Adam, I'm going to guess that the weight in the "cookbook" is the weight of the body+battery, but not the lens. Canon specs the 600D as 515g, body only (no battery). You'd need to add the weight of whichever lens you're using to the body weight. Another thing to take note of is that the table you're looking at is the [i]user-supplied[/i] data table, not the Steadicam "official" table. You might try using the T2i settings in that table for a starter; the first table entry is for the T2i with 18-55, and the T2i body's maybe 50 g less than the T3i, so you'll be fairly close as far as weight and CG.
