          Good way to hold one of the really small camcorders or a small camera such as my Canon G12 while shooting video. Really helps keep things more stable and is easy to pack into a small camera bag.

            Nice but not tight enough, a bit loose, would have been nice if it could be locked in place. But a good low budget handle for the price. Ok

            Comments about Video Innovators CH-1000 Camcorder Handle:

            I was looking for a small, padded grip to assist in holding my new camcorder. This is just the ticket! The foam handle is very comfortable, easy to grip and offers just the right amount of extra handle. The camcorder screws on easily and is secure. The tilting head offers a very ergonomically friendly shooting angle which helps in maintaining a steady shooting angle. I didn't find the spring loaded tilting head to be a problem at all. As light weight as modern camcorders are these days, I doubt that it would slip out of position. The overall small size makes it easy to cary in your equipment bag or even leave it attached.

            You can't hardly go wrong for the price!

            Comments about Video Innovators CH-1000 Camcorder Handle:

            I have used my CH-1000 with a Sony HVR-A1U and an HV30 w/lens,mic,batt.

            Does add be stability when filming without tripod.

            One big problem is the 3-positions "feature" There is no way to lock the handle in 1 or the 3 positions. If you have a medium sized rig (eg: HV30 with lens, mic, wireless etc.) the handle can slip into another position (way not cool) putting your gear in jeopardy.

              Screws on easily; easy to grip; stable. Would be nice if it wasn't a passive locking system, but is still firm enough that you can be confident it will be stable.

              BEST GRIP EVER!

              Comments about Video Innovators CH-1000 Camcorder Handle:

              Handle screws into my Canon HV30 quickly and is very comfortable to hold. I no longer have to stress my wrist during those long film sessions.
              Fits in a small compartment pocket in my camera bag. I even took it on a plane twice.
