Shoulder mounts for the GL2...

Hello all! Is anyone using any type of shoulder mount with their GL2? Seems to me it would really steady the camera...

I made one out of some metal from True Value. I bent a curve for my shoulder with my hands, attached a camera screw plate, drilled a hole and attached a handle. It has reduced "jiggle" by a great amount. Cost me about $12

After buying the HabbyCam shoulder brace and noticing that
it really doesn't reduce shake that much, the TrueValue sounds like a great deal. I find a monopod works much better for my purposes. Also, you look like dork with a shoulder brace.
