shoulder support for GL2(XM2)

Hi,
Can anyone advise me on a shoulder/chest/whatever support for XM2 (GL2)?
I'm looking for a light, comfortable, easy to set and not too expensive tool to steady hand-held shooting. It would also be nice to have smooth pan and tilt movement in case I want to fix the frame. I'm a newbye with this kind stuff and somehow scared of the diversity of these accessories on the net.

If you've seen this before - apologies! But as you have asked for an answer to a specific product, I'm presuming you may need some "first-call" ideas.

Grazie

Thanks a lot. Someone in another forum pointed me to http://www.camsling.co.uk/
Does anyone have personal experience with this tools?
I have to choose something that would really free my hands and fix the camcorder firmly enough for steady shooting. On the other hand I afraid to stick with something bulky, that I won't be able to take with me wherever I want, or something hard to operate.
