hello!
I red this paragraph in a book by Serena Ferrara about the steadicam, could someone explain how the roll movement works? i am trying to implement it to my thesis about camera movement.

"By the end of the 1930s, the camera could be moved in almost any direction imaginable. New tripods were capable of the roll movement. In addition, due to new kinds of friction heads with gears that could block or adjust the friction, the operator had better control over the movements"

thanks!

It's basically a third axis. Many refer to "roll" as a "dutch angle". Here's a link to TangoHead. They make heads specifically for this axis, and the pictures on the site will explain it best.
