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.
Shot after shot, move after move, the Glidecam HD-Series Stabilizers deliver beautifully smooth and professional results. With the Glidecam HD-Series you no longer need a tripod or a dolly. All you need is your Imagination!

I bought this piece of kit 12 months ago and have been really pleased with it. Seems pretty robust, nothing dropped off or broken yet and I'm always lugging it around with me. I generally mount my Canon 7D on it with a wide 11mm lens, but have used a Z1 on a BBC thing I was shooting on and it coped fine.It takes a bit of getting used to. Don't think you can just mount it and hey presto amazing shots. Stick with it however and give it a bit of practise and you can get some great looking footage. (Check some of the stuff on YOUTUBE / VIMEO, some great stuff on there). I think the main thing is not to think of this as any kind of steadi cam alternative, on bigger shoots with good budgets I'd go for a steadicam op always, but if your budget doesn't allow, or you only need a few shots, you can't go wrong with this. Considering how expensive lots of kit in our profession is, this is relatively cheap but what you get is a big hike in production value if you can use it well. Also, it's small, and once you are familiar with balancing it, it's a breeze to set up.Pros - 1. Hike production value for relatively cheap. 2. Small and light weight for taking around with your kit.Cons - 1. If you are using this for prolonged periods, you will get an aching arm and sometimes a rather wonky feeling back.2. As with all things, practice. If you don't use it well, your shots will look pretty dire if it's swaying all over the place.
