Hi everyone,

 

I have a Yelangu S60T steadicam with a Nikon D5200 (18-55mm lens + Rode Videomicro). I have the sled as short as it can go but the drop time is still very quick. Any ideas?

2 possibilities: Not familiar with that particular Steadicam but if you can, move the Gimbal towards the bottom. If not then add a weight plate under the camera to make the top heavier, or add any kind of weight to the top or remove weight from the bottom. All pretty obvious ideas to fix your issue.
