Hi, I have this merlin steadicam, which I'm trying to set up for my 700D canon. I have a EFS 18-55mm lens on the front, and would just like to know the measurements and counter balance weights and all that, to save the time it will take for me to work this all out myself. So if anyone has done anything similiar, any help would be great :)

the best way for you to find an answer would be to go to http://www.merlincookbook.com/ and http://merlin2cookbook.com/

This will give you somewhere to begin. After that, every setup will be a bit different and it will be up to you to figure out what works best for you.
