    It would be good to list some of the equipment featured off on the side like you have done in other classes.. things you have used .. I’m interested in getting a glider and I’m facing a cost versus quality decision without any hands on experience with them. Thinking of renting perhaps to get some experience.

      Whoops.. I intended a say slider.. I’ve been looking at Neewer brands although I’m concerned that the brands you can easily purchase on amazon.. depending on slider length, can be about $300-500 Can.. Those Rhino sliders are quite a bit more.. ranging upwards of $1500. Just concerned about bang for buck and not being let down by the motor or the smoothness of the slide rails.

    1. Hi Scott, thank you. The steadicam is usually reserved for bigger heavier cameras used in live broadcast or cinema films and is a little beyond what we’d expect photographers venturing into film-making to use. The models we’ve shown here handle the type of camera that is usually the first type of entry or transition for stills to moving images. I’ll keep it in mind though as I know someone who has one so maybe we can add it in the future. Thanks for watching this class though, all the best Karl.
