Alex here and I'm posting here for trouble shooting help.

I recently bought the Merlin and trying to balance my Canon Vixia HF S20 on it and I'm having a really hard time. I tried using the HF S10 balance settings from the cookbook because they are very similiar shape, size and weight but it is still off.

Can anyone give me any insight on this?

Thank you so much!!

I was hoping to use it this weekend but at the rate at which I am trying to get this balanced, looks like I might have to settle for handheld for now until I figure it out.

I really appreciate it!

What is the issue? which part of balancing is going wrong? lower the part with the bottom weight is it's not staying up in proper position. The Lower the weight, the better stability.
