First of all, I'd like to say Hi to all of you! :)

I'm new here, but I hope my stay on this forum will last long :rolleyes::)

As you've probably guessed from the Topic title, I'm facing some difficulties trying to balance Sony HDR-CX130 with Easy Cam steadicam (camera + battery = 300 gram / 10.58 oz)

Since I had zero experience using one and don't really know the correct words/terms for the mechanical part, I've decided to make some pictures and a video, that should explain the problem better than me :rolleyes:

I've uploaded it to sendspace free hosting, so if it won't work for you, let me know which file hosting you'd prefer.


And here's what it looks like with the camera attached to it


If anyone has ever had any experience with the same or similar steadicam, PLEASE share your knowledge :)

Thanks in advance! B)
