Since I’m not familiar with


Since I'm not familiar with this camera stabilizer, I did a little research and found some videos on YouTube. One by Tom Antos covers stabilizers in general and has a couple of models like yours and he shows you how to balance them. It's titled "Learn to use any steadicam – Part 2."  A couple of videos from MrJMMedia entitled "How to Balance the Opteka SteadyVid Pro Stabilizer in Under 20 Min!!!" and "Dynamic Balance with the Opteka SteadyVid Pro" obviously cover the Pro version, which is slightly different, but he gives a more thorough explanation of how to balance it and it may prove helpful in general. You might want to check them out. Hope they solve your problem.
