Steadicam Fawcett Exovest Lets Camera Operator Move Naturally
Tiffen (Booth C8818) is showcasing its latest Steadicam innovation, the Steadicam Fawcett Exovest, designed by Chris Fawcett, an expert on the physiology of human weight-bearing appliances. The Steadicam Exovest exoskeletal vest automatically redistributes camera weight to anatomically appropriate areas of the body, allowing operators maximum mobility and comfort.
The camera-stabilization design features front and rear arm mounts and a pivoting exoskeletal structure that is adjustable on the fly.
Compared with conventional vests, the Fawcett Exovest is less constrictive, allowing better respiration, circulation, transpiration, and movement. The result is a feeling of increased lightness and control. After docking, the entire vest may be relaxed by means of one over-center lever, as only the upper-pad-system bed is under load.
