Dear Glidecam,

For several months I have been using the Glidecam 1000 with my Panasonic EZ1 digital camera and I have been greatly impressed with the handibility and versatility of this well made product. As a user of Steadicam Jr. with other camera models, I can assure you that you have a great product.

I know that most letters you may get may state alot of the above mentioned items, but let me tell you how the Glidecam has been used. We had a difficult shot we were doing in conjunction with a local school board and Six Flags Theme parks. In this case they needed a line stated on a rollercoaster. The budget nor time would accommodate a mount for the rollercaster. I held the camera using the Glidecam 1000 and Got the shot in two takes! And What a Ride!

I have enclosed a picture of the last shoot we did working with the IFC-International Fighting Championship. This is no rules fighting which was held in Mobile Alabama. Even though the fight was not going to be officially televised or on Pay per View, Steady movements of the action to include the fighters entering and exiting the ring was what was needed for future highlights of this event. Again the Glidecam came through giving the shots needed at a greatly reduced cost than that of purchasing OR renting dolly's or more expensive shot stabilizing equipment.

I certainly intend to look into purchasing other Glidecam products as you have systems that do work and ones we can definitely use in making our programs and production cost effective. My firm has two Telly awards along with being the recent recipient of A Creative 96 Gold Medal for video production, some of which was shot with the Glidecam. Thanks Again!
