This is really a very useful mount holder! Its small, but big and strong enough to use with my EOS 40D with the heavy 24-105 L series mounted on it. I've been using it with the EOS, LUMIX TZ7 and Canon 580EX flash. With Lumix I've made some videos driving with the holder inside and outside the car, and it behaves great! Its quite smooth (depending of course, on road types).
The only con I can think of, is the tension of round head screw (for camera angle). You have to tight it very well or use some rubber in the housing to increase traction. I use it with the 40D with nothing on it, just had to tight it very well (take a look at the above picks). Decent quality plastic.
I would like to see some angle head improvement.
Its made of plastic, otherwise it costs much more. Its durable enough for its purpose and price. Since the first one, I bough two more!! If you use remote flash or like to explore different angles and framing, go for it!!
