Counter Balance
The definitive way to find the most accurate counterbalance between camera/accessories and a tripod
head is to actually mount the camera on the head. However, you can use this counterbalance chart to
get a rough idea of the correct counterbalance.
The vertical axis of the chart depicts the height of the gravitational center and the horizontal axis is load
weight (total weight of the camera and accessories). Based on the combination of these two elements,
you can find a suitable tripod head for your camera.
When a standard lens, microphone and battery are used, the normal height of the gravitational center
is approximately 125mm / 4.9"(for a shoulder type camera), 100mm / 3.9" (semi-shoulder) and
75mm / 3.0" (hand-held). The height of the gravitational center will not shift much even when a different
lens or a different battery is used on the back of the camera. Please be aware that attaching a light or a
monitor on top of the camera will shift the center of gravity.
