Product Description

Are you ready to fly your camera with the most well balanced, versatile, lightweight, and affordable Vest/Arm stabilization system on the market? The engineers at Glide Gear have done it again, the DNA stabilization system will allow unparalleled dynamic shots while your arms never fatigue. You will be able to take hours of silky smooth video while walking, running, climbing stairs, roller skating, etc... The DNA vest/arm system is also ambidextrous allowing you to mount the arm on either side of the vest so you can use left or right handed guidance. The problem with other Vest and Arm stabilization systems on the market today is that they are either complicated, difficult and uncomfortable, as well as heavy and expensive, or they are just not robust enough for practical long term high level functional use. The DNA arm and vest are precision CNC machined from 6061 anodized aluminum with black powder coating and stainless hardware, so it is designed to last for a lifetime without corrosion or damage. The padded high quality strapping features double stitching with an easy two clip harness system for fast donning and doffing. The DNA is a one-size-fits-all unit with fully adjustable straps and the breastplate is adjustable in length. All you have to do is slide the handle of your Glide Gear DNA series stabilizer into the arm and you are ready to start flying....

I am a film student and needed a rig to reduce shaking. This item does the trick, but takes a lot practice to get it right.

PROS:
- Reduces shaking a lot
- Decent quality

CONS:
- Needs a little support for the back.

They have great customer service, and get back to you on the same day. I would do business with them again, and will definitely recommend them to people I know.

Let's be honest. Not all of us have $1500 to spend on Steadicam's vest (which doesn't even come with stabilizer) and are more prone to checking out cool gear from less know OEMs like Glide Gear. Well, I can honestly say that I was GREATLY impressed with everything that I've bought. Set up was a little tricky, but I finally figured out that the mounting plate (which I use in conjunction with the Manfrotto Rapid Connect Adapter 3433PL 577) slides forward or sideways in order to find the center of gravity (once you have mounted the manfrotto onto the stabilizer) which made everything else come together easily. I mean, this is plug and play. It takes a little getting used to with technique and movement, but that can be learned. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because I think there should be better back support as well as the straps on the front by the shoulders could be angled slightly outward so that the vinyl isn't sliding within the little strap-connecting hole; But that is not something that I will let affect my decision in whether or not I will buy this vest again. I am about functionality and this definitely gets the job done. ESPECIALLY for the money.
Here is a video I have shot with it after only playing with it for a day or so.

I hope this helps!!!

I've had this for about 2 months now and I have to say you won't be disappointed. I'll start with the pros.

Pros:
1. Very solid material. Does not feel cheap or unprofessional.
2. The vest is comfortable and easy to put on and adjust.
3. The steadycam is incredibly smooth once you get your camera perfectly balanced.
4. Gets great moving shots. I can run up and down stairs and the picture is for the most part completely unshaken.
5. The carrying bags that it comes with are awesome especially for paying damn near $700.

Cons:
1. This isn't the manufacture or rigs fault but holy cow did this take forever to balance with my camera! It took me like 4 straight hours to balance my camera on it so I could get a decent shot. And It took a few more days to balence it perfectly!
2. The vest does come in handy for long video shoots but the arm is really bulky and can get in the way a lot. (Especially indoors)
3. The vest didn't really help make the video that much smoother. The steadycam by itself is incredibly smooth and I couldn't wait to put on the vest and see how much smoother the video would be. It didn't really do much. I will only use the vest for long video shoots that are outside.
4. The quick release plate has to be screwed to your camera everytime and the small screws are very easy to lose. I already lost 1 of them.

Overall its the best bundle that I've seen for the price. But unless you have a project that demands you to use the steadycam for hours on end I think you'll be fine without the vest and you'll save yourself a good $300 bucks. Great prouduct though. I would definitely recommend.

This is a sturdy, well-built, well-thought-out product. The price is great for the quality. I have a Glidecam V8, and this system is every bit as nice. I fly a Glidecam HD4000 with my Glidecam system, and the DNA5050 is eerily similar in layout, function, and construction quality. The vest is comfortable and very adjustable. And the arm is very sturdy, and very easily adjustable (my old V8 is a pain to adjust).

The product comes thoughtfully packaged in smart packaging that makes it easy to transport.

All in all, this is an EXCELLENT stabilizer for the money. Yes, it takes practice to learn how to use it properly...but if you're familiar with the operation of systems like this, I think you'll be very pleased at the high quality for the price.
