Works just the way it's supposed to. The method of clamping on to the camera body is new to me and it works very well. Care must be excercised to not use too long a thumb screw. If your thumb screws are too long, shim them with washer(s). You only want about three and a half threads to engage the clamping mechanism nut.

I wasn't sure how this would properly hold the camera before I bought it, and was pleased to discover that it works very well. The adapter fits snugly, but not tightly, around the camera, and the insertion of the tripod screw mount presses up on a nub that causes the bottom rubber to tightly contact the camera. While I think the camera should have come with a tripod mount to begin with, I must admit that it works well, and is well constructed.

I've owned my Lytro since last spring - it is an amazing camera as I indicated in my review of that product. This tripod adapter works well: it slips over the body of the camera and is locked in place by the tripod mounting screw. In my opinion a tripod mount should have been built into the camera from the outset.

I see two problems with this:

1. It is not clear where on the camera it should be placed. My Lytro now has small scratches in the finish from this adapter - might not have happened if the adapter was placed on the rubber grip, but this would have been a tight fit (if it was even possible). No instruction sheet to suggest placement.

2. I am concerned about possibly damaging the internals of the camera when I tighten the tripod mounting screw. Again, some instructions - suggesting either where to place the adapter or assuring me that damage would not occur - would have been welcome.

Considering that this is the only way to use the Lytro with a tripod, it is hard not to rate it highly.

This is a must have if you wish to use your Lytro camera in a tripod or other accessory that uses the same tripod mount. The camera slides in easily. When you tighten the tripod screw the accessory tightens around the camera. nicely designed!

A lovely object with a purpose. In keeping with the chic and simple Lytro camera. And, by the way, it's aluminum - which doesn't show in the advertising photo. Very nice.

Bought one of these for my Lytro, wasn't disappointed. Solid build with a simple size make this an easy accy to carry in the bag with the camera.

This is a lovely piece of engineering. It fits the camera nicely, and maintains the classy look of all things Lytro.

Way loose. Soon as you unscrew it and try to store this camera with the adapter, it will fall off just as easily as the Lytro lens cap. It could have been made snug with a little more rubber on the interior. The description says "grey" but the picture looks closer to white. What arrived was a Gun Metal Grey much darker than pictured.

This is a great Tripod Adapter. It fits the Lytro camera perfectly. The rubber pad on the inside really help to hold the camera tight and didn't shake loose when carrying or setting up the equipment and shooting. Great price for something specifically designed for a hybrid camera and Amazon was about the only place I could find one.

A must if you're going to try to use a tripod with your Lytro. Simple, and a great tool for those of us with GoPros that use the pole extensions to capture selfies.....why not do them with your Lytro too.
