Geoff Andrew at Moving Media Limited (Hamilton) is an enthusiastic user of the Segway Personal Transporter (PT) for hands-free Steadicam filming, and once again he’s refined and updated his rig.
Geoff started out with an Segway x2 with Turf tyres in 2012 to use with a standard video camera when making corporate videos. Next he built his own “knee steer” hands-free kit. He also made some customisations to a SegVator power lift to make it really easy to transport the Segway PT from job to job on the back of his vehicle. Based on his initial efforts and experiences in the field, in 2013 he redesigned the hands-free kit to use with a newly purchased Steadicam rig.
Now he’s refined his solution even further, with tuneable adjustments in all dimensions, a seat, as well as some really nice finishing touches that demonstrate Geoff’s design prowess and attention to detail.
