Smooth walking ....

I always felt it more logical to use the hand I write with as it has finer control - and this could be used on the gimbal - my left hand, well can't write for toffee, but does have power, so I can control the boom of the arm - I operate "goofy" (or "cack-handed" as someone I met recently referred to it) and feel it's most comfortable, plus all the camera controls are right by you.


There is one thing I did notice, watching the Rocky (1) DVD, there was a feature about Steadicam (check the spelling on the menu) - and the very early footage of Garrett was goofy - I have been reliably informed that he can operate both sides, but find it interesting the early stuff was done that way....


Just my 2 cents.
