A few years back Erwin posted about the Camera Comfort Cushion for handheld operating. With the advent of memory foam and gel, I wonder if there are any new solutions, either DIY or manufactured. If you own a CCC, does it do the job for you? Have you tried any customized foam inside the zippered pocket?
I went to Home Depot today and didn't find anything suitable to modify from their (surprisingly small) selection of kneepads. Maybe I'll try Lowes.
I just started a handheld show for a few weeks and my shoulder is taking a beating from the mediocre shoulder pad. For now I'm stuffing a square of two-inch open-cell foam under my shirt and it works okay but I'd love to have a better solution.
