Camera Hire now stocks the Glidecam HD-4000 camera stabiliser. Description from Glidecam below:
The re-engineered Glidecam HD-4000, from the HD-Series from Glidecam Industries, represents the top of the line in hand-held Camera Stabilisation. The lightweight HD-4000 hand-held Camera Stabilisers enables camera footage to be shot as hypnotically smooth, professional footage. With the Glidecam HD-4000 stabiliser the camera seems to float, and is always balanced, isolated from your hands undesirable motions. Now you are free to move with your camera – panning, tilting, booming or running without camera instability or shake.
The Glidecam HD-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 HD-Series Stabiliser’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 HD-Series systems, produces superior stabilisation 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.
A camera-mounting platform with a quick-release, no-tools, drop-on camera plate allows you to quickly attach or remove your camera. Ergonomic, control knobs allow quick, precise adjustment of the top stage’s back and forth, and side-to-side movement. These controls allow hire customers to adjust the camera’s horizontal balance.
By varying the amount of Counter Weights 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.
The Glidecam HD Series stabilisers offer unparalleled control and ease of use with their unique rigid, yet dynamically adjustable, control and weight distribution surfaces. Setting up, controlling and adjusting system balance is now quick and precise.
A unique and proprietary Dynamic Base Platform can expand or contract. This allows you to easily adjust the systems dynamic balance or to increase or decrease the systems rotational pan inertia. Shot after shot, move after move, the Glidecam HD-Series Stabilisers deliver beautifully smooth and professional results. Contact us to rent the Glidecam HD-4000 from Camera Hire.
