I haven't had the pleasure of doing a show that is mostly handheld... Alexa and Codex most likely, just wondering what rigs or supports are out there and what did you like or dislike about them.

there is one that looked like the leaf spring from a car strapped around the neck to hang about your chest which went under both arms for support???

I  believe you're looking for a weight lifting arm curl support. Found at any good gym supply place.

That's exactly what it looked like... just black and I guess if you support it up higher at the chest, it would be in the perfect position for supporting a camera at the mattebox.
