Can some tell me the difference between the xr-pro and the hd2000? Using a canon 80d 18-135mm .. thanks
The principal difference between the two is the payload capacity. The XR-PRO can carry 10 lbs and the HD2000 can do 2-6 lbs. Your Canon 80D with a 18-135mm lens is well within the capability of the HD2000.

What is the total weigh of this? I am concerned it will be too heavy with a Nikon D800. Thanks!
The Glidecam XR-PRO Handheld Camera Stabilizer is large so it can fly large cameras of up to 10 lbs. Consequently it is large and heavy itself at 8.8lbs. So if you were to mount a Nikon D800 plus a heavy lens like the 24-70 f/2.8 (which together weighs approximately 4lbs/1.8kg) you wind up with a rig that weighs somewhere between 8 to 12 lbs. You may not like that much weight. Be that as it may, the reality is this Glidecam is actually too big for what you want to do. I would suggest the much smaller Glidecam HD2000 Stabilizer System With 577 QR Plate Kit B&H # GLHD2000K (B&H Kit). This stabilizer plus the Nikon 800 and lens would be about 6.5lbs, a much more do-able weight to carry for long takes. Now do understand that these kind of stabilizers rely on you and your operating skills as much as the stabilizer itself to create smooth moves. It does take time to learn how to balance and more time to learn how to effectively fly the rig. (Do not pull this out of it's box on the morning of your first job with it.) I will guarantee you, if you do take the time to acquire the skill, what you get is a very organic, fluid motion that cannot be achieved by other means.

Does this work with very light mirrorless cameras like the Sony a7riii with standard zoom lens?
Yes, this has weights for the top and bottom to counterbalance the different sizes of cameras that may be used. See this video if you are concerned: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=819wmf6-FJY&t=2s

Will this work with a Canon XA30 and a 7” monitor?
Yes, it falls within the payload (weight) limits. There's a mounting hole on the bottom of the Glidecam for a video monitor. I would guess it will be a little more complex to balance with a video monitor at the bottom, but it should work. It takes practice to get everything balanced and to use the steadicam, I'm still learning.

I have a Sony A7C and Sony 20mm f1.8 & 24-105 f4. How difficult is it to rebalance in the field when switching between lenses with a significant weight difference?
Using a stabilizer like the Glidecam XR-PRO Handheld Camera Stabilizer is a skill that is acquired from diligent practice. As you learn, the felicity to adjust balance becomes second nature and is an expected part of the process. In the end you get beautiful, organic moves.

Yes it should. The XR-Pro has a load capacity between 0 to 10 pounds, you are able to use light weight cameras with this stabilizer.
