  1. Hello, I'm having an issue on my Zephyr vest where the socket block is not fully locked in. I think it's causing vibration issues in the footage. Everything is tightened. I'm wondering if anyone else has had this issue or if there is a solution to tighten it down? Danny IMG_2845.MOV
  2. Hello, I'm wondering if there are any advantages to extending the post to make the rig longer or if it is better to keep it as compact as possible? I assume there has to be some physics behind the explanation and maybe it all comes down to personal preference/specific shot scenario. I would love any information on the topic. Danny
  3. Hello - I'm brand new to steadicam operating in Seattle and have been training on the Zephyr. Last night when I was rebalancing I was adjusting drop time and noticed that the dovetail plate was sliding forward even though the quick release lock was locked tight. The weird thing is that it doesn't slide back, only forwards, and would only slide when the rig was horizontal. Has anyone else experienced their plate sliding? Not sure what the issue is exactly and I'm weary to try and over-tighten the quick release screw. Any information is helpful! -Danny
