This is no good for walking/moving your self with camera, the handle as a another reviewer has pointed out, is to flexible and bounces about. It is good for getting low angle shots or pans, and will be useful for that, but don't expect a stedi-cam type result from this it's not even close. I will be posting my test walk with this on youtube, can't seem to post video reviews here.

Also, had to add a 2KG divers weight to the bottom, to give it some mass, with camera alone, it's far too light. 2.5 stars really, as it's fairly cheap, don't expect too much though.

I do alot of skateboarding with my mates and when we started to get better we filmed a bit of it. As time goes on and we get more keen, i decided to invest in some new equipment. I bought a new camera (Fujifilm Finepix HS10) but i needed a handle for low angle shots. This handle is amazing! Even when i run with it in my hand alongside my skating mates it is still incredibly steady. My camera is quite heavy so maybe that helps, but never the less it is awesome and i truly recommend it!

It's light but robust and has a confortable grip, but it gives a little too much vibrations when shooting videos with a ~700 grams camera (Panasonic FZ100 with a DMW-LWA52E wide conversion lens)

I bought the Opteka X-Grip as I had to do some outdoor, night time filming and one of the shots required a steady tracking pan along a queue of people. As the camera I use (A Panasonic X900M Full HD 1920 x 1080p (50p) 3D Ready Camcorder with Built-In Viewfinder - Black (3MOS Sensor, 23x Intelligent Zoom, 32GB Built-in Flash, SD Card Recording, Leica Dicomar Lens and Manual Control Ring) 3.5 inch LCD has great image stabilisation, I used this grip to hold the light.

The resulting shot was fantastic, I ended up leaving the grip on for the remainder of the night and now use it almost everywhere.

I didn't realise that you are still able to use the cameras standard side grip with this fitted, you can even add a bottom support handle or counter balance if you wish.

In summary then, a superb grip that can help give fantastic results. The only caveat is that this is probably not ideal for heavy SLR cameras. I've not tried my EOS body with it, but I suspect it would be a little to flimsy for a weighty camera like that.

Five stars!

I bought one of these grips some months ago and they are a great idea. But why on Earth has it been made out of plastic and not aluminium? Once a camcorder is attached the whole thing flexes all over the place. It's great idea that hasn't been thought through properly. Opteka, make one from ally and I'd gladly buy another one!

Just got this product today, I was pretty excited to test it out. Put my Nikon DSLR on and am disappointed. When the plate is attached under the camera you can still move it with a bit of a push. Like you wouldn't want to do alot of running with it cause the camera a plate moves so its not really secure. Positive's its grand when walking as long as you have a good strong grip of the camera, It shouldn't move.

Overall as a freelance camera operator it would be worth forking out a bit of cash for a good stabilizer instead of this one

If you own any Canon products that have a 'mini accessory shoe' this product is a great way to get round it. i got this and a Rode video mic and it was still cheaper than buying a Canon mic (that can not then be attached to a boompole or used on a non Canon camera etc)

i found the lack of weight at the bottom of the grip a slight problem however i worked round this by using an extra long life battery (which is three or four times the size of the battery the camera came with), this gave the camera the extra weight needed to make the grip steady.

This is worth having :)

Product felt a lot lighter than I would have expected.

The increase in stability from handheld was noticeable, say a 30-40% decrease in shake.

On my first job with this item (an engagement party with a lot of slow, walking shots) this items broke. The hotshoe on the top where I had my light attached came off, as did the mount for the camera itself.

So I got maybe 4 hours actual use from the product.

Could be I had bad luck.

Wouldn't recommend, more worthwhile to save longer & buy higher end.
