Camera Strap
What are the “things” camera operators use that strap onto their waists to create a smooth camera movement?

There used for sports broadcasting, and strap around the bodies. i would like to buy one but have no idea what they are called!
Im looking for a relatively cheap one?

i see people on tv doing sports events usingthem

Check the GlideCam and SteadyCam websites. They are “camera stabilizers”. In addition to the vest portion, there is an articulated, balanced arm to which the camcorder is mounted. The cheap ones start at about $3,000. Bigger cameras mean more $.
