The Glidecam XR-1000 Handheld Camera Stabilizer With Body Pod Kit from B&H Photo represents an affordable way to put your compact camcorder on a floating platform, enabling you to capture the types of professional handheld shots that add dynamic flair to any video production. Smooth camera movement that ranges freely in every dimension is not something you can achieve via dollies or shoulder-mount rigs. For truly unfettered, floating camera moves, you need a gimbal-based camera stabilizer.

The Glidecam Body Pod is a lightweight rigid support system which lets you shoot in cushioned comfort for indefinite periods of time. By taking the weight of the stabilizer off your hands and arms and placing it onto your waist and shoulders, the Body Pod virtually eliminates stress and fatigue, allowing you the freedom to shoot events that require uninterrupted shooting.

The XR-1000 is a complete handheld system, with a dynamic camera platform that will allow you to mount & achieve proper balance for your small camcorder (up to 3 lb), a telescoping central post that allows you to adjust the height of the unit, and a balance platform that supports any combination of the included large and small counterbalance weights. At the center of everything, however, is the three-axis gimbal that lets the camera handle move freely while the rest of the stabilizer stays upright, thereby eliminating the shake that plagues most handheld camerawork.

The design of the Glidecam XR-1000 is tool-free, so you'll be able to set up and achieve balance easily & quickly every time. With practice you'll be steering your camera through three dimensions naturally and smoothly without a second thought, as if the camera platform were a cloud floating through calm skies.

For long periods of operation with the XR-1000, you'll be very happy you're using the Body Pod.
