Cam Caddie CC-100 overview

  • 1Description

The Cam Caddie Scorpion is a versatile universal camera handle and stabilizer that allows you to maneuver compact cameras such as DSLRs, point-and-shoots, and action cameras the same way as you would a traditional video camcorder. The ergonomic handle is constructed from a lightweight composite and a custom formulated polymer grip, providing a stable and solid platform to comfortably hold and maneuver the camera. You can even mount a DSLR camera perpendicular to the top handle, which positions the back portion of the handle on the side of your camera for two-handed shooting. With the addition of optional shoe mounts, you can also mount a wide range of accessories such as recorders, microphones, LED lights, and external monitors.

Versatile camera support system for DSLRs, point-and-shoots, action cameras, and compact camcorders
Allows for quick attachment of a wide range of accessories using optional Accessory Shoes
Composite thermoplastic with a custom polymer grip
Designed, engineered, and assembled in the USA

    Scorpion Universal Stabilizing Camera Handle is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Better than handheld, but not much. Finally had the opportunity to try this on a recent hiking trip in the Rockies. I had a wide angle lens on my 5DII. At first I thought the bumpy footage was due to the rough terrain, but even the footage I shot on pavement wasn't impressive. Out of several attempts with different techniques, I didn't get any useful footage. It's less jittery than holding the camera with your hands, but I was hoping for something much smoother than I got. Mounting and balancing the camera is easy because the handle is so large that you can make up for imperfect balance by holding it differently. The video samples on their website shows mostly video of something moving, which distracts you from the camera movement.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from You Get What you Pay For For a piece of camera equipment, the scorpion really isn't all that bad, but it's not 100% stable. I wish it was made of metal, but it's made of bendy plastic and the handle tends to bounce with my Canon 5D Mark II and 24-70mm lens during any running or aggressive camera movement. This is not a poor man's steadicam by any means, but it does give your camera a nice handle for low angle shots, and is much more stable than hand held shooting. The best application seems to be when using the scorpion with moving subjects while the camera is also moving, like shooting skateboarding. The movement will hide the fact the camera, and image, is bouncing due to the give in the plastic material.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Better Then I Originally Thought At first I wanted to make my own handle, but I stumbled upon this one. I figured why not give it a shot. For wide angle for fisheye use this handle is definitely worth the money. It allows you to move your wrist freely.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from scorpion stabilizer handle fantastic We use the handle to stabilize a camera and fisheye while riding on a skateboard filming another skateboarder. It does a fantastic job.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good. Solid to use and film with but if your cam is heavy and you hold right near the end it will shake a bit. so I found holding it more near the back was better. But it's good to have and I have been using while snowboarding so it's been put through the paces.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but not enough! Yes, It's a good product but for DSLR's you need to have the other parts like LCD monitor and connecting gears in order to be able to use this product

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too Light The Cam Caddie is too light for a Canon HF G10 camcorder. Movement from walking or running is still present in the video and it's only slightly better than hand held. Perhaps more weight would solve the problem. It does work well for ground level shots provided the cam caddie is fairly level.
