Is anyone regularly using their T2i with a steady cam device? If so, which one?

I've got a battery grip for my T2i to give it a bit more weight, and am now trying to decide which steady cam to go with. I'm leaning towards the Merlin, although I think the Glidecam 2000 may be suitable as well. I assume the Glidecam 4000 HD is not really an option, right?

Anyone have any insight? Cost isn't a huge issue, but something that also works with the 5D is desirable.

I use a flycam and it works great. Team it with the Tokina 11-16 and I'm in heaven!

I have it on Merlin Steadicam. The base plate blocked the battery door. So I use my t2i with battery grip. It works better that way since the extra weight helped the stablization.

$14 for the Johnny Lee steadicam, believe it or not it works. :)
