Three-Axis Gold-Series Gimbal
The Gold-series "No Tools" Gimbal is Glidecam's top-of-the-line unit. Creating an astonishing deflection off true center of less than .0002" - this means your shots are always level, no matter what the conditions. Easily replaceable foam covers ensure ease of use when mounting the post to the arm.
Wide Variety Input Options
It boasts a wide variety of input options. The precision head has built-in video in/out with a specially designed distribution amplifier for crystal clear video images, allowing you to monitor your footage effectively.
Lightweight and strong, the Gold Arm wields six titanium springs capable of holding camera loads up to 38 lbs. The force on all springs is fully adjustable to accommodate varying camera weights. Glidecam's Gold Arm can be moved up and down, absorbing vertical shock, which allows ultra-smooth camera movement.
