I have just purchased a steadicam flyer to use with my Canon XL2. Is there a an adapter for the canon that can be attached so that the camera won't fishtail. Currently, I only have the ability to to attach the one screw. General question: is any one thing or things that one must have with this combination? Thanks in advance.

Hey Frank,

You can get the Canon TA-100 tripod adapter plate (B&H Photo) which will give the camera firm support on your sled. It also helps for quick conversion from Steadicam to handheld, or to sticks (if you have another adapter plate.) I have this setup, and it works very, very nicely.
