      Unsure if this is where to post this but I am looking to pick up a Glidetrack Shooter for my sister’s wedding in August.

      I have a GIOTTO’S MH5001 3-way Pan Head with Quick release and am
      wondering if it will attach well for the Glidetrack. Getting the
      Glidetrack is going to be costly enough on my budget so I don’t want to
      have to purchase yet another camera/tripod head that is pricey.

      You can see more info on the GIOTTOS here:
      1) GIOTTO’S-Professional Photographic Equipment
      2) Click Products
      3) Click (MH 5000~6010) ProFluid 3-way Heads

      Also seen here: http://www.amazon.com/Giottos-MH5001-3-Way-Quick-Release/dp/B000VBMNVM

      Alisatar over at Glidetrack thinks it will be fine but mentions the lower counterweight might not clear the glidetrack carriage. Anybody have any experience with this?

      If this won’t work I am open to suggestions for cheap alternatives (in
      the $50-80 range) to mount the camera onto the Glidetrack.

      Also, if this isn’t where to post this a heads up in the right direction would be much appreciated. :p

      Do youi need a glidecam, if you can use a truck/dolly for your video needs you can find very affordable links on vimio and youtube that can be made around your budget. This is a good tutorial to make your own http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x095qg1RJ_Y&feature=relatedI amde this and it works great.
