    The weight isn't a problem with the FS100 rigged up at about 15-18 lbs, but I wanted to buy a future proof head/tripod that I can keep for the next 5-10 years. Might purchase something like a used F3 or Red MX sometime in the future.
    The DV-10 looks a bit small and disproportionate to the size of the legs, so I think I'll just exchange it for the DV-12. I think it may even be smaller than the Manfrotto 504HD.

    Awesome rig, Gary! Do you mind sharing the specs on it? What kind of grips and shoulder mount is that?

    How do you handle that beast on the shoulder Gary?
    The pad is way behind the center of balance and I imagine that you have to carry all the wight on your stretched out arms, even with that thingy that preses against your chest.

    Is it comfortable if you wear it for a while?

    Here's how I've been using my FS100 a lot lately. Strictly for shoulder use, small and compact. I'm all about small and efficient rigs that do the same thing as a monstrous rig. It can be set flat on a table or ground if you turn the handle inwards.

    The 15mm rod system I already had 23.5 inches long, so I added this from Cine City works just fine.

    Monitor is a Lilliput 7" HDMI on camera monitor similar to this, though I am replacing it at a later date.

    The battery set up was this. http://www.ebay.com/itm/220807297306...84.m1439.l2649

    The lenses I use are leica summicron R 50mm, 35mm, 19mm and then the kit lens 18-200mm.

    The monitor arm + clamp is this. http://www.ebay.com/itm/260785137847...84.m1439.l2649

    The Leica R to Sony emount adapter is this. http://www.ebay.com/itm/260747925768...84.m1439.l2649

    The matte box is the Proaim MB-600. http://www.thecinecity.com/eshop/home.php?cat=26

    and then I have a follow focus system which is not in the picture.

    It handles very well Frank, and the position of the pad and grips were for quick display only.
    I adjust the pad and grips when I am using it as a shoulder mount a little differently
    than is shown in the picture.

    The center of the weight is not quite on my shoulder when
    adjusted but it's not bad, it just depends on what I have on the front and back end as to
    how I adjust it and yes it is comfortable at least for me, not to bad on the arms.
    The brace in the front also helps.
    Though I use a steadicam system and a tripod most of the time.

    Thanks for explaining Gary.

    I have the same grips and really like them - they are a bit heavy, but much more solid as those Zacuto style clamp-on things.
    I can hold my whole 25lbs rig at one grip with confidence.

    I really like the light weight approach, would you mind sharing a link to the shoulder pad?
    Thanks in advance..
