Actually that rig does work. Philip Bloom on his blog refers to it as "the elcheapo" shoulder rig.

Of the midrange stuff I have found the "Media Rig" to be very good but it harness/rig makes you HIGHLY visible in a crowd. Cinevate makes an interesting shoulder rig that utilizes the Proteus Rails device that is gaining popularity. If you can hold your nose and drop lots of money the Zacuto Newsman package rig works really well with a EX1/EX3 and you can sport a Letus with it and simply adjust the over the shoulder counter balance and you're in business. Any shoulder rig that takes your hand off the camera handle will require a remote zoom on the handle of the shoulder rig so factor that in when you are making your decision.
