I'm using a Merlin with a 1lb camera and have managed to get it balanced but it's never 100% rock-solid.
I am using it to try and set up a 'walkthrough property' service for estate agents.
My problems are:
1. As soon as I start the 'walk', the camera rocks slightly back and forward, which isn't fixable in Final Cut.
2.As soon as I stop andy move, the camera rocks back and forward.
I find steadying it with my other hand impossible, so I'm trying to shoot one-handed, which works up to a point, but is very difficult when negotiating corners.
I've been practising for about a month now on and off and I don't use a vest.
I'm getting a bit frustrated now, to say the least.
Any tips to stop the unwanted side-to-side and back and forth movement?
Many thanks in advance. Kim
