Can anyone recommend a good Steadycam system for the GYHD200?

Thank you!

Are you looking to buy one? If so take a look at the Steadicam Flyer.

If you need to hire a Steadicam operator most of us have weights that we add to full size rigs to fly these lighter cameras.

Check out the SteadicamForum.com

Good Luck

I can ask my steadycam op to be more specific, but from what I have seen of him flying the 110 on my current project, I think the steadycam (I think flyer) is best. We have also run a glidecam v-16 and that worked alright, but it seemed to be more of a hassel to balance. I didn't personaly balance it of course, but from what I remember it seems I waited less on the steadycam balance than I did the V-16. I also heard less problems reported with the steadycam. I will see if I can get my op to elaborate a little more fully.
