Glidecam HD4000 Stabilizer System
The Glidecam HD4000 is a lightweight, hand-held camcorder stabilizing system. This system is upgraded from the 4000 Pro and offers fine adjustments and an improved gimbal and balance system.
Camera stabilization systems like this one work to provide camera stability during movement for dynamic and subjective camera shots. It utilizes a balancing system that dampens the user's body movement, providing a smooth, floating moving image appearance usually achieved with more expensive equipment.
Upgrades from 4000 Pro
This system is upgraded in its gimbal movement and adjustment of convergence and camera balance.
A no tool telescoping central post allows for precision balance and easy adjustment.
Glidecam X-10 Dual Support Arm Stabilizer Vest System
The GLIDECAM X-10 is a professional camera stabilization system designed for use with the Glidecam 2000 Pro, 4000 Pro, HD-2000, HD-4000, XR-2000 and XR-4000. The GLIDECAM X-10 system will allow you to walk, run, go up and down stairs, shoot from moving vehicles and travel over uneven terrain without any camera instability or shake.
Upgrades from Smooth Shooter
The X-10 comes with both sections of its support arm being able to move vertically, whereas the Smooth Shooter comes with only the front section of its support arm being able to move vertically. Also, the X-10 comes with a trimmable arm-to-vest connector, whereas the Smooth Shooter's arm-to-vest connector is not trimmable.
Support Arm Movement
The GLIDECAM X-10'S support arm can be boomed up and down, as well as pivoted in and out, and side-to-side. It is the combined booming and pivoting action of the support arm that isolates your motions from the camera in a way that creates smooth camera footage.
The Glidecam X-10 support vest is lightweight, comfortable and can be adjusted to fit a wide range of operators. High endurance, dual density, EVA foam padding and integral T6 aluminum alloy create a vest which can hold and evenly distribute the weight of the system across the operator's shoulders, back, and hips. For safety, quick release, high impact buckles allow the vest to be removed quickly.
