Anyone using one of these?

Hi Guys,

Came across this shoulder support on CreativeVideo and was wondering if anyone had used the one I have linked below on a wedding, it looks pretty close to Creative Videos.

If you have used anything like this, what did you think?

Yep, I use one.
The only problem with it is the arm sits on your breast so when you breath the arm and camera moves up and down. Dont breath and you have steady footage, breath and the footage becomes like sea motion moving up and down with every breath.

I posted about this in the shoulder supports forum. Apart from the need to turn blue and suffocate to get steady footage, and the nasty plasticky feeling of the camera mount, the bit that stabs into my chest isn't exactly comfortable.

Just my opinion... your mileage may vary.
