    I use it with my Leica X2. Gripping the small camera (for my hands) feels a little precarious. With the Revo grip, I always feel secure in having an additional place to hold onto. It really feels like I can hold the camera still. It fits well with the sense of quality of the Leica. Of course, it's a hunk of metal and has a pattern that matches the characer of the camera. I would think it would be indispensible with a smallish camera for movies. A good thing, a good deal, and it even has a small protective pad for the camera bottom panel.

    Bought this because I wanted a smaller hand rig for my Canon G16. This is nicely built but it is way too small for even my small hands. If you want one of these, get the 5" version.

      Comments about 3" Hand Grip for Mid-Size Cameras (Black):

      I bought the Hand Grip for a Nikon CoolPix P7700 that I recently purchased from the used department at B & H. I use the CoolPix primarily to shoot video in very tight spaces and the Hand Grip made life so much easier. Shots are a lot steadier, and the grip fits perfectly in my hand. It's a great, lightweight gadget.

        Comments about 3" Hand Grip for Mid-Size Cameras (Black):

        Very well done and tough construct. Like the soft layer material in the top into the screw so that when you put the camera don't scratch it and create a tight seal. I use it with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W800 Digital Camera (Black) for better grip and stability. Also I mount it with the camera into a tripod because the Revo Hand Grip has another screw hole in the bottom that helps separated the camera from the base of the tripod and make it more comfortable. When you have it in your hand is excellent for recording videos. A must have accessory...

        Comments about 3" Hand Grip for Mid-Size Cameras (Black):

        If you have arthritis, etc. in your hands creating difficulty holding the smaller cameras, you may be interested in purchasing the 3" hand grip. I found it gives me the stability needed plus the grip is large enough in diameter to for one to hold comfortably. Your camera must come equipped with a tripod mount.

          Comments about 3" Hand Grip for Mid-Size Cameras (Black):

          I use the hand grip on the Coolpix cameras to steady the camera while shooting pictures and movies. Holding the camera with the hand grip is less tiresome than pressing the camera with your left hand thumb and index. My movies have improved tremendously.

          Comments about 3" Hand Grip for Mid-Size Cameras (Black):

          For small cameras and my big hands it's perfect. Excellent quality. If I lost it, I would have to buy another one. As always, B&H service was
          great.

              When paired with the tripod mount for goPro cameras this is a great compact handle for steadier handheld shots.

                Great product. Best money spent on a piece of metal. Turns compacts into serious video shooting device.

                  Comments about 3" Hand Grip for Mid-Size Cameras (Black):

                  I bought this for a Canon S100 to improve my ability to track steady while shooting video. It does that and a few other things. Macro work is steadier as well as casual street snaps in full point and shoot mode.

                  It's knurled surface is still fairly slick but a few turns of tennis racket handle tape fixed that but nothing fixes how it just about doubles the size of the camera so that it won't fit into a case while it's on. I'd give it five starts except for the fact that now I need a new camera bag if I want to leave it on all the time.
