I purchased a Glidecam HD-1000 this week as an early Christmas gift to myself. It allows your dSLR to "float" on a gimbel and thereby remove camera shake when shooting video. I had read all of these folks saying it was hard to balance - I did not find that so. Instead, I can see it requires practice to learn how to fly with it, keeping a light touch while steering it in the direction you want. So, practice, practice, practice . . .
