Will not work for purpose intended.
on March 25, 2014
I bought this to use with my GoPro Hero 3. This product would suggest that it can be used with the GoPro since the tripod mount for the GoPro is included which is a nice touch. However when fully extended the pole will flex even if you are completely static. To add to how unusable it is, the individual joints do not lock so they will rotate at the axis. All this happened with minimal movement in my study room while testing it. I can't imagine this would be useful on the ski slopes or during any type of activity that involves more than walking. The GoPro is obviously an action cam, so this pole will obviously not work. I was in a pinch for a snowboard trip next morning so I went to my hardware store and bought a PVC pipe for two bucks, added tennis grip tape, and attached my handlebar mount. This worked surprisingly well even though it I prob got a few weird looks. Whatever, I let my shredding do the talking.
However, it might work with a small point and shoot camera at a stand still.
I am returning this.
