Glidecam X-45 PROFESSIONAL CAMERA STABILIZATION SYSTEM
Glidecam X-45
Glidecam X-45 Professional Camera Stabilization System

Description:

The Glidecam X-45 is a highly advanced, professional camera stabilization system designed for film and video cameras weighing from 25 to 45 pounds. The Glidecam X-45 System incorporates advanced engineering and precision machining, making it the most sophisticated and versatile system in its price range.

The Glidecam X-45 system will allow you to walk, run, go up and down stairs, shoot from moving vehicles and travel over uneven terrain without any camera instability or shake. The complete X-45 system is comprised of a Support Arm, a Support Vest and a Support Sled.

The Glidecam X-45 system works by isolating your body's motion from your camera, while your camera is balanced in a relatively motionless and isolated state. The Glidecam X-45's Support Arm can be boomed up and down, as well as pivoted in and out, and side-to-side. It is the combined low friction booming and pivoting action of the Support Arm that isolates your body’s motions from the camera enabling you to create super smooth moving camera footage.

The Glidecam X-45 is a highly developed and meticulously engineered camera stabilization system. Its ability to shoot smooth imagery within its weight range is extraordinary. It out performs all of the competition in its class, yet remains truly economical. With the Glidecam X-45 you will be able to acquire the type of smooth footage often required in today’s competitive production environment.

Glidecam X-45 Support Arm

The Glidecam X-45’s Dyna-Elastic™ Dual-Articulating Support Arm incorporates 18 precision radial bearings within its machined T6 aluminum structure. The placement and implementation of these double-shielded bearings produce minimal friction and allow the X-45 Support Arm to pivot and boom smoothly, and with virtually no noise.

Four Titanium Extension Springs are employed within the Support Arm’s hardcoat anodized Exo-Skeletal Shells. Utilizing Class Three Levers, the energy of the Extension Springs acts upon internal Fulcrum Points, and provides the Support Arm with its lifting power. The spring tension is field adjustable and allows for varying camera weights. The X-45 Support Arm can hold a total combined Camera and Sled weight up to 70 pounds.

A key design feature of the Support Arm is that it incorporates  Light-Force™ technology. This literally means that only a "light" force or effort is required by the operator to hold the arm at any given position, or to boom the arm up and down. It is this Light-Force™ feature that provides the operator with the optimum amount of camera buoyancy or float.


Glidecam X-45 Sled

Glidecam X 45

The Glidecam X-45™ Sled is designed to hold film and video cameras weighing from 25 to 45 pounds. The X-45 Sled incorporates sophisticated engineering and precision machining, making it both lightweight and strong.

The Glidecam X-45™ Sled is comprised of four major components. These are the Camera Balance Platform, the Three-Axis Gimbal, the Dynamic Base Platform and the Telescoping Center Post.

Camera Balance Platform

Glidecam X-45

The precision, Camera Balance Platform (X-Y Head, or Top Stage) incorporates a quick-release, no-tools, drop-in Dovetail Camera Plate that allows you to quickly attach or remove your camera. Ergonomic, fine-tuning, control knobs allow quick and precise adjustment of the Camera Balance Platform’s front-to-back and side-to-side movement. These controls allow you to quickly adjust the system’s horizontal balance.

Three-Axis Gimbal

Glidecam x-45

A unique and proprietary, precision, no-tools Three-Axis Gimbal incorporates several adjustable, axis convergence controls. This allows all three axes to intersect for proper operational alignment. By changing the location of the Gimbal on the Central Post, you can quickly adjust the system’s vertical balance. For improved operator control, a very tight knurling has been machined onto the Gimbal Tube.

Dynamic Base Platform

The unique and proprietary, Dynamic Base Platform is designed to manually expand or contract. This allows you to easily adjust the system’s dynamic balance, or to increase or decrease the system’s rotational pan inertia. The X-45’s Dynamic Base Platform can be set up with up to 3 Anton Bauer Batteries or up to 3 V-Mount style Batteries. The Glidecam X-45 sled also includes a Glidecam 7” HD Monitor, a custom LCD Battery Plate, and a BNC-to-BNC/RCA video cable.

Telescoping Center Post

Glidecam X45

The Glidecam X-45 Sled has a lightweight and rigid, no-tools, 1.75” diameter, Telescoping Center Post. This allows you to easily adjust the sled’s length and the position of the LCD Monitor and Battery.

Glidecam X-45 Support Vest

Glidecam x45

The Glidecam X-45 Support Vest is lightweight, comfortable and can be adjusted to fit a wide range of operators. High endurance, dual density, EVA foam padding and integral T6 aluminum alloy create a vest which can hold and evenly distribute the weight of the system across the operator's shoulders, back, and hips. For safety, quick release, high impact buckles allow the vest to be removed quickly. The Vest’s outer shell is made of 1000 denier cordura fabric, and 7-panel seat belt strapping, noted as being the best in the industry.

X-45 Support Arm Specifications:
• The Support Arm can be setup and configured so either a left-handed, or a right-handed operator can use the system.
• X-45 Support Arm Weight: 13.3 lbs.
• Made in USA.

X-45 Support Vest Specifications:
• No-tools adjust, break-away safety system.
