Hello all, I've spent most of my day today playing with my new Glidecam XR-PRO. I've got it working pretty well, but I've got this odd 'bob' thats slow and seems to get worse over time. footage looks like it was shot on a ship during a storm, very nausea inducing :-/ I'm hoping to get some general tips on how I should have this set up. Some videos would be great if someone can point me in the right direction. Using this with a Canon 7D and only one lens for now, a very light 18-55mm. I've got two plates plus one small one on each side, and to get my drop to 2-3 seconds I have to shorten the post to almost all the way down. I've spent the last 90 minutes trying to get rid of this wobble and can't figure it out. Any suggestions are welcome. I'm starting to get the hang of it and I think once I get rid of the wobble this will be a great solution for me. Thanks!
7/8/2016 Great review on the NEW Glidecam XR-PRO Excellent stabilizer on a budget. By Rom I got this because my Ronin-M has to be sent back for service. Why? Because some water splashed on one of the gimbal motors. Yes, I wasn't supposed to be filming at the beach, and thought I would be careful enough with it. Anyhow, while the Ronin flies to Germany or China for DJI repair, I needed something in the meantime and saw the new XR-PRO. For less than the cost of a new gimbal motor, I could have a stable rig for my GH4 + 12-40 f/2.8 + RODE mic. Not bad. I got it, and after watching a few YouTube videos on how to stabilize it - it is an absolute peach to work with. So much easier to work with than the Ronin - and I have far more control over the look of a shot than the Ronin. It also is easier to cart around without needing an assistant to bring the Ronin stand for me everywhere I needed to set down the Ronin. It also is at a more natural height for shots, and allows me to see the monitor on my GH4 naturally without needing a remote monitor feed like I do on my Ronin. So far, very much enjoying the Glidecam and recommend it - particularly at this price point Glidecam: http://glidecam.com/product-xr-pro B&H: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1234136-REG/glidecam_glxrpro_xr_pro_handheld_camera_stabilizer.html#customerReview Video:
