Glidecam HD4000 overview

  • 1Description

Combining both motorized and mechanical gimbal stabilizer functions, the Glidecam HD4000 Stabilizer with Tru-Horizon Kit from B&H offers the best of both worlds. While the Glidecam HD4000 mechanical stabilizer is effective on its own, adding a the Tru-Horizon brings further versatility to the platform. Since the Tru-Horizon single-axis gimbal always maintains the correct horizon, the HD4000 can now be shifted from low-mode to high-mode without reconfiguring the camera. Check out the individual items included in this kit below for more information.

  • Glidecam HD4000 Stabilizer System

    The Glidecam HD4000 is a lightweight, hand-held camcorder stabilizing system. This system 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.

    Upgrades from 4000 Pro
    This system is upgraded in its gimbal movement and adjustment of convergence and camera balance.
    No Tools
    A no tool telescoping central post allows for precision balance and easy adjustment.

  • Glidecam Tru-Horizon

    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.
