  2. Provided that the Glidecam is working properly, as far as performance goes - you shouldn't have to do much more that lubricate the Central Bearing assembly. This will NOT void warranty... Just use some light weight oil, such as Super-Lube and that will address the issue...

  4. Glidecam Gimbal calibration

    Kareldb, how are you doing with your Glidecam? If you're still having difficulties, we can solve this issue for you.
  5. HD4000 or HD2000?

    Hi Dylann, You're correct; the Canon 70D is on the lighter side, being that it is under 4 lbs in weight. The Glidecam HD-2000 is the recommended set for the Canon 70D with Sigma 10-20mm . One option would be to add a GLCWP (Glidecam Camera Weight Plate) - this will add weight under the cameras, making the HD-2000 more 'top heavy'... I hope this helps
  6. Sony FS7 & Glidecam

    Hi Josh, Not sure why you are experiencing this issue. Just to note - it appears that you have ALL of the Counter Weights on the Base Platform, which is around 3.5 lbs. in weight. The camera is in a 'High Profile' position and your 'on-camera' monitor mount is on the outside front on the inertial plain of the system... This could be creating an interference. Have you experienced this issue when you're NOT using the Third Party QR Plate? When a problem arises it is useful to separate each component or potential cause. Tom
  7. Flat base?

    Hi Greg, The Glidecam HD-2000 Base Platform is designed and manufactured to be 'Flat' What you have received here is a used Base Platform that has been slightly bent, due to pressure applied to it. This is not entirely detrimental to the performance or the operation of the Glidecam as we have had customer experience this issue many time over the past 25 years... However, if you would like to straighten this out - feel free to do so. This can be done by hand, by removing the weights and bending in the opposite direction, to offset the curve. Or if you wish you can call the Glidecam Office and order a replacement parts. The Glidecam HD-2000 Base Platform sells for $79.00 I hope this helps!
  8. Hi Ferran, Hope all is well and you're getting good use with your Glidecam XR-PRO Here's a video on the XR-PRO that is useful...
  9. Hello Pavel, One hole is a 3/8"-16 One hole is M6 One hole is 1/4"-20 I hope this helps.

  13. Hi Today I've received Manfrotto 577 QR and I have a problem with mounting it on Glidecam. The middle hole is 3/8", front hole is 1/4" but I can't find out what size is the back hole, because neither 3/8" or 1/4" fits in it. My question is, do you know what size the back hole is? Thanks.
  14. Hello all, I've spent most of my day today playing with my new Glidecam XR-PRO. I've got it working pretty well, but I've got this odd 'bob' thats slow and seems to get worse over time. footage looks like it was shot on a ship during a storm, very nausea inducing :-/ I'm hoping to get some general tips on how I should have this set up. Some videos would be great if someone can point me in the right direction. Using this with a Canon 7D and only one lens for now, a very light 18-55mm. I've got two plates plus one small one on each side, and to get my drop to 2-3 seconds I have to shorten the post to almost all the way down. I've spent the last 90 minutes trying to get rid of this wobble and can't figure it out. Any suggestions are welcome. I'm starting to get the hang of it and I think once I get rid of the wobble this will be a great solution for me. Thanks!
  15. Flat base?

    I am new to Glidecam ownership, having just received an HD-2000 that I bought off eBay. The unit seemed well-packed, but the base is bent. It looks like the same curve on both sides. See attached photo. Is it supposed to be flat, or is this the correct shape? Greg
  16. Sony FS7 & Glidecam

    Hi Tom, I've only just seen your response. Here is a picture of my set up. I was using this set up last week and still getting the same issue. I don't understand why? Do you have any suggestions?
  17. Hello filmmakers, I have a Glidecam HD4000 which can handle 4 to 10 pounds (1.8 KG to 4.5 KG) My canon 70D with sigma 10-20mm weights 2,9 pounds (1.3 KG) I know you have to practise alot for getting smooth shots, but is my set-up too light for de HD4000? Maybe a HD2000 is better? I still get some wobble / little shaky footage even when I stabilized it right. Do I just need to practice more or should I sell my HD4000 and get a HD2000? (2 to 6 pounds) Would really appreciate the answers and help!

  20. Glidecam Gimbal calibration

    Why can't you do it yourself? Watch the video.You can do it.
  21. Hello, The gimbal of my HD-1000 isn't calibrated well. It doesn't work to calibrate it by myself. I don't have warranty, how much would it cost to send it to glidecam? Is it worth it to send it to glidecam? Thanks in advance!
  22. Struggling for over a year now...

    Wait it may have just clicked today!!!
  23. I have been using my glidecam extensively for the past year to year and half, and I can't seemed to get it to click. I have tried different drop times, varying amounts of weight, changing the amounts of pressure I use with my guiding hand, etc. But every time I go to look at my footage it is always shaky, wobbly, and just looks like your on a boat. I really love the look of glidecams and how versatile they can be. So it's a big deal to me to become proficient at operating them; I would appreciate any and all input. Gear I'm using Nikon D5200 Glidecam XR-200 P.S. Probably doesn't help that I have really bad Parkinson's
  24. Ultra-Shot plate and Manfrotto

    Just bought an Ultra-Shot. I also have a Manfrotto tripod with 357PLV plate. Does anyone have a solution to have a single plate that works on both. The only solution I have so far is to mount a Manfrotto 357 Rapid Connect Adapter with Sliding Mounting Plate 357PL onto the Ultra-Shot L-Plate and then just transfer the 357 back and forth. Does anyone have another solution? Thanks
  25. Quick release cheese plate

    The Manfrotto QR plate will attach to the top plate you are missing. You probably need to contact Glidecam directly to purchase a new one.
  26. If you are talking about the pin n the quick release plate that is used on video cameras to keep the unit from turning. Not used on DSLR's. If you are not talping about that pin than I am not sure.
