Hi,
I'm new to operating and am trying to set up a Glidecam v-20 with a Panisonic Varicam. I was wondering if anyone had 1. Tips for me on how to set it up right i.e. how much weight, configuration of the sled etc. and 2. Any pictures of your rig. (would really like to see another Varicam set up.)
If anyone has some tips and pics for me I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks,
Paul

Your best bet would be to try the Steadicenter for pics on this setup.

Thanks for the site. I still would really like to see an identical set up.

Finding that exact same setup is uncommon and will be difficult to find. It shouldn't matter, though. If you gain an understanding of how the various components work, you don't need to see a setup, you just need to know HOW to set it up.

If you're in LA, contact Alan Gordon Enterprises (http://alangordon.com/). Otherwise, contact Glidecam directly. They're very good about answering their phone. You can also try to find an experienced Steadicam operator who will go over your components with you.
