About the Glidecam GL-HD2 HD-2000

The amazingly advanced and totally re-engineered HD-Series from Glidecam Industries represents the top of the line in hand-held Camera Stabilization.

The lightweight and state-of-the-art Glidecam HD-1000, HD-2000 and HD-4000 hand-held Camera Stabilizers will transform your hard to watch, shaky camera footage into hypnotically smooth, professional footage.

The Glidecam HD-Series offers advanced features and a degree of sophistication never before seen in a line of Hand-held Camera Stabilizers.

With the Glidecam HD-Series hand-held Stabilizers your camcorder seems to float, always balanced, isolated from your hands undesirable motions. Now you are free to move with your camera - panning, tilting, booming or running without any camera instability or shake.

The Glidecam HD-Series works so well that it allows you to shoot incredibly smooth and graceful shots even while going to extremes like running up and down stairs or traveling over rugged terrain. And when it comes to normal shooting, like walking or moving the camera slowly around someone, the results are equally magical.

Each HD-Series Stabilizers offset, foam cushioned, Handle Grip is attached to a free floating, three axis Gimbal.  This allows your hand to move up and down, and side-to-side, thereby isolating your hands unwanted motions from the camera. This up and down movement alleviates the bouncing, pogo type action often associated with our competitors system because their handle cannot move up and down.  This design feature, coupled with the overall higher inertia of the  HD-Series systems, produces superior stabilization when compared with our competition.

A unique and proprietary, precision, three axis Gimbal incorporates several adjustable, axis convergence controls.  This allows all three axes to intersect for proper operational alignment.

A camera-mounting platform with a quick-release, no-tools, drop-on camera plate allows you to quickly attach or remove your camera.  Ergonomic, control knobs allow quick, precise adjustment of the top stages back and forth, and side-to-side movement.  These controls allow you to adjust the cameras horizontal balance.

By varying the amount of Counter Weights on the Base Platform, or by changing the length of the no-tools telescoping Central Post, you adjust the camera's vertical balance. When balanced properly the camera floats, ready for you to move into action.

The Glidecam HD Series stabilizers offer unparalleled controllability and ease of use with their unique rigid, yet dynamically adjustable, control and weight distribution surfaces.  Setting up, controlling and adjusting system balance is now quick and precise.

A unique and proprietary Dynamic Base Platform can expand or contract.  This allows you to easily adjust the systems dynamic balance or to increase or decrease the systems rotational pan inertia.

Don't trust all the youtube videos on set up, some are woefully wrong ("hold the post at the bottom otherwise the unit swings back and forward while you move" and such like observations after the rig has not been set up properly. I hang it on a light stand and spend some time to balance it, this gives excellent results, almost as good as steadicam.

Best piece of kit I've bought for my camera. The only bad point I can think of, is if you need to adjust the alignment at all, you need an Imperial sized allen key (the type commonly used in America). I managed to get a set for £3, but it's worth considering just putting one in the box. Still, 100% happy with the product!

After reading reviews and watching videos made using the Glidecam, I bought this for location shooting to provide more options and flexibility without needing to transport dollies, jibs, etc. Set up was straight forward, but took about one hour. After using it for a day, I lightened the weight and extended the center pole which made it easier to handle. Still need to practice, but I am getting good moving shots, fly-in/fly-outs, and circling the subject with limited practice. Sturdy, and reliable addition to our shooting gear. Shipping was fast.

Although this is said to be suitable for a camera up to 6Lbs, I found a camera mass of 4 Lbs 15oz was just too heavy to lift, let alone fly!I am a well built guy,and lifted weights in my youth, but this is just too heavy with anything but a small DSLR. CVP pointed out that I should have known that from the information they supply. They suggested I purchase extra support from them, which I declined.

Frequently Asked Questions

8 question(s) | 8 answers(s)

Can I fit follow focus and field screens to the Glidecam 2000/4000 rigs? I'm working with Canon DSLR camera.

Mark Melling 04-12-2011

Yes, you can use any camera accessories that you require provided your overall weight is within the system's maximum payload.

Hi i wanted to know if this glidecam will work with 650d with 18-135mm lens. thank you

ibrahim 23-10-2012

The camera body with battery weighs 575g and the lens 450g = 1025g = 2.26lbs. You need to add to this the weight of any other accessories mounted to the camera. If the total is less than 6lbs or 2.72kg then yes your rig falls within the rated load range of this Glidecam model.

Would the glidecam gl-hd2 work fine with a canon 60d camera with an ef-s 18-200mm lens?

kobi 15-05-2013

According to the Canon specs, the camera body with battery and memory card weighs 755g and the lens weighs 595g = 1.35Kg = 3lbs. Provided you don't have other equipment attached to camera that weighs more than an additional 3lbs the GL-HD2 should be fine.

Will the glidecam HD 2000 work with my canon 600d, samyang 8mm cine fisheye and rode videomic pro??

Calum 21-05-2013

Your camera body with memory card and battery weigh 570g, lens is 435g and Mic is 85g. Total weight as described = 1.09Kg = 2.4lbs. Load range of HD2 is 2 - 4lbs., so yes it will be fine!

I notice that all the above refer to Canon, I have a Nikon D5100 will the Glidecam 2000 work for me?

Eric Ambler 28-05-2013

Provided the total weight of Camera, Battery, Lens and other mounted accessories falls in the range 2 to 6 pounds, the stabiliser will work fine. The make of camera is irrelevant.

Will the HD-2000 be ok for Canon 6D, 24-105mm f/4 and Rode Videomic Pro?

Tobias 29-11-2013

The Glidecam HD-2000 can manage a payload of approximately 2.7kg. With the Canon 6D, EF 24-105mm and the Rode Videomic Pro the weight would be approximately 1.7kg so there should be no operational issues.

Will this work with the blackmagic pocket camera, the sigma 18-35 1.8, the metabones mft speedbooster and the rode video mic pro on top?

lee mackreath 05-12-2013

Based on the empty weight of the camera and an estimated weight of the metabones (even they don't document the weight) its coming in at around 3lbs. as the HD2000 is designed for 2-6lbs this should sit nicely in the middle meaning its less fiddly to balance. You might want to add a quick release plate (say the MN577) so you can leave the balance close saving time during setup).

What's its Shipping Weight?

Ed Oldfield 30-07-2014

Glidecam advise Shipping Weight is 9lbs = 4.08Kg
