    Steadicam Question

    Thanks for the replies guys. I'm def. building a dolly system, so that will help with a lot of shots. I also think my father and I are going to make our own glidecam knock-off (oh boy, father-son bonding). If it turns out well enough, I'll post pictures and instructions, and all that jazz.

    Steadicam Question

    I was wondering if anyone knew how to outfit the $14 steadicam for an XL2. The one on the site look like it can't handle the weight, so I was wondering if I just needed to add more counter weight or anything else. Thanks. -Marc

    Quick Question

    My neighbor is really into my prospective career/hobby as a filmmaker, and he has agreed to buy a Canon XL-2 and give me free use of it. Nice gesture, eh? Anyway...I just need to know...how do I get the video from the camera transfered to my computer to edit. I was told I need a firewire...
