Devin Graham Glidecam Setup

Hello again,

I recently purchased the Devin Graham Glidecam from B&H and would like to share my first impressions as well as get it ready for your DSLR balancing.

First you’re going to screw in the base. Be careful not to cross thread or over tighten the screw.

Gently slide the 4 rubber washers on 4 of the screws. They are all the same size if you’re wondering.

Next add two  counter weights to both sides of the base and lock them down with the bigger plastic washer. Total of 4. If you are in a windy environment you might have to add more weight.

Now gently twist in the thumb screw. If you aren’t able to tighten it down sufficiently you can use a flathead screwdriver but do not over tighten.

Get yourself a pen or pencil and slide your camera back & forth until you find the center of balance.
