I was having issues with camera shake during video recording when using my 70 - 210 FD lens on my Panasonic GH5 lens. Unbalanced. So I designed this to work with my manfrotto tripod. This balanced my Panasonic GH5 camera body and lens. Using this setup with a tripod takes almost all shake out of the shot. Allows me to zoom all the way in and not have visible camera shake on my video clips. Everything knob and dial works after fitted with the collar. I intend to leave it on the lens at all times now.
Tripod mount is Manfrotto 200PL.
I recommend printing at 100 %. No knowledge if it works below that infill density.
Take care when tightening the bolts. I cracked my upper collar on the first print. It needs to be tight but printed plastic can crack. There should be a small gap when tight between upper and lower. This is normal.
