      Comments about Glidecam Camera Weight Plate:

      For how inexpensive this is, you should absolutely have one available. At some point you will need to add weight on top for a smaller camera or other weight balance issues. Get it.

            I was able crank up the weight of my gh2 for use on a glidecam 4000. I used two of these and they worked exactly as I hoped. Price is very reasonable.

            I would have given this little guy 6 stars if they made one a bit more heavier as I had to stack 2 of these onto my Glidecam HD4000, but either way it works like a charm! just the perfect thing I needed to get my balance just right. I was surprised on how incredibly cheap it was compared to others in the $200 mark!! its a solid durable plate. scratches easily, but a weight is a weight. It does its job perfectly! would purchase this again and again if I had to! highly recommended.

              Works perfectly with my HD4000 and 5D MKII. Used in conjunction with a Manfrotto quick release plate to hold the unit on the glidecam, excellent solution for weight distribution.

                        I was building a DIY table dolly for my DSLR and couldn't find a good, stable, lightweight plate for it. After searching for a long time on the web, I came across a Youtube video of a guy who used this as the plate for a dolly. I ordered it and it was better quality than I thought it would be. I love it!

                        Used it so I could mount a 5D to the Glidecam. The stabilization can be tricky, but as far as the weight plate goes - that was an inexpensive, easy add-on.

                                Works exactly as described. I'm using it to make a very light handycam work with a Glidecame HD 2000. Doing it again, I would have purchased two of these additional plates because even with this one I had to use a couple additional weight plates. But all things considered, this thing is great!

                                I stack three of these on my glidecam hd4000. The extra weight on top gives for a super stable camera with no pendulum. A great product for our light little beast!

                                  Two years ago I made my worse mistake in quite some time - rather than weigh my SONY HDR-FX7 I estimated its weight, over-guessing by 30% (the camera weighs in under 5 pounds). And in doing so I bought the Glidecam 4000 Pro stabilizer, and have never been able to use it with that camera.
                                  But now with my purchase of the Camera Weight Plate by Glidecam, I can now use the stabilizer with both my FX7 and my heavier cameras.
                                  This simple little device not only saved me lots of money I would have spent on an additional stabilizer, but I can transport one stabilizer for my cameras rather than two or more.

                                                  You're not going to find a better product for a cheaper price. Usually these things run close to $80 sometimes, so at this price it's a steal!

                                                    Bought this item to put on top of a glidecam as I was using my own tripod head. This guaranteed that I could put it just about anywhere to ensure balancing the camera on the glidecam would be easy. It was.

                                                        This is a terrific cheeseplate/weight-plate, priced right. Solid construction, versatility, and affordability are all strong characteristics of this product. For a comparatively small item, Glidecam has a big winner here.

                                                        I've been building camera dollies using this plate to secure the tripod head to the dolly. Works a treat.

                                                          Great value, we used this as a mounting plate for a DIY DSLR Camera dolly to go with a Slider we built.

                                                            Used this for slider dolly, put your skateboard trucks on this and a quick release plate or fluid head mount and you have a great table dolly.
                                                            Built tracks for this works great.
