The DNA 5050 Professional Camera Stabilizer from Glide Gear is a handheld stabilizer made for DSLR or video cameras between 2-7 lb. It is designed to keep your camera free from hand shake and vibrations while also keeping it stable and balanced for a smooth floating-camera appearance in your videos. The three-axis gimbal joint allows you to move in all directions while the camera maintains its balance.

An easy release camera plate allows you to attach and remove the camera without the use of tools. For balancing the camera horizontally, the plate’s control knobs can adjust the mount forward, backward, and side to side. The vertical balance is obtained by adjusting the height of the telescoping center post and by changing the amount of weight on the base platform. A foam cushioned grip on the handle reduces fatigue and adds comfort, especially if you're shooting in a cold environment. A carrying case is included for easy transport.

    nice stablizer

    By hughes productions

    Comments about Glide Gear DNA 5050 Professional Camera Stabilizer:

    The glide gear stabilizer is a good product. It takes time and practice to learn how to properly balance the stabilizer but once you have mastered that it is great.

      Comments about Glide Gear DNA 5050 Professional Camera Stabilizer:

      I use it for video with a Canon 60D and a Tamron 28-75 2.8/fAt first I was sketchy about buying a Glide-Cam "look-a-like", for almost $ cheaper, but I am not in the least displeased! This stabilizer held up very well, and although took a long time to balance (which is simply part of the process, no matter how long it takes the user), gave outstanding results! I took 4 different camera rigs to a weeklong gig, and the glide-gear was the ONLY one I ended up using!

      Comments about Glide Gear DNA 5050 Professional Camera Stabilizer:

      This product is amazing for the price! I haven't heard of many people using the DNA 5050 but I highly suggest you pick one up if you are looking for a cheap altervative to the Glidecam. It is a bit heavier than the Glidecam but it is just as easy to balance and use.

      Comments about Glide Gear DNA 5050 Professional Camera Stabilizer:

      I have an upcoming project that I wanted to have smooth video for so I went down to B&H to get more information on Steadycam/Glidecam. After talking with the gentleman there I ended up purchasing this. His last words to me were good video takes practice and don't get frustrated -- Boy was he right. I keep getting better but I still require more practice/strength/endurance.

      The build quality is great and I do not see any cons to this product. It works as stated and does so very well. I use my Nikon D600 with Sigma 1.4 50mm lens which is a great combination.
