The Steadicar was designed to be used with a Steadicam, and now combined with 3-axis brushless gimbal camera rig set ups such as the Stabe One, it gives almost instant expert shots to operators.
Combining the Steadicar with the Stab One opens up a whole new field of possibilities. It becomes easy to follow actors on foot, and then on board of the Steadicar. It is now possible to vary the height of the lens while moving, thanks to the hydraulic crane.
It’s easier and faster to use than a classic shot on tracks.
The operator’s seat is motorized and allows a 210° rotation. The arm system, specially designed by Walter Klassen, makes it possible for both right and left handed camera operators to adjust the height of the arm, giving them the optimum position for getting smooth shots.
