There are several reasons why I choose to use a Glidecam over other stabilizers. For one, the build quality is excellent. I have had two Glidecams, the HD 2000, and the new Devin Graham series. Both of these are sturdy and hold up.
It can be a challenge at first to get stable shots, but once you get the hang of it you are in control not software. I personally like the fact that I can challenge myself to get better each time I grab for the unit. I can’t stress it enough….Practice Practice and more Practice.
I have been working in television and media for over 18 years. My experience includes news photojournalist, editor, producer and storyteller.
