Roman,

I suggest you post in the Steadi-newbies forum, and Glidecam has it's own forums. You can also find reviews of Glidecam and other "budget" systems on the DVInfo.net forums.

Glidecam's lower-end products are generally considered very limited in both capacity and performance. Their upper-end products are more refined and better-designed and manufactured but still generally fall short of Tiffen's entry-level systems for performance.

When it comes to stabilizers, there is really no substitute for trying a system out (at a Workshop or under the watchful eye of an experienced operator). You can also benefit greatly from reading the Holway/Hayball book. Though it is oriented to the Tiffen rigs, it covers the principles that apply to all systems.
