STEADICAM FLYER BALANCE
Posted 23 November 2006 - 04:08 PM
Can anyone tell me if you can achieve dynamic balance with the flyer? Is there enough adjustments on the unit to help achieve DB. Just curious as I was looking at buying one as more often than not I'm shooting with the HVX200 and I'm sick of humping the damn thing into a weight cage just to fly on my Master system.
I've downloaded the manual from tiffen but the instructions look very similiar to the old SK system, which I owned many years ago and I know I couldn't achieve DB with that so thats why I'm asking if this newer model has more functionality/adjustment.
Thanks in advance

You can achieve dynamic balance with the Flyer with cameras ranging from the Z-1 to the DSR-450 (was demonstrastrating that one yesterday). The drill is to angle the battery mount downwards instead of backwards. I have yet to try the HVX but any accessories that you can add for extra weight will be helpful.

I do agree that a little bit of extra weight on the HVX would help get the gimble up to a little better position.
