Should The Glidecam Stay Perfectly Still?

I just got the glidecam 2000 pro yesterday and spent like 3 hours trying to set it up. I got it to 3 seconds of hang time, and I've been trying to fine tune it so it stays perfectly still, by moving the camera plate. Is it supposed to stay perfectly still? It sways slightly if i light it off the table

thanks.

Not "perfectly still", that would be more like a dolly/slider/track system*, remember the Glidecam is made for movement. These are extremely low friction bearing, so it is possible to experience some slight sway when picked up off of a flat surface.

Have you seen this video series: http://www.glidecamforum.com/conf/index.php?showtopic=929

*stay tuned we have a few sliders coming soon
