Can anyone recommend a good shoulder pad for moving a tripod with camera mounted?  I have a shoulder pad for hand held work, but it requires getting it strapped on.  I'm looking for something that hangs from or is secured to the tripod for quick moves.  The tripod legs I'm using are the Sachtler ENG-2.

I use a Letus MCS shoulder pad with my Sachtler sticks: http://www.letus35.c...s-shoulder-pad/

It already has hard-side Velcro sewn into it, so I just put a small square of soft-side on the back of the tripod head and slap the pad on for a camera move, which works great. If you want, you can attach a loop of sash cord to it and hang it off the tripod hook as well.

Thanks for the info, Satsuki.  Also just finished the Art Adams article about head room that you posted.  Great read.

I'd have thought some high density foam and gaffer tape would do the job.
