    Comments about Jimmy Box Wireless Receiver Holder - Support Handle, Padded Interior:

    Easy to install, holds one Zaxcom or Lectro. The handle i'll have to wait and see what the shooters think of it, but it seems to me it'll relive the awkwardness of handling these smaller cameras. The simple fact that it's centrally balanced seems to make them very happy. It's pretty cool that you can mount a tripod plate to the bottom, but not cool that the handle wont fit at the same time. That's about the only room for improvement that I see.

      Comments about Jimmy Box Wireless Receiver Holder - Support Handle, Padded Interior:

      This accessory helped me in a few ways. Up until now, I've been placing my Lectrosonics wireless receiver in the hand-strap of my camera. Two problems with that - 1) Going handheld with my camera became more challenging due to the loss of use of the hand strap, and 2) I wasn't able to read the display of the wireless receiver when I had the tripod extended to it's tallest position.

      The Jimmy Box freed up the hand strap so now handheld shooting is easier. I can now position the wireless receiver so that I can read the display. It has also added a couple of inches of height to the set up allowing me to get above people's heads while shooting events. Also, now the weight balance left and right is better due to having the wireless receiver underneath the camera rather than to one side.

      One problem - Once the tripod mounting plate is attached to the bottom of the Jimmy Box, the mounting screw comes through the bottom a little too far for the wireless receiver to sit flush with the bottom of the Jimmy Box.

      Also, I would like for the entire interior of the Jimmy Box to be lined in something that won't scratch the receiver or other devices mounted inside.
