The Glidecam HD2000 is a lightweight, hand-held camcorder stabilizing system. This system is upgraded from the 2000 Pro and offers fine adjustments and an improved gimbal and balance system.
Camera stabilization systems like this one work to provide camera stability during movement for dynamic and subjective camera shots. It utilizes a balancing system that dampens the user's body movement, providing a smooth, floating moving image appearance usually achieved with more expensive equipment.
Upgrades from 2000 Pro
This system is upgraded in its gimbal movement and adjustment of convergence and camera balance.
A no tool telescoping central post allows for precision balance and easy adjustment.
The GLIDECAM SMOOTH SHOOTER is the World's most sophisticated and affordable body mounted Camera Stabilization System designed for Cameras weighing up to 10 pounds**. The GLIDECAM SMOOTH SHOOTER system will allow you to walk, run, go up and down stairs, shoot from moving vehicles and travel over uneven terrain without any camera instability or shake.
The SMOOTH SHOOTER system works by isolating your body's motion from your camera, while your camera is balanced in a relatively motionless and isolated state. The SMOOTH SHOOTER'S Support Arm can be boomed up and down, as well as pivoted in and out, and side-to-side. It is the combined booming and pivoting action of the Support Arm, which isolates your motions from the camera in a way that creates smooth camera footage.
The GLIDECAM SMOOTH SHOOTER does not come with a Glidecam HD-2000 or Glidecam HD-4000; however, it is specifically designed to be used with them. If you already own one of our hand-held stabilizers, then you will be able to use it by simply attaching it to the end of the Smooth Shooter's Support Arm. Neither the Glidecam HD-2000, nor the HD-4000 need to be modified to work with the GLIDECAM SMOOTH SHOOTER. You can use your camcorder's flip out LCD monitor, or a monitor that is attached to the base of your Glidecam 2000 Pro or 4000 Pro. This allows for remote viewing of the camera's image without disturbing the orientation of the system.
When using the Glidecam HD-2000 or Glidecam HD-4000 in hand-held mode, it is your arm that carries all of the weight. However, when the HD-2000 or HD-4000 are used with the SMOOTH SHOOTER, it is the SMOOTH SHOOTER'S Spring-loaded Support Arm that carries all of the weight. Because of this, you will now be able to shoot for extended periods of time, whereas before, the stress associated with hand-holding the weight reduced your shooting time.
The GLIDECAM SMOOTH SHOOTER is not just an affordable replacement for the Glidecam V-8; it is a highly developed and meticulously engineered camera stabilization system. Its ability to shoot smooth imagery within its weight range is extraordinary. It out performs all of the competition in its class, yet remains truly economical. The SMOOTH SHOOTER is the realization of the need to stabilize lightweight cameras using the same degree of sophistication employed to stabilize heavy cameras. With the GLIDECAM SMOOTH SHOOTER you will be able to acquire the type of smooth footage you've always dreamed of.
