Does anyone know the best handgrip or shoulder rig for hand held work with an ARRI IIC & Cinematography electronics motor?

It'll take standard Arri Bridgeplates apparently, so I'd just pair it with one of those and a dovetail-based shoulder mount kit like this:

There are plenty of options out there for this style of shoulder rig, and they'll all provide the same basic functionality. I have the Wooden Camera one personally, and can highly recommend it.

I much prefer it to using Arri's own handles that lock into the bridgeplate - those offer very little in the way of adjustment, and stop you from being able to use a dovetail to achieve perfect balance on your shoulder.

Thanks Mark! This is awesome. Ergonomics for hand held cinematography is important to me, and this is is a great recommendation. Wooden Camera was my first choice and as I live in Hollywood, California their shop is like 10mins drive from me. I think I will bring my ARRI to their shop very soon and see if we can find a good shoulder rig / hand grip.

I like wooden grips and there are a few places that specialize in this like Omeneo , Moviegrip and Ergocine. Any recommendations? Will a 4 pin cable connect from my CE motor to the handgrip?
