Steadicam + Glidecam Hybrid – Good Idea?

Looks like many others are picking up on the idea of using the Steadicam Merlin/Pilot vest + Glidecam. I've received comments of other people already using the setup, but here's another DIY adapter video that was submitted to me today. This hybrid setup not only gives you professional results, it also saves you money using this combination. Just FYI, there's already a CAD design for a future adapter that is being made for this. The adapter will be available soon, sold exclusively from a company (keep comng back for that information. I'll post it soon).

  1. I was going to buy the all-threads that was used on the original version, but I think the hex bolt makes more sense, and less work since I don't have access to easily cut the all-threads.

    Thanks for sharing!

    ANY word on how much the machined adapter will cost? looks interesting, but won't be worth much since the DIY method is so easily already.
