Just purchased a Steadimate with vest and A-30 Arm. I recently hooked it up to my Movi M15. I am having some trouble getting smooth shots with it. I am getting a weird side to side movement with the rig. I'm not sure if it has something to do with the way I walk or if I have the rig set up wrong. Anybody have experience with this rig set up yet ??

I'm posting the reason on a new thread, and hoping for a solution.

I was having (and still am a bit) that issue. There is not a lot out there on training for the Steadimate. But I am finding that the more I just practice and make adjustments to my vest and Ronin, it's getting better. For me, the higher the socket block is, the less hip sway I'm getting on the arms.. I think it's the hip motion that translates to the Ronin and since the gimbal much farther away from the camera (unlike the Steadicam sled). I've operated Steadicam for over 20 years and this is definitely different...
I would love some other opinions if anyone out there is using the Steadimate.
