  1. So I have a Glidecam HD 2000 I am balancing it with my Canon 70D (755g (1.7 lb)) and my lens is the Canon 10-18mm (8.5 ounces or 0.5291 lbs), a am using the Manfrotto 394 RC4 tripod mount (weighing 9.9 ounces) I am struggling to balance it and have struggled for months. I was using one counterweight on both sides on the bottom and someone told me more weight was better for top and bottom. So I put two and tried to mount counterweights on top but have failed so far. Has anyone got any suggestions for me on how I can balance this? and whether adding weight on top is better?
  2. Hi Everyone. I'm new here to the forum and to Glidecam products. So far, I'm a fan for life. They help me create the shots I'm looking for every time. Check out my footage and let me know what you think. Comment on here and on youtube. "Like" it if you do like it too. If you don't like it, well let me know! C Cheers, Ian
  3. I am a new user of Glidecam and purchased my HD2000 two weeks ago. I have a Canon 5d mark 3 and at this moment I am testing with a 24-70 mm F2.8 USM L Mark 1. I noticed that the Glidecam HD2000 is capable of handling equipment up to 2,7 kg. My lens and body are 2,9 kg. Is that a problem? Is it easier to balance and handle a glide cam with a smaller lens, such as a prime 28mm ? Or does it not has to be a problem with the combination I use?
  4. Hey, Just Joined the Forum so please excuse the noobiness. For about two weeks i have been trying to find a good lens to use with my 60D, which is also good to use with the Glidecam HD 2000. Now, as i have a budget of about £600 for the lens, i can't really splash out on multiple lenses for different purposes, or get a lens such as the canon 24-70 L. The problem i have is that i wont use the lens 100% of the time on the glidecam, and i know people say that the really wide lenses such as the Tokina 11-16 are the standard, but for me, that is just to wide to use as an all round lens for cinematic/fiction use. The main lenses i have had my eye on is the new sigma 30mm 1.4, good all round Focal length for cropped sensors with a nice wide aperture so i can get very nice Shallow DOF shots, also the new one has a very nice focus ring, which is always good. However the problem with this is that while 30mm may be versatile for non glidecam use, some say that's its kinda of pushing it on a glidecam, but having not used it on one i don't know. Other lenses i have been looking at are the cropped sensor equivalents to the 24-70, which are the 17-50s, specifically the Sigma/Tamron 17-50 2.8, which looks really good because: They have a fixed aperture of 2.8, they both have OS (Or IS but basicly the same thing, i think..) Focal length of 17mm, which is what i would probably use for Glidecamming, and the ability to go longer when i need it and not using the Glidecam, as well as they are apprently as sharp as your gonna want for video. Now, that all sounds very good but the catch is, that apparently the manual focus ring sucks on both lenses, very shallow, about 30* turn. Which is not a problem on a Glidecam, but when i'm doing shots involving the need to focus, i really want a nice focus ring, without the need for a follow-focus. Thanks alot, and i would be really happy if you guys could help me out. =].
  5. Hi there, I shot a snowboarding video on the first day I got my glidecam HD-2000. It's shot with the Canon EOS 5d mk III and I think it looks great. In a few weeks I'll be shooting a second glidecam snowboard video and any tips and comments are welcome.
