There are several reasons why I choose to use a Glidecam over other stabilizers. For one, the build quality is excellent. I have had two Glidecams, the HD 2000, and the new Devin Graham series. Both of these are sturdy and hold up.
It can be a challenge at first to get stable shots, but once you get the hang of it you are in control not software. I personally like the fact that I can challenge myself to get better each time I grab for the unit. I can’t stress it enough….Practice Practice and more Practice.
I have been working in television/media for over 16 years. My experience includes news photojournalist, editor, and storyteller. It is my belief that you have a chance to better your skills each time you pick up the camera. I strive to be better than I was yesterday.
