Racking focus problem, with bigger lens

Hey guys,

I've been playing around with my new gini-rig.

However I've been noticing a problem whenever I'am racking focus. Especially when I'am using a longer/heavier lens.

Since the lens weights more then the camera, there is a cantilever effect. The camera tilts up and down whenever I turn my focus wheel.

Iam not sure if you guys have experience such a problem. Would really like to know how you guys will go about solving this issue.

So far what I can come up with, its either adding more weight on my GH2 or finding some kind of lens support(so the lens mounts directly to the rig, instead to the camera.)
