This topic has come up before in the past, but I was wondering if anyone could lend any new insight or experiences.
Based on weight alone, even when shooting with a monitor and light, it seems that the total weight of a 5D Mark II would fall within the 2-6 lb range of the Glidecam 2000 HD. However, I have seen numerous videos from guys flying a 5D on a Glidecam 4000 HD without any additional attachments. I'm just wondering if perhaps the 4000 HD works better even though it would be very difficult to reach its minimum weight of 4lbs.
Perhaps the larger weight of 4000 HD allows helps keep it less susceptible to wind during action shots?
Here's a great looking example of the 5D on a 4000 HD: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Ger9exVd2I
