XA20: Merlin Settings?

Oops, I suddenly need Steadicam Merlin settings for an XA20 with standard battery for tomorrow.

Anybody have some settings they can share? Tomorrow afternoon I will be flying the cam, one way or another.

I see a couple of XA10 listings on Welcome to Tiffen - Steadicam Merlin Cookbook Settings and Steadicam Merlin2 User Supplied settings - might get you close.

Re: XA20: Merlin Settings?

I use these settings but I do have an AT875R mic attached, it's very light weight though.

Front weight = Finish
Low weight = Starter + 4 mids + finish
Arch size = 14 1/4" (Almost wide open)
Gimbal Guide Ring = 1 click Counter Clockwise
Mnt plate = -1.1

Re: XA20: Merlin Settings?

Thanks Jim & Tim!

With three settings from the cookbooks & Tim I have a good start. Looks like I'll have the lunch break to do the balance, good enough I hope!

Thanks for the quicker start.
