A larger mass will be more effective at isolating vibration.

The mass makes absolutely no difference. It is the natural frequency of the object that matters.

When the frequency of the vibration in Hertz coincides with the natural frequency of the object, the oscillation ( shake) tends towards infinity.

If you know how to do it, one can get a structure weighing many tons to vibrate by swaying on your feet.

However the mass helps with camera shake as it requires more effort to move the object.
