Hello all, I purchased a used Steadicam Merlin about two months ago. Today, for the first time, I decided to watch the DVD and cook up a recipe for using the Merlin with my Canon XHA1.

I then realized the Merlin was shipped to me with a missing middle weight. It should come with six, and it only came with five. I presume this is because the shooter I bought it from used a DVX and required only five weights.

In any case, I'm now missing a weight and I couldn't find a replacement part on the Merlin accessory sheet so now I'm really worried.

Anybody have any experience with this?

Help is much appreciated...

I would just give the guys at Steadicam a call. I am sure the accessory sheet isn't up to date on a few items. if not you could just take one of the weights to a machine shop and see if they can make something for you.
