Glidecam GLX10 Overview

  • 1Description

The GLIDECAM X-10 is a professional camera stabilization system designed for use with the Glidecam 2000 Pro, 4000 Pro, HD-2000, HD-4000, XR-2000 and XR-4000. The GLIDECAM X-10 system will allow you to walk, run, go up and down stairs, shoot from moving vehicles and travel over uneven terrain without any camera instability or shake.

Upgrades from Smooth Shooter
The X-10 comes with both sections of its support arm being able to move vertically, whereas the Smooth Shooter comes with only the front section of its support arm being able to move vertically. Also, the X-10 comes with a trimmable arm-to-vest connector, whereas the Smooth Shooter's arm-to-vest connector is not trimmable.
Support Arm Movement
The GLIDECAM X-10'S support arm can be boomed up and down, as well as pivoted in and out, and side-to-side. It is the combined booming and pivoting action of the support arm that isolates your motions from the camera in a way that creates smooth camera footage.
Support Vest
The Glidecam X-10 support vest is lightweight, comfortable and can be adjusted to fit a wide range of operators. High endurance, dual density, EVA foam padding and integral T6 aluminum alloy create a vest which can hold and evenly distribute the weight of the system across the operator's shoulders, back, and hips. For safety, quick release, high impact buckles allow the vest to be removed quickly.

    Glidecam GLX10 Reviews

    X-10 Dual Support Arm Stabilizer Vest System is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 41.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect, Very smooth I use the X-10 for Real Estate walkthrough tours, and many other film/type projects. It is very lightweight, and works perfectly every time! I can walk through the smallest of doorways with no problem. Set-up is quick and easy, and teardown is even quicker. The construction is solid as a rock and I'm sure it will hold up for years to come.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting product Bought to use with a Glidecam Pro 4000 I've owned for a while. A little disappointed with the manual considering what it costs. You won't purchase this then run out and use it, it takes time to setup properly and lots of practice to use. Read the manual carefully before assembly. Find a user forum for suggestions & tips on how to use it, good ones are out there. That said, with more practice I think this will be a real asset. Some people have issues with storage, I put everything but the vest in a large case. The vest I hang on a wide shouldered hanger. It's bulky but they all are. Oh, start exercising too as it can be a real workout.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I use this for pre-bridal shoots at weddings along with Reception footage. And now renting myself out as a Glidecam Operator. This is a strong robust item. Built well. Straps could be a bit longer on the vest, and a training DVD would help. I use this with the 4000 PRO and everyone who has seen footage is very impressed. Take note: get in shape! Lower back exercises and walking to build stamina goes along way. You don't have to be a Jack La Lane (thats a fitness guy for you younger people) but you will need to get use to a fast pulse rate. I believe you get what you pay for and this unit is worth every dollar. Makes me money and gets me in shape!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from X-10 efficiency Overall I am pleased with the affordability of the Glidecam X-10. The unit does what it is supposed to do contingent upon the operators skills of course. However the vests straps are set to maximum for someone like me (I am 220 pounds) and I dont understand as to why the manufacturer was so frugal about the straps! Also there is only one hole for the screw that holds down the monitor. Thus the monitor spins out of where it is set when you move around. Over the entire unit is a great addition to my production gear. Cheers

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Be patient, worth it. The vest is a must have if you plan to work many times with glidecam and maybe become a seasoned glidecam/steadicam operator. BE PATIENT! You won't achieve very good results before 30 full days of work. It's sometimes exhausting and frustrating. But reward is awesome. Finding the right balance, the right posture, the right weight/counterweight balance need patience. And as soon as you change, add/remove an accessory on your must re-balance... I recommend that item IF you are very motivated. It is not simple but gives Hollywood results. You must be imaginative and creative to fit everything on place and balanced. The vest offers to work with one or two set of springs (two springs per set). If you work with one set, best is to have a 9 pounds weight charge on the sled. If you work with all springs, best is to have 18 pounds of weight charge. Be prepared for A LOT of try, try, try. Add weight/remove weight. Tune springs (they are fully customizable for resistance), try them, tune, try, tune, try, fine tune, try, re-fine tune, retry... Once you have found the correct setting(s), you're golden and then have fun looking at your productions. Highly recommended for motivated people. If possible, rent one with a veteran operator before buying.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GLIDECAM X-10 Easy set-up, very adjustable and comfortable vest, arm adjusted perfect to the weight of my HVX200. 15 years ago I owned a STEADYCAM and the GLIDECAM X-10 cost about 1/10 and works just as well. I use it in many applications including interviews, homes, offices, live music, water skiers and landscapes from moving boats. This unit is worth every dollar! Also works great with the Low-Mode accessory.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It was more than I expected! I purchased this product a week ago and used it at a videography event that same week. Before I purchased it, it read many reviews that the stabilization system would hurt peoples back if not used correctly. I did not have any back issues during my first 5 hour event. When balanced correctly, the stabilization system works perfectly. It is easy to put together once you get practice with it. I was jumping from a tripod to the stabilization frequently. I have not given this a 5 star rating because I need to use it a bit more before I find any issues. There is one thing, a clip is needed if you want to release the camera from the sled. Really great product, and I'm glad I spent the money on it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I make instructional video for the fire department and this vest system has been a great purchase. It works good and is a quality piece of equipment. It is one of my go to tools for great smooth shots. I guess i can't think af anything bad to say about the X-10 arm and vest. for the money, it exceeds my expectations considering that a pro steady cam rig costs 10 times as much. I am very happy.
