Re: mechanical stablizer that allows gimbal calibration?

I have two motorised gimbals, one for light-weight cameras and another for heavier ones. Once balanced and if I use the same camera/lens combination, they don't need recalibration no matter how many times the camera is taken on and off.

I also have a cheap Glidecam knock-off and it was only usable with a very light point and shoot camera. While the Glidecam style stabilisers have their uses, they are an absolute mongrel to balance and generally use, compared to motorised ones.

I think it this day and age, only the real die-hard, old-timers, want to use a Glidecam. This is completely different to those who use Steadicams in the movie industry.
