For those that do not know, the Steadicam* is actually a combination of several large pieces of equipment, worn on the operator's body that support the camera.
The design of the equipment allows for the operator to walk and move about, without translating his or her footsteps or other vibrations into the lens, and subsequently the shot.
There is plenty of information on the Internet about how the Steadicam works, how it is operated, and what it is like to be an operator. A simple search engine query will return
thousands of results.

*"Steadicam" is actually a brand name trademarked by The Tiffen Corporation (www.tiffen.com). Today there are many other
highly reputable manufacturers that make stabilization equipment to perform the same function. However, Steadicam being the first of its kind, its name has become synonymous with
all brands of equipment in the industry.
