Glidecam GLCWP reviews

Camera Weight Plate is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Deal for a High quality Plate How I used this product:I bought this plate as a base for my customized spider dolly. I placed some skateboarding wheels at the end and a fluid head on top of the plate.What's great about it:First, this is a very sturdy plate, very heavy, made of strong steel. I saw many people used wood to make a customize dolly base. The wood is weak and unlike this plate, probably can't support a lot of weight. Also, this plate was only about $! That is a great deal. ... I used this plate to customize a dolly, so I don't know how accurate this review is for other purposes. But I can tell you that this plate is strong, sturdy, and at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Cheeseplate and DIY projects. I purchased this plate to use as a cheeseplate for my DSLR Canon7D. It has worked wonderfully! Its is strong and well built. It has a variety of sizes of drilled holes for mounting your rod system, your accessories and whatnot. It is heavy, but not too heavy. We all know that DSLR set ups should be as light as possible..and this plate delivers! I have also seen other people use this for baseplates for small table dollys and I have not doubt that this is better than any cheap aluminum plate you can buy @ a harware store. Also this has a nice black finish and looks great alongside my other gear. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Mistake Ever Two years ago I made my worse mistake in quite some time - rather than weigh my SONY HDR-FX7 I estimated its weight, over-guessing by 30% (the camera weighs in under 5 pounds). And in doing so I bought the Glidecam 4000 Pro stabilizer, and have never been able to use it with that camera. But now with my purchase of the Camera Weight Plate by Glidecam, I can now use the stabilizer with both my FX7 and my heavier cameras. This simple little device not only saved me lots of money I would have spent on an additional stabilizer, but I can transport one stabilizer for my cameras rather than two or more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job but built somewhat poorly It does the job it's meant to do (add weight to the upper axis of my glidecam for a lower drop time with my GH4) but, as I believe other reviewers have noted, the holes on the weight plates and the glidecame 4000 pro baseplate do not match up exactly. I was able to overcome this with some creative fastening but could be problematic to some purchasers. Seriously, it's a slab of metal with holes punched in it, you would think they would go to the effort of matching it to the product they're accessorizing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Secret Weapon!! I would have given this little guy 6 stars if they made one a bit more heavier as I had to stack 2 of these onto my Glidecam HD4000, but either way it works like a charm! just the perfect thing I needed to get my balance just right. I was surprised on how incredibly cheap it was compared to others in the $200 mark!! its a solid durable plate. scratches easily, but a weight is a weight. It does its job perfectly! would purchase this again and again if I had to! highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I was able crank up the weight of my gh2 for use on a glidecam 4000. I used two of these and they worked exactly as I hoped. Price is very reasonable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice weight and very holey! So full disclosure I bought this for a DIY project. I'm using it as the base plate on my video dolly. The weight is nice to lower the center of gravity of the dolly. Tolerances on the holes seem pretty nice. As I'm only using it for 1 purpose I can't comment on the layout. I have noticed that after about a week of screwing and unscrewing the dolly the paint comes off quite easily. I don't care at all, but much some of you might. This has worked out pretty well for my specific purposes!
