Pros:
Hmm... Hmm... It looks nice! Yes! it's nice and useless one. It doesn't fail at camera weight <200gr only!
Cons:
I tried Canon 50d + Canon 10-22 lens =LEG HOLD FAIL (1.2KG) (self-bends) I tried 50D without lens (so center balance?) = LEG HOLD FAIL (0,85KG) (self-bends) I tried Olympus E-420 KIT (0.65KG) = LEG HOLD FAIL (self-bends) I tried Olympus E-420 withoit lens (0.43KG) = LEG HOLD FAIL (self-bends)
Other:
This must support at 800-1000gr, but actually this is really <250gr (in car <150 in case of car shaking)
Bottomline:
Do no buy this for ANY dslr - you'll be disappointed. Only if you need this for webcam or pocket (<200gr or better <150gr) camera you'll be satisefied. But it is TOO big itself for such cameras!
