Some people call it a Kaiser Cam, I like to call it the Slingcam...
Here's the test footage from this steadycam which I built and designed to let you sling the camera low — between ankle and knee height over the ground, I call it the Slingcam. This was my first day out with it, so with a little more work things should get smoother. It is much easier to keep steady when walking, but I couldn’t resist taking it out on the roller blades. Its great for low angle shots. All footage was taken on the Canon HV30, done in 24p....

It would be a major kick in the gut to slam that cam into something. At those speeds, it'd be like the Delorean at the end of Back to the Future 3!
Cool set-up, regardless. And besides, sometimes you have to take risks in order to get the shot!

Thanks man....yeah, I never truly cared about breaking equipment..Although I was thinking of incorporating some kind of roll cage for the cam.
