4.0 out of 5 stars It has its uses as long as your camera is light., 16 Jan. 2012

This review is from: Polaroid Pistol Grip / Tabletop Tripod - 2 Tripods In 1 - Great For Shooting Video Or Tabletop Photography (Electronics)
I bought this for use with my iPhone. I have the Diffcase for the phone which has two tripod bushes on.

It's ideal for this use. Holding the iPhone when doing video is always awkward and it's so easy to get your finger in front of the lens or even drop it if you are pushed. With this pistol grip you have a good hold of the phone and can get angles that would be impossible by just holding the phone, especially high angle shots at arms length. Try doing that holding the phone between thumb and forefinger without dropping it.

With a heavier video camera at arms length it is difficult to keep still. My hands are pretty steady but there is a noticeable rotational movement in the recordings. This isn't a fault of the grip, just a limitation of the human arm. There is nothing stopping you from holding it in your right hand like a gun and griping the top of it with your left hand. This would increase stability

The plate that holds the screw that fixes to the base of the camera is on a pivot so that it can be tilted. It has click stops so you can have it at different positions. When it is positioned anywhere but horizontal (in pistol grip mode) it has slight wobble.

It's made from some sort of plastic which does the job well but exudes a strong inner-tube type smell. Maybe if there was a screw clamp instead of a spring release to adjust the angle it might have felt a but more solid.

I like it and for £8.99 you can't go wrong.
