The Glidecam HD2000 Stabilizer System With 577 QR Plate Kit from B&H Photo is a lightweight, hand-held camcorder stabilizing system that includes a Manfrotto 577 Rapid Connect Adapter with Sliding Mounting Plate (501PL). This system is upgraded from the 2000 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.

The Manfrotto 577 gives you the freedom to switch your camera from the Glidecam to a tripod and back again quickly. Compatible with the 501PL (old 3433PL) camera plate (supplied with the 3433, 3460, and 3465 heads) and the special 501PLONG accessory plate.

        Comments about Glidecam HD2000 Stabilizer System With 577 QR Plate Kit:

        I bought this thinking it's basically plug and play. It's not - many videos on the web on how you need to modify the QR. I spent nearly 2 hours trying to get the QR on and working. Well, you can't use the locking pin, there are videos saying you need duct tape, take off the locking lever on the 577 - because you can't tighten it while the camera is on...I could go on. But the glidecam - skip the 577 and go with another QR option.Lost a $40 filter when the camera fell off. The $1K lens was fine....

        Comments about Glidecam HD2000 Stabilizer System With 577 QR Plate Kit:

        This is a great tool for improving your production value. It has a steep learning curve but if you know about stabilizing systems is very easy to balance. This is a little heavy so you have to be careful hurting your wrist and arm, if you want to shoot more than 2 minutes takes, the vest and arm is highly recommended.

          I've been holding off on buying the glide cam hd 2000 for sometime now.
          Which was a big mistake . With a little patience and some finesse it took about a solid week to get this down to the point where i can walk,run and do everything its intended for..Product is solid and has and unlimited uses
