    This works great. I had my Canon XSi mounted to my mountain bike. I mounted onto the handlebar and even low onto the suspension fork. I was apprehensive because I didn't want to damage my camera incase it came loose. It was rock solid the entire time. I never did any aggressive trail riding and after each series of shots I would alway check to make sure everything was tight. Only twice one of the bolts loosened slightly and the mount still held the camera up. I did find the long handle to interfere with some of the setups I tried. I liked the length because it provided more leverage to make sure it was tight. However, I wouldn't mind if it was slightly shorter so it wouldn't hit the camera platform. You can work around it, but you'd be compromising the kind of shot you're looking for. I'm planning on getting an extension rod so that I can get a wider shot from the bike.

    I also used this on another shoot where I used this clamp to mount it onto an 8 foot ladder so that I could shoot from a high angle. I'm just starting to discover the uses for this and I can't wait to try some more creative uses for it.

    Works as advertised, but after 2 days in my camera bag the padded sticker (for buffer between mount & camera) fell off and stuck to my flash. Now I have sticker residue on my flash, and can't trust that it'll stay on without having to glue it in place. Not well thought out... Only other complaint is that this combo is very heavy. Carrying this with a superclamp is not much of an advantage over simply carrying a tripod.

            Super easy and versatile. I can't believe I waited so long to get one of these. First time using it with the Super Clamp for some overheads paid it off completely. Got a remote to fire it from a distance and ended up being able to control it from over 500 feet away. Can't wait to get more accessories for this awesome clamp and platform system.

                            Bonus: can also be used as a speedlight/umbrella mount.

                                We have several of these for time lapse camera installations at construction sites. Matched with the Super Clamp you get a rock solid camera platform that can be attached in any number of places. The ball swivel gives you infinite opportunity to level the shot.

                                If you're out in the field shooting with still or video cameras you need this.

                                      Thoroughly impressed with the build quality. Larger than I thought, but not a problem.

                                        Works as expected. Great piece of gear for monitors, cameras, lights. Glad I have it in my kit. As all manfrotto gear, it's well made.

                                        I have had this 155 with the adjustable clamp attachment for over 20 years. I have found it to be very useful in places where a tripod won't.
                                        Clamping it to a humming bird feeder pole or on a deck rail.
                                        Make life a lot easier.
                                        Well built and will hold camera with battery pack and a long lens with no trouble.
                                        The only thing I don't like is I have no room in my system bag to store it.

                                          this is great for what I do, I install remote cameras all over the place. Makes mounting easy.
