I recently was able to get my hands on a Glidecam Pro 2000 to play around with and to get it working properly for a friend of mine. I believe he lent me a Panasonic AG-DVX100B to play around with, and I imagine a Sony EX1 would be about the same weight, so it should work.

The current model Glidecam has out now that would be comparable to the Pro 2000 would be most likely the Glidecam HD-2000. The 5D could be too light for it, but I would imagine some extra added weight to the top along with the camera, along with properly added weight to the bottom, and you should be alright.

The Glidecam I was test driving had the vest and a Glidecam smooth shooter also. If you're planning on doing long shoots, I would definitely recommend getting a vest and arm. 5 minutes of straight shooting without it will result in a very worn out arm, and shaky shots.

Hope this helps :)
