Steadicam


Steadicam
(shot)
  a hand-held camera technique using a stabilizing Steadicam (introduced in the late 70s), developed by inventor Garrett Brown, with a special, mechanical harness that allows the camera operator to take relatively smooth and steady shots, though hand-held, while moving along with the action; the resulting images are comparable to normal tracking shots on a wheeled dolly
  Examples: earliest use in Bound for Glory (1976), some uses also in Rocky (1976), in the lengthy tracking shots down the corridors of the Overlook Hotel in Kubrick's The Shining (1980), and in Return of the Jedi (1983); also the over 5-minute uncut Steadicam shot along the beach at Dunkirk in Atonement (2007)
