To cover events you need to carry a lot of heavy gear and to get around fast. The Segway helps me get around in pedestrian areas and works great as a steady cam especially when covering parades. Here I have a Sony NEX-VG10 and a Nikon D700 on a spider holster for quick access. Also see CraigShipp.com
