  • 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 X-10 Dual Support Arm Stabilizer Vest System

    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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but... ok firstly, i totally love my glidecam x10, it is an amazing product, i get hired enough for it. But as much as i love it, i can't say it has no defects.- quick release is no quick (you have to get through 5 screws to get the camera off, it is fixable but you have to buy additional gadgets, or make them your self.- the sled has no video ins and outs so if you want to use a monitor you have to tie the cables around the poles (which could be uncomfortable)- the straight handle of the HD4000 was tough for being used hand held, not with an arm and vest, this causes problems when you have to do some difficult turns, you get stuck with yourself. (this can be fixed by buying of making a curved handle for it)- If you wan't to put your HD4000 in low mode you have to buy addition gadgets from glidecam what a surprise or of course you could make them yourself.- the vest knobs for adjusting the sled direction are really hard to use, because of course you have to do it with the sled on and turning those little knobs with all that weigh is kind of hard.on it's favor:it does a really great job stabilizing if that's your inquiry, but a lot depends on the operator.the price i believe it should be around $$ less but it's not bad if you compare with the big brands and what it can do, it's really affordable.i've carry a Black Magic with matte box, filters, follow focus and lens with no problems. and also a Sony F3 with all that on but took the arm to the limit, which i didn't like so much, but it worked and resisted in the end.I would recommend this product but if you have some more money go the the next level with glidecam x22 or steadicam pilot or scout, also sold here in B&H .
