I was lucky enough to be able to borrow one of these handy little devices on my elk hunting trip to Utah. It was lightweight and packed easily into my luggage (although you need to leave it on the top so at the airport they can examine it since it looks like a rifle stock in the X-ray machine.) It is one slick device!
We used it while just holding the video camera in the truck, freehanded, and we also used it on our scouting walks, along with the monopod. It was amazing how much difference it made while filming, especially when you are not acclimated to the altitude yet and you are huffing and puffing while trying to film.
