The Vello ActionPan Professional Grade Stabilizing Action Grip allows you to hold your camera down low when filming skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding, auto racing, motocross, BMX/FMX and even when boating. Besides just facilitating a novel filming perspective, the ActionPan will steady your shot as well. It can be used with most SLR cameras or camcorders (with max height of 4.5") that feature a 1/4"-20 tripod mount. The 1/4"-20 screw on the bracket is adjustable, to better accommodate cameras of different configurations.

The ActionPan features a shock-proof rubber handle that alleviates stress by offering a comfortable, secure grip. There's also a finger groove for securing grip, as well as non-slip rubber rails for further securing your camera to the mount. As an added bonus, the ActionPan is equipped with a removable accessory shoe mount on the top, which can hold your video light, camera flash or external microphone. If you plan to capture action sports from any angle, especially low angles, the ActionPan is a must have.

    Bought this for the Sony AX-100. Started accessorizing it then one thing lead to another. Added a Noga Cine Arm to hold a Sennheiser shotgun mic. A coiled 3-Pin XLR-M to Angled 3-Pin XLR-F Cable, store bought threaded bolt hardware wrapped with heavy duty fuel line to hold wireless. A Manfrotto 577 Rapid Connect Adapter with Sliding Mounting Plate (501PL), a Manfrotto 492LCD Micro Ball Head to hold a light, and an old Beachtek DXA-6A. An Ikan universal grip bar can be attached at the bottom of the Beachtek device for added stability and comfort. Don't laugh...It works! This Vello Actionpan is strong enough (to me) to hold these add-ons and produce great handheld shots plus grabbing great audio when needed. You'll have to angle quick release plate to accommodate the length of your camera...this way you can use the EVF. Everything must be tightened up snug but you knew that. Thanks Vello and BH for great quality products at great prices.

    A useful tool everyone should have. I use this with my Sony HDR-CX580v, GoPro Hero 3: Black Editon, and Canon Rebel T3i. Very useful for low angle shots. Don't expect this to cut out ALL of your shakiness. It takes practice to use this right. I use Final Cut Pro X in post, to use the stabilization effect on the desired clip. I wasn't exactly thrilled with the fact that this is made of plastic. However, it feels surprisingly solid. If you take care of it, it'll really work for you. The mount on top is useful if you want to put a light or shotgun mic on it.

      I only needed this for a trip, it worked fine for what I needed, My concern was for money savings, I'm not a pro guy with videos. It holds my camera well, it makes a cool shot through low grass, I do like that you can set it down and it is stable

          Worked well for simple actions with an easily adjustable pull focus or single stills. Handle does bend slightly under more than 6lbs

              This will definitely give you better control over your camera. However it's poorly constructed from plastic, and hard to tighten your camera and mounted microphone down tight enough.

                    Very stinky plastic almost make you puke but perhaps time with take care of this.

                            Comments about Vello ActionPan Professional Grade Stabilizing Action Grip/Handle:

                            This was the first stabilizer I've owned and love it! Some people talk about a flimsy design, but I have not found that to be true, though, I have a much smaller HD camera that I use with it. However, the lack of weight to help reduce some of the shakey-cam effects is something I have to stabilize myself. That is fine, though, as it is part of becoming an independent filmmaker! That being said, just like any tool, it takes practice to become proficient with it.

                            I found that using two hands on this device can add so much greater control than I expected than just one! On top of that, I sometimes use the back of the handle against my cheek as a third stabilizer since my camera uses a digital monitor for its viewfinder. This helps out greatly if I need to use one hand to adjust the focus or to punch in and out without having too much shake to the footage.

                            This equipment is very affordable and easy to navigate with. Very light, and has a firm grip to hold. Works fantastic with my t3i camera. You just have to practice how to get your ideal shot

                            handle was purchased for an iphone to film skateboarding. while it has a nice grip, i don't believe the foam material will last in sweaty hands. it would be great if someone made a grip/handle in this fashion designed for an iphone.

                              Use it for sweeping movements or action shots. A lot of fun. Even though, its plastic, it doesnt feel too cheap and its durable. Good for what it is.
