Adding Weight

I'd like to add a little weight to my HV-20 so it will work more smoothly with a Steadicam Merlin and some larger tripods.

I know some people kill two birds with one stone by using an under the camera mini to XLR adapter, but I already own a mixer, so this really isn't a useful option for me.

Any thoughts on how to add some "dead weight" to the HV-20?

THANKS.

Hi Peter,

How's about using a (or some) large heavy washers between the Cam and the Q-Release - using an extended proper sized bolt ??

I've got some 1/4" thick x 1.5" diameter ones that would do it.

Should find them at a hadware store.

Wide angle lens and largest available battery for starters.

I think the FIRST weight addition for this cam has to be an ND filter. Sorry it's not that heavy but it's the most important. :)
