      Great little add on to my DSLR setup. I've attached a flash arm to the side of this little handle which makes the grip area a bit longer and then mount a mic on the flash arm which gives better reach for the mic.

        Very sturdy option for low shots without a full cage/rig, and makes for easy lifting and transport. Plenty of 1/4-20 slots on the top & sides for cold shoe mounts. I use it with my iphone on top as an audio recorder, and it's just big enough to secure it in place. It's the perfect addition to my Zacuto slingshot.

            Great little handle with numerous threaded holes for attachments. I would have like it to be a little longer for a better grip.

            I really like this little handle. Its way cheaper than the insane price point i've seen for similar products.

            The thing is, its a little small for my hand. I wish it was about 30 percent bigger and I'd give it 5 stars.

            But it reliably holds my monitor and mic and still allows me to get low angle shots quite easily. Combined with my mini-rig its a great purchase.

            A decent bit of kit for the minimalist, I found the quality to be good but not great, not sure how often I will use the threaded screw holes as they can restrict hand position. The finish on my example was average.

            This handle is very small with just a little side to side play. What I like about handles is they allow you to get cool, natural low angle shots. However, this handle isn't long enough to grab further forward to tilt properly. Also, there is a rubber label on the front tht would be the most logical spot to attatch a monitor, but you can't because it is the only spot without 1/4-20 holes.

                  Constructed well, with lots of threads for accessories. Small enough to not be obtrusive, solid feeling enough to seem reliable BUT-

                  The nut that threads down to clamp the unit tight in the camera shoe doesnt thread down all the way. It doesn't even touch the shoe. Since I needed to use it on the day I cut a piece of cardboard to make a washer. That still didn't really do the trick so I just took the thing off all together.

                  Fatal flaw on an otherwise promising piece of low cost gear.

                    I have a few consumer camcorders that I use this with. Great way to add extra hotshoes for accessories like mics and lights. Looks and feels sturdy. Could use an inch more grip
