Glide Gear SYL 3000 overview

  • 1Description

The SYL-3000 Camera Stabilizer by Glide Gear is a bow-shaped handheld stabilizer designed for shooting smooth, shake-free videos. It can hold cameras up to 3 lb and can be individually balanced for each camera with the included counterweights. You can also adjust the camera screw 2" fore and aft to help with camera balance.

The stabilizer is made from non-rust stainless steel and aluminum and features a foam grip on the handle for added comfort, especially if filming in cold weather. A carrying case is included for easy transport.

A gimbal joint prevents angular disturbance and hand shake from passing to the camera
A tracking knob above the gimbal joint allows you to control and aim the camera with your thumb while holding the grip
By loosening the 360 nut you can change the angle of the handle, giving you a wider range of motion
Camera cushion strips reduce vibration and help keep your camera in place when mounted on the bow arm

    Glide Gear SYL 3000 reviews

    SYL-3000 Camera Stabilizer is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product once you get it balanced The SYL-3000 is definitely a must have product for smooth footage indoors and outdoors when shooting on the move. I use this with my Canon T2i to get stable walking/running shots that are difficult to get while shooting handheld. Only thing I didn't like about this product is the time it takes to balance it correctly before you can start filming. Having to constantly add/remove weights can be frustrating in the beginning but in the end the results are worth it. I wouldn't recommend using this for time-crunched video shoots since it takes a few minutes to set up correctly but if you're not pressed for time then this is a great product to have in your stash of video equipment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not a bad start... I use this with my Canon 80d and, like some of the other user reviews mentioned, I had to go to a local hardware store to purchase more fender washers for additional counter-balance weight. The lens I have is an 18 - 135mm and it's probably too heavy. I knew I'd be pushing it after looking at the weight capacity this device supports. I'm going to try it with a smaller, lighter lens and see how it goes. But overall, it's not a bad start. It works just as it's supposed to, but I just can't get it perfect with the heavy lens I'm currently using.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worth a try When i initially saw this, i wanted to give it a try, as i did. All stabilizers will give you a headache at first. I did get the hang of it, but still felt like this wasnt even close to a pro piece. So i decided to take it back, and go for something a little more pricey. But to learn and get the hang of how a stabilizer works, this is a great stepping stone. If you master this, you'll be good on almost anything. Give it a shot, but if u got the extra bucks, go a little higher in price range. hope this helps.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Appropriate That's exactly it. I put a Fuji x-e2 with a Fuji 18-55mm on it with a small Rode videomic go on top. Total weight: 2.09 lbs. It is the heaviest it can carry, unless I somehow succeed in putting extra weights at the bottom. Balancing it is actually quite intuitive, and the rest is practice, I guess. Should have maybe gone for a heavier model.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Glide Gear SYL-3000 I'm using this product for real estate videography and find that this product takes some time to get comfortable with and longer to master. You need to have some patience if you want to effectively. This is a grate tool for the tool box once mastered. So far, my only gripe with product is the build quality of the grip. The foam grip had ripped on the fist day of use. Not a big deal but annoying.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I'm a beginner filmmaker and this is a great product that helps to make my films look more smooth and a bit more professional. It's hard to understand how it works in the beginning with all of the balancing and finding the perfect motions, as it just takes practice to get used to. I would definitely recommend it to all beginners!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from a very good stabilizer for the money Product as advertised. very good quality and works very well with mirrorless cameras like an nex. I am pleased with my purchase and the case that it comes with is a uge plus
