will a Fig Rig work with the JVC GYHD200CL17

Or is that camera too heavy for the rig?

The answer is both. It works but it's heavy. But you can create good looking and stable shots with a little patience and muscle.

Dude, I tried out a Fig Rig at NAB with just a little camera on it (what's the Sony HDV camera smaller than the Z1/Fx1?), anyway, it is very uncomfortable weight distribution and was quite a workout with a 4 lb camera. A decked out JVC can easily run over 13 lbs. I don't think its practical (check out the latest DV magazine where they review it and agree its not great weight distribution).
