Shoulder Mount - XF100

I know this is kind of a silly idea, with the XF100 being so small, but there are times when I really need ability to move around quickly but still get relatively stable footage (at least some that I can stabilize in AE or Motion).

Normally I'd be tripod mounted for ultimate stability, going with a steadycam is not an option (several reasons) so shoulder mount is about all that's left (hand held is too unsteady).

So, suggestions for models to look at?

Re: Shoulder Mount - XF100

You might check with Olaf Eckberg, Westside AV, a sponsor here and a frequent contributor. I don't know for sure if his mounts fit the 100 but it would seem logical and if not perhaps he could do a bit of mod to it.
While I haven't used the rig it appears to be a great build quality and fairly priced.
Just a thought.
