Hey guys, just joined here, i was wondering what sort of reccomendations you guys had in terms of Glidecams for a 7D, ill be using a 50mm and the kit lens with the camera. Im a college student so i dont have a lot of money but i wouldnt want to buy something too cheap either that would result in crappy footage...suggestions? thanks !

I've heard the best is steadicam merlin ($800) and second best is the glidecam 2000 (pro/hd) ($300 and $450).

I've read that the glidecam is more fatiguing than the merlin.
