There are an abundance of these types of handles available on Amazon and as far as I can tell, all seem to be basically the identical product, made from the same molds, probably coming from the same factory in China, just with different logos slapped on them. So, it made sense to just go ahead and get the cheapest one possible.
What you get is an adequate handle that is sufficient for mounting a lighter weight camera on. For this purpose, it works quite well. The plastic seems sturdy enough and there is a little bit of flex, but nothing major. It holds my Canon Vixia HF M50 quite securely. Trying to put a DSLR on it however, is a no go. I could not cinch it down tightly enough to prevent the camera from flopping and spinning around. For that application, I would look into a handle a bit more robust, such as a Cam Caddie Scorpion or perhaps the Opteka XL.
The smallish size of the handle, even with a small camcorder, does not provide enough clearance to...
It's cheap! TRUST ME: all of the other ones out there that look like this ARE EXACTLY THE SAME ITEM, just branded with a different name. Buy the cheapest one. The only variation is the 4-footed one vs. the "sled" one. I like the sled. Seems more solid, and I like a little extra weight for some added stability. There's also a grey one out there.
I altered the top shoe to mount a GoPro on it, so I can get the same shot with a different lens and speed.
I do wish I could get this same thing in a nice black aluminum (instead of plastic) but then I'd probably have to pay $60.
And there's no clearance beneath the handle for the camera's hot-shoe microphone, but I rarely need the two at the same time anyway.
This a neat contraption. It works really well for handheld shots. It's also awesome for getting shots really low to the ground. But I bought it primarily because I needed an external uni-directional mic & my camera doesn't have a shoe. So I went to the hardware store & bought a bolt that has threads on both ends, and I bought an extra knob with a screw in it (you'll understand when you see the item). That way I can have my camera attached to my tripod & also use the mic.
