Lucinda, can you keep us posted on how the new battery pack works for the ballance after you try it? Would like to know if that's a resolve. Curious as to what battery pack you're referring to and the cost of it?

For you Mark...

*does XL2 Impression*

Woo!~ I gave that one my all. I think I accidentally converted my CCD's to Native 16:9 for real on that one... Ouch.

You do lose some flexibility, but it has a quick release mechanism for those moments you need to go handheld. A great investment at $120 after rushed shipping from ebay. Kevin
Kevin, based on your recommendation, the presentation at DV Creator (Steady Stick 1/2 way down page) , quite a bit of time shooting shoulder mount with XL1 & XL1s, and a small amount of time shooting shoulder mount with the XL2, I ordered the Steady Stick. So Kevin, its all your fault! ;)
