Glidecam Industries, Inc. introduces the XR-Pro
Glidecam Industries, Inc. is introducing its lowest priced stabilizer that can handle up to 10 lbs./4.5 kg. ever. The XR-Pro is a critical addition to the Glidecam product family due to its overall value to the customer. The idea behind the XR-Pro is to provide customers with a budget-friendly and versatile stabilizer that can handle a wide range of camera and accessory weights, all while offering the upmost quality.
The XR-Pro combines all of the best aspects of the former XR-Series and adds some new helpful features. The XR-Pro comes with 4 steel camera platform weight plates that enables the use of very light cameras – this is what allows for such a significant camera weight support range. The XR-Pro is enhanced with a new head design, which has a customized bottom plate that allows for more accurate side-to-side movement to ease the set-up process. Notably, the new head design facilitates faster mounting of cameras and quick release plates.
Like all Glidecam stabilizers, the XR-Pro will transform shaky footage into hypnotically smooth, professional footage by isolating your hands undesirable yet inevitable motions. When balanced properly, your camera will seem to effortlessly float. Upon mastering the skill and art of using a Glidecam XR-Pro, you will be free to direct and move with your camera – panning, tilting, booming or running without any camera instability or shake.
