Glidecam Steps into the Gimbal Arena with a Prototype

by No Film School

Glidecam, known for their camera stabilization and support products, finally steps into the brushless gimbal market.

Sporting a similar style as popular gimbal forerunners Ronin and MōVI, it weights 3lbs and will support a payload of up to 5lbs. It can switch between following the angle of the handles, locking the tilt axis, and locking all rotational axes. A tilt offset is also available via buttons on the handle. The battery appears to be non-proprietary and will last 4-6 hours and detaches from the handle mount easily to support attachment to other rigs such as jibs. It is currently in the last stages of prototyping and will debut late summer at $1799.
