    For the price its great, and it can get the job done, but don't expect super stability and at times it can be slightly uncomfortable.

    I do however get the best use from my Stedi- Stock when coupled with a smaller video camcorder with flip out screen.

    When coupled with my DSLR for video it's usually with the shoot and go assignments. Like music videos or at the occasional weddings or anything that acquires B-Roll Footage.

    I bought this for a wedding video I shot and it worked well. The footage is obviously still handheld but this made it watchable. Before my DSLR would be all over the place while focusing and adjusting the dials. This simplified that. Its only $20 and between this and rigging my camera strap around my neck it was pretty darn stable. This isnt a steadycam rig so dont buy this expecting that or a zacuto shooter. Duh! Its plastic and just a bit better than holding with your own hands. I think using a tripod head on this would work well and add more control.

    Worth every cent I didn't pay for it

        Comments about Stedi-Stock Shoulder Brace (Black):

        Mine came as a "freebie" with a 20-60X spotting scope. It's worth about what I paid for it. I am 5'7", this device feels like it was designed for children or dwarves. It's too small to be of any use. I suggest a comparison with even a small .22 carbine; a decent shooter can hold such a rifle steady enough to hit a walnut-sized target at 25 yards -- which is pretty much what squirrel hunters routinely do.

            +I wasn't originally too excited about the handle but I think it is useful for quick deployment. You definitely still need to brace yourself against something solid or set the scope on a sand bag if you are not using a tripod-The shoulder mount has 3 holes in it to secure to the 2 holes in the sighting scope (so you can unjust back and forth to your comfort) They only included one bolt to attach the grip and that seconds as the handle. This makes the scope sturdy vertically but it will spin around 360 degrees without a second bolt. (Luckily I have a toolbox full of bolts and found one to add to it.)

                This came free with a Vortex Razor spotting scope I had ordered. Frankly, I really didn't see myself needing it but it works and is helpful when a tripod doesn't fit the bill such as during a hike, etc. Would I actually pay for one and buy it separately? Perhaps, I just don't have the need right now.

                    Works good on my spotting scope but on high power it is hard to hold still enough. That is to be expected. But on low power it is ok.

                      This is very useful when I'm track deer or elk. I use this with my Nikon Pro staff spotting scope. This makes the scope very ergonomic.

                        I found that I was able to have a steadier hold on my Canon rebel. I had less blury shots using my 300mm telephoto. I shoot a lot of birds. Follow a moving one was much easier than using a tripod or monopod and easier to line up. I did get a couple looks from police in parks until they saw it wasn't a firearm.

                              Great little device that won't break the bank. It does what it should and that is about it, so don't expect it to replace a $ piece of equipment. It does seem a little flimsy, but not overly so. It could almost be bigger, but the actual size is fine.

                                I took the Stedi-stock out and looked it over. It didnt look like it would do much good. After puting it on my spotting scope I was plesently surprised. It is not as steady as a tripod but it helps stedi the scope where you can do a quick scan of the area.

                                  I am using the brace with a Nikon D7100 and it makes a huge difference in the steadiness of the camera. It is certainly worth the price, maybe even a bargain. My only complaint is that the forward hand grip has to be tightened occasionally.

                                    I sometimes shoot DSLR video from a helicopter so I bought this because it was very inexpensive and lightweight. It is quick to set up and comfortable on the shoulder. I use cameras with flip out screens so an eyepiece works quite well with the stock. In addition I can clamp the stock between my body and arm for steadier low level shots. A minor issue is that the front part is a little sharp on the palm of the hand focusing and zooming. This will stay in my bag as a quick video rig. Definitely worth the money.

                                    I gave it a one star because I had to... Hope you aren't thinking of actually paying money for this. I got it with a scope - what junk.

                                          This device is too small and flimsy to be much use. It came free with my spotting scope, and I can not hold the scope to my eye comfortably with it. I tried it with my Canon DSLR, and again, the geometry is just wrong. In both cases, it did not feel ready to support the weight I was putting on it.

                                            This product is a must for bird photographers.
                                            It allows the user to use his/her body as a tripod for shooting up into the trees.
                                            It's very portable with only initial set-up required unlike a mono-pod or tripods if the bird keeps moving.
                                            Ideal for photographers on the move like bush-walkers.
                                            I use it with a Nikon D7000 & 55~300mm lens without a problem. Being plastic it is as light as a feather.

                                            This is a piece of plastic. Need I say more?
                                            Glad it was free with purchase.

                                            Directly into landfill.

                                            I was a little surprised at the simplicity and flimsy of this stedi stock. Wish I would have seen it on a shelf somewhere. To pay that much for a couple pieces of molded plastic and a bolt. I could have made one out of a 2x4 with a Dremel tool and a drill. It does the job, but the plastic is on the thin side. I'm almost afraid to crank down the camera and put too much pressure on it.

                                              This product is great for supporting and steadying a big telephoto lens when shooting fast-moving action. It's very simple to use, and it really works. My bird photography, hand-holding a 400mm lens while sitting in a kayak, has improved tremendously using this little gadget. It's lightweight and a little bit flex-y, but that doesn't take away from its ability to help manage a heavy hand-held lens.
