Glidecam HD2000 overview

  • 1Description

The Glidecam HD2000 Stabilizer System with Porta Brace Case Kit from B&H packs a camera stabilizer and a proper caddy for both the Glidecam HD2000 and your existing compact (2-6 lb) camcorder. The Glidecam HD2000 is a handheld gimbal-based stabilization system that can connect to a support arm & vest (optional – not included) to enable the capture of smooth, shake-free video as you walk.

Constructed of 1000 denier Cordura nylon, the Porta Brace carrying case is designed to protect & transport your HD2000 as well as your camcorder – it's got foam stabilizer blocks, a padded interior divider kit, and a camera cradle to keep the two main pieces of gear from knocking into one another.

  • 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 HD2000 reviews

HD2000 Stabilizer System with Porta Brace Case Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth it! Do not let Glidecam's terrible website fool you. They make a darn good stabilizer! I use this without a stabilizing arm/vest or arm brace and a Steadicam Merlin with the stabilizing vest/arm (1year at this point). The HD2000 is by far the superior product. Cheaper, better design, more versatile, and it allows a longer drop time. The design helps absorb the up and down movement of walking unlike the Merlin which places the handle directly under the center of mass. Yes it is heavy. But you have options. You can spend the extra $2k on the x10, an extra $100 on the forearm brace, or you could actually go to the gym you've been paying a monthly fee for. In a perfect world I would have definitely bought the X10 with this but did not have the capital. After using it for a couple weeks the forearm brace is sounding like a better and better idea. I have had some issues with the balance staying perfect after some bumps and such but nothing like I had with the Merlin. This system can actually lock down rather than just staying snug at best. Not to mention, you can actually set this down without ruining the balance. FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD get a quick release assembly. I use the 577 Rapid Connect but anything that allows you attach or remove the camera without disassembly. I tend to just always leave a tripod plate on my cameras so I don't have to deal with losing it or attaching it the same every time anyways. This Porta Brace bag is huge! I'm not sure what to fill it with but it's nice to have options. The HD2000 takes some getting used to but once you do it should yield some impressive results.
