What's the best way to secure this to the top of a Glidecam 2000HD? A camera quick release bolt works ok but ideally I want more than one spot to keep it from twisting on the Glidecam top plate
Asked by: David S.
This specific weight plate for the Glidecam 2000 is not a good match, and you may find its too heavy if you're wanting just a little top heaviness. Even so, if you manage to align two holes from this plate on top of the Glidecam 2000,you'll find the size and hole placement of this weight-plate does not allow any centre alignment at all, and once you do successfully screw it on, an excess of plate will be hanging off one side or the other. You should be able to find the perfect sized nut and bolt at your closest home depot, just two pairs of nuts and bolts would do the job, and might need a bolt slightly longer than the camera quick release bolt, just by couple mm.And even if you wanna balance this oversized plate ontop of the Glidecam 2000, you'll find after screwing this thing on there will be no placement holes for your actual quick release plate, maybe but in an undesirable place for practical uses. So its pointless.My advice would be to install your quick release plate on top of your glidecam, as far back on the Glidecam surface as possible, then there will be available holes in front of your quick release plate where you can bolt on a normal extra weight plate, the ones provided with the glidecam, in front. If you bolt it downwards you should have no problems with any obstruction of camera plate or lens when you mount your camera. You can fit upto two plates with no problems, with only one bolt, with no rotation issues, since the shape of these plates should fit quite snug against your release plate, there are only so many configurations on this surface.This will provide good top heaviness, as well as front heaviness though, which can be accounted for.Hope that helps! Merry X-Mas and a Happy New Year to all u star shooters. Payce!
