Good but not great
on 17 October 2014
I love the concept of this product. I've used it on several occasions to film stuff or do timelapses with my iPhones 5S on top of my ENG camera. The way the mount works is by sliding the iPhone in and the tight grip holds it in place. The grip is so good my iPhone stayed on top of my camera when I was filming a photocall on a beach in Cannes for the 20th anniversary for Pulp Fiction. I ran from the projectors to the front and it stayed on great! The slomo footage looks awesome!
Now the reason why I didn't give it 5 stars was because the grip is so tight, you can't have a screen protector on your phone. I work in an environment where slips can happen and I'll be damned if my screen is smashing because of this product. There are a ton of better designed products that can do the same job.
Sorry Studio Neat, good effort but not quite a winner.
