The amazingly advanced and totally re-engineered Glidecam HD-Series™
from Glidecam Industries represents the top of the line in hand-held
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,
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
Each HD-Series Stabilizer’s 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 hand’s unwanted motions from the camera. This up and
down movement alleviates the bouncing, pogo type action often
associated with our competitor’s 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 stage’s back and forth, and side-to-side
movement. These controls allow you to adjust the camera’s horizontal
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
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
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!
