Is there anyone else in these forums using a Glidecam 2000 Pro with a Sony HDR-FX1 sitting on top of it.
I have mine nicely balanced and I'm happy with it. However, discussions on optimising it for use with a Glidecam Smooth Shooter have 'hinted' that it might be heavier than it needs to be. This to me means the balance I've found has too many weights/washers on the bottom of the sled. Basically, the balance I have found uses all supplied weights with the central column only extended a little.
If anyone else has the same 'rig' I'd be interested to hear/see your balanced setup.
It would be convenient for me to find a balance with less weight. Of course I could play and work it out myself (and probably will) but if there's anyone who's already there, it just might save me a bit of time is all.
