Took the XCAM and GH2 out for a run today. First time. Camera has top weights on it provided, very kindly, by the ebay seller. Took about an hour to balance. Unit is nice for grabbing quick steadicam shots once properly balanced. Wouldn't want to use it all day as is the same for other steadicams of this kind.
For the price and what it does, it's a good unit and I recommend it.
I am by no means a professional steadicam (or XCAM, I guess) operator. So, please take any bumps and odd movements with a grain of salt. I'm sure with practice, I'll be able to fly the XCAM with much more precision.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
