Glidecam Introduces the HD-Pro Stabilizer at NAB

Designed for film and video cameras weighing up to ten pounds, the lightweight Glidecam HD-PRO was designed to transform hard to watch, shaky camera footage into hypnotically smooth, professional images.

Glidecam Industries said the Glidecam HD-PRO, at $499, represents the most affordable, full featured, hand-held camera stabilizer the company has ever offered. The HD-PRO’s features combine the best components of the Glidecam HD-Series with some of the high-end professional features normally found on the camera sleds of our more elaborate body-mounted systems.

With the Glidecam HD-PRO hand-held stabilizer, cameras seem to float, always balanced, isolated from the hands. Cameras can be used for panning, tilting, booming or running without any camera instability or shake. The Glidecam HD-PRO works so well that it allows users to create smooth and graceful shots even while going to extremes like running up and down stairs or traveling over rugged terrain.

The precision, camera balance platform (X-Y head, or top stage) incorporates a quick-release, no-tools, slide-in dovetail camera plate, brass alignment pin, spring loaded quick release plate lock, push button quick release that allows users to quickly attach or remove the camera.

Ergonomic, fine-tuning, control knobs allow precise adjustment of the camera balance platform’s front-to-back and side-to-side movement. These controls allow users to quickly adjust the system’s horizontal balance. A no-tools, positionable three-axis gimbal incorporates several adjustable, axis convergence controls. This allows all three axes to intersect for proper operational alignment.
