Glidecam 4000 Pro is a hand-held camcorder stabilizing system
designed for cameras weighing from 4 to 10 pounds.
Enter a realm where you are free to move with your
camera; panning, tilting, booming or running without any camera
instability or shake. Enter a place where super-smooth tracking
shots, and the ability to shoot fluid traveling shots from moving
vehicles are not just possible, they're a way of life. This is the
world of the Glidecam 4000 pro.
The Glidecam 4000 pro is newly designed and now has a no-tools
telescoping center post, a sleek and lighter base which allows you
to quickly attach and dynamically adjust the counterweight disks, a
foam handlegrip, a lighter gimbal with a more compact main bearing
assembly and a new yoke design.
The combined results of our new design elements create a
stabilization system that works so gracefully and professionally,
you'll see why the idea of making a camera glide through the air
isn't just a dream, it's a reality.
The Glidecam 4000 Pro's offset handle grip is attached to a free
floating, precision Gimbal, which allows your hand to move up and
down, and side to side, thereby isolating your hands unwanted
motions from the camera. The up and down movement alleviates the
bouncing, pogo type action so often associated with our competitors
system, because their handle cannot move up and down.
The camera platform moves back and forth, and side to side, to
quickly allow you to adjust the cameras horizontal balance. By
varying the amount of counterweight disks on the base platform you
adjust the camera's vertical balance. When balanced properly the
camera floats, ready for you to move into action.
The Glidecam 4000 Pro will support any camcorder or movie camera
weighing from 4 to 10 pounds. It is quick and easy to set up and
balance. Allows unrestricted Booming and unrestricted 360 degree
Panning. Only 20" tall. Made of precision Aluminum. Can also be
used as a Monopod, no-tools telescoping base, with positionable
weight discs that allow you to achieve dynamic balance. You can
easily attach a small LCD monitor to the base monitor mount hole if
needed. Weighs 3.0 pounds without counterbalance disks. Camcorder
