GLIDECAM X-22 SLED
The GLIDECAM X-22™ Sled is designed to hold film and video cameras weighing from 10 to 25 pounds. The X-22 Sled incorporates sophisticated engineering and precision machining, making it both lightweight and strong. The GLIDECAM X-22™ Sled is comprised of four major components. These are the Camera Balance Platform, the Three-Axis Gimbal, the Dynamic Base Platform and the Telescoping Center Post.
CAMERA BALANCE PLATFORM
The precision, Camera Balance Platform (X-Y Head, or Top Stage) incorporates a quick-release, no-tools, drop-in Dovetail Camera Plate that allows you to quickly attach or remove your camera. Ergonomic, fine-tuning, control knobs allow quick and precise adjustment of the Camera Balance Platform’s front-toback and side-to-side movement. These controls allow you to quickly adjust the system’s horizontal balance.
A unique and proprietary, precision, no-tools Three-Axis Gimbal incorporates several adjustable, axis convergence controls. This allows all three axes to intersect for proper operational alignment. By changing the location of the Gimbal on the Central Post, you can quickly adjust the system’s vertical balance. For improved operator control, a very tight knurling has been machined onto the Gimbal Tube.
DYNAMIC BASE PLATFORM
The unique and proprietary, Dynamic Base Platform is designed to manually expand or contract. This allows you to easily adjust the system’s dynamic balance, or to increase or decrease the system’s rotational pan inertia. The X-22’s Dynamic Base Platform can be set up with either one Anton Bauer Battery or one V-Mount style Battery. The GLIDECAM X-22 sled also includes a GLIDECAM L7-Pro, 7 LCD, a custom LCD Battery Plate, and a BNC-to-BNC/RCA video cable.
TELESCOPING CENTER POST
The GLIDECAM X-22 Sled has a lightweight and rigid, no-tools, 1.25" diameter, Telescoping Center Post. This allows you to easily adjust the sled’s length and the position of the LCD Monitor and Battery.
