The effects of the centrifugal force applied to the post will be different the higher or lower its applied. Hence a non coplanar monitor will balance great on the mickey and not be in dynamic balance.

 

This is what Jerry is saying and it seems entirely correct to me. Eric, if you dispute this howabout doing so with some science.

 

 

Go back and rear the thread title.... DB/Side to side..... yes the mickey will help what I said is entirely correct

I thought this thread was about getting in Dynamic Balance. Excuse my ignorance but isn't side to side balance just a component of Dynamic Balance? As is fore/aft? And drop time(minor adjustments can help achieve DB because it can easier with a little less drop time no?) I, having a telescoping post am probably not always perfectly in line with my post's relationship to monitor/batts and even being not absolutely perfect I can find static balance using my stage side/side and fore/aft adjustments. Once I am in static(with the camera's fore/aft cg in the suggested position on the stage,) the monitor is where I want it, and the drop time is acceptable, don't I just proceed to move two masses(camera and batts) until the sled is rotating flat on the docking pin? Can there be more than one way to skin a cat?
