Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for the X5 Too These are as hard as hen's teeth to come by. The goal is to balance the lens & camera so that the gimbal meets as little resistance as possible to keep the camera stable. My view is that this saves battery life. In any event on my X5 (not X5S) I find the camera and Panasonic 15mm to be back heavy, and that it needs approximately 30 grams of weight to balance the up/down axis. The metal lens shade that comes with the lens is approximately 20g, so the 10g ring in this kit is perfect to get the total 30g that is needed. This kit includes a plastic shade that weighs 9g and I don't use it on the X5. Maybe it is useful on the X5s, but I don't know. The camera is still unbalanced in the rotational axis, but a small 5g weight (I used one with double stick tape that is used to balance tires) does the trick. You have to remove other filters (UV or ND for example) or figure in their weight in the balance. For example, an ND filter that weighs 11g, plus the 10g balance ring, plus the 9g plastic shade would provide the needed 30g total. A picture of the ring, metal shade, plus 5g side weight is attached. The camera is balanced when it stays still when the power is off. Obviously when you put the cover over the shade it is no longer balanced, but that is not an issue since you need to remove the lens cover to take pictures! The lens cover that comes with the metal shade with the lens does not fit right on the plastic shade. If you are using the plastic shade perhaps you will want a separate inexpensive 46mm lens cap. The balance ring is double threaded (it is exactly like a UV filter without the glass), so you can place another filter on top of it, but if you do that you will need to check balance and vignetting. BTW, the product number BR-46-10 tells you it is a Balance Ring, diameter 46mm, weight 10g.
