The DNA 1000 Camera Stabilizer from Glide Gear is a handheld system that allows you to make smooth, professional-quality camera movements that are free from shakes and jitters when recording footage. The DNA 1000 supports small- to medium-sized cameras weighing between 0.7 and 3.7 pounds. It features a camera mounting plate, center post with gimbal assembly, hand grip, base platform sled, and 20-piece counterweight set. Utilizing the three-axis gimbal joint and dynamic balance sled system, the stabilizer gives you the freedom to move in all directions while keeping the camera level and balanced.

An easy-release camera plate allows you to attach and remove the camera without the use of tools. The camera attaches to the plate via 1/4" or 3/8" mounting holes. For balancing the camera horizontally, the plate's control knobs can adjust the mount forward, backward, and side to side. Vertical balance is obtained by adjusting the height of the telescoping center post and by changing the amount of counterweight on the base platform. A foam cushioned grip on the handle reduces fatigue and adds comfort. A carrying case is included for easy transport.

        It could get the job done - be patient

        Comments about Glide Gear DNA 1000 Camera Stabilizer:

        Bottom line of this stabilizer is: With patient, you could get silky smooth video.

        There are two major problems with this particular model:

        1. The load capacity description in bhphoto is between 0.7 to 3.7 lb, but in the Manuel it said 700gram.

        In my own experience, I need extra counterweight plate for GH2 + Panasonic 14mm F2.5 + Rode Videomic + quick release plate, which weight 8xx grams.

        2. Since you can not shift the base platform left and right (only front and back), you have to manual shift the counter weight to achieve balance.

        I HIGHLY recommend the purchase of two things: a light quick release plate and 1 or 2 spirit levels to check balance.

        Good stabilizer. Not super awesome, but gets the job done. Using it with a sony a3000 and bower 8mm fisheye. Could have a longer main post, but as long as you stay within the weight recommendation, it's pretty sweet

          The only bad thing abot this was the screw on the center post is difficult to use. It even stripped within 24 hours of owning it. The company sent a replacement within days and that one works fine.

            Comments about Glide Gear DNA 1000 Camera Stabilizer:

            I never got to use this because i did not like the plastic parts. They did not hold tight and they allowed for easy slip after it was adjusted. There should not be plastic clamps on equipment that needs to be finely adjusted like this.

            Comments about Glide Gear DNA 1000 Camera Stabilizer:

            This stabilizer is a pretty decent alternative to the name brand Glidecam. I just had to pick up some cheap washers from the hardware store for more counter weight. And as with all stabilizers, it takes a LOT of practice to get really great looking shots. I used it for a whole day shooting a wedding and it was awesome. It really makes the finished product look sooooo much more professional. If you do have a small or medium sized DSLR or camcorder, this is a must have.

            I only gave 4 out of 5 stars because the foam on the handle is a bit cheapy, and the little tightener thing on the adjustable rod is kinda small and is hard to tighten. But overall, it works great. :)

            Thank you B and H!!!! :D
