Steadicam Pros,
I just recieved my New Steadicam Flyer LE (I really love the new heavier duty stand) and I am balancing my cam on it. I own a JVC GY HD-250 with a .8 wide angle adapter. On the front shoe (between viewfinder & nat mic) I have a double shoe adapter with 2 sennheiser rec. units. On the back I have left my AB battery to help with weight leveling. The question I have, is the manual states I should have center of gravity over like a rear hole on my steadicam plate. I have done this but that places the plate with only about 1/3 of it on the bottom of my JVC quick attach plate using the last hole to attach. Is this correct?
Thanks for the advice, I'm going to practice now
