Hello. I have a Canon HF S10, similar to the S20, and am using a stock battery and no add-ons to balance on the merlin. I have gotten it balanced but it has a small bit of "wobble/shake." I cannot get the drop time to reduce to a full second. I am not sure what to do. I used the cookbook's settings for this camera and this is as far as I can get. Can anyone advise me on what I am doing wrong or how I can fix the wobble and increase the drop time?

To increase drop time close the arc a bit and/or use a bigger battery. Try get it to two seconds.
