Fix for Sony 70-350 lens droop on tripod

The 70-350 lens has enough magnification that the slight droop when you let go of the camera is objectionable. I found some videos that say that the droop is caused by the torque on the tripod because the lens is not balanced.

Simple fix for droop

I use a quick release arm assembly to offset the camera for panoramas. It turns out that same assembly solves the droop issue.  The picture shows the details.

This is not novel, but, it solves my problem.
