Hi,
I'm looking for a steadicam owner/operator for 4-5 days starting on August 7. Will be shooting at Towson State Univ. just outside of Baltimore with my Canon XL-2 (16:9, 24p) so familiarity with that cam is a must. It will be you and a PA to help you shooting mostly sideline action at football practice and surrounding business. If you know a good PA/cam assist you like to work with, let me know. E-mail me your details at timjbd@yahoo.com and we can talk turkey.

You needn't be the most experienced Steadicam op but knowledge of the XL-2 is a must. In lieu of XL-2 knowledge, I would consider hiring you if you were an SDX-900 owner as well as that is the primary cam.

OK, that's it then.

Yeah, I checked there first to see if there was a "Jobs" thread. Nope. Would be great if there was a way to see who lived where and I could just e-mail them, but nothing. So here it is.

There is a 'Jobs and Resumes' forum at http://www.steadicam...hp?showforum=22

I just added a 'Searchable Location' field in the Steadicam Forum so ops can submit info that a producer might use to find and hire them. I've emailed the forum members but it likely will take them a while to update their profiles.

To search by location, go to http://www.steadicamforum.com/forums/

Click 'Members' in the top navigation.

Scroll down below the list and click 'Toggle More Options'

Enter a value in the 'Searchable Location' field like 'Los Angeles' and click 'Go' to submit.

The first one is a broken link.

I tried searching "Washington", "Baltimore", even "New York" and got "No results".
Search "Los Angeles" and get: EVERY...SINGLE...MEMBER...IN THE FORUM.

Guess it's time for me to buy a Steadicam rig? Is a "Flyer" a good one? The Steadicam website has two used ones for sale at $5700. They take up to 44lbs. Wonder if that's a "Turn-key" price?

You have to be logged into the steadicam forum in order for it to work.

Search the Steadicam Operators Association Website for operators in the Baltimore area. There may be some listed there.
I believe you're mistaken about the Flyer. I don't have the numbers in front of me, but I'm pretty certain it won't fly a camera over 20 or so lbs., if that much.
