Overview

The amazingly advanced and totally re-engineered Glidecam 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 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 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 have a t3i with a battery grip and a rode mic and it works perfectly with the hd2000. I wouldn't buy one anywhere else, uniquephoto provided awesome customer service and very fast free shipping (I live in oregon and it shipped from New Jersey in 2 days).
