Received mine this week too.   I agree that it is tricky to balance.   I think "FilmPower" may have overestimated on the capability of the device with the A7S and possibly GH4.   I'm still trying to find the right balance for my A7S with Sony 35mm f/2.8 Zeiss lens.  That prime lens is super light so I'm not experiencing the front heavy lens issues you described.  What I'm noticing though, is a constant buzz or jitter which seems to affect the performance.  The instruction video actually goes over that in detail and how to alleviate that problem, but so far I have been unsuccessful at eliminating it.   

Also, what plate did you use on the bottom of the camera?   I need something like that so I can use the HDMI out.  Currently I cannot connect an HDMI cable where I have the camera balanced.

well jitter problem is more like the cam (or the gimbal i should say) is just not 100% super smooth and stable (balanced) so you get so the motors is constantly trying to fight the force so to say ... but on the other hand there also is a lil bit of "unstable" camera "jitter" / lil movement here and there ... its just not smooth enough yet

Thank you Chris!  The very last tip on set monitoring angles to sync clips that just off...saved me on a current project!   So simple and quick.

Good defense of the title. I'm a fan of "Iron Mike" and sure he'll come back even stronger. Definitely agree with your "beast" comment regarding Mike! Great footage!

I use SanDisk Extreme Pro, for critical work, and for every day cards I find that the SanDisk Ultra cards work great on Canon DSLRs.  For even lower cost budget cards(on Canon APS-C DSLRs), I've had personal success with PNY Class 10...but  the ones that surprises me most are the super cheap Class 6 cards with the "Centon" brand name available at Microcenter (locally in Duluth, GA).  It's like the store brand card or something.  My very first experience with recording Canon DSLR video, back in 2011, was on Transcend Class 10 cards and my camera kept shutting down the recordings all of the time.  I called Canon about it, and they actually recommended that I use Class 6 cards instead to record video on.  Just my two pennies.

Another great video Tony!  Could you advise on what type of mount/clamp you were using on the second flash in the second example featuring the Yongnuo products?  That's a great solution that I've never considered!

+Scott Hughes Yeah, I think it's that exact same clamp. It's definitely Monfrotto. Wildly overpriced!

Oh snap. I didn't realize the Google Plus app is optimized for iPad. Last time I opened it was when it was iPhone only. Pretty nice.

You're exact with your observation!  I was in my dimly lit office experimenting with lighting ratios in a multiple flash set up.
