    Last Friday, I finally carved out some time to do some testing with the M15. I wanted to balance up something that only the M15 could handle. I've gotten so used to balancing up the Epic with various primes and accessories on the M10, but I wanted to find a setup that would go beyond the M10's limits.

    My friend Domenic just got a Canon CNE 70-200… beautiful lens! We threw it on the Epic Dragon, balanced it up, and took it for a spin down the street. Balancing was easier than expected, and I let the MoVI Controller run the autotune at 85% to see what it came up with. Settings were pretty high, and there was no oscillation the entire time. This thing was rigid!

    Thanks, Jim! Not sure what I can suggest that you haven't heard before (like the duck-walk, or letting your knees never be fully extended to absorb everything). I am just a little obsessive when I have the energy to be, so that helps. Also, since my subject is also walking, his natural up/down could be hiding my own up/down.

    Ciao Austin,
    very impressive, let me a question? was majestic mode or dual operator (only Focus puller)? I can not figure out.
