I purchased the Accu-Grip to use with my Canon Vixia HF S100 camcorder. There are a few things you should know about this handle and additionally how to simply customize it so it will work with your camera. A previous reviewer noted that about 1/2" behind the threaded screw mount is another, small sharp screw tip protruding up into the deck of the handle. This is indeed problematic in that it prevents the camera from sitting flush against the deck of the handle when attempting to tighten it down. Also, it's been mentioned that the threads do not line up properly with some cameras. I had the same situation and problems with the handle, however here are a couple tips that will solve the problems. There just aren't other items like this on the market, so it may be worth your while to do a simple customization of the handle. First, you'll need a simple metal file. It takes just a few minutes to carefully file down the sharp, protruding screw tip on the deck of the handle. If you do it carefully, you won't damage the rubber grip on the deck. Once filed down, that screw tip is no longer an issue. Second, I also found that at first attempts, the threads on the handle did not line up with the mounting threads on the camera. I finally found that if you hold the handle perpendicular to the camera as opposed to the proper parallel position, the threads line up fine. In this position, you can just make a half-turn to start the threading process, then turn the handle into its proper parallel alignment and the handle will tighten to the camera just fine. All in all, it works great. It was worth taking some time with it. I hope this is of some help to others.

This is the perfect grip for my Kodak Zi8 and works well for all my small cameras, but as soon as I step up to the DSLRs --- fogetaboutit.

I've seen a lot of complaints that there is a little, sharp screw coming out of the top as well (you can see it on Amazon's picture of the product). THIS HAS BEEN FIXED by Barska, and the one I got for Christmas has just the 1/4" screw coming out of the top. It fit perfectly fine on my Canon 7D (it is long enough and didn't strip any threading), and it is exactly what I was expecting. Great product for it's price, and I am perfectly satisfied!

So close.

When Amazon suggested this might be an item I'd be interested in, they were right! I figured I probably wouldn't use it often, but for the price, I couldn't resist. I figured it would be good for handheld home movies, at least, when I'm not getting paid to carry my tripod around.

Like another reviewer mentioned, there's no longer a little "spike" on the mounting surface to keep your camera from rotating...just a hole there. That's good, because who wants a spike sticking into their camera?

Yeah, it's plastic, it's hollow, and it's light. Toy-like? No. Would you really want this to be a heavy iron handle attached to your camera? It has a really nice plastic finish...the exact same finish as my Lumix GH1...which is the main camera I'll probably use it with. The rectangle spot on the back of the handle is a rubberized area, making it even more comfortable to hold.

I have average sized man hands, I guess, and I like the fit. Larger hands might have a problem with this, however.

But, they still didn't get it perfect. As others mentioned, the 1/4-20 threaded stud is too long for some cameras. It needs to be shortened by about two threads. It fits my Lumix GH1 and my Lumix ZS3, but not my Fujifilm W3 or my 35mm Olympus OMG SLR...or it's auto winder grip...the stud bottoms out in the mounts before getting tight.

Removing the existing foam rubber mounting surface and replacing it with a thicker piece of foam rubber would probably fix it, but aside from the fact I shouldn't HAVE to do this to a brand new product, and don't want it to look "hacked" if I don't do a good job of it. Putting a rubber or metal washer on it as a spacer would fall into the "hacked" category IMHO...I'm not doing that.

If they will make one with a shorter stud on it, I'd be happy to purchase another one!

Just received it, 1st thought, nice grip feel, slightly small for my large hands but comfortable.

I attached this Barska Accu grip to my Sony Action Cam's Sony AKA-LUI housing, the screw bottomed out but the cam was still not snug against the grip. The screw is too long. (my 1 star deduction, because I read this was a common issue) This can be resolved by filing the screw down, I may down the road... OR as I did, I found some rubber washers and stacked a couple beneath (1" Dia O.D. ,1/4" I.D.) and works perfectly. I do like the feel of the grip, can hold the camera much more firmly, and control the Record button with my thumb very easily.

The setup feels a little forward heavy because of the location of the 1/4-20 tripod hole being rearward on the cam housing.. but to me, this set up is a keeper. I Think so anyway.. still contemplating! Opposed to holding this slick feeling housing awkwardly, the handle adds much benefit! I am posting some pic's, not the best, cell ph pic's to give you an idea of the way it all looks together. It instantly reminded me of the old Bolex 8mm that was given to me years ago... I pulled it put to share with you.
