My 2 Cents

Glide Gear have a history of making high quality equipment that gets the job done (and done well) without cleaning out your bank account.  A perfect example is their DEV 1000 camera slider, which I personally own and love, and for only $149 USD, I’ll be adding the Glidegear DNA 1000 Stabilizer to my collection too!
