    Have you tried what I call the cradling method? I often shoot that way in order to draw less attention to the fact that I am shooting. I'd have to take a photo to properly communicate the method, but essentially I hold the camera under my right armpit with my right arm draped over the camera, right hand on a right-side grip. I tilt the VF upwards and my head tilts downward to have my eye on the VF. My left hand operates the focus and the iris and zoom. The camera lens ends up being at breast-height. It works well for stealthy shooting because if I choose I can just raise my head up from the VF while still rolling and it is less obvious that I am rolling than if the camera were on my shoulder. For your need it would put the camera about a foot lower than operating from your shoulder.

    Glad to hear it!

    Jesse Feldman, who created the ErgoRig is a friend and a great operator. He has designed a great piece of kit here and if you spend any significant time doing handheld, you need this. In my twenty eight years of operating, I’ve done a lot of handheld and at one time or another I have owned or tried everything out there to try and help make handheld better and have less fatigue. The ErgoRig does both. It is built tough and has great attention to detail without over complicating things. You can’t go wrong and getting a discount is even better.
    My two cents.

    Yea...not a massive discount, although, you'll never find it this cheap again for quite some time, if at all.

    Hey guys, just wanted to make you aware that Ergorig also has a 14-day return policy. So if you get it, and don't like it for whatever reason, you can return it, provided that it still looks brand new. You'd be liable for return shipping, but they offer that guarantee for those on the fence.
