Glidecam HD2000 overview

  • 1Description

The Glidecam HD2000 Stabilizer System With 577 QR Plate Kit from B&H Photo is a lightweight, hand-held camcorder stabilizing system that includes a Manfrotto 577 Rapid Connect Adapter with Sliding Mounting Plate (501PL). 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.

The Manfrotto 577 gives you the freedom to switch your camera from the Glidecam to a tripod and back again quickly. Compatible with the 501PL (old 3433PL) camera plate (supplied with the 3433, 3460, and 3465 heads) and the special 501PLONG accessory plate.

Glidecam HD2000 reviews

HD2000 Stabilizer System With 577 QR Plate Kit is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Unit, easy to balance, but it takes a lot of strength. I am being fair and giving the unit itself 5 stars, however the Manfrotto plate will not work with DSLR cameras. It is made for elongated movie cameras that match the footprint of the base. The DSLR being wide and shallow in length, will not allow for tightening the plate. I would not buy this unit with the plate, but search for a quick connect that has a tightening lever which clears the base of the camera. Luckily I attached my Kirk L bracket to the camera, which provided enough clearance. You still have to mount it off center, because the lever will not clear the base. Makes it harder to balance, but it can be done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A whole new world just opened up I've been holding off on buying the glide cam hd 2000 for sometime now. Which was a big mistake . With a little patience and some finesse it took about a solid week to get this down to the point where i can walk,run and do everything its intended for..Product is solid and has and unlimited uses

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The glide will be great, 577 fail! I bought this thinking it's basically plug and play. It's not - many videos on the web on how you need to modify the QR. I spent nearly 2 hours trying to get the QR on and working. Well, you can't use the locking pin, there are videos saying you need duct tape, take off the locking lever on the 577 - because you can't tighten it while the camera is on...I could go on. But the glidecam - skip the 577 and go with another QR option.Lost a $40 filter when the camera fell off. The $1K lens was fine....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product! I ordered this for my latest project. It took an hour or so to balance my 60D but once I figured out how to quickly do it, it takes me a few minutes each time I pull it out to use. The quick release needed some modifications. I drilled holes in the glidecams release plate so the 577 qr would be able to fasten correctly to the glidecam. I've only had it for a week now but I am getting better and better at shooting smooth footage with it. I would recommend this to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome once you master it This is one of the best stabilizers out there (assuming your camera weight and weight distribution match up to it). The gimbal market has a lot of improvements to make before gimbal stabilization becomes the standard for regular consumers, and this glidecam setup is ideal for smooth shots that really create great movement. It takes a while to get used to, but when people see you using this at events, your credibility as a filmmaker or videographer skyrockets.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Steep learning curve and unpractical in the field. The cost doesn't make up for the amount of time and energy to balance this thing. It's great for a dslr setup but then again why buy such a huge and bulky setup when there are gimbals that are much more practical for shoots on dslrs. It's just not logical to buy this thing regardless of what your gear is. The cost for real gimbal systems are about what you would pay for this. I ended up going with a Ronin MX.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good bang for your buck Great tool. With a good amount of practice you can get some very steady shots. I would rate this 5 stars, however I feel the included quick release plate isn't long enough. The tightening knob on the side of the plate barely clears my camera, so I have to always make sure the camera is pushed as far forward on the quick release as it will go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes practice, but you get excellent results I use the glidecam to shoot walking/tracking shots of hosted web videos. It definitely takes a few shoots to get used to it, and I would recommend practicing a lot before any paid gigs, but it's worth the effort. Your production value is way higher with a tool like this. Love the fine-tuning screws on the plate, it makes a huge difference.
