Glider Pro 3 - 4th Axis Stabilizer for Single Handle Motorized Gimbals

In this episode, we review the Glider Pro 3, a 4th axis stabilizer for single handle motorized gimbals. Why would you ever want something like this? When shooting walking shots, have you ever noticed that there’s some bouncing in the footage with your footsteps? This helps reduce that. Let’s take a look!

If you’d like to learn how to make great dialogue audio for your film and video projects, please have a look at my courses including processing dialogue audio, recording sound, how to use the Zoom F8 and F8n, and how to get the most from the Sound Devices MixPre series of recorders.

Panasonic GH5S - Used this camera on all of the gimbal shots

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K - I used this to record everything but the gimbal shots in this episode

Panasonic 12-35mm F/2.8 OIS Lens - Used on the Pocket 4K camera and the GH5S. On the gimbal shots, we turned the image stabilization on the lens off so that you could see how the gimbal and Glider Pro 3 work without the help of camera or lens stabilization.
