Hi everyone,

 

I just received the CowboyStudio Magic Carbon Fiber Handheld Stabilizer Kit with Camera Shoulder Load Vest & Single Handle Arm for DSLR DV Camera in the mail, and I'm having one helluva time balancing it.  I have mounted a Canon T5i with an 18-55mm lens and a RODE videogo mic.  I've got the fore and aft balance down, but I can't seem to balance the sway.  Please HELP!!!!

 

I'm also having a hard time using the rig and getting stable video, but I think this is because of the balance issue.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Andy

I've done all of these things and I'm still having issues. My footage actually comes out great if I'm running and filming, but it's still pretty awful when walking.  BTW, Why do I need to change my name from MadSiss Productions?

Hi MadSiss Productions. If you read the rules of the forum, we have a Real Name policy. You need to use your real name as your username. Please contact an admin to change that. 

 

It is hard to figure out what you are doing wrong without us seeing it. Make a video of yourself and maybe we can help.

MadSiss:

 

1) In this forum we use our real name.

2) Do a Steadicam workshop.

 

Best to all "MadSiss"
