We had a few really good discussions on the various camera supports, steady stick included. There was one other support similar to the steady stick that looked a tad more promising.

I opted for the Marzpak. I'll dig and see if I can find the link.

Hi Bryan,
I went through pages here but couldn't find anything.
This is for weddings and GS 100 Panasonic camera so I need something small.

I've built shoulder support myself but it's still "too big" for this kind of events.

I found it . I had posted a blurb about it on DV.com. Look at the lighter version. It does look like it would help and be a tad more controleable than the steadyu stick. Construiction is supposed to be pretty good.

My money is still on the Marzpak. Did I mention the fanny pack holds 8 cold ones and the side loops would handle two of the 1.14 litre cans of any fine Canadian beer.

So no users on this for a while.

Any new updates?
