Advice on balancing cheap barebones steadicam?
Posted 11 July 2012 - 10:54 PM
The design is similar to most DIY builds, like the silver flyer and whatnot, but it uses a beefier joint then the traxxis kind, and has a full metal stage and some nice weights. Problem is, it's incredibly hard to balance with my light t3i.
I know that this is common and it can take a very long time to get used to balancing them, but I could use some help. I just want some step by step instructions on balancing, how to start, what's most important (Weight, camera position, gimbal placement etc.)
It seems that whenever I get close to balancing it, the whole unit will spin slowly back and forth.

It's called the Kamerar Video Stabilizer, you can buy it off of ebay, and there is a review on CheesyCam.
Try contacting the manufacture or CheesyCam....
I can guarantee you are the first person on this forum to own one of those

sounds like you need a bit more weights on the bottom end
