Anyone have any experience with this setup? It's very attractively priced, and since I wasn't doing well building my own I am seriously considering buying it.

Glidecam Smooth Shooter


Thanks!

I?ve been using the glide cam on my last shoot. I?m shooting the Z1U. I really enjoy it. Handles like a Steadicam. It may be a little squirlier because of the lack of weight of the camera. It balances well. I found I had to operate right side because of the view finder. I?m a right side Steadicam operator so that suited me find. I?m just used to having any camera on my right side. I don?t like the weighting system. I kept hitting my knee into it. It?s also not build very stringy. I already broke the plastic clamp on the counter weight. That was on day two. It seems like a great way to learn Steadicam and get your moves down for a very inexpensive cost.

I'm not a Steadicam operator. I've only done it a couple of times. And the word is fine not find.

The word would be strong not stringy.

I'm tired just got home from my shoot.
