Hey Everyone, 


I recently got my hands on an old Steadicam ProVid. Its in great condition and I'd love to start using it but all the cameras I'm using are just too light. And I'm mainly flying the F35 and old Red Ones! Whats the best way to add some weight to the rig?

If you're having trouble getting F35s and Red Ones to balance, your problem isn't the weight of the camera. If you really need to add weight though, Batteries are the way to go since both cameras are huge power hogs.
