    Comfortable

    Comfortable to hold. The side cold shoe seems pretty useless though since it is in such close proximity to the top shoe. I like that it's very adjustable otherwise.

    I'm using it as a handle to hold the camera as well. The downside is that it's not flexible.

        Good bracket. Wish the foam on handle was a little thicker for my big hands Rubber on the bottom holds the camera really well. Only complaint on the one I got was that the threaded hole ( where you would mount on a tripod ) on the bottom of the bolt that goes into the camera, the threads were messed up could not mount to a tripod. Need to call BH about replacing bolt.

        This bracket feels solid. My only complaint is that the tripod mounting screw is too short for my (tripod-mounted) XLR adaptor. But it will likely be long enough for most cameras.

            I ordered this bracket along w/ a Suma SL-200LXI Video Light. Perfect!
            Feels good in hand, stable and balanced w/ my JVC cam on it. Can't go wrong w/ this little guy! I use it just about all the time now, with or without the light as my video's are that much more steady.

                  Comments about Smith-Victor TR56 Flash and Video Bracket:

                  I would rate this 5 stars easy. My setup is a 60D, with a videomic pro on top of the 60D, which goes into my H1, which is atop this bracket, with a ball mount so the H1 is angled the same way as my 60D. The only problem was that this bracket came with the top cold shoe loose, and the side one a tiny bit loose. When I used it, you could hear it rattle through my mic, and it didnt feel secure. Now I got some tools and tightened it up, and its perfect. I recommend it if you know how to tighten a cold shoe down.

                    Works good and helps to stabilize the Handicam when shooting freehand (not mounted to a tripod). It's also a good place to mount and external mic or light if needed.

                          Very good and strong mounting bracket. The grip feels very good and helps to balance my VIXIA HF S21 Camcorder.
                          Too bad that I can not use it on the left had side because it blocks the touch LCD panel.I wish they could have made this bracket with this issue in mind.

                              This product is small enough that it doesn't get in the way, but adds just the right amount of weight needed to get stable hand held shots on a small consumer camcorder. I just use it to mount my onboard mic and it hasn't let me down yet. Super cheap and sturdy. I like how it fits as a snug connector between my camera and tripod plate.

                                I shoot on HV30s and HV20s with Sennheiser wireless lavs. These handles are perfect for mounting both receivers AND giving me the extra control (grip) I need WITHOUT added weight.

                                  I wanted to find a collapsible, compact bracket but the ones I found seemed rickety. This one fit my bill with dual cold shoes and a padded handle. Sturdy without being too heavy.

                                    I bought this to mount a Zoom H1 to my 7D. Works well so far. I'm a big fan of the double bracket so I can mount other things to the camera. My only complaint is that the bottom part of the bracket doesn't connect very well to tripod plates, but I mostly use it with a monopod.

                                      Love having the two shoes. I use the bracket to steady a Kodak Zi8 handheld and use a shotgun mike and LED light.
