also be swiveled out to the side, parallel to the torso axis of the cameraman, which also enables camera positions far away from the body's center of gravity. The resulting torque is transmitted through the vest to the cameraman's spine. The further the cameraman swings the steadicam away from his torso, the greater the torque. With the Steadicam, annoying rotations of the camera as such are avoided, and the height of the camera above the ground can be kept almost constant thanks to the comfortable handling (free of effort for the cameraman's arms and hands and therefore pain and fatigue-free). However, strain on the cameraman's spine is inevitable. A new type of vest, also called "Walter Klassen Harness", attaches the carrying point to the back of the body and thus avoids stress on the spine.

Due to the suspension of the center of gravity, the Steadicam Rig is extremely touch-sensitive and the camera can no longer be operated by hand. The most important functions of the camera (focus, aperture, etc.) can therefore be operated via a remote control. A very bright monitor mounted on the rig is used for image control. The image can also be transmitted live on a monitor (e.g. for the director or for live broadcasts). Source code / evidence Wikipedia
