Hands free shoulder pad. I think it can be used for the version 2 long lenses, only draw back is its made of plastic that would get brittle through time. I'll attach all the straps I could muster for insurance.
Here's how it looks on my shoulder.
When shooting at a high angle you take it out and use the shoulder support like a gun butt which transfers most of the load on to your shoulder.
Didn't know what to expect when I ordered this at aliexpress.com. I was surprised to get a product that came as what I've envision it and it works well. It arrived after 3 weeks.
If its was not made of plastic it can hold the 600 V1 but it would surely hold the V2. Product description says it could hold up to 5kg.
