    Monitor Attachement Rigs For Glidecam

    In response to austinmartfilms question, the reason to have a monitor at the base of the sled is to be able to see your framing AND keep an eye on your walking path so you don't trip. Moving the monitor to the rear of the sled would not be to your advantage; you want to be looking more forward and down, not straight down.
  8. I just bought an XR-2000 and realized it didn't come with a head/top/cheese plate for the glidecam. I looked around and found that no one sells a top plate for it. Is there any place that I can get the part or am I better off just making my own.

    Red One With Glidecam Hd4000

    This question I should have asked long long ago...but...did it work?....will be great to actually know.
  10. Thanks Tom. The feet - I've got 4 on, equally spaced so hopefully that will be ok. But worst case I will try without (just makes it harder to put down). I guess I can find something similar to replace them with. I have got a good drop time, and regarding the centre of gravity - that is just based on making the fine-tuning adjustments , yes? If so, I have done that. I seem to have it balanced but it's wobbling still. I think the problem may be the weight at the top isn't enough. It's a GH5 and only tried it so far with the 12-35mm lens (I have some larger heavier lenses but not tried them yet). Am I right in thinking if the weight at the top isn't enough - even with a good drop time - that could cause a wobble? I've literally not had chance to try more weight since thinking about this but hope to try later either with a bigger lens, or putting some weights on the top etc. Thanks John
  11. Hi johnrrr, It is important that your center of gravity (horizontal) is over the central post, so with the monitor 'flipped out', that would me a differing placement than if the monitor is retracted inward. Then, remember you'll want a 2.5 to 3 second drop time (vertical) balance, so the Glidecam is neither too top heavy, or bottom heavy. The rubber feet are relatively inconsequential, however, that primary goal is symmetrical place of weight and CG alignment, therefore it stands to reason that you either use ALL or NONE, but this could also be a little nit-picky, as I have seen many Glidecams is terrible condition and been amazed at the quality of the shots that were obtained. Make sure any Third-Party items are secured properly i.e. "Small Rig Cage"
  12. I am surprised at this Timberbrother goose down sleeping bag. It’s narrow as many mummy shape sleeping bags, which perfectly fit my body without feeling too cramped. The premium YKK zipper to be an excellent choice since it allows a fast manipulation of closure, while giving a certain consistency to the whole. Lower part is quite narrow and allows the down to perfectly stay in place following the movements of its occupant. The down behaves very well, its inflating gives complete satisfaction both in terms of efficiency of comfort. Only a little upset, the look and design is normal and could be better, but we find the smile by seeing the price, very correct for a product ultimately finalized..
  13. Basically, I'm always getting a little bit of wobble. Anyone have any ideas or can confirm whether I can use a cage/flip screen etc? Thanks
  14. Hey all, brand new user, HD2000. Having problems balancing (surprise!) Can someone please advise me - am I ok leaving my GH5 in its smallrig cage (with handle)? And am I ok having the flip screen out? I've got really close, but not perfect. Drop test is fine, but spin test tends to go off. One other potential problem. I picked it up second hand and I just noticed today that some of the rubber feet are missing. There was one more on one side than the other. I've now removed one from the other side so it is more balanced (there are two on the left hand side of one of the feet, and two on the right hand side of the other). Could this be causing the problems with spinning? Should I take them all off? Thanks!

    Cannot balance my Sony rx 100 mark 5

    Find the cameras Center of Gravity and at this balancing point, position the center of gravity over the central post of the Glidecam and which ever hole aligns with the hole in the camera mounting plate, use this one. email me direct at tomh@glidecam.com and I can assist you further, or call our offices at 781-585-7900

    Can anyone help me fix this. Xr-pro

    too bottom heavy, you can see in this video that you are close to correct balance, however, the bottom heaviness of the sled is causing the Glidecam to sway. Shorten the telescoping post by 1.5" and try for a 2-3 second drop time.
  17. Hi Jeff, Are you flying your Glidecam with the 2-3 second drop time? There is some subtlety to setting up and balancing a the Glidecam. Maybe email me directly at tomh@glidecam.com and we can make sure your setup correctly Tom

    DGS Gimbal Position

    Gimbal postion is relative, obtaining good balance is the primary goal - so if you can achieve a 2.5-3 second drop time with your DGS and a6300, then that is good. More weight does equal more inertia and stability, so this will increase smoothness with more weight, but no need to over do it

    Glidecam XR 2000

    Add a little lubrication to the central bearing that this will reduce this. Any slight sway should be controlled lightly with the guiding hand
  21. The Manfrotto 577 QR is a useful plate that many customers add to the XR-PRO for around $35 USD

    Slight rotation to the left

    Are you noticing this in the video footage? When wide angle this slight rotation to the left might not be perceivable

    GlideCam 2000 Pro bearing

    There is a method of relubrication that could cure this issue. Have you considered this? It is a simple, multistage oiling proceedure.

  26. I have tried about 3 full days configuring the horizontal balance of my iglide for my sony rx100 mark 5 and i still cannot balance it no matter what. Please help... after 3 days im so frustrated. Firstly which is the correct hole im supposed to screw the camera onto? Secondly Am i supposed to add more weights or take out weights?
  27. Hello, I own a glidecam Devin Graham version. And planning to buy a vest so I can run longer with a Ursa mini pro. But all the movies, higher end music video's have really smooth steadycam work. Is it possible to get that exact same precission withe a glidecam Devin Graham series. Is it really just practicing? (because I cannot find any video that is perfectly stable, as I have seen clips of steadycam operators flying an alexa around which are perfectly stable). What would be the best set up for flying a ursa mini pro around? As I want to deliver these services to higher end music video's but I need to nail it first before I can offer these services. And I dont want to be stuck with only super wide lenses. I prob will be flying mostly with a 35mm. Thanks,
