Can you recommend a shoulder mount?

Hope I'm posting in the proper forum...

I have an FS100 and a Canon 5D MkII. I'm looking to buy a shoulder mount to use for either camera with the following provisions: I want a rig that uses some sort of support mechanism for the front of the rig (to keep the arms from straining), i.e. a rod that seats into a belt worn around the waist or a rod that rests against the chest and I want the ability to mount the entire rig onto my tripod. Most of my work involves sit down interviews then b-roll and I don't want to take the time to unscrew the tripod plate off the camera, then screw the rig plate back on, then vice-versa. I'd be rigging the camera, a Marshall 7" monitor, a VidPro on-camera light, and my heaviest lens is a Canon EF 28-135 (I listed to give idea of weight I'm rigging). Any suggestions?

How's this? Used by Garrett Edwards on Monsters all over. http://www.amazon.com/CowboyStudio-Shoulder-Support-Camcorder-Camera/dp/B00...

Not confident that could support the camera, monitor and light...

He used it with a Sony ex3 plus light kit.

First, what is your budget? I would always recommend building a custom rig if you can, but that is more expensive. Is it a rig JUST for the setup you described or do you want to use it as a base to grow with and expand?

Also, I might suggest not locking yourself in completely to the idea of a body mount. Balance is more important than anything else and if you went with a rails-based solution, a properly counterbalanced rig won't necessitate a front body mount.
