  1. 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?
  2. I have a Canon 650d and i would like to purchase a Glidecam, with a £550 budget. I currently think my two choices are the Glidecam HD-1000 and the Glidecam XR-2000 what one would you recommend? Any help would be very much appreciated. Thankyou.
  3. Hello! First post here. I'm a travel videographer and bought a Glidecam HD 2000 for my 5D Mark iii earlier this year and absolutely love it. Having a lot of fun playing with different ways of raising it and lowering it to appear like a jib. As far as travel goes, it's the best piece of kit I've come across for multipurpose shooting. I'm hooked! This video is of a pseudo presstrip in a hidden part of Italy named "Basilicata". My DSLR barely left the Glidecam on this one, and I'm very happy with the result. Thanks all! Looking forward to being part of the community (Grrr... typo in the title, sorry)
  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. Visited with Tom at NAB and he was gracious enough to run through the setup and tuning of an HD2000 rig with me in great detail... I rough cut it into 3 parts totaling 38 mins...something there for everyone
  6. My girlfriend, friends, and I went and saw the IAMX Animal Impulses show last night at the Fonda Theater. Today I found this photo on the official IAMX Facebook fan page. It appears to be a Glidecam HD-2000 was used to shoot the IAMX "I Come With Knives" video. How awesome is that?!
  7. i am having trouble with my glidecam balance i know this is a very common question but its really frustrating me i have my glidecam balanced (when its not moving) but when i walk it starts to lean forward (this is just using one hand) when i use both hands it seems to be ok the weight of my hand seems to throw it off track, Running with it is an absolute no no as it has a mind of its own also when the camera is facing forward its perfectly balanced but if i rotate the came 180 degrees it seems to tilt to the right quite a bit and if i spin it around it goes pretty insane & goes all over the place is there anything i can do i have attached a photo of my set up (minus the microphone as i removed it) a more detailed description below Canon 7D Tamron 17-50mm 2.8 VC (with UV filter) Baseplate quick release Glidecam 2 Plates eitherside Drop time 2.5 - 3 seconds - Counted in one-one thousand etc please help
