The last time I worked with him, we ended up using a wheelchair to get the tracking shot because 1) with just your arm supporting it unless you've got huge biceps the rig dips because you're getting weaker and 2) there are times your arm/shoulder is just shaking from the weight and getting weak that it negates the stabilization.
All in all, gives me that much more respect for steadicam operators - running along with S16 or 35 cams on their rigs.

Here is a pic of the rig:
Definitely with a heavier camera it would be more difficult, I'm wondering how it will do with the HVX200 camera I'll be getting soon.
