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. :cry:

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.

5D and holy trinity of primes. Now the 90mm TS-E TS-E fly bit me. I hate these forums.

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...

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.
