Default Shoulder mounts (like a rifle stock for a camera)

In the past I used a shoulder mount, but the one I had was really cheap, and I ended up tossing it. When it wasn't letting loose of the camera, or the adjustment arm loosing lock, it helped with making a steady shot.

I was wondering if anyone here is familiar with the Bushhawk brand, or any other brand. Are they cheaply made? Any comments would be appreciated.
Thanks

After reading this thread, I wonder if a rifle stock mount would be a wise idea.

And certainly don't take it to an airport. That would be funny.

Take it to the airport with just a spotting scope on it, no camera body.

I really am having second thoughts, last week I was challenged twice while walking around with my 100-400 IS L (without a gunstock). Both people were very kind after they found out it was a camera.

Have you tried taking a monopod with a ball head, not extending the monopod but cocking it back clamped under your arm with the camera at a good shooting angle? Use the neck strap as a sling, either around your neck or around the other arm adjusted to counterbalance the monopod. I get a very steady hold with this technique.

I wouldn't walk around airports like that though. Probably get you shot, or at least get old ladies screaming terrorist...

Cool idea John, I'll have to play around with it.
Thanks,

Thumbs up Re: Shoulder mounts (like a rifle stock for a camera)

Yes I have tried the Bush Hawk, and it does work. However I have also found the Stedistock @ Adorama for about half the price, it is lighter and will do the same job and you can shoulder the thing with the carry strap around your neck.
