The Glidecam HD4000 Stabilizer System and Forearm Brace Kit from B&H Photo is a lightweight, hand-held camcorder stabilizing system, plus a forearm brace that distributes the weight of the system over your entire forearm. The HD4000 is upgraded from the 4000 Pro and offers fine adjustments and an improved gimbal and balance system.
Camera stabilization systems like this one 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 usually achieved with more expensive equipment. The brace not only provides you with cushioned comfort while shooting, but also eliminates torque, which would otherwise cause stress on your wrist. With the forearm brace, the Glidecam system becomes an extension of the human body for smooth and natural shooting.
