Shoulder Support

What would be the best shoulder support for the GL2? Any tips where to buy it in Holland?

Thnx

This thread from the FX1 forum might be of interest: http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthread.php?t=40217

Also see the following, which is the same support discussed above but used with a GL2:

Dv Rig Pro here too.

It is NOT a shoulder mount, but uses the shoulder to support the rig which has an articulated joint allowing the camera to be adjusted to many more positions than just a "fixed" shoulder mount. The DV Rig Pro allows for "other" bits of kit to be bolted on. I have a 5" monitor bolted on one of the support handles.

I've videoed all day on a busy BUSY community event and I was so relaxed I could have done the evening too - if required.

Think beyond "just" a shoulder mount and there is this solution.

Here is a quick search I just did.

I don't know IF they still stock it - up to you, but I bet PECs of London will point you in the right direction.

Grazie
