That looks like a Steadicam Mk2. Compared to the picture, the big difference is the two handed operation, this was developed on "The Shining" by Garrett Brown. Modern Steadicams have a vertical post arrangement on the sled as introduced on the Steadicam III, the high brightness, green CRT monitor with valves has been replaced by a LCD monitor.

Love the cables coming off the vest.  How much our world has changed.  

Still see it in broadcast steadi builds from time to time but when I do I’m always thinking thank god for wireless.
