PAG C6 Battery - How do you carry \ mount yours?

I own a DVC30 with a PAG C6. Currently I carry the PAG battery over the shoulder with the provided strap. However, I would like to know if anyone has managed to attach theirs to the camera in some way? I find the strap constricting and a pain if I need to put the camera down for a time.

for such a small camera, I would recommend something like this:

Not only can you mount the battery behind your shoulder, couterblancing the camera nicely, but the DVRig Pro will help you maintain steadier handheld shots and allow you to mount other accessories, like a wireless mike.

Here's another review:

Hi Dan

I agree the large battery is somewhat of a pain to lug around, but gives you really good autonomy.
I run mine on an FX1 but can't imagine other than a shoulder mount as Scott suggests how you could fix it the camera... the weight alone would make this a real hassle.

I just pop mine in a Domke belt & pouch and use it around my waist... If I need to put the camera down I just unplug..

regards
Gareth

I use the belt clip that PAG make for the battery ... much tidier than the shoulder strap. Does that help?
