mmontgomery,

the design offered at http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~johnny/steadycam/ looks like it may be more stable because it offers two points to hold.

thanks again for the advice.

I have a full vest mount system and I have found that the more points you touch it at the more unstable it becomes. Movements look more jerky the more you touch it. I only touch mine with two fingers, and it is perfectly stable while running or going up stairs or anything. But if I hold it tight the footage looks like crap. What I am getting at is the tighter you hold it the less stable it will look.If it is anything like mine that is. Take into account that I have a full professional kit though.
