Glidecam XR-2000 overview

  • 1Description

The Glidecam XR-2000 Handheld Camera Stabilizer With 577 QR Plate Kit from B&H Photo represents an affordable way to put your compact camcorder on a floating platform, enabling you to capture the types of professional handheld shots that add dynamic flair to any video production.

The included Manfrotto 577 Rapid Connect Adapter with Sliding Mounting Plate (501PL)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.

Smooth camera movement that ranges freely in every dimension is not something you can achieve via dollies or shoulder-mount rigs. For truly unfettered, floating camera moves, you need a gimbal-based camera stabilizer.

The XR-2000 is a complete handheld system, with a dynamic camera platform that will allow you to mount & achieve proper balance for your small to medium camcorder (2-6 lb), a telescoping central post that allows you to adjust the height of the unit, and a balance platform that supports any combination of the included large and small counterbalance weights.  At the center of everything, however, is the three-axis gimbal that lets the camera handle move freely while the rest of the stabilizer stays upright, thereby eliminating the shake that plagues most handheld camerawork.

The design of the Glidecam XR-2000 is tool-free, so you'll be able to set up and achieve balance easily & quickly every time. With practice you'll be steering your camera through three dimensions naturally and smoothly without a second thought, as if the camera platform were a cloud floating through calm skies.

For long periods of operation with the XR-2000, you will no doubt benefit from the addition of an optional support accessory (sold separately), such as a Body-Pod, a Forearm Brace, or an X10 or Smooth Shooter arm/vest support.

Glidecam XR-2000 reviews

XR-2000 Handheld Camera Stabilizer With 577 QR Plate Kit is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best choice on a budget This is far from the best Camera stabilizer, but for the price nothing can really compare to the quality of shot it gives you. Its rough to set up the first time, make sure you get the Quick Release plate.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to mount ave handle I am a photographer lady stating on the videography side as well. I was directed to this product by another videographer. The assemble was very difficult and the quick release that I bought separately didn't work The product is very heavy for those who are not used to it and it slides too fast making it hard to keep control. I am not saying it doesn't work. I'm saying it didn't work for me. I decided to save money to get something that will work for me later.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the GlidCam!! This is perfect for my Canon 6d with 35mm Rokinon and Rode VMP set up. The qr plate makes using this 100 times better and so much easier to use on the go. However, sometimes the qr plate can get lose on the top of the cheese plate, I suggest getting some kind of pad in between the plate and the cheese plate to fix this. I used some drawer liner to fix this issue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the glidecam, not the plate The glidecam works incredibly smooth, and it really doesnt take much time to stabilize once you understand how it works. I decided not to use the plate though because it wont let me fully tighten it if i use a hole in the center of the cheese plate, i have to use the one on the far right.
