The VariZoom Navigator XL Dual-Dynamic Arm and Vest for FlowPod or Glidecam upgrades FlowPod and Glidecam 2000 and 4000 handheld stabilizers into fully supported systems. The Navigator XL consists of a dual-dynamic arm, a vest, a trim adjuster, a Glidecam mounting adapter and a carrying bag. The arm is dual-articulated and spring-loaded and can handle cameras as heavy as 12 lb and as light as 6 lb. (Added weight plates can make up for any cameras weighing less than 6 lb).
The vest is form-fitting and features a torso-gripping buckle system and height-adjustable chest plate. For top results, it must be well adjusted onto the body and its straps thereafter tightened. Once so, the vest can be removed by unclipping the buckles and strap on one side only. It can then be put back on with those same buckles and strap without being adjusted again; it keeps its initially adjusted form. The trim adjuster prevents the arm's drifting away and allows the arm to move on a plane parallel to the ground.
