I recently shot a music video on a Steadicam and I was wondering about something. My concern is that I had to take the sled off in between shots (about 5-10 min at a time). The rig was, of course, very heavy with the RED+Lenses+Monitor+2xBatteries+Hard Drive. Arms max. load is 38 lbs.
So my question is whether this is normal or not? If no, do you think there is something wrong with the rig or is it just because I'm not physical capable of operating it?
Physically I think I'm quite solid, even in comparison to professional Steadicam operators...I'm 5'9" tall, weight 181 lbs and have been pumping iron for nearly 2 years at several times a week. Although I'm weak on cardio.
