Shoulder mount for VX2100

Anybody have any experience with the below mount. This seems to be the simplest shoulder bracket for my VX2100.

Hi,
I bought that (video innovator) shoulder mount over ten years ago and I still use it today. It is simple yet effective. I have used it on many wedding shots, I have used cameras ranging from a Sony D8 to an GL2 to a Sony PD170. This mount has worked great for all. Many times I attach my tripod plate on the bottom of this mount to quick attach to my tripod when I am not going handheld. It is simple great mount. I have since bough an Glidecam system, but I still use the VI due to its simplicity. I hope this helps.

This looks like it could be an effective, but simple way to steady the camera and make shooting a lot more comfortable. The basic brace resembles part of a rig I designed for my own use and I rarely use my camcorders without it.

Simple Home Produced Shoulder brace

I made this shoulder brace from 1/2 Aluminum Tubing, a couple of bolts, and a piece of 1 inch and a 1/4 dowling, and a couple of pieces of 2x4. Added a rubberized grip from a bike shop, and I ended up with a decent shoulder brace for VX2000 (originally), and it has converted over without change to my FX1.
