    I use this to video tape myself while I demo how to watercolor paint. I love that you can clip it to so many different things. Currently I have it on a bookshelf and can angle it over my shoulder directly at the painting I'm creating. So much more flexible than the tripod I was using. I ordered the 10" Pro but I will eventually order more little pods to make it about 14 to 16 inches long for my needs, but honestly it works just fine this way. I love it and would recommend it to anyone who wants to have a lot more flexibility in photographing and video taping. I have a medium size camera and this is very sturdy and holds it right in place without any issues.

    On its own this is useful and simple.though it should have an adpator for a cold shoe mount.the big problem is that I also bought the Dinkum Systems Additional Links 3/4 (5 Segment) designed to be compatible. It is decidedly not. Links don't fit together. I hurt my hand; the salesman hut his hand when I brought it back. they simply do not fit together. Together we tried multiple Dinkum pieces but none of them fit together.

            I started making video tutorials and was having the hardest time angling my canon digital camera. I bought this and it is the best investment I ever made! It is compatible with a few of my devices and is so easy to use. I took it out of the box and used it right away. No set up required. It clips on to just about anything and is really strong so it holds really well. Totally having fun positioning this and finding creative ways tot film. Great purchase! Highly recommend!

                Have used this spring clamp/arm in place of a tripod a few times-- on a pretty heavy camera/lens maxing out its recommended weight capability. (nikon d4/28-70 2.8 lens) It held but only upright.
                Its good for tight spots-- I did duct tape one time because it was windy for extra stability. Also, for travel purposes where weight/space is an issue and a tripod too much I feel its a good alternative.

                    Needed a 4th close-up cam of keyboard's fingers in a pinch at a band shoot. Clamped this on the side of the Hammond B3 with a Jellyfish/iPhone6 on top and it worked great! Good for small cameras such as smartphones, Q4, Sony MV1, Sony HDR-CX405 or a small mic. Will no support the weight of something like a Rebel or 70D.

                      Mainly use the product for GoPro 4 Black and I love this reliable easy to use product. It is [$] cheaper than the official GoPro flex accessory and 10 times better in all the right ways!

                              I purchased this product after reading the reviews on it. I am a musician and film our shows , if we do not have a person to film we have to use tripod. Which has to be in a secure area where people can't run into it, probably the worst place to film. This is a heavy duty adapter.We clamp it to staging , ceiling beams, speaker arrays, guitar necks etc. also can be used for lighting if you are using a tri pod for your camera

                                This product has delivered everything I was looking for in my application. I actually was impressed with a feature I didn't even know it had. The ability to shorten the length by "popping" out the extra pieces I didn't need made this even more versatile in my application. This would make a great addition to any gig bag due ti it's strong clip, sturdy construction and adaptable configuration. A great buy!

                                      Needed something to stablize my Canon 5D-III, which, with lens, weighs about 6 lbs, when shooting nature videos in various locations where a tripod wouldn't fit or couldn't work. The ActionPod PRO did the job, and beautifully. Once I had the camera mounted, and the ActionPod clamped in place, it was easy to adjust and I was delighted to find it held position firmly, for as long as I needed it to. A really handy work-horse item for any photog's tool-kit!

                                        I used it mount a second camcorder to get another perspective of fast moving objects close up. The clamp held the camera in place and it was easy to position the camera in the correct position and it stayed.

                                        It's not overly large so I can carry it my photo vest or camera bag.

                                            I use this to video tape myself while I demo how to watercolor paint. I love that you can clip it to so many different things. Currently I have it on a bookshelf and can angle it over my shoulder directly at the painting I'm creating. So much more flexible than the tripod I was using. I ordered the 10" Pro but I will eventually order more little pods to make it about 14 to 16 inches long for my needs, but honestly it works just fine this way. I love it and would recommend it to anyone who wants to have a lot more flexibility in photographing and video taping. I have a medium size camera and this is very sturdy and holds it right in place without any issues.

                                                This is so cool! I use it to mount additional lighting for video projects. It's strong enough to hold my ~2 lb light, and then some. I didn't realize when I bought it, but the clip is also shaped perfectly to grip to a tripod stand, so I could clip my light on right under my camera, or on another light stand to fill light from a different angle. I love this thing!
