Company Profile

Glidecam Industries, Inc. offers the most affordable and versatile line of camera stabilizers and related accessories available in the world today. These hand-held and body-mounted camera stabilizers create super smooth shots, and allow the operator to walk, run, go up and down stairs, shoot from moving vehicles, and travel over uneven terrain without any camera instability or shake. Glidecam products make ideal camera accessories and can easily replace or be used in conjunction with dollies, booms, cranes, and tripods. Both professional filmmakers and amateur movie makers alike can enjoy the fluidity and grace that Glidecam camera stabilizers provide.


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.

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.

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.

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.

Articles Mentioned
Snow in Vienna: Adventures in Destination Filmmaking
Niels Puttemans | At a certain point in your event filmmaking career, usually after watching a fellow filmmaker's online clip, you start dreaming of your own destination shoot. Although we at Ever After have filmed a few destination weddings before, our "dream client" turned out to be a young couple from Singapore. The couple was planning an engagement holiday through Europe and wanted an engagement film to show on their wedding day. It got better from there: We were asked to suggest the best city location in Europe for this December shoot. Although Paris gets more attention, if you're after a romantic European destination in December, there is really just one choice: Vienna, Austria.
Three-Way Street: The Power of Collaborative Wedding Filmmaking
Antonio Domingo, Jose Ortiz, and David Perry | It seemed almost too good to be true: three award-winning filmmakers, one from Spain, one from Utah, and one from Puerto Rico, combining their talents on three Florida weddings. In our industry of one-man (and one-woman) bands, our chances to collaborate and learn from others' talents come far too seldom, but here's what three top filmmakers learned when they worked together this past spring, both in terms of how they approach their work and the power of collaboration itself.
The Nonlinear Editor: Birth Catcher
Stephen Nathans-Kelly | Recently, I had the strange and wonderful privilege of watching a contemporary home birth film that is not explicitly about advocating home birth or dramatizing childbirth, although in its own way, it achieves both. Produced by two Central Florida studios, Kat Small's Cinema Chic Films and the Nielsens Photography & Design, Born at Home is an intimate and inspiring family film.
In the Field: Petrol Cambio
Marc Franklin | The Petrol Cambio is a small to mid-size camera bag that also, quite ingeniously, functions as a tripod. The wheels on the side of the bag are on shafts that pull out from the main structure, by about a foot on either side, and the wheels' fenders roll down to become wheel chucks. A more traditional two-stage tripod leg unlatches and folds out of the back of the bag to become the third leg.
In the Field: Panasonic Lumix GH2
Niels Puttemans | For Ever After Video Productions, the Panasonic Lumix GH2 has redefined the possibilities of DSLR shoots. The solved aliasing and moiré issues, audio monitoring, zebras, no recording limits, improved low-light shooting, 1:1 crop function ... these are all reasons why we bought a second GH2 after one shoot with our first.
