The shot starts about .45 sec. in (never mind the German!) How the hell is this done and esp. in '83 w/ a huge camera? I'm interested in building a rig for my GoPro so any advice or links...is this shot like Hitchcock on the stairs in "Psycho" and Spielberg w/ Brody seeing the shark on the beach in "JAWS"? where the camera dollys in and simultaneously zooms out as I can seem to figure this one out! Thanks in advance.,...

I assume you're talking about the shot where the camera seems to move with him and then he turns away from the camera. Although there also appears to be a body mount type shot. If it's the latter they could've used a 16mm camera, although it hard to tell or possibly something like a Bell and Howell 35mm Eyemo camera or an Arri with a 200ft mag. 35mm film cameras have been used to shoot freefall parachuting:    http://difficultiswo...h_doing/part_1/

However, if the twisting away shot, I'd assume he's attached to a separate camera mount by a loop that keeps him in the same position relative to the camera and he moves with the camera.

Scorsese did the same thing with Harvey Keitel - for a much longer take - in Mean Streets.  And that was in 1973.

Maybe I'm repeating something, but at 1:51 there appears to be a still of the rig used...
