Battle of the Shoulder Rigs

Small or large, camera rigs can get heavy and shoulder rigs can help. It’s a style that may not be for everyone but for those who enjoy it- which setup is best?

While keeping it all well balanced is the key for comfort, Smallrig offers a few choices that might be interesting to take a look at. Here are my thoughts on two of those choices for the Canon C200 (but of course these could be adapted to work with any camera).
