I am impressed. This is a well built and attractive piece of equipment. It is almost worthy of being a decorative item for the mechanically minded. I am positive if used for the purpose for which it was designed, it would be perfect. The device I am using with the SK-GH10 is not easily mounted at its exact center of gravity and weighs approximately nine pounds. This device uses a mount that is made like a clamp with a standard 3/8 and 1/4 inch threaded holes in the bottom as found on a camera and has a large clamping adjustment knob on the side. The SK-GH10 uprights, swing arm, and sliding plate will handle the application with no sign of strain. The 1/4 inch camera locking screw in the quick release plate causes some concern and a 3/8 screw would be better. To get close to a balanced configuration, I must attach the device mount at the end of the quick release plate then extend the plate to its limit. The quick release plate flexes slightly under the load and a short prayer is in order for the 1/4 inch screw. I believe an alternative Acra-Swiss mount may solve my unusual problem. A second quick release plate with a 3/8 inch screw would be a nice addition.
