Good quality mount, but shaky if using on a moving object
on 4 July 2016
- Pros: Well-built, powerful suction cup, Lots of flexibility when setting the angle for the camera.
- Cons: Too much movement when using on a moving source (eg. a car), which causes video footage to be shaky.
Unfortunately this only gets three stars from me. Although the build quality is generally very good and the suction cup is powerful, the design is flawed in that even when the suction cup is tightly secured to a surface, there is still a large amount of movement in the arm. This isn't a problem when stationary, but if you're planning to use this on a moving object (such as a car), the camera shakes quite considerably, which impairs the video quality. I used this with a modern DSLR which is not particularly heavy and well below the stated weight limit, but having said that, there would probably be less shake if using the mount with a small action cam (like a GoPro). But really, that defeats the point of this mount which is to get better quality video using a proper camera.
All in all a bit of a shame, since apart from the shake issue, the mount is really very good.
