|The Glidecam 4000 Pro is a hand-held camcorder stabilizing system designed for cameras weighing from 4 to 10 pounds.Enter a realm where you are free to move with your camera; panning, tilting, booming or running without any camera instability or shake. Enter a place where super-smooth tracking shots, and the ability to shoot fluid traveling shots from moving vehicles are not just possible, they’re a way of life. This is the world of the Glidecam 4000 pro.The Glidecam 4000 pro is newly designed and now has a no-tools telescoping center post, a sleek and lighter base which allows you to quickly attach and dynamically adjust the counterweight disks, a foam handlegrip, a lighter gimbal with a more compact main bearing assembly and a new yoke design.The combined results of our new design elements create a stabilization system that works so gracefully and professionally, you’ll see why the idea of making a camera glide through the air isn’t just a dream, it’s a reality.The Glidecam 4000 Pro’s offset handle grip is attached to a free floating, precision Gimbal, which allows your hand to move up and down, and side to side, thereby isolating your hands unwanted motions from the camera. The up and down movement alleviates the bouncing, pogo type action so often associated with our competitors system, because their handle cannot move up and down.
The camera platform moves back and forth, and side to side, to quickly allow you to adjust the cameras horizontal balance. By varying the amount of counterweight disks on the base platform you adjust the camera’s vertical balance. When balanced properly the camera floats, ready for you to move into action.
The Glidecam 4000 Pro will support any camcorder or movie camera weighing from 4 to 10 pounds. It is quick and easy to set up and balance. Allows unrestricted Booming and unrestricted 360 degree Panning. Only 20″ tall. Made of precision Aluminum. Can also be used as a Monopod, no-tools telescoping base, with positionable weight discs that allow you to achieve dynamic balance. You can easily attach a small LCD monitor to the base monitor mount hole if needed. Weighs 3.0 pounds without counterbalance disks. Camcorder not included.
