I create knitting video tutorials and the horizontal camera mount is exactly what I needed so I don't have to straddle my tripod while I film. Now my tripod is to the side, out of the way, with my camera at eye level and there's nothing between me and my knitting. This set-up is so much easier to manage.
Great tool to attach to an existing tripod, this will give you a better position for your photo shoot. My camera is a full frame and weighs 1lb 13oz. I have to use a weight at the end of the bar, to counter balance the camera, which is fine. I had to place a locking washer at the camera mount screw end. While shifting the angle of my camera position to the side, I noticed it would loosen itself from the screw mount. Still this product is a useful tool to get those useful shots.
Just what we needed
It was exactly what I needed for my filming and it works great!
