Glidecam Industries, Inc. has billed itself as "The Name and Future of Camera Stabilization", and it is in this light that they introduced the worlds first body mounted, camera stabilization system for cameras weighing up to 10 pounds. This was the Glidecam V-8 introduced in 1997, with its exclusive and unique "Orbit Hinge" technology and compact "Dyna-Elastic Arm" design. It is also in this light that Glidecam introduced its "Gold Series" in 1999. The Glidecam Gold Series offers the very high end customer a top of the line body mounted stabilizer for cameras weighing from 13 to 38 pounds. The Gold Series again combines Glidecam's high technology with common sense ideology approach, creating a product that is sophisticated, highly aesthetic and far more affordable than the competition's high end equipment.
Glidecam has become the world leader in its field because it combines the best practices with the best thinking, and in the end it is this combination that the customer wants.
Glidecam Industries Inc. offers a wide variety of camera stabilizers (camera stabilization systems) for use with motion picture cameras, video cameras, and video camcorders. These hand-held and body-mounted camera stabilizers create super smooth shots, and allow the operator to walk, run, go up and down stairs, shoot from moving vehicles, and travel over uneven terrain without any camera instability or shake. Glidecam camera stabilization products make ideal camera accessories and can easily replace or be used in conjunction with dollies and tracks, booms, camera cranes, and tripods, or monopods. Both professional filmmakers and amateur movie makers alike can enjoy the fluidity and grace that Glidecam camera stabilizers provide.
