XH-A1 Shoulder Mount?

Okay, so for those of us who own this great little camera, it's not so little! Canon is genius in their development in this camera, all except one thing... failure to keep it in the body design of the XLH1. In other words, it's an ergonomic disaster !!!

I've also purchased the wide-angle lens adapter, which obviously adds more stress to the already heavy strain on my wrist. I try supporting the camera with the left hand, but it's kind of awkward and adds to the shake of handheld video.

Sure - tripod and no problems, right? But how many of us tripod ALL the time? I'm talking about times when you have no other choice but to shoulder, rather, hand hold the camera.

So, to my question... has anyone come across a shoulder mount that has been designed to work with the XH-A1 or has anyone done any homemade design?

It's a shame this camera has so much to offer, yet is an ergonomical nightmare! I hope someone can help me on this one!

Thanks in advance,
