New Camera Shoulder Mounts

The movie I'm shooting right now is a comedy mockumentary.

Much of the film is handheld, and I've decided to use the Tamron 17-50 f2.8 VC for most of the movie.
I'm also using a certain grade of LowCon filter. I've been using my Old ass Birns and Sawyer DV2000 shoulder mount like this:

I've been having a LOT of back pain
and I think I want to switch out to one of these:

They have a similar appearance to the Zacuto rigs, but seem a lot cooler because they are made by a dude in Korea and are more affordable.

I definitely want to ditch my redrock setup if anyone is interested, otherwise it should be on ebay by the holidays.

New Film, New Festival

Just started shooting another feature on the 7D.

It's a comedy, it's going to be funny. I'm using a bit different lensing on this one, and different filtration.

New Canon Film Festival.

This sounds cool because the prizes are cool.

This sounds extremely CRAP because:
1. You have to pay $40 to enter. Why the Fuck should I pay $40 to enter a film festival when I already blew my wad buying three Canon 7Ds and batteries. Probably never buying a canon Lens. Never say never though.

2. They mention that you have to shoot with a canon HD DSLR including the 7D, the 5DII, or the 1DMKIV - what about the rebel T1i?
