how to make HD2000 calibrated or balanced correctly

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

   First time to use HD2000.  I tried to balance it, however, it appears calibration issue because if I balanced it on 0 degree then the rest like 90, 270,360 is not balanced properly.(drop time test is 2.5s around) So I followed below video to calibrate it and seems it works(although I am not sure if it's 100% calibrated because I can only rely on bubble level shows good). Now I can attach camera with all 360 degrees balanced with bubble level . However, I got one more issue that if I try to hold the HD2000 attached camera move horizontally back and forth, left and right. (Or use my body  do 360 degrees rotation.)  The camera will have slightly spinning, the shooting spot of the camera will spin the angle originally pointed to --- not stay in one spot . My test followed  This Video . The result of my HD2000 is even worse than Flycam. Both horizontal test & 360 degree test make my camera spin without stay in one spot.

Does it mean my calibration failed? Or I have other issue with my HD2000 need to be fixed?

BTW, my camera is Sony NEX 6. And the camera too light (with lens around 2lb) I have to remove all bottom weights with blank base. I also tried my 5D mark iii with 1 weight on the base for each side. Same result.
