Can you please share a Photograph of your Glidecam HD-4000 setup, as you operate it?

Hi Tom, 

I've only just seen your response. 

Here is a picture of my set up. I was using this set up last week and still getting the same issue. I don't understand why? 

Do you have any suggestions?

Hi Josh,

Not sure why you are experiencing this issue.    Just to note - it appears that you have ALL of the Counter Weights on the Base Platform, which is around 3.5 lbs. in weight.

The camera is in a 'High Profile' position and your 'on-camera' monitor mount is on the outside front on the inertial plain of the system...   This could be creating an interference.

Have you experienced this issue when you're NOT using the Third Party QR Plate?  

When a problem arises it is useful to separate each component or potential cause.
