Steadicam, glidecam, habbycam, etc.

Has anyone used any of these for stabilization? I have read that people don't like the glidecam, don't like the steadicam, but i haven't heard anything about habbycam. Can someone please write a little about the different image stabilization systems? What do you use, what would'nt you use? Most of my shooting will be outdoors, some will be inside large spaces. It seems to me as if the glidecam would work pretty well. Thanks.

stabilizers

the stabilizers you asked about are all built on the same basic level.
i believe to use the camera stabilizer best you need a small external monitor
for less important functions such as frame composition and not focusing
ive had good luck with my glidecam
