Seeing how we are able to achieve very high quality video on many of the new compact point and shoot systems today, Glidecam has recently released a mini version of video camera stabilizers. The Sony RX100 point and shoot which produces high quality video and only weighs under 9 ounces. Even a Sony NEX6 with Pancake lens should come in around 12 ounces. The new iGlide line of stabilizers are designed to fly cameras weighing up to 14 ounces.
The Glidecam iGlide Handheld Stabilizer for 14 oz Cameras (Black) is a very lightweight stabilizer for use with GoPro and other small cameras weighing up to 14 ounces. A camera mounting plate with 1/4" mounting threads is integrated for attaching a camera. You can also use the stabilizer with an iPhone via an optional iGlide Adapter.
The new iGlide stabilizers are available in standard Black or more colorful options for under $150 dollars via B&H (click here).
Glidecam iGlide Video Camera Stabilizers
Has anybody used this for the Canon Vixia hf r300? The camera is 9.9 lbs.
@Bill - Yup, I bet you just need to add a little extra counter weight to this by using washers or something.
I need only another ounce and a half to make this work with my Panny TM900. Do people think I can mod it someway to accomodate this little bit of extra weight?
I think this would be a great option to more weight capacity Tehkron Mini-I still maintain the portability and easier set up I think solid build.
If you want something seriously smooth, even with GoPro, you use tools like this.
Getting to 90% impressive is easy, the last 10% is what's hard.
WHY the colors? Keep it classy in black Glidecam
You don't need this kind of stuff for a GoPro when used at it's maximum wide angle setting together with the suction cup mount/holder as "glide stabilizer" : It's pretty well stabilized this way 🙂
For compact cameras this kind of stuff can be interesting when you are moving around, but for GoPro ?! NO!!!
iGlide's, Y U No come in red!?
REALLY unnecessarily bulky.
