how to take off?

When I am trying to take off my lightning gl-3 or my mic dm-50 from my canon xm-2 it is so very difficult. What can I do? Can I use some oil, or do anything else?

Loosen up those tightening-screw-wheels before sliding them off. :-))

PS: no, don't use oil.

Maybe it's wishful thinking? A slip of the tongue?

A new Vegas? I bet it'll be a lot of money. But why upgrade? It was announced at NAB? (Maybe Canon'll have a few surprises in the next couple of days. I'm still waiting for the black mamba to be announced by Pana US---but a GL3 might be even better news.)

Sorry

Sorry, I meant vl-3.

"Loosen up those tightening-screw-wheels before sliding them off."

Of course I have done that, but it doesn't help, I must use all my power to have them off (vl-3 and dm-50), and once I really hurt myself in that struggle.

It seems that no one else have had this problem?

I also have difficulty removing the DM-50 from my GL-2. It slides off easily from my Optura Pi.

So far I haven't broke anything.......

Yeah I have that problem with my GL-2 Also.

It always helps to torque (that means like a screwdriver) the light just a smidge as you're trying to pull it back out of the shoe. you mainly just need to grab the camera near the connectors and not by the handles provided. This will help you get the leverage you need to pull whatever accessory you have out of the shoe
