  1. Hi All, First time to use HD2000. I tried to balance it, however, it appears calibration issue because if I balanced it on 0 degree then the rest like 90, 270,360 is not balanced properly.(drop time test is 2.5s around) So I followed below video to calibrate it and seems it works(although I am not sure if it's 100% calibrated because I can only rely on bubble level shows good). Now I can attach camera with all 360 degrees balanced with bubble level . However, I got one more issue that if I try to hold the HD2000 attached camera move horizontally back and forth, left and right. (Or use my body do 360 degrees rotation.) The camera will have slightly spinning, the shooting spot of the camera will spin the angle originally pointed to --- not stay in one spot . My test followed This Video . The result of my HD2000 is even worse than Flycam. Both horizontal test & 360 degree test make my camera spin without stay in one spot. Does it mean my calibration failed? Or I have other issue with my HD2000 need to be fixed? BTW, my camera is Sony NEX 6. And the camera too light (with lens around 2lb) I have to remove all bottom weights with blank base. I also tried my 5D mark iii with 1 weight on the base for each side. Same result.
  2. We have just created a new channel on youtube to show off all the cool things we are doing up North in Norway and around the world :-) The next couple of months we will do a lot of glide cam scenes of the northern light and whales (orcas and humpback whales). There will also be some time lapses and underwater scenes. HereĀ“s a short sample of the latest project in august - all scenes filmed with glide cam.
  3. I recently bought a Glidecam HD2000 and have had a difficult time stabilizing my Panasonic GH4. I am using a 12-35mm panasonic lens, not using extra battery grip. To give the top plate more weight I have added three plates by strapping them down with zip ties. I only have one base plate on each side on the bottom, and the leverage pole is almost as short as it will go. For the most part it has been fairly balanced but I feel like I have to recalibrate it every 10 seconds and my footage isn't turning out so well. Does anyone have any ideas to how I could fix this?
  4. HelloHello, Hello, I'm desperately looking for a used DGS glidecam. Please respond if you have one for sale, know of one for sale etc. Thanks!
  5. I just recently purchased a Glidecam HD 2000 with a Manfrotto 577 quick release plate. I put the plate on my Canon 600D and when i try to put the plate into the sliding adaptor thing that I had mounted to my Glidecam, it locks in but I am not able to fully tighten the knob. I understand that you can pull the lever out and turn it freely but I still do not have enough space to properly secure my camera to the Glidecam. What do I do so that I can fix this problem. Please help me. The lever keeps hitting the camera and there is no room for the lever to move or tighten. PLEASE HELP!!!!
  6. Hi Recently I shot this video from Dolomites, Italy, Marmolada mountain area. Filmed on a Canon 5D Mark III entirely in Magic Lantern raw format (mlv) 1920x1080 mostly with canon 16-35 f2.8 L II and of course my lovely Glidecam HD2000 Before my trip I was wondering if i should change hd2000 to hd4000, now i think hd2000 is enough and fits perfectly to my setup, i am happy about the final result. Please tell what you think.
  7. Hello! I am a noob to this forum and a newbie to the glidecam. I've searched all over google and the forum for counterweights or weight plates for the hd-2000 but I had no luck with finding any. The glidecam I bought is only coming with a total of 4 weights. I know 4 weights could easily hold my 7d and lens by itself but I do tend to add more accessories to it later on. Would any of you happen to know where to get some counterweights or if just using some weight plates on amazon or a substitute will work just as well as the regular product? Thank you in advance!
  8. Hi, i just received my Glidecam HD2000 today. I started this step by loosening the adjustment clamp, just in case it was too tight. However, when I inserted the telescoping post into the central post, there was a bit of resistance, but I thought it was part of the process, which I quickly realize it was not when a great amount of paint was scratched off from the surface. Is there a way to fix the problem? Is it possible to replace the central post? Thanks in advance, SKeyOK
  9. Hey I'm new here, i bought the glidecam hd2000 last week and since then i've been practicing. I know that i'm not good at it, at least not yet, but i made this video and decided to share it anyway . Hope you liked it. Greetings from Portugal.
  10. 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?
  11. Hope this will help someone out. please ask if you have any questions.
  12. Hi there... I've recently bought a Glidecam Hd2000. Now I have a question about transportation. Is it advisable for me to demount my glidecam before transporting it? I'm worried about the screws at the top and the bottom of the main pillar - but it would fit that way into my carrying case. What do you think? Greets from Germany, Leif
