Has any Red user found a hand-held rig that works well with Red? Easy-rig? other? After way too many years of being Mr. human tripod, my back has gone south and I'm looking for a way to shoot hand-held with the Red that distributes the weight to the hips or at least distributes the weight to both shoulders evenly, and still allows good movement up/down/left/right and walking.

Just bought an easy-rig. It is the only solution I have found as the RED is very difficult to hand hold. The easy-rig takes all of the weight off your shoulder and the camera feels much lighter. Not a cheap solution, but it works well.

I bought an Easy Rig in 2002 and it is just what you're looking for. It gives you smooth movement without body jitter.
