To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I don't think this thing is worth the high price they charge you for it, but it gets the job done! The biggest complaint I have is that the screw to tighten the clamp gets so close to the camera cage it is attaching to that it can't turn a full 360 degrees. So, it's best to get it mostly tightened so that the screw is in a position where it only has to turn a quarter to half a turn at most to get it tighter.
Love anything smallrig. Highly impressed with this handle. I would recommend going with the rail system handle for another 30 bucks though. It’s just easier to set up and tear down but if taking an extra minute to screw the handle in to your cage doesn’t bother you then go for it The grip is super nice. The wood feels so good in the hand. Honestly, the best company I’ve bought from in a long while. Anything small rig is worth the investment.
On a budget I tend to cheap out and buy lesser known brands and then regret it. I bought a pair of CAMVATE handles that broke on me within a week. I spend dayssss researching trying to find a balance of price/quality. Don't cheap out. Go Smallrig their stuff works and is sturdy. These handles are great they feel great, the included allen keys are perfect to have on the go to adjust or remove, and the cold shoe mounts open up a great options of possibilities.
