I am a student making another music video but this time I want to use a steadicam, does anyone know where I can rent a steadicam that will hold a Panasonic HDX?

I also need a demo for my cam-op because he has never used one before.

My dates for shooting are Saturday July 25 - Sunday July 26.

Thanks in advance.

If your operator has never used a steadicam before, I suggest you search for a steadicam owner/operator rather than just the equipment. It's not a role one can just step into without practice. The same goes for your focus puller, if he has never pulled for steadicam before.
