Glidecam in The Netherlands?

I'm looking for a glidecam in the Netherlands, but I have some difficulty in findings shops that sell it. Does anyone know if glidecam equipment is available at all in the Netherlands?

Thanks! They e-mailed me back and yes, they offer a glidecam 2000 pro, and it costs 750. So I'll have to save up for it :)

Which glidecam? An affordable one :) I've seen equipment up to 66,000 dollars on some websites and that is a bit outside my budget. My camcorder is a Canon XM-2.

So you are looking for a V-8 then I assume? I myself have a
XL1s so that would mean a V-16 :( I was wondering which
of those devices they were offering for 750 euro's (excluding
tax I'm sure)

a 2000pro will handle a GL2 (XM-2) just fine, but wont give you any upgrade options...meaning don't try to put anything heavier on there.

and rob, a V-8 is more than adequate for an XL1s. I used to fly an XL1 plus a bunch of added accesories with great results. I used to toss a GL1 on a V-8 as well and found it to be a little to small and lightweight for that rig (even if adding a bunch of weight to the top to compensate)
