How to Get Amazing Results with Glidecam HD2000

Posted: November 15th, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: Glidecam, video production | Comments Off

As an advertising image maker in Los Angeles, I’m always looking to improve my ability to show my clients and students the best.  The Glidecam HD2000 is amazing easy to get good results as long as you set it up correctly. It takes a little time to balance the Glidecam HD2000 with your video camera. Once you do have the camera and Glidecam set up it is fairly easy to get amazingly steady video while moving in a straight line, raising and lowering or making simple turns. At first, it’s not perfect but far better then handholding much more mobile then slider or jib.

Here is a link to a complete video on how to set up a Glidecam HD2000. http://vimeo.com/91253654

I find it much easier to go though the process with the Glidecam HD2000 on a stand. Once you’re handholding the Glidecam, there will probably just a few further adjustments to finish balancing to you. Just remember the lightest touch to control the direction is the best.
