Balancing and leveling the Steadicam "Merlin" can be a very time consuming task.
If you balance it bottom heavy, you just need a few seconds to level the thingy,
but you´ll also get fed up with the permanently tumbling.
Balancing it as perfect as possible needs a lot of patience and therefore
either strong arms or some little helpers.
I had a great idea to connect my merlin to a Seagull shouldermount,
which is super easy and effective as hell:)
Hope you like my tiny tutorial and maybe it´s also helpful for you :)
