Glidecam HD2000 , HD4000, or DGSS help!?

I'm thinking of buying a new camera stabilizer. I am leaning towards buying a Glidecam. Which model should I buy? The HD2000, HD4000 or the Devin Graham Signature Series? I own a 70D and would be operating it with a Canon 16-35 f4 lens and Rode Videomicro.

I'd say the Glidecam HD-4000! it's future proof, not much more expensive than the 2000, and is long enough to rest on your hip or leg, for almost-monopod shots. The DGSS is nice, but it's more of a need for larger cameras (i.e. RED, or FS7 sized cameras), and a bit pricier.

Hi Craig, thanks a million! Personally I agree. I do think the DGSS is a bit too pricey so I think I will be going with the HD-4000.
Thanks a million

For the setup you're looking to fly, I'd say get the HD2000. The HD4000 will be a bit overkill.

I love the DGGS. What I love about it is that its made for speed. It's definitely pricey but being able to balance in a moments notice is really nice.

I'd love the DGSS, but unfortunately it is just out of my price range at the moment, however should it drop in price any time soon I will defiantly get myself one! Thanks a million for your feedback!
