Glidecam 2000 Pro, Glidecam 4000 Pro and Camcorder not included.
The Glidecam Body-pod is a lightweight, rigid support system which, when used with a Glidecam hand-held stabilizer**, the Glidecam Body-pod allows all the weight of the system to be supported by your body. The Body-pod allows you to shoot in cushioned comfort for indefinite periods of time. It takes the stabilizer's weight out of your hands and arms and displaces the weight onto your waist and shoulders. Stress and fatigue are virtually eliminated, allowing you the freedom to shoot events that require uninterrupted shooting. The Glidecam Body-pod is designed to allow you to quickly slide the handle of either the Glidecam hand-held stabilizer** on and off its rigid support, so you can quickly switch back and forth between hand-held stabilization shooting and body mounted shooting.
Since the support of the Body-pod is rigid and for the most part inflexible, it will not absorb and smooth out camera movements as well as a stabilizer which is being held in just your hands. However, shooting with your stabilizer attached to the rigid support of the Body-pod still yields results that are far better than unstabilized, hand-held shooting or shoulder supported shooting. Once you get used to using the Glidecam Body-pod, you won't want to shoot anything without it.
** The Glidecam Body-pod is designed for use with the Glidecam XR-2000, XR-4000, HD-2000, HD-4000 and the DEVIN GRAHAM Signature Series Glidecam Hand-held Stabilizers.
