Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Camera

Camera:
"I find it hard to hold the camera and focus at the same time."
_
"My camera is on the small side and in the cold with bulky gloves on it was hard to hold the camera steady, focus and press the shutter button."
_
"I no longer have to awkwardly hold my phone camera in an uncomfortable position."
_
"The wide top gives a stable platform for a camera lots of other handle grips are narrow at the top, which creates a potential weak point when mounted to a camera."
_
"Honestly quite disappointed as it is wobbly no matter how it is tightened to my cameras."
_
"I have a blackmagic pocket cinema camera its an amazing and expensive camera and im not going to trust a pice of junk on a 1200 dollar camera but i 100% trust this and it is unbelievable steady it is amazing i also use it on my t3i and it works great i would totally buy it again u guys should !"
_
"Best friend of Sony Alpha 6000 mirrorless camera for panoramic photo and video with a relative short lens (like 35mm - 85 mm)."
_
"Affords wonderful stability for a camera without a viewfinder which unfortunately is the norm."
_
"Fits the Panasonic FZ200 nicely and I think it will help me steady the camera for handheld video and stills."
_
"I next purchased and tried the Zacuto Enforcer because it seemed to be the lightest weight and easiest to use of the body style camera rigs."
_
"The neat thing is the length of this must only be around 4+ inches or so, therefore it fit perfectly in small camera back attached to the camera."

Lens

Lens:

_
"For WALKING SHOTS, I recommend only using a wide lens (50mm or wider) that's stopped down for deep focus."

Size

Size:
"My camera is on the small side and in the cold with bulky gloves on it was hard to hold the camera steady, focus and press the shutter button."
_
"I also tried it with my Olympus XZ-1 (point and shoot) and it is a BIG improvement specially because that kind of cameras are so small that is not easy to hold in a stable way when sooting video."
_
"The neat thing is the length of this must only be around 4+ inches or so, therefore it fit perfectly in small camera back attached to the camera."
_
"Great attachment for small cameras and camcorders."
_
"The grip is a nice size, has a pleasant (slightly rubberized) texture, and feels good in the hand it's light, but doesn't feel poorly-constructed."
_
"excellent for video cameras that are small but still need to be held in a comfortable position."
_
"This is a very good grip, comfortable rubber, perfect size fits my hand's size perfectly, very light weight and portable."

Video

Video:
"Please don't take that last statement to mean the videos are not good because the GH4 is 4K and some of those videos are simply stunning."
_
"I also tried it with my Olympus XZ-1 (point and shoot) and it is a BIG improvement specially because that kind of cameras are so small that is not easy to hold in a stable way when sooting video."
_
"Well built, used on a dslr, pov video cameras and a Breastgrip."
_
"For the price this thing works great to stabilize my iPhone videos, if I had some more money to spend on a proper gimbal stabilizer I would but for now this is a great solution paired with the RetiCAM."
_
"I would highly recommend this to anyone who ever needs to take video--it's always good to have it in your arsenal ;)"
_
"So I think the Zacuto is a little bit better but not by much and then it comes down to true ease of use which to me is the ability to see something I want to video and be able to grab the camera and 3 seconds later be taking a video."
_
"When you couple this with iMovie or any other software program that comes with a simple one click post production video stabilization, your travel and other videos will look pretty darn good.......no they will not be perfect and ready for the nightly news broadcast but for amateurs, who cares."
