The Glidecam HD1000 Stabilizer System and Glidecam Body-Pod Kit from B&H Photo features a lightweight, hand-held camcorder stabilizing system, plus a lightweight rigid support system which lets you shoot in cushioned comfort for indefinite periods of time. The HD1000 is upgraded from the 1000 Pro and offers fine adjustments and an improved gimbal and balance system.
Camera stabilization systems, like the HD1000, work to provide camera stability during movement for dynamic and subjective camera shots. It utilizes a balancing system that dampens the user's body movement, providing a smooth, floating moving image appearance, that is usually achieved with more expensive equipment. The Body-Pod makes it possible to do all this and keep doing it for long periods of time.
