I will be purchasing a Pilot in June.
Regarding the 10 pound weight limit for the pilot, does that include the total camera and added counterbalance weight to the bottom?
Also, were I to get the Pilot VLB, is there an adapter to use the 12 volt power connector with my 7.2 volt DVX-100B.

Thanks for any help and to Dave Gish for the Getting Started Q & A.

Hi Andy, any extra weight you add to the top or bottom has to be included in the equation.

Hi Andy, not the monitor, but the battery powering the Steadicam yes. So I have been informed by Tiffen.
