Just before I shopped for this stabilizer, I was hesitant initially, after reading the evaluations...Now, I believe it is actually cash well-spent. Light, sturdy, but definitely not for pounding tent stakes, and rigid! More than enough for its stated purposes. It must be worth for more than $23.39.

Attached is my video review, funny thing is I had to take my Stedi-Stock off the camera to show it to you. PROS: Shape is really quick to acquire to your shoulder to possess two stabile points and make it straightforward to turn and move up and down. Pretty light weight, saw some reviews did not think it was heavy sufficient or inexpensive it really is extremely strong. Universal screw goes into any variety of camera, video, spotting scope, range finder, or massive binocular.
One minor glitch...the deal with mounting screw didn't protrude far sufficient to engage my camera tripod mount threads. It appeared the mounting bolt head was slightly large for the hole within the handle, but some disassembly, peering intently in the challenge, judicious work having a carving knife to take away the interior ridges, and gentle tapping having a rubber hammer to completely seat the head, (Be certain the bolt head is appropriately aligned using the hex inside the casting hole.)and Voila! Did I mention, I LIKE it? Fantastic for Airshows, race track and wildlife, not to mention the Zoo, grandkids, puppy...the list goes on.
I can rest my arms on the window frame, and hold the camera (Canon 40D) steady with the Stedi-Stock. It really is quite rapid when shooting off hand within the field. On the other hand, applying the Stedi-Stock off hand, I'm not as steady as using a monopod, but the monopod is additional cumbersome. The Stedi-Stock is extremely light, and simple to pack. Wish my Canon monopod head screw was longer so it would fit by way of the Stedi-Stock, and into my camera. This would provide a genuinely quick, and steady setup. While I don't really require it, the Stedi-Stock is pretty helpful in shooting with my camcorder.
