    I'm very happy I bought this bracket. I would spend hours working on stabilizing my HD-2000 in various places, trying to get comfortable, on the floor, table, garage etc. Before I would config the HD-2000 and after setting it down I would have to configure it again, not a lot but some is always needed. Now with the docking bracket it only takes minutes to configure and man it is nice. They have you when it comes to the price. $59 is more reasonable, but what can you do tother than not buy it? I don't have the resources to build one or I would.

    It is outragous what Glidecam charges for this chunk of metal needed to more easily balance their units. [...] Just so this doesn't entirely sound like sour grapes, I own a Glidecam X-10 arm & vest along with and HD-4000 and HD-2000 and am generally happy with those purchases.Please stop gauging your customers, Glidecam.

    Comments about Glidecam GLHDSDB Docking Bracket for Stabilizers:

    Like many others, I feel the price of the docking bracket is too high, considering its simplicity in design with only a single moving part (the locking turn screw). But, if you own a Glidecam, it's a necessity. Balancing is a nightmare without it. You'll hate that you have to dish out another $ after buying your Glidecam, but I can tell you from personal experience that it is absolutely worth buying.

        This is exactly how it is described. A little unhappy with the price, but with a light stand (purchased separately), it helps balance the glide cam perfectly.

        This is needed to make balancing faster and easier. This should be included when you buy the glidecam and/or when you go for the vest.

            Comments about Glidecam GLHDSDB Docking Bracket for Stabilizers:

            Do you own a Glidecam? Are you going to be buying a Glidecam? If the answer to either question is yes then do yourself a favor and buy this docking bracket! I have a Panasonic AG-HMC40 video camera and got the Glidecam HD-4000 for Christmas. I can't even begin to imagine how long it would have taken and how difficult it would have been to properly balance my setup without this docking bracket. I put it on one of my heavy duty light stands and it only took me about 10 minutes to balance the Glidecam. If I had to actually hold this setup and set it down to add/remove weights and reattach the camera on the plate to a new position, etc., it would have been a nightmare! Now I have my setup hooked onto the bracket and I'm confident it won't break or fall over and that the cat won't be able to knock the whole thing over either. Yes, it is a bit pricey, but, isn't everything in this video world we play in today? I'm a firm believer that it isn't a crime to pay a lot of money for a great tool! This is one of those tools and it's money well spent!

            Some may call it overpriced, but comparing my footage before and after balancing with this unit I am very pleased with the improvement. Balancing is achieved in a fraction of the time. I was skeptical, but I like it.

                I use this bracket with my Glidecam 4000pro. I couldn't balance the glidecam without it. It is made of durable material and seems to wear well.

                Seems a bit pricey but it does the job well.

                        Once you start putting a lot of weight on your stabilizer and get the vest w/ arm, this docking bracket and the C Stand are a must buy. If you're spending the dough on the vest and arm you might as well spend the extra money on a docking station for it.
                        Helps when you are balancing your rig.
                        Better for the unit.
                        Looks really cool.
                        You can also hang your vest on it.

                          The docking bracket is an aid to balancing the Glidecam during initial setup and makes forward/backward balance when changing lenses a snap. The worst thing about the bracket is it's cost. And no you don't really need it. IMHO, for as cheap as it is to make, and as handy as it is to have, it should be included in the purchase price. Including it would reduce the bad press the Glidecam gets and put a smile on many Glidecam users faces.

                          It is outragous what Glidecam charges for this chunk of metal needed to more easily balance their units. [...] Just so this doesn't entirely sound like sour grapes, I own a Glidecam X-10 arm & vest along with and HD-4000 and HD-2000 and am generally happy with those purchases.Please stop gauging your customers, Glidecam.

                            After trying to balance my new Glidecam HD2000 "manually", I finally decided to order this. I should have ordered this sooner -- makes it MUCH easier to do the balancing. I also plan to take it on shoots for docking the Glidecam. IMHO, it should be an included accessory with the HD2000, just like it already is included with the HD4000.
