The Glidecam HD4000 Stabilizer System and Body-Pod Support Kit from B&H Photo is 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 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 Body-Pod makes it possible to do all this and keep doing it for long periods of time.
