In Full Metal Jacket, the 'Vietnam: The Movie' sequence, the cameraman has a small rig attached to his camera he uses that presses against his shoulder and his waist:

What's this called?

I've got a Scoopic so it can't rest against the shoulder.

Is this device used like a tripod just to stabilize the camera in stationary shots, or can it be used like a cheap and crude Steadicam?
