Canon EOS 5D Mark II with Bling

So has anyone started experimenting in their head yet on how to pimp out the 5D Mark II for video use yet?

Any rail, follow focus or matte box ideas?

A shoulder support is an absolute necessity... I don't see any way around that unless you want to go with the vest & arm stabilizer route.

Very, very cool! That's got to be twice the camera cost.

I did some video with the MK11 all handheld and I was surprised at how well it worked and at how steady the footage was. Some long racks were tough to pull off handheld, but the same goes for any setup like that. Compared to an A1 + brevis + rails and grips I was getting comparable footage in terms of steadiness.
