Im looking into getting a HD4000 glidecam with the smooth shooter kit. Has anyone used this with a JVC GY HM 700u? If so how did it work for you or can it even handle the camera?
Total weight of my camera with battery is 9.4lbs

You know, Im going to post in here as well because I am going to need this answer as well.
I will be buying an HD4000 shortly here and it will eventually get paired with an HM700u if it is possible.
Looking to hear from someone with experience.

I think you would be pushing the limits of both the glidecam and your body using the 4000 with the HM7XX series camera.
Even a Steadicam Pilot would be cutting it close. I think you'd be better off with something that has a bit more "punch" to it be it a preowned Steadicam Flyer or the Varizoom or Glidecam equivalent.

here is a link from a conversation I had with Thomas at glidecam Help Choosing Glidecam - Glidecam Forum (http://www.glidecamforum.com/conf/index.php?showtopic=869)
