Hi Tery,

I reduced the image file size on www.smootharm.com and remove duplicate images.

Also, it seems like many of your pictures are the same. Did you intend to do that?

FYI, here is the list of my package weight.

Back mount vest weighs 4.02kg
Arm weighs 2kg
Sled weighs 6.28kg
Dead weight 8kg
jvc made sony standard camera mount plate 700g
Camera weight 5kg

I can wear my package 26kg(57.32lbs) for an hour walking around for one take without any issue.

And my weight is 143.3pounds(65 kilograms) and I don't have strong muscle.

Leigh,

Hi there and congratulations on getting your stabilizer finished!

Can you translate kg to pounds for us in the non-metric world? What is the conversion factor?

How light a camera can your rig fly and how heavy a camera can it take?

My systems range is about .5 pounds to 7 pounds (I think that's what an XL1 weighs.

Terry,
the XL1 weighs 2.86Kg








... ok ok, The XL1 weighs 6lb 3oz.


To run conversions just type them into google.
For example search for "2.86Kg in Lb" and see what you get!

Hi Tery,

Thanks

I have updated the front page www.smootharm.com which might answer your question.

FYI the conversion factor is 1 kilogram = 2.2 pounds

Hi Charles,

By your request, I shot my running video for your reference.

Here is the link.

http://www.smootharm.com/index.php?m...osition=42:2:6

Sorry that I am not very strong and with 48.5lbs(22kg) weight that I can't run very fast. But I do my best with my current experience. I hope ten years later, I might shoot better.

Regards
Leigh

Leigh,

When trying to see the doorway shot I get this error message.

"Error
Invalid page id specified! Page does not exist!"

Can you check this out and let me know when it is viewable?

By the way, cool arm!

Thanks,

Tery
