I'm using this to save space in my home studio - where previously I had to use a tripod, I now have this hanging off a SuperClamp which is clamped securely to the picture rail!
At first glance this doesn't really look very strong at all but it IS rated for 1.5kg when fully extended which is more than enough for my Canon 600D, battery grip (two batteries in there), a 50mm 1.8 lens (very light) and an iPad mini which I use as an auto-cue.
The arm is easily handling the weight and the real beauty of this thing lies in the fact that it is quick and easy to achieve any camera position I need. If I knock it, it will wobble for a second and then settle - with my tripod - if I knock that, it falls over! So this is an improvement and again, a huge space saver.
I like it so much that another is already on order and I half suspect there will be more ordered in the future!
Don't listen to the people saying it won't hold a DSLR, it will and it will hold it securely (provided of course you are keeping it static as opposed to on your bike or back of your car).
Worth every penny - definitely.
