Hey guys,

I just bought a Manfrooto release plate to day so I can go back and forth between the Pilot and my tripod quickly. For some reason I have trouble balancing my HPX when before I can do it in under 5 minutes. Does anyone have experience with mounting a plate on your Pilot plate?

Thanks

If you can, please be more specific. Is your trouble with static balance? Dynamic balance? Fore-aft or side-to-side?

There is nothing about a Manfrotto plate that should make it harder to balance the camera, it's just another mass.

Thanks Mark. I got it figured out now. I skipped testing my drop time in my previous attempts. It was top heavy.

It was static balance.
