I don’t like Steadicams. Don’t get me wrong, I love what can be done with them, I just don’t like using them.

My results were decent as someone who isn’t very good with stabilizers and I look forward to practicing and showing you guys better results. Don’t judge the gear by what you see from this, as I am NOT a steadicam operator. I know I can get much better shots as I improve my operating skills. That said, here is my review as a non-Steadicam operator.
