STEADICAM EQUIPMENT IN MORE DETAIL

James’s rig is a Steadicam® Shadow V® for Professional Film.  Capable of supporting any film or broadcast camera. The Shadow V starts with a 25 to 38 inch (64-97cm) telescopic carbon fibre post coupled to the Ultra2® stage—with patented ± 20º tilt head—and terminating in a new solid base. Outfitted with the Ultra2 Gimbal, 800 nit HD/SDI/SD monitor, dual monitor mounts, frameline generator, and a dual battery mount (12 and 24 volts), the Shadow-V fills the need for a heavy-duty, high-performance rig.

 

James uses the G-70x arm that smoothly carries any load from 13 to 70 pounds (5.8 to 32 kg). With the revolutionary, patented Geo spring geometry optimises performance throughout its lifting range that makes even the slowest camera moves ultra smooth.

His vest is the Steadicam Fawcett Exovest™.  A semi-rigid exoskeletal vest that transfers the weight and torque of supporting a Steadicam system into anatomically appropriate areas, without interfering with natural movement. Compared to conventional vests, the Fawcett Exovest™ is lighter and less constrictive—allowing for better respiration, circulation, transpiration, and movement.

James was trained at Tiffen Steadicam UK
