Established in 1996, Optical Support initially provided a first class lens repair service to the broadcast and film industries. The company later expanded with the help of the UK’s two most prominent Steadicam operators, Peter Cavaciuti and Peter Robertson, to also create the first hire facility specialising solely in Steadicam equipment and accessories.
The Petes’ invaluable knowledge and experience has ensured that our Steadicam hire kits are up-to-scratch and genuinely operator friendly.
