My Glidecam X-22 review

I have now put up my review of the Glidecam X-22 on my website. This will be updated as I receive my modified arm back from GC.

Great article! Thanks for the detailed review.

What about for a 7 to 8 pound camera (like the EX1 or XHA1), do you think the X-10 is enough, or would you recommend jumping up to the X-22?

Again, thanks for the wonderful review!

I am not familiar enough with the X-10 (or indeed many other makes since I am new to this) to make full comment. Though from what I can tell the X-10 does not come with a sled. You have to buy that separately. With the HD4000 sled you can carry up to 10lbs, so you would be almost at max capacity. You'd also need to get a monitor too from what I can tell.

The x10 is enough for the ex3. I have the ex1r and it is ok with the weight.
And is coming with the vest. You only have to buy the sled. In the case of ex3 you have to buy the hd4000.
