Glidecam 1000 camera stabilization sled 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 Glidecam HD1000 Video 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. This up and down movement alleviates the bouncing-type action.
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 balance. By varying the amount of the eight 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 1000 HD stabilizer offers unparalleled controllability and ease of use with its 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 system’s dynamic balance or to increase or decrease the system’s rotational pan inertia. With the Glidecam HD-1000 you no longer need a tripod or a dolly.
