Glidecam has introduced the XR-PRO, a new low-cost, light-weight camera stabilizer created for video and film cameras weighing up to 10lb. The Glidecam XR-PRO camera stabilizing system allows you to travel over rugged terrain without instability or shake in your footage. When balanced correctly, it can provide fluid-looking results similar to much bigger and more expensive rigs. This 3-axis handheld system is ideal for run-and-gun setups, documentaries, news gathering, and creative action videography.
The gimbal-style handle grip and enclosed bearing assembly allow your hand to move freely in several directions and a dynamic upper platform moves in relation to the counterweights. The center post telescopes from 14-25" and the mounting plate has both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads to host a variety of camera types while the base platform can hold an additional accessory (like a monitor) with its 1/4"20 thread.
The device is made with precision aluminum in anodized studio black. It has laser-etched labeling and allows unrestricted booming and 360-degree panning. It is strong yet light weight with payload up to 10lb. It is a complete tool-less equipment that saves your production hours. The Glidecam XR-PRO seems easier to set up.
Professional Looking Footage
XR-Pro transforms hard to watch, shaky camera footage into “hypnotically smooth, professional footage.” With the XR-Pro stabilizer, a camera seems to float and is always balanced and isolated from the operator’s hands. Undesirable motion is eliminated. Camera moves can include panning, tilting, booming or running without any instability or shake. The XR-Pro allows shoots to be smooth and graceful, even while going to extremes like running up and down stairs or traveling over rugged terrain.
