  • Glidecam HD2000 Stabilizer System

    The Glidecam HD2000 is a lightweight, hand-held camcorder stabilizing system. This system is upgraded from the 2000 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 2000 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 Smooth Shooter Support System

    Glidecam's Smooth Shooter System is designed to be the first truly affordable professionally inspired camera stabilization system. Designed to work with Glidecam's existing 2000 and 4000 Pro units, as well as the HD-2000, HD-4000, XR-2000 and XR-4000 units. The Smooth Shooter is the perfect solution for the prosumer video camera weighing up to 10 lbs. Running, going up and down stairs, and even shooting from moving vehicles is all possible without camera instability or shake.

    Simply attach a compatible unit to the Smooth Shooter's patented Dyna-Elastic arm, you will be able to achieve the type of tracklike footage you've always dreamed of. The distribution of weight across your whole body (instead of just in the arm) will allow you to shoot for extended periods of time.

    Track-like Imagery
    Glide effortlessly over rough terrain, giving your footage the much needed edge clients love.
    Dyna-Elastic Arm
    Lightweight and Strong, the Dyna-Elastic wields two high-carbon alloy springs capable of holding camera loads up to 10 lbs. The Smooth Shooter's arm can be moved up and down, absorbing vertical shock, which results in ultra-smooth camera movement.
    Inter-X-Change System
    Changing springs is easy with the Inter-X-Change System. The Arm can be set to use one or two springs, capable of holding 9 and 18 lbs. respectively.
    Smooth Shooter Vest
    The adjustability of the Smooth Shooter Vest ensures it will fit almost any body type. The vest makes sure weight is distributed evenly across the whole upper body, resulting in less fatigue. The quick release buckles allow for quick and easy removal, while the seven-panel seat belt strapping guarantees a tight fit.

Glidecam HD2000 reviews

HD2000 Kit 1 Stabilizer System is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from HUGE DIFFERENCE on your Moving Shots! I bought this kit to use while making an independent film, and now I use it for ALL of my WEDDINGS! It really makes a huge difference on moving shots! It gives your moving shots that smoothness you need to make your shot look very professional. It is VERY TRICKY to learn how to use it at first, so don't expect it to magicly work for you instantly. Give it time, and PRACTICE! You MUST balance it correctly! Go to YouTube and search for video tutorials on how to properly balance it; it's not HARD, but it is TIME CONSUMING, so have patience and DO NOT skip any steps. Also, when balancing, don't forget to add all items you will have during the shoot (camera with light, microphone, even the tape/memory card, etc.). If your camera has an LCD screen MAKE SURE it is OPEN when you balance it (every variation will slightly throw off its balance). I HIGHLY recommend this kit to anyone who's serious about their moving shots and wants GOOD quality for a relatively low price. Sure there are much better ones out there, but they are a LOT more expensive too. Also the kit itself will save you some money versus buying both items separately (which you'll need anyway). If you do professional video (weddings, events, etc) the cost of this item will pay for itself within a couple of gigs.
