I received my NN4 last week and started testing it today.

Not easy to line up the camera/vertical/90 deg. The plate is far too big for my 7d, at least by 0.75cm. After 5 minutes, the camera started to "slope down". It's the camera, not the upper arm.


I tried to use the camera landscape with just the lower arm, but I couldn't mount the canon 7d+ 17-55 f/2.8 lens. The lower arm was touching the lens.
The whole "contraption" nn4 + rd16 + camera shakes after using the rotator to the next increment.


I must be doing something wrong. Is there some youtube video that shows how to attach the plate, the camera, the upper/lower arms... (I have seen the assembling the NN3 video) If not can somebody do one?

Thanks

Did you see that video that explains how to install the CP-2 included with NN4 on your camera ?

No, I didn't see that video. But that's because nobody told me about:

Why? When they send the confirmation email, why no just add the link. I've been in the dark and struggling...

@ Vincen: the old blue link only shows up on Forum main page on the right top site on my mac. The"chat" disappeared. May be it took too much time. On the other pages you have to use the You Tube symbol near twitter etc. For me the best link is the blue link.
