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.
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

three axis Gimbal incorporates several adjustable, axis convergence
controls. This allows all three axes to intersect for proper
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

ease of use with their unique rigid, yet dynamically adjustable,
control and weight distribution surfaces. Setting up, controlling and
