Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Camera

Camera:
"Positives: Really small and compact, US quarter coin fits screwdriver slot great., Best use is GoPro mount or one of the cell phone holders, tension on ball is Fixed so screwdriver slot is only for holding ball mount steady so you can screw camera mount into tripod, Tension on ball is just right for GoPro or Phone (Anything much heavier needs to be balanced or it will likely not stay in position)Negatives: Only for small cameras or ones that are not front heavy ( the little ball will not hold much front loading without slipping, If screwed into a camera base it needs a home made plastic washer made out of plastic drink bottle to keep from marring camera base since the material is soft metalConclusion: Small enough to take anywhere and perfect for cellphone mount or GoPro mount."

_
"Another thing--when this is attached, you can't set the camera down on anything, you would have to place the camera on it's front or back, not a good idea."
_
"Works really great for a point & shoot camera."
_
"Very convenient for compacts...Well made and seems to hold and adjust camera angles quite well."
_
"If I were able to attach a camera to it, my photos would all have a 20 degree shift to them."

"Such a clever design."

"The good:- Foldable design makes it very pocketable."
