Shoulder brace like this one?

http://news.sel.sony.com/digitalimag.../46/165946.jpg

I'm looking for something simple, lightweight, portable and compact very similiar to this one for my JVC GR-HD1.

Anyone know of anything less than $300? This one doesn't seem to be compatible with a standard tripod mount (or maybe it is but it doesn't seem like it from the pics).

Thanks in advance.

Troy

For that price, check out the Image 2000 shoulder support with single hand grip over at B&H Photo, one of DVInfo's sponsers. Enter the following in the B&H Photo search field:

There is also a dual handgrip one for $100 more. May want to verify if this product will work with your camera though, including with the LCD flipped out.
