I'm following an 8-piece band to LA next weekend and need to whip up a relatively mobile stabilizing unit for my Canon 60D.

Before I go into specific designs, I need to know what general design is most feasible:

-Monopod
-Stabilizer like this
-Glide Cam a la this sort of thing

I would LOVE to rock a glide cam setup, especially when shooting live concerts. But is this feasible for on-the-go shooting? Moreover, is the glide cam setup okay for non-panning/gliding shots (relatively static)? Is it any less comfortable to shoot with than the other two mobile designs?

Not expecting a "perfect" solution as I realize all designs have their downsides. Given that, which of these is most feasible for this kind of shoot? Thanks in advance

I like the soultions that are a weighted monopod, myself. Best of both a tripod setup and a steadicam as well as being able to boom the camera up high occasionally. The full-length monopod lets you rest your arm on long takes and stil be ready to move and set, move, and set.
