Handle for top of FS100?

I 'm trying to find some kind of a handle for picking up and holding the FS100, similar to the Berkey rig. Actaully, I spoke to Brian Berkey and he said he'd see about making something and get back to me. I don't need the whole plate, just a piece that screws into the two 1/4 threaded holes with a handle that can adjust for height.
Any ideas?

Bubba,
Thanks for the link. I called Ryan and they don't have anything yet that's made for the FS100.

Take a look at Caleb's handle, very popular, might work for you.

I just ordered a handle from Caleb, should be here this week and I'll let you know what I think. That said, it was the nicest option of all the ones I found so far...

I went with the solidcamera.com option - mostly because I wanted their EVF mount and it was a no brainer to add the handle in at the same time.

I've got a handle from Caleb (home) and love it, well made, simple and the little rod connectors/clamps are genius.

cheers
Paul

I ordered the plate and handle assy from Berkey systems, and it will be here today.
I really like the evf mount from solid camera, but it's WAY expensive.
