    Another shoulder pad that that may fit to this concept is MOVCAM shoulder pad. It is low profile and reasonable priced:

    This shoulder pad probably require some cheese plate and rail block in front. MOVCAM also design a very interesting system around it. See this video:

    Wonder how metal plate connected to the foam pad. Maybe foam pad have some metal core plate inside? Or maybe it is made of hard plastic? Anyone use this shoulder pad before?

    Here are also some thoughts about Pocket4K and 6K ergonomics. That camera form factor is not designed for modification or rigging. It is designed in Photo Camera form factor aka all-in-one solution to quick grab camera and quickly shoot something from hands or from tripod. It is ergonomically very limited and any further rigging or modification for this camera makes it look like monster without any respect to 100 years of cinema camera ergonomics evolution. Especially when you you start to add cage, external SSD, monitor, external battery and mess of cables sticking out around.





    For normal rigging camera should be designed in simple modular form factor, like enhanced BMMCC:
    - cage-friendly brick-like body
    - Sony NP-F battery slot or tiny sized V-lock at back side
    - main connectors at the back side or somehow directed backwards with angle adapters
    - HDMI port directed to front to allow normal cable flow to on-camera monitor
    - buttons located on the left side for easy access
    - separate optional removable side handle with buttons connected with LANC (or similar) interface
    - lightweight specially designed monitor with proper HDMI port placement at the back side
