On any given day I would much rather perform the long tracking shots on the Glidecam vs the Merlin; for this reason alone.
Hopefully the merlin vest/arm & pilot sled later on will help rectify this issue!
maybe adding a spring on top of the gimbal will slightly solve the problem of vertical bouncing? Haha.
