I’m in LA and wouldn’t be able to one on one with you, but wanted to direct you to You Tube. Probably a valuable source of beginning info to start with, while you’re waiting to figure out a training situation! Why I would even bet, if all else fails you could maybe FaceTime your hero operator and possibly figure everything out!
Congratulations on your Steadicam purchase! Have fun!

Hi Tony - did you consult the manual?
What camera are you trying to mount on it, and is it within the Merlin's range?
Smaller rigs can be finicky, especially if something (anything) on the top stage isn't buttoned down. If you've got a loose camera strap or cables, you're not going to have much luck...
