Balancing Glidecam in Africa

You think you've got it tough when balancing your Glidecam at home? Well, you might be thinking differently after seeing this next video. Having just received the Glidecam HD1000 without testing things out, Adam was out in Africa and needed a bit more help getting things fine tuned. Talk about DIY and ingenuity, these guys took their time to make something look OEM, instead of just duct taping some random weights. Very cool video from Vimeo member Adam, thanks for sharing.

  1. Cool story.
    I commented on the Vimeo page that Adam should have stayed in contact with this guy.
    Guy in Africa could probably make an entire living on fabricating these weights and selling them on eBay.

    Looks like you may have too much weight...you can tell by the pendulum-like movement in the video. Maybe try to raise the vertical adjustment.
