Hey all

I just got my Sk2 back from the shop after 2 weeks and I am cruising around my apartment with it and it works fine. thats the good news.

the bad news is that i had almost eliminated seeing my footsteps in my shot when it left, and now for some reason i can't seem to find my position to minimize them.

one question i have had is about where i should be positioning my arm connection on the vest and my body. i feel like sometimes my hip is pushing right on the connector and that is cuasing some of my unwanted motion, so I usually have it just above my hip on the vest and it seems like it feels good there.

is this ok? or maybe i could lower it down even further but then it seems like it is harder to feather my starts and stops.

where is/is there a proper placement for the connector on my vest.

i am new. 1.5 years and taking the SOA workshop in 3 weeks. so i am sure i will get it all figured out there, but i always like to hear opinions here.
