Overview
  • 1Description

The Glidecam XR-2000 Handheld Camera Stabilizer With Smooth Shooter 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.

Glidecam's Smooth Shooter System is designed to be the first truly affordable professionally inspired camera stabilization system. Designed to work with Glidecam's existing 2000 Pro unit, the Smooth Shooter is the perfect solution for the prosumer video camera weighing up to 10 lbs. Running, going up and down stairs, and even shooting from moving vehicles is all possible without camera instability or shake.

Simply attach the Glidecam 2000 Pro to the Smooth Shooter's patented Dyna-Elastic arm; you will be able to achieve the type of tracklike footage you've always dreamed of. The distribution of weight across your whole body (instead of just in the arm) will allow you to shoot for extended periods of time.

The XR-2000 is a complete handheld system, with a dynamic camera platform that will allow you to mount & achieve proper balance for your small to medium camcorder (2-6 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-2000 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-2000, you will no doubt benefit from the addition of an optional support accessory (sold separately), such as a Body-Pod, a Forearm Brace, or an X10 or Smooth Shooter arm/vest support.

  • Glidecam Smooth Shooter Support System

    Glidecam's Smooth Shooter System is designed to be the first truly affordable professionally inspired camera stabilization system. Designed to work with Glidecam's existing 2000 and 4000 Pro units, as well as the HD-2000, HD-4000, XR-2000 and XR-4000 units. The Smooth Shooter is the perfect solution for the prosumer video camera weighing up to 10 lbs. Running, going up and down stairs, and even shooting from moving vehicles is all possible without camera instability or shake.

    Simply attach a compatible unit to the Smooth Shooter's patented Dyna-Elastic arm, you will be able to achieve the type of tracklike footage you've always dreamed of. The distribution of weight across your whole body (instead of just in the arm) will allow you to shoot for extended periods of time.

    Track-like Imagery
    Glide effortlessly over rough terrain, giving your footage the much needed edge clients love.
    Dyna-Elastic Arm
    Lightweight and Strong, the Dyna-Elastic wields two high-carbon alloy springs capable of holding camera loads up to 10 lbs. The Smooth Shooter's arm can be moved up and down, absorbing vertical shock, which results in ultra-smooth camera movement.
    Inter-X-Change System
    Changing springs is easy with the Inter-X-Change System. The Arm can be set to use one or two springs, capable of holding 9 and 18 lbs. respectively.
    Smooth Shooter Vest
    The adjustability of the Smooth Shooter Vest ensures it will fit almost any body type. The vest makes sure weight is distributed evenly across the whole upper body, resulting in less fatigue. The quick release buckles allow for quick and easy removal, while the seven-panel seat belt strapping guarantees a tight fit.
