An interview from the 2017 International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam with Bill Holmes of Glidecam. 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. In this interview Bill shows off the new Glidecam HD-Pro.
The Glidecam HD-Pro’s all-new, and meticulously designed, features combine the best of the HD-Series creating a system that now accommodates a wide range of cameras. Designed for film and video cameras weighing up to 10 lbs. (4.53 kg.), the lightweight Glidecam HD-Pro will transform your hard to watch, shaky camera footage into hypnotically smooth, professional footage.
With the Glidecam HD-Pro hand-held Stabilizer your camera seems to float, always balanced, isolated from your hands undesirable motions. Now you are free to move with your camera – panning, tilting, booming or running without any camera instability or shake.
The Glidecam HD-Pro 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.
