HD4000 or HD2000?

Recommended Posts

Hello filmmakers,

I have a Glidecam HD4000 which can handle 4 to 10 pounds (1.8 KG to 4.5 KG)
My canon 70D with sigma 10-20mm weights 2,9 pounds (1.3 KG)

I know you have to practise alot for getting smooth shots, but is my set-up too light for de HD4000?
Maybe a HD2000 is better? I still get some wobble / little shaky footage even when I stabilized it right.

Do I just need to practice more or should I sell my HD4000 and get a HD2000? (2 to 6 pounds)

Would really appreciate the answers and help!:blink:

Hi Dylann,

You're correct; the Canon 70D is on the lighter side, being that it is under 4 lbs in weight.  The Glidecam HD-2000 is the recommended set for the Canon 70D with Sigma 10-20mm .

One option would be to add a GLCWP (Glidecam Camera Weight Plate) - this will add weight under the cameras, making the HD-2000 more 'top heavy'...

I hope this helps
