Glidecam Tru-Horizon overview

  • 1Description

The Glidecam Tru-Horizon is a motorized gimbal designed to attach to handheld stabilizers, such as the Glidecam Devin Graham Signature Series or a Steadicam, and to keep the camera horizontal no matter how you move the stabilizer.

The Tru-Horizon controls your camera's roll axis. For example, swing the stabilizer to the left or right and the camera will maintain its horizontal position throughout all the motion. You can move the camera from low mode to high mode and back in a single fluid, cinematic shot while keeping it level horizontally. You can even rotate the stabilizer a full 360°, and the camera will keep its position the entire time. A built-in slip-ring allows 360° rotations of the motor without twisting wires.

The Tru-Horizon's motor works with position feedback, encoders, and an IMU sensor to communicate with a custom 32-bit controller. Combining the accuracy of the sensor with the speed of the controller provides for stable video in all three axes with .02° of accuracy.

    Glidecam Tru-Horizon reviews

    Tru-Horizon is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Hybrid Gimbal The Tru-Horizon is an excellent hybrid gimbal that works perfectly with my Glidecam 2000. It is the best of both worlds. I have manual control over all my moves with glidecam hd 2000 but with professional level horizons in every shot. That was one of the hardest parts to master on the hd 2000 alone, especially with complex moves like mini-crane shots. But no more worries with the Glidecam Tru-Horizon. Also the ability to go from scooting along at ground level and then up into a POV shot all in one fluid move is amazing. The Tru-Horizon was also a pleasure to set up and I was up and balanced with it on my glidecam hd 2000 in less than 30 minutes. The Tru-Horizon is very subtle and it hasn't added any electronic look to my shots at all--they remain feeling organic an natural, which is something I can't say for many of the 3-axis motorized gimbals. Overall I'm very pleased with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Dope accessory! Doesn't take away the floating nature of the glidecam at all. Not worth 600 tho... more like 300... but that's just my opinion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Monopod dream accessory I've been using this on a monopod and I'm amazed at how well it works. Using a video head on a monopod with the Tru-Horizon allows for dolly, and jib shots. even slider style reveals. It allows tilt and pan control while removing the leveling issues with faking those types of shots with the monopod. Fantastic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Useful Tool I cannot stand seeing my glide cam go dutch. Tru-Horizon by Glidecam has solved this problem. I save a lot of time in field by not having to shoot multiple retakes now that I have this tool. I would highly suggest this product. It also works great upside down to you can easily follow feet, pets, etc...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Addition! I've been super reluctant to switch over to a gymbal from a glidecam but my shots are always ever so slightly crooked, and I'm always correcting this in post. But not anymore! Still has a great feeling of a glidecam but the Tru-Horizon makes it a lot more versatile. Only thing is that the back of it comes up and will completely block your screen if you're using Sony but for GH5 and Canon users this will be great!
