The Cam Caddie Scorpion is a versatile camera handle and stabilizer designed to give modern DSLRs and point & shoot cameras the same feel as a traditional video camcorder.

The Cam Caddie Scorpion is the number one choice among professional skateboard videographers and is a top choice for today's ultra mobile, budget-conscious filmmakers. The Cam Caddie Scorpion is compatible with nearly all consumer level video recording devices and DSLRs. Vertical clearance: 5 & 3/4 Inches of clearance from the mounting plate to the bottom of the handle. Horizontal clearance: 7 & 1/2 Inches from the back of the handle to the front.

I do a lot of home video recording of my 2 year old daughter. I realized running after her and circling around to get a nice shot was causing a lot of shakes in the video which is pretty annoying once you watch your clips on your computer. So I started looking for a cheap and easy to use camera stabilizer but all the stuff I was finding were expensive and/or really big and odd in shape. I found a Cam Caddie review on someone's blog which was raving this little tool so I ordered one.

After using Cam Caddie for a few hours, I find it easy to use but it doesn't do an excellent job of stabilizing the camera. It's been more comfortable recording my daughter run around the house with my camera attached to Cam Caddie because it allows you to handle and rotate the camera much much easily. In that sense I love Cam Caddie. When it came to stabilizing the camera, I could still see my hand shakes in the video clips but it's not as bad as before. I think Cam Caddie is too light to be able to provide good stabilization. It really feels like it needs to have some weight discs attached to the bottom. I'm planning to find a way to do this which I think will improve camera stabilization.

Installation was pretty easy; you place your camcorder as shown in product images here and then attach the camcorder to Cam Caddie using the provided screw. The installation took me maybe 30 secs or less.

I think I read this in another review and I agree that depending on your brand/mode of camcorder, Cam Caddie's base will block your battery if you need to remove it to charge or replace it with another one. For me this is not a big issue really because I can always unscrew the whole thing in seconds.

I've always wanted a handle like this for filming skateboarding with my friends, I have a regular consumer 3ccd video camera and all the serious filmers use the prosumer cameras with handles on them, it really does allow you to be a lot more stable than holding the video camera with your hand wrapped around it. I bought this one at a skate shop for like 70 bucks, and I see i got ripped off by that skate shop.

But regardless, it has definitely made it easier for filming. The design is pretty decent, sometimes the screw that hold the camera in place is tough to put on but it is held very well, the camera doesn't budge, I can film with the little side screen open. Only thing is with my camcorder the battery release is on the underside and the battery pulls down so I can't switch batteries without unscrewing the camera from the caddie. Overall a great product I think.

This is not made for DSLRs....the height between the base and handle is too short. Because of this, you cant add a battery grip or a follow focus to your DSLR. I use a Canon 7D and Im disappointed. This is made more for the smaller camcorders. My main gripe is I cant add a follow focus. Its not easy to keep the camera steady while turning the focus ring with your hand compared to a follow focus. There are better products out there.

I use the cam caddie for my dslr to film skateboarding. I had the opteka x grip before and I didnt like how it wasnt very stable, and how the footage was always shaky, it had cheap plastic and foam that gets gross when your hands sweat. The Cam Caddie is the opposite, its super durable, very stable (even more stable with the lock out kit), and a great design with other features such as the accessory shoes you can get to attach lights, mics, etc. For around the same price as the x grip, this is definitely your best choice. The customer service is great as well. I couldnt undo the screw on 2 of my accessory shoes and ended up stripping the allen screws. I contacted them immediately and let them know, they responded back to my email within the hour and had already shipped out 2 more to me, and I didnt even have to pay! (I later found out I stripped them because I was tightening it, not loosening it haha). The new accessory shoes got to my house 2 days after I had emailed them. Ive never had customer service as great as that. 5 stars for this one. I totally reccommend a cam caddie for anyone with anytype of camera that wants to film action sports, or if you just want a good stabilizer, choose cam caddie. I guarantee you will be happy with this purchase.

The product itself is very durable for the price compared to the Opteka X-Grip. At first I thought the handle was completely made of hard plastic, but it turns out the part where you hold the Cam Caddie has a rubbery material very good and comfortable for holding. It's also very good with keeping attachments in place.

Stability: If you are using a DSLR (I use the Canon T3i), you're going to need to buy more accessories besides the Cam Caddie Scorpion itself. It's going to be very shaky if held by one hand, and still a little bit weird when you hold it with two. If you're going to buy this for a DSLR, buy the Cold Shoe Attachment too (it's the green thing. But if you're using any other light weight video cameras, this should do pretty fine.

I found myself filming more stable footage without the Cam Caddie than with the Cam Caddie.

If you're using this for skateboarding, you're going to have to buy the Cold Shoe Attachment.
If you really need a handle, this is the product to buy (and the attachments of course.)
This is a great entry-level handle for new camera users. A satisfactory product.

I'm giving this 4 stars because it requires you to buy the Cold Shoe Attachment to improve the stability for DSLRs.
