Opteka OPHG-1 overview

  • 1Description

The Opteka HG-1 Heavy-Duty Grip Handle provides stable handle of a small camera and lets you comfortably get shots from most any angle.

It screws into the underside of a camera by a 1/4" screw and is best suited for small point-and-shoot cameras, small camcorders, and small DSLRs -- small because a heavy camera runs the chance of snapping off of the 1/4" screw upon sudden, unexpected movement. The Handle is the same kind that comes with Opteka's CXS-1 Video Rig and can be used as a second handle with the rig for dual-handle operation.

    Opteka OPHG-1 reviews

    HG-1 Heavy-Duty Grip Handle is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased This is a beautifully made grip, with a bit of weight to it and a nice dense foam rubber grip. I would say my hands are on the large size but my fingures do not quite touch the pad of my thumb when holding this grip handle. I use it to provide additional support for a Nikon 300mm f4 lens. I added a quick release grip that matches that on the camera body (Nikon D750) and also on the lens. I attach this grip handle to the lens and am amazed how much steadier I can hold the camera with this unit attached. I can easily take pictures at 1/4 sec.with the addition of the lens' image stabilization. By adding this grip to the lens I also have less to worry about in terms of moving the lens focus, in error, while shooting. For the price you don't need to think too long.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great grip! Very comfortable and cool looking. I had to ask a couple of people at B&H until I was led to this product but it is an excellent little grip. One of the reasons I keep going back to B&H is you get solid suggestions and often different ones but they seem to really care that you get what you want and need. This grip is small and compact but very sturdy. I use it for a pro-sumer camcorder but it could support a larger, say mid-sized, camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality! This is a strong and robust grip handle and the red anodizing adds that bling factor. I got this as a additional grip for my Opteka shoulder mount and it works great. It matches the grip it came with perfectly.
