Hello there,

Just wanted to know of any rigs people have used that are ideal for going handheld with this camera. I am aware of the Left/Right Hand grip setup with an onboard monitor but I am in search of other options.

I am especially concerned about shooting when the lens height is at my waist level and I have to move around a bit.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Operating off a monitor is always an option. I'd either operate off the monitor or cradle the camera in my right arm with my eye on the eyepiece.
