          Comments about Glide Gear DNA 5050 Professional Camera Stabilizer:

          The glide gear stabilizer is a good product. It takes time and practice to learn how to properly balance the stabilizer but once you have mastered that it is great.

            Comments about Glide Gear DNA 5050 Professional Camera Stabilizer:

            I use it for video with a Canon 60D and a Tamron 28-75 2.8/fAt first I was sketchy about buying a Glide-Cam "look-a-like", for almost $ cheaper, but I am not in the least displeased! This stabilizer held up very well, and although took a long time to balance (which is simply part of the process, no matter how long it takes the user), gave outstanding results! I took 4 different camera rigs to a weeklong gig, and the glide-gear was the ONLY one I ended up using!

            This product is amazing for the price! I haven't heard of many people using the DNA 5050 but I highly suggest you pick one up if you are looking for a cheap altervative to the Glidecam. It is a bit heavier than the Glidecam but it is just as easy to balance and use.

            Comments about Glide Gear DNA 5050 Professional Camera Stabilizer:

            I have an upcoming project that I wanted to have smooth video for so I went down to B&H to get more information on Steadycam/Glidecam. After talking with the gentleman there I ended up purchasing this. His last words to me were good video takes practice and don't get frustrated -- Boy was he right. I keep getting better but I still require more practice/strength/endurance.

            The build quality is great and I do not see any cons to this product. It works as stated and does so very well. I use my Nikon D600 with Sigma 1.4 50mm lens which is a great combination.
