I finally got my FS100 and love it so far. Thanks so much for all of your advice during my purchase decision.

I actually feel decently comfortable with it hand-held, but won't once i get a little more weight on it.

I'm looking for a sub-$800 base plate rig with, hopefully, a shoulder mount system.

Has anyone had success with the CPM (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/733974-REG/CPM_Film_Tools_SHOOT_DSLR_SHLDR_DSLR_Shoulder_Shoo ter_Kit.html) shoulder rig? How is the base plate? Is the cage too bulky?

I'm also considering the Genus (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/769540-REG/Genus_GL_GVCSMK_GL_GVCSMK_Video_Shoulder.html) rig, but the rails look kind of short and it is pricey.

Lastly, the Genus hot late coupled with the Red Rock micro shoulder mount looks like it could be an option.

Thanks for your help!

I can only add that rigging this camera is not that easy to do

I have had to concentrate very much on keeping the camera low on the shoulder to clear my cans!

I woud try and buy from a physical dealer
