Details regarding arm:

The Glidecam X-45™ sled holds any video or 12 volt film camera weighing up to 45 pounds.
The X-45 Sled incorporates sophisticated engineering and precision machining to make it lightweight and strong.
Three dedicated video BNC connections are located on the base and head assembly.
The Glidecam X-45 central post power/ video cable can handle composite video, component video and HD-SDI video. Two 2-pin Lemo connectors are also located on the base and head assembly. The two on the base are for accessories. The head has one for camera power and the other for camera accessories.
The precision, x-y adjustable Head assembly incorporates a drop in style dovetail camera plate for quick front to back balance. Very, fine tuning, ergonomic knobs control front to back and side to side balance adjustments.
The Sled’s “no-tools” precision Gimbal is made to top of the line quality.
The Gimbal incorporates 4 bearings inside the handle to yoke connection (the tilt axis). There are 2 bearings on each side of the yoke, providing 4 bearings for the roll axis.
A very tight knurling has been machined onto the Gimbal Tube to improve handling. An easy to replace soft foam covers the handle grip.
The Glidecam X-45 Sled has a strong and rigid 1.75” central post, and a “no-tools” Telescoping Post. This allows you to easily adjust the sled length and position of the LCD and batteries.
The Glidecam X-45 base platform can be set up with two-three Anton Bauer or V-Mount style batteries.
