for some info that might help.
Also, post details of what you are experiencing (tilting up or down, side so side, are you mounting accessories on the camera, etc.) And please don't post in ALL CAPS, it is hard to read and looks like you are yelling.

HELLOOOOOO STEADICAM ENTHUSIASTS! PLEASE LEND ME YOUR EXPERTISE IF THE SHOE FITS!
Thats a big lens so the camera is going to have to be mounted a bit back
Its quite heavy so I guess you will need at least three weights below
