Glidecam GLARM overview

  • 1Description

Distributes the weight of the system over your entire forearm. The weight of the system is supported evenly by Glidecam's exclusive and unique, exoskeletal forearm support brace. The brace not only provides you with cushioned comfort while shooting, but also eliminates torque, which would otherwise cause stress on your wrist. With the forearm brace, the Glidecam system becomes an extension of the human body for smooth and natural shooting. Works with both the Glidecam 2000 Pro and 4000 Pro stabilizers.

    Glidecam GLARM reviews

    Forearm Brace is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 65.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your Arm Will Thank You! I purchased the Glidecam HD 4000 thinking I wouldn't need a forearm brace, vest, etc. Boy was I wrong. I was wore out after 10 minutes and still had a whole day to go! I recently got the brace and WOW what a difference. I can hold shots steadier, longer and with more confidence. If you need to pull it off in a hurry it's easy to do and as far as I know one size fits all. I'm extremely happy with it. A colleague of mine purchased a cheaper version of this* and his was falling apart the 1st hour of our shoot. I've put mine through it's paces and it looks brand new. The construction quality is great and I strongly recommend it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Make a big difference I got this brace to use with my Glidecam HD4000, which I use with a heavier Canon c100 camera, and other dslrs. Glidecams can be tough to use for more than a couple minutes, and it was torture with the heavier c100 camera. The biggest factor that makes it difficult though is all the weight on your wrist. This brace totally changes the game. It is still quite heavy, and hard to use for long periods of time, but with the weight spread over my whole arm, and not all on my wrist, I was able to use the glidecam most of the day (with breaks of course). It makes a big difference. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because it a bit overpriced. Shouldn't cost any more than 40 bucks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Forearm brace review I've heard a lot of this and that about this product and others related. I still consider myself in the learning stages of the glidecam pro 4000. I'd like to say I am learning fast, and it also takes some time and patience to get used to. The ARM BRACE is great to spread the weight to my forearm and not my wrist. I just used it in a local Music Video for a long running shot through a house, and the combination of the two produced some amazing imagery.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better than the Body-Pod The Forearm Brace definitely allows for longer shots with the Glidecam, but it still isn't perfect. However, I own the Body-Pod as well, and never use it now that I have the Forearm Brace. The Brace is much more stable than the Pod, since your footsteps won't have as much of an impact on your movement. The Brace seems a little pricey for it's construction, but with the help of a ladder you can make your shots appear as if you had a crane on your set. I think this product is a necessity for someone with a Glidecam who can't afford the pricey smooth shooter.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not to shabby but I would have liked less shab. I bought this for doing weddings where I have to be holding my Glidecam for long periods of time. I have to say, this does help a quite a lot with wrist fatigue, however I'm still asking myself why it costs $$. There is nothing fancy about this brace. It is basically a glorified wrist guard the you would wear as a kid while roller blading. At that price point, I would have liked a more comfortable strapping method and a more secure brace. What I mean by secure is that it only has one axis that it really takes the weight from your wrist. If you have the brace positioned flat with the post pointing straight up, all the weight of the Glidecam is supported by the brace. When you twist your arm to one side making the post tilted to the right or the left, the brace will be pulled by the gravity on the Glidecam and want to tilt even more to the side. This requires you to have have to counter the tilt with your wrist. It's not as bad as holding the full weight of the Glidecam, but it can become troublesome when shifting your hand position in a shot going from the 'on axis' support to the 'off axis' support of the brace. In the end, I am happy with my purchase, but I do have my complaints.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bring a small towel and you're set! Shot a music video one weekend with a Glidecam 4000Pro and this Forearm Brace made it possible. I could even wear it while we drove to the next location by pulling out the mounting post. It was a huge relief for my wrist, and once I got comfortable wearing it it was so smooth! If you can't afford the big Arm/Vest setups yet, buy this! It'll save your arm BIG TIME. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED over the Body Pod system. Just make sure you line your arm with a small towel before putting it on; makes it more comfortable and helps absorb inevitable sweat.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great- if you have thick arms I'm 6'2, 175 lbs., and I'm not exactly scrawny. I use a Glidecam HD 4000 and DVX100a, about 20lbs. total for the rig. I shoot wedding videos, so it was imperative that I have support for long holds. First of all, this armbrace is a must if you have any type of prosumer/ professional camera on a glidecam. A Canon HF-10 wouldn't need it, but if your camera is over 3lbs, I highly recommend the armbrace. That being said, I wish Glidecam made this in two sizes. Our 'lighter-built' videographers can't use it very well because it can't cinch up tight enough on their arms. There should be a junior size. Also, be prepared to sweat! When you pull of the armbrace after any usage over 2 minutes (especially in summer) it's going to be hot and sweaty inside.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very necessary for smooth glidecam shots I use the forearm brace with my glidecam 2000 for wedding videos. I shoot with a xh-a1 and the weight of the camera plus the glidecam is too much for ones wrist. So with the use of the forearm brace I am able to use the glidecam for a much more extended period of time, without much strain. My shots are alot smoother and my wedding videos have improved significantly. Great design sturdy build. great product.
