Back pain from carrying the camera

I wear the Insta360 One RS (250 grams weight) about 15 hours a week. I've recently had tension in my upper back that I associate with carrying the camera. I would like to know if other people have similar experiences and if there are any tips on how to prevent it.

Best regards

If you are currently using the hardhat mount, I suggest purchasing an Insta360 “selfie stick”. I have an extendable stick that I attach the camera to which has increased quality of my job walks. I found it is way more comfortable than adding weight to your head/neck which I bet is adding to your backpain. 

@benauerochs are you using a chin strap? We are doing a risk assessment for a full time capture operator, if anyone else had any issues with long term usage please share them.

agreed, Ive used three different cameras and two different hardhats w the mounts placed a bit different. 

I never checked the weights but the Insta360 One I am using now feels really heavy on my head, I finally caved and got a selfie stick.
