Fave TV #2 The Best Steadicam Shot In The World Ever

27 seconds of GOLD. From Eurovision 2009.

DIY Steadicam - Flying Camera Support

Garret Brown's original Steadicam® is an icon that revolutionized filmmaking. Being the first and the best, it naturally and justifiably commands a premium price. It is for this reason that homemade DIY Flying Camera Supports have been around since at least 1977, just one short year after Mr. Brown's invention.

Link to the video here - love how to illustrate it they use a clip from... The Omen



UPDATE -- 19 Feb 2014

Well, technically, this ain't no Steadicam - it's a Gimbal.
(Should it ever come to pass... definite name for my third child)

But you run around with it like a steadicam...
