Yes, with the new baseplate I was able to not only get the camera balanced perfectly on the gimbal, I was also able to get the lens centered in the roll axis. In theory, it shouldn't matter, but the reality is that the roll compensation is hard to get perfect and errors get amplified the farther the lens is from the centerline. I added a sliding collar to the non-servo side, as a way to balance, which is how you can have the RX100 over far enough to get the lens in the center.

Attached is a picture of how it balances. The roll belt is off. You can see the collar on the left side. I had to add a bolt as well, but I think the best way would be to just maybe have the yoke tube a little longer on that side, and put the collar on the outside. That would probably eliminate the need for the bolt.
