Arri S-3 + SR3. Need for counterweight?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


i recently purchased the S-3 shoulder mount for my SR3 and had a question about the need or lackthereof for counterweights, since I could not find any manuals or information online. 

While I assume that on one end this shoulder mount has been designed for a balanced use, it does not take into consideration any additions on the camera unit itself. Is it normal to add counterweights to the rods with this setup? If so, any suggestions as to the amount of counterweight to try, as well as specific weights or places to purchase?


Thank you for reading.
