    Has anyone had any luck balancing the Tokina Cinema Vista lenses on the Movi Pro? They are heavy but I feel that given some of the setups I've seen here it should be possible. I'm not certain if it is do-able without something like the Ignite Tilt Cage Offsets. Any advice would be appreciated.

    offsets help in case your camera has insufficient room in back for counter weight. . . for that lense at 4.48 lbs, you might want the offsets depending on camera/lens motor config

    We are currently using Redrock Micro SLS Blue motors which integrate nicely with the MoVI. Considering moving to Teradek RT for FIZ, though those motors look heavier than the tiny SLS.

    I have found that offsets help when running 2 (or in very rare cases 3) lens motors with camera/lens setups weighing 6.5+ lbs. You may be able to do with-out, but thats a pretty heavy lens. If i were using for a client on short notice id have the offsets just in case, and they have been clutch on shoots when i did not expect to have access to nice lenses with 3 gears on already-heavy cameras.
