i own a v25 glidecam and at the the moment use it every day.
have used hdv, hd, beta and DB on it and it works a treat.
i know its not industry standard and i would love to own xcs pro mkv tiffen etc but the cornish budgets cant afford it...

what is the next step?...

many thanks

The next step, if you want to be taken seriously, is to present yourself seriously. Use a spell-checker. ;)

Yes, you can. It's not the brand that makes one a Steadicam operator, it's the experience and skill with the equipment, whether it be Steadicam, PRO, XCS, Glidecam, whatever.

As a newbie, however, you have to be up front with your level of skill.

Good luck.
