Re: Left Weighted S1?

It's just physics. The S1 is heavier and wider, and therefore will create a greater moment (rotational or twisting force that your hand must resist) when it is held from the side.

Btw, a moment is defined by the force (weight) multiplied by a distance. Using the numbers you list above - and assuming that the center of gravity is on the lens axis (not necessarily true) gives the S1 a moment that is roughly 57% greater than the G9 - which you would absolutely feel - even though the S1 is only 36% heavier.

Not much can be done about that other than making the S1 grip as ergonomic as possible so that you don't notice the greater moment as much as you might otherwise.
