    Actually, I was referring to Bruce "The Pom" Newton of Alice Springs. Maybe you know him. Alice is close by to you isn't it? <evil grin>

    Thanks, Andy. Makes sense. If there was another way of having the movi contoller, etc was balanced right, that vertical adjistment would nit be needed, though, correct?
    The fact remains, getting back to the subjet of the thread, that the joint between the Horizontal and vertical pan booms feels like it's just not up to the job weight of having 12-14 pounds swung around on it, and being constantly adjusted. Agreed? It gets a workout every time there's an angle change on the roll axis.
    The side handles have a similar workload when tilting, but there is two of them to share the load.

    Not entirely true, Mark. There's always going to be the need to move the CoG of the gimbal+camera right under the pan axis of rotation. You can have tilt and roll balanced perfectly, but you'd still need to be able to move the CoG of the entire shebang forwards/backwards and left to right.

    I believe the max payload for the M10 is ten pounds (I may be wrong, but I thought that was how it got its name), so sure, if you put 12-14 pounds on it, that knuckle's going to be really stressed as you say.

    And you're correct about load sharing on the handles.

    Max payload is 12lbs. It did get an increase prior to release.

    Yes, ok... so, we need a better/bigger clamp.

    That joint doesn't just take the payload (which is said by freefly to be 12 pounds now) - it takes most of the movi rig as well.
