  4. Hi Tom, thank you for making this clear. I assumed that that only the arm makes the difference. Another question, which is important: Is the X-45 sled built to carry up 45 pound cameras or are the 45 pound the weight of the whole sled, including camera, monitor, batteries etc? If it is the latter, the possible camera weight the gimbal can bear would be drastically decreased. I ask because I want to combine the sled with a Sachtler Artemis arm, which can easily carry Alexa cameras with accessories. But can the sled, especially the gimbal handle it? Steffen
  5. Yes, it is still available. Are you interested?

  7. Hello Steffen, Great question, as there is some confusion. Simple answer; they are Exactly the Same There is NO difference between the X-30 Sled and the X-45 Sled Only when they are sold with an X-30 Arm or X-45 Arm does the name distinction apply
  8. Thank you for sharing this Ivan! Looks like a great option from New Seetec0
  9. What are the visual differences between the X-30 and the X-45 sled? How do I know which sled is which?
  10. I have a very rarely used Glidecam X-20 spring arm for sale. It is almost as new because I used the arm only a few times. There are only a few small scratches. The arm is for cameras up to 20 pounds. 1000 €. Buyer pays shipping. Location: Germany.
  11. I found a good alternative to $1200+ daylight viewable monitors. New Seetec (Feelworld trademark) FW279S is superbright. 2200 cd/m2 in specs. In practice easy viewable in direct sunlight where my old 450 cd/m2 monitor still unreadable. Super sharp and equiped with focus peaking, histogram and other assistant functions. HDMI/SDI without cross conversion. NP batteries or 12v powered. Lightweight, plastic housing but strong enough. Good and acourate colors in user mode. http://www.feelworld.cn/ShowInfo.aspx?id=598&py=FEELWORLD-FW279S-7-Inch-2200nit-Daylight-Viewable-Camera-Field-Monitor-3G-SDI-4K-HDMI-Input-Output-1920X1200-IPS-Panel I think for now this is a best daylight monitor for the money. No LUT, no vectorscopes etc. But for $340 i.e 1/4 of IKAN SAGA 7" an excellent work-horse.
  12. Not to hi-jack the thread, but just add in: I have a simulation issue with the HD-2000 I purchased second hand as well. I’ve had it for about a year and have really been practicing very much. I have been experiencing with a light setup (5D Mark IV + 16-35) with 1-2 weights on each side and a heavier setup (5D Mark IV w/battery grip + 16-35 + video mic) with 3-4 weights on each side. Drop time is 2-3 seconds and it hangs perfectly dead when I‘m holding it with my right hand, rotates on its own axis when I spin it, but as soon as I shift to my left hand I have to rebalance it front/back and sidewise. Don‘t believe it should be that way. It also means that level horizon is not possible, almost with the heavy setup, but not as good as I know it can. I have no physical stores near to my home, so I have to order a new one to see if it‘s me or the glidecam that‘s drunk.
  13. Tom, Thank you for your response! For some reason, the horizon seems to sway left to right if there's not a hand there to guide it. Are you not supposed to be able to walk slowly with this system? I would think that would help with stability. After watching several of Stefan Czech's videos, he claimed slow movements were the key to smooth footage.
  14. Thanks for the posting. This is not recommended. Basically this creates a balancing issue. CG (Center of Gravity) is not correctly aligned Horizontal Axis over the Central Post, which is the 'rotational center of gravity'. If the plate is off to the side, the camera may very well end up off to the side as well. And, knowing it is the C100, I would recommend that you center the plate. Here's some great training videos, check them out and let me know if this helps.

  15. Hi all. My friend lent me a Glidecam he uses with a small DSLR. I want to use it with my C100, but as you can see the mounting plate is sitting to the right. I'm sure this will not allow me to balance it correctly....am I right? I'm not sure this plate can be moved to a central position. Any help would be greatly appreciated Kind Regards Daniel
  16. Hi Jared, Sorry to hear about your difficulties! The Glidecam is designed as a 'two hand' operation, however, using "one hand' is just a important. The biggest problem comes with over-controlling with the guiding hand. This leads to instability. With the 2.5 to 3 second drop time, you'll want to adjust the horizontal balance as you've done, then once that is accomplished. Fly the Glideca, by walking in a straight line and do not use your guiding hand. Also, keep your 'wrist' solid/locked. Like you are sawing a piece of wood for example... Just walk straight. DONT walk slowly walk a around 2.5 MPH. Do this and you'll be headed in the right directions. Do this indoors (no wind) Let us know how it works out
  17. Hey guys! I am new to the Glidecam and I am also new to the forum. I recently purchased a used Glidecam HD-2000 from eBay. The item is in good condition. Like most people, I got the device and immediately attempted to balance it after watching the plethora of YouTube videos and wanted to start flying the system. Once I did that, I was unable to keep a true and level horizon no matter how careful I walked. After much research, I determined that my gimbal needed calibration. I attempted this, but was not able to get it myself. Tom/Glidecam had me send the system in to get calibrated and I got it back this week. I've been messing with the system since then. I believe part of my issue originally was that I had too much weight on the bottom. Though my drop-time was 2-3 seconds, I opened myself up for too much of the pendulum effect. I think I now have the correct combination of weight on top and bottom as well as the pole length. I still struggle with a straying horizon. Should I be able to fly the system 1 handed in a forward motion and it stay truly level? I realize there is a learning curve for these systems and I want to LOVE this system, but right now, it is just frustrating and I can't seem to keep a level horizon no matter what I do. Any suggestions or tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated!!
  18. I know this is an old post but I purchased a hd4000 from ebay but did not come with the counter weights. After seeing the price over £50 I measured the 2 that came with it and got them lasered and they are perfectly the same. I would post a photo but can't upload a file larger than 0.5mb lol.
