Glidecam 4000

I have the Panasonic DVC60 shoulder mount and was curious if this 6lb camera is a very good fit with the GC4000. I have been looking at a low cost stabilizer like this but would like some input from anyone with some experience using it with a shoulder mount camera.

Consider the shoulder mount design I am thinking thast balance may be a problem.

For a camera that big you are going to need something body mounted.

A GC4K handheld won't cut it.

What's your budget and what are you shooting?

Just for weddings...but wanted to get rid of the tri-pods.

I am not looking to spend a pile of cash, that is why I was checking out the Glidecam 4000.

Oh well...it was a good idea.
