Indicam, varizoom or glidecam?

Ok, here is my delema... I NEED a stabilizer. I am stumped between the glidecam smoothshooter with glidecam2000 or the varizoom navigator with the flowpod. Then I also recently found Indicam system. The indicam system seems more bang for your buck, but i really havn't seen to many reviews on it.... Can anybody that has used either or all three please help me?... Thanks.. Also onething I forgot to mention I own a GL2 just incase that makes a diffrence....


P.S. Great forum...

What's your budget, and what type of shooting will you be dooing with the stabilizer?

Do you plan on using the stabiliser for the whole ceremony - lots of long stop stuff. Or are you thinking just for some shots?

I'm not bad with short wide shots, but man I sway like a tree in a hurricane. Shooting full zoom is unbearable with my shoulder-shot HD100. What do you recommend for me?
