  • DNA 5050 Professional Camera Stabilizer

    The DNA 5050 Professional Camera Stabilizer from Glide Gear is a handheld stabilizer made for DSLR or video cameras between 2-7 lb. It is designed to keep your camera free from hand shake and vibrations while also keeping it stable and balanced for a smooth floating-camera appearance in your videos. The three-axis gimbal joint allows you to move in all directions while the camera maintains its balance.

    An easy release camera plate allows you to attach and remove the camera without the use of tools. For balancing the camera horizontally, the plate’s control knobs can adjust the mount forward, backward, and side to side. The vertical balance is obtained by adjusting the height of the telescoping center post and by changing the amount of weight on the base platform. A foam cushioned grip on the handle reduces fatigue and adds comfort, especially if you're shooting in a cold environment. A carrying case is included for easy transport.

Glide Gear DNA 6001 reviews

DNA 6001 Vest and Arm Stabilization Kit with DNA 5050 Stabilizer is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Price/Gear...Not a bad choice at all I use this product for a multitude of reasons. If you know what this item is then you get the idea. The material is strong. Arm tension mechanisms are sterdy and crisp. Locking points are connected Vwell. Vest is extremly versatile. Lots of body figures and fit to it. The cases that come with it are full of storage spaces. Plentfull amount of weights. Extremly adjustable weight section.Slides & different points etc.((Could be improved*))The attaching plate holes could be a variety of sizes so that anyone with any camera can find an easy accesible point to lock their camera to the plate. I was using Sony nex-fs 100 with a variety of sizes on the undercarriage of the camera.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great One-Stop Starter Stabilizer Solution So far, I'm very pleased with the DNA 6001/DNA 5050 Kit. Everything looks and feels substantial and solid. Once you have taken the time to correctly balance and tune the kit, you will see a dramatic improvement in the smoothness of your shooting. Remember: a stabilizer doesn't miraculously turn you into the world's greatest cinematographer! You need to do the prep-work and take the time to practice. The first drawback I had with this product was the instruction manual. Some of the setup steps are a little vague, but ultimately it's easy to figure out. I watched a few YouTube videos to help with the setup and balancing process which proved to be instrumental in getting my rig configured correctly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Price, Great Product I purchased the DNA 6001 Vest and Arm Stabilizer Kit to use with My Canon EOS C100 with Sigma 18-35 Lens with Rode Video Mic all of which was purchased from B&H. Balancing my C100 was easy with a 40mm Pancake Lens however I need more weights if I was to use my Sigma 18-35mm Lens. I contacted Gliedgear and they were happy to send me additional weight disks in a few days. The company have pretty good customer support. I really love the Vest and Stabilizer arm. It allows me to get some pretty amazing shots and less weight on my wrist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy This Now At $ you cannot beat this system. It is surprisingly good. I watched a few pieces of test footage with this product before buying it, and I was a little nervous as it is the least expensive system I could find, but there is no reason to be nervous, this product is excellent and turned out to be my favorite piece of gear!I bought this product to use in professional applications such as independent films and music videos and it has impressed me. The quality of materials and build of the product is solid and durable. I use the Lumix GH4, Bower 35mm T1.5 cine lens, ikan DSLR baseplate and Dot Line Follow Focus F1 system on top of this thing. It's a little over 7 lbs, but I think that helps it. Really, the more weight you can get on the stabilizer, the better it will be. You could use this system with a DSLR or a camcorder. You could even get a stripped down RED on it if you wanted to.Set the telescoping arm all the way to the bottom for the best result. The farther away you can get the counterweights from the camera, the better.These types of stabilization systems have a high learning curve by nature. I admit, this product is not the seamless Steadicam Zephyr and will take some time to learn. But if you're willing to be patient, it is a great investment for a variety of professional uses!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Best option for wedding videography
Date published: 2014-06-09
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fair gear, but glitchy Solidly built, but the spring has a tendency to squeak when under load. Also, I have difficulty keeping the camera from swiveling erratically when I am using the product in an active situation. This makes for shots that, while steady, are jumpy and hard to correct digitally. Good value for what you pay, but if you want a really good system, you're going to need to pay more.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Jumpy, noisy, and stiff Had a tendency to fly up and made noises when doing so. Even with proper weighting, it had no resting position.
Date published: 2015-09-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relieves the Stress I bought this rig because I do a lot of video work with my DSLR and battery pack. Having old worn out shoulders was cutting into my shooting time. I had tried other stabilizers, as well as shoulder rigs, but weight was always a problem for me. The Glide Gear Vest has totally eliminated that issue. It took a little bit of time to get everything set up the way I wanted it, but once I got it dialed in, I don't know how I ever did without it. Two things: First is that it is not a Steady-cam (who can afford one of those), but it definitely is more stable than handheld. The second is that if you change lenses after you have the DNA 5050 all balanced out, you may need to do a little adjusting. That's to be expected. It's not a big deal though as the X and Y axis adjustment screws have plenty of throw. Making those adjustments is a very small price to pay if you are on a long shoot.
