The amazingly advanced and
re-designed Glidecam XR-Series™ from Glidecam Industries
brings versatility and affordability to the world of Hand-Held
The lightweight and state-of-the-art Glidecam XR-4000 hand-held
Camera Stabilizers will transform your hard to watch, shaky camera
footage into hypnotically smooth, professional footage.
With the Glidecam XR-Series hand-held Stabilizers your camcorder
seems to float, always balanced, isolated from your hands
undesirable motions. Now you are free to move with your camera -
panning, tilting, booming or running without any camera instability
The Glidecam XR-Series works so well that it allows you to shoot
incredibly smooth and graceful shots even while going to extremes
like running up and down stairs or traveling over rugged terrain.
And when it comes to normal shooting, like walking or moving the
camera slowly around someone, the results are equally magical.
Each XR-Series Stabilizer's offset, foam cushioned, Handle Grip is
attached to a free floating, three axis Gimbal. This allows your
hand to move up and down, and side-to-side, thereby isolating your
hand's unwanted motions from the camera. This up and down movement
alleviates the bouncing, pogo-type action often associated with our
competitor's system because their handle cannot move up and down.
This design feature, coupled with the overall higher inertia of the
XR-Series systems, produces superior stabilization when compared
with our competition.
A unique and proprietary, precision, three-axis Gimbal incorporates
several adjustable, axis convergence controls. This allows all
three axes to intersect for proper operational alignment.
The Camera Mounting Platform can be adjusted to move back and
forth, and side to side, to quickly allow you to adjust the
camera's horizontal balance.
By varying the amount of Counter Weight Disks on the Base Platform,
or by changing the length of the no-tools telescoping Central Post,
you adjust the camera's vertical balance. When balanced properly
the camera floats, ready for you to move into action.
