    Nicely done steadicam work with such a light camera! I always had probs moving faster than a walking pace with the HMC40 b/c it was so light the wind would twist it with my preferred balance.

    That event looks like a blast!

    I'm impressed, it appears that the glidecam does a very good job.

    This is it:

    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...er_System.html

    one thing i forgot to mention is that i had twisted my ankle a few days before this ,so the results are not 100%

    I imagine with someone in perfect condition the video could be even smoother ,that said the ground was very uneven when we weren't on concrete or asphalt

    The HMC40 is 2.16 pounds plus the weight of the battery. I would think that the Glidecam HD1000 Stabilizer System (0 --> 3 pounds) would work also and the cost is a bit lower. Not that the Glidecam HD2000 Stabilizer System would have a problem (2 --> 6 pounds).

    Yeah, but what if you've got the XLR adapter, a shotgun mic and cable, and/or a light and lens? That'd put it over 3 pounds, I'd think.

    I have it balanced with the: stock battery , and the wide angle adapter

    But I wanted to have the option of adding more gear onto it ,its also a great arm workout
