    Anyone with experience with the Opteka SteadyVid Pro?

    Hello! I have recently bought the Opteka SteadyVid pro and am looking for some tips on balancing it. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!

    stick the handle in a vice (or something else that will securely hold it vertical and allow it to swing freely - like a clamp on a table edge) sit the camera on it and slowly make adjustments until it is correct.

    make sure you mark the adjustment positions so that you can quickly get it close to balanced if your settings should change for any reason - like a lens change.

    I hope that helps.

    there are you tube videos that show how to do this on similar devices like the manfrotto modo steady. this should put you in the right direction.
