Professional Camera Stabilization System
The Glidecam V-25 is a professional, body-mounted, camera stabilization system designed for film and video cameras weighing from 10 to 25 pounds. The Glidecam V-25 System incorporates advanced engineering and precision machining, making it the most sophisticated and versatile system in its price range. The complete system is comprised of a Support Arm, Vest and Sled.
V-25 Support Vest
The Glidecam V-25 Vest is lightweight and comfortable, and can be adjusted to fit a wide range of operators. High endurance, dual density, EVA foam padding and integral T6 aluminum alloy create a vest that can hold and evenly distribute the weight of the system across the operator's shoulders, back, and hips. For safety, quick release, high impact buckles allow the vest to be removed quickly. The Vest’s outer shell is made of 1000 denier cordura fabric, and 7-panel seat belt strapping, noted as being the best in the industry. The Glidecam V-25 Vest incorporates a unique and proprietary Arm-to-Vest Connector that allows the Support Arm to be attached and removed from the Vest without affecting the operator’s trim settings.
The Glidecam V-25 Support Vest incorporates a unique and proprietary Arm-to-Vest Connector that allows the angle of the Support Arm to be adjusted relative to the Support Vest. This Trimming Mechanism allows you to neutralize the weight of the Support Arm relative to your body’s center of gravity. When set correctly the effort required while shooting is greatly reduced. Another unique and proprietary feature of the Arm-to-Vest Connector is that it allows the Support Arm to be attached and removed from the Vest without affecting the operator’s selected trim settings.
V-25 Support Arm
The Glidecam V-25 Dyna-Elastic™ Support Arm employs Six Titanium Extension Springs within its machined, hardcoat anodized, Exo-Skeletal Shell. Utilizing internal pulleys and high-strand cables, the energy of the Titanium Springs provides the Support Arm with its lifting power. The spring tension is field adjustable and allows for varying camera weights. The Support Arm can carry a total combined camera and sled weight from 25 to 40 pounds. Numerous rigid, internal support structures strategically positioned within the Support Arm greatly reduce the effects of external torsional forces. This feature greatly enhances the arm’s ability to resist twisting even while under a full load.
The Glidecam V-25’s Dual-Action Support Arm incorporates thirty-two precision radial bearings within its T6 aluminum structure. The placement and implementation of these double-shielded bearings produce minimal friction and allow both segments of the Support Arm to pivot and boom smoothly throughout their full range. Integrated Rubber Bumpers placed along the length of the arm reduce noise when the arm is placed in extreme positions. The Arm Post assembly has internal ball bearings that afford the Arm Post a high degree of low-friction rotation. This significantly enhances the arm’s ability to reduce the transmission of undesirable movements caused by the operator to the sled.
A full featured, precision Support Sled designed to carry film and video cameras weighing from 10 to 25 pounds. The Glidecam V-25 Sled incorporates 12-volt integrated wiring.
