          I'm using this product for real estate videography and find that this product takes some time to get comfortable with and longer to master. You need to have some patience if you want to effectively. This is a grate tool for the tool box once mastered. So far, my only gripe with product is the build quality of the grip. The foam grip had ripped on the fist day of use. Not a big deal but annoying.

          Comments about Glide Gear SYL-3000 Camera Stabilizer:

          The SYL-3000 is definitely a must have product for smooth footage indoors and outdoors when shooting on the move. I use this with my Canon T2i to get stable walking/running shots that are difficult to get while shooting handheld. Only thing I didn't like about this product is the time it takes to balance it correctly before you can start filming. Having to constantly add/remove weights can be frustrating in the beginning but in the end the results are worth it. I wouldn't recommend using this for time-crunched video shoots since it takes a few minutes to set up correctly but if you're not pressed for time then this is a great product to have in your stash of video equipment.

          Comments about Glide Gear SYL-3000 Camera Stabilizer:

          When i initially saw this, i wanted to give it a try, as i did. All stabilizers will give you a headache at first. I did get the hang of it, but still felt like this wasnt even close to a pro piece. So i decided to take it back, and go for something a little more pricey. But to learn and get the hang of how a stabilizer works, this is a great stepping stone. If you master this, you'll be good on almost anything. Give it a shot, but if u got the extra bucks, go a little higher in price range. hope this helps.
