Glidecam Introduced Low Priced Stabilizer at 2016 NAB

At 2016 NAB, Glidecam introduced the XR-Pro, its lowest priced stabilizer that can handle cameras up to 10 pounds in weight.

Glidecam said the idea behind the XR-Pro is to provide customers with a budget-friendly and versatile stabilizer that can handle a wide range of camera and accessory weights — all while offering the upmost quality.

The XR-Pro comes with four steel camera platform weight plates that enables the use of very light cameras – this is what allows for such a significant camera weight support range.

The XR-Pro is enhanced with a new head design, which has a customized bottom plate that allows for more accurate side-to-side movement to ease the set-up process. The new head design facilitates faster mounting of cameras and quick release plates.

Like all Glidecam stabilizers, the XR-Pro will transform shaky footage into hypnotically smooth, professional footage by isolating the hands undesirable yet inevitable motions. When balanced properly, the camera will seem to effortlessly float.

Upon mastering the skill and art of using a Glidecam XR-Pro, users will be free to direct and move with your camera – panning, tilting, booming or running without any camera instability or shake.

The list price is $289.00

The iGlide II is the ideal companion for the on-the-go videographer who shoots with small and lightweight cameras. It is sized to be easily stored and is very portable.

The iGlide II has the same high-end gimbal that is unique to Glidecam, and it also comes with four small steel camera platform weight plates should the operator want to add more mass and more inertia with the use of extremely light cameras.

It is priced at $249.00.
