Dear forum members,

I'm in need of your professional advice!

I've somehow managed to balance the cam with Flycam Nano :D

However, it keeps getting displaced if I move it left-right-forward-backward.

Please check both video & photo and let me know WHAT am I doing wrong? :(

Camera + battery = 330 gramm (11.6 oz)

It is unlikely that anyone who regularly visits this forum has any experience with this stabilizer. The Flycam systems are built and priced for amateurs and no-budget filmmakers.

You might have better luck on such forums as dvxuser.com, cinema5d.com, and dvinfo.net. Good luck!

As Mark mentioned most operator's here use bigger and much more expensive rigs. That being said, your flycam looks bottom heavy. You can easily see that your drop top is too fast. Add more weight to the camera or stage or take weight away from the counterweight/bottom.
