BTW: here's Vinny's work if you haven't already seen it, check it out:...

Had a chance to meet and briefly work with Vinnie in December while covering Gale Tattersalls HDslr workshop for PhotoMedia Magazine. Nice guy...very willing to share and teach...

He's the one who convinced me to get the HD2000 over the other one for my Nikon D7000/14-24/2.8 setup...

trouble is it looked so easy when he set it up...now I'm in "rotational hell"

4 weights on bottom (2+2), wings extended an inch or so, 2 sec drop time...horizontal and fore/aft balance good...but flat spins on horizontal plane as soon as I start moving...

any ideas? more weight? (I'm at about 3lbs with camera and lens and quick release)

Thanks...Ric

SILKY MOTION WITH ASC APPROVAL: GLIDECAM HD-2000

Glidecam, a standard of quality and value for camera support, recently released its latest product, which has received the seal of approval from cinematographer Gale Tattersall, ASC. Tattersall's introduction to the Glidecam HD-2000 came from seeing the videos of professional skater Vinny Minton, who essentially operates an HD-2000 while inline skating. The results impressed the DP so much that he invited Minton and the Glidecam to assist in shooting an episode of FOX Network's hit series House, and the rest is television history.

The HD-2000's offset, foam-cushioned handle grip is attached to a free-floating, three-axis gimbal. According to Tom Howie, VP of Sales and Marketing for Glidecam, the unit was built to eliminate unwanted movement. "What's great about this unit," he says, "is it has an offset gimbal handle so any of that up-and-down movement is isolated from the camera, preventing the entire camera from moving up and down."

The HD-2000 includes eight custom counterweight plates, a fine adjustment Camera Balance Platform and an integrated quick-release camera plate. List Price: $499.

Contact: Glidecam, (800) 600-2011, www.glidecam.com.
