About the Glidecam X10

The GLIDECAM X-10 is a highly advanced, professional camera stabilization system designed for cameras weighing up to 6 pounds when used with the Glidecam 2000 Pro, or for Cameras weighing from 4 to 10 pounds when used with the Glidecam 4000 Pro. The GLIDECAM X-10 system will allow you to walk, run, go up and down stairs, shoot from moving vehicles and travel over uneven terrain without any camera instability or shake.

The GLIDECAM X-10 is very similar in design to the Glidecam Smooth Shooter; however the X-10 comes with both sections of its support arm being able to move vertically, whereas the Smooth Shooter comes with only the front section of its support arm being able to move vertically. Also, the X-10 comes with a trimmableArm-to-Vest Connector, whereas the Smooth Shooter's Arm-to-Vest Connector is nottrimmable.

The GLIDECAM X-10 system works by isolating your body's motion from your camera,while your camera is balanced in a relatively motionless and isolated state. TheGLIDECAM X-10'S Support Arm can be boomed up and down, as well as pivoted in andout, and side-to-side. It is the combined booming and pivoting action of the Support Arm that isolates your motions from the camera in a way that creates smooth camera footage.

The GLIDECAM X-10 does not come with a Glidecam 2000 Pro or a Glidecam 4000 Pro;however, it is specifically designed to be used with them. If you already own one of our hand-held stabilizers, then you will be able to use it by simply attaching it to the end of the GLIDECAM X-10's Support Arm. Neither the Glidecam2000 Pro, nor the 4000 Pro need to be modified to work with the GLIDECAM X-10. You can use your camcorder's flip out LCD monitor, or a monitor that is attachedto the base of your Glidecam 2000 Pro or 4000 Pro. This allows for remote viewing of the camera's image without disturbing the orientation of the system.

When using the Glidecam 2000 Pro or Glidecam 4000 Pro in hand-held mode, it is your arm that carries all of the weight. However, when the 2000 Pro or 4000 Pro are used with the GLIDECAM X-10, it is the GLIDECAM X-10's Spring-loaded SupportArms that carry all of the weight. Because of this, you will now be able to shoot for extended periods of time, whereas before, the stress associated with hand-holding the weight reduced your shooting time.

The GLIDECAM X-10 is a highly developed and meticulously engineered camera stabilization system. Its ability to shoot smooth imagery within its weight range is extraordinary. It out performs all of the competition in its class, yetremains truly economical. The GLIDECAM X-10 is the realization of the need to stabilize lightweight cameras using the same degree of sophistication employed to stabilize heavy cameras. With the GLIDECAM X-10 you will be able to acquire the type of smooth footage you've always dreamed of.

Glidecam X10 Features

  • THE GLIDECAM X-10 SUPPORT ARM
  • The GLIDECAM X-10's Dyna-Elastic Dual-Articulating Support Arm incorporates 38 precision radial bearings within its machined T6 aluminum structure.
  • The placement and implementation of these double-shielded bearings produce minimal friction and allow the Dyna-Elastic Support Arm to pivot and boom very smoothly, and with virtually no noise.
  • Four high-carbon alloy, Extension Springs are employed within the Support Arm's hardcoat anodized Exo-Skeletal Shells.
  • Utilizing Class Three Levers, the energy of the Extension Springs acts upon internal Fulcrum Points, and provides the Support Arm with its lifting power.
  • The spring tension is field adjustable and allows for varying camera weights.
  • The proprietary spring Inter-X-Change system makes the installation and removalof the springs quick and easy.
  • The Support Arm can be setup and used in either aTwo-Spring Mode, or a Four-Spring Mode.
  • In the Two-Spring Mode, the Support Arm can hold a total combined camera and hand-held stabilizer weight of 9 pounds.
  • In the Four-Spring Mode, the Support Arm can hold a total combined camera and hand-held stabilizer weight of 18 pounds.
  • A key design feature of the Support Arm is that it incorporates our Light-Forcetechnology.
  • This literally means that only a "light" force or effort is requiredby the operator to hold the arm at any given position, or to boom the arm up and down.
  • It is this Light-ForceTM feature that provides the operator with the optimum amount of camera buoyancy or float

  • THE GLIDECAM X-10 SUPPORT VEST
  • The Glidecam X-10 Support Vest is lightweight, comfortable and can be adjusted to fit a wide range of operators.
  • High endurance, dual density, EVA foam padding and integral T6 aluminum alloy create a vest which can hold and evenly distribute the weight of the system across the operator's shoulders, back, and hips.
  • For safety, quick release, high impact buckles allow the vest to be removed quickly.
  • The Vest's outer shell is made of 1000 denier cordura fabric, and 7-panel seat belt strapping, noted as being the best in the industry.
  • The Glidecam X-10 Support Vest incorporates a unique and proprietary Arm-to-VestConnector that allows the angle of the Support Arm to be adjusted relative to the Support Vest.
  • This Trimming Mechanism allows you to neutralize the weight of the Support Arm relative to your body's center of gravity. When set correctly the effort required while shooting is greatly reduced.
  • Another unique and proprietary feature of the Arm-to-Vest Connector is that it allows the Support Arm to be attached and removed from the Vest without affecting the operator's selected trim settings.
