I love this product, but my eyes are wide-open about what it will and won't do. And one thing it only kinda' actually does is "stabilize" the phone when it's being used for videos. Mostly all it does -- but this is important -- is let you hold the phone in a much, much more comfortable manner, and that, alone, helps stop the shaking. Add to that the phone's built-in electronic "anti-shake" technology (if, in fact, the phone has that), and, honestly, the quality of the videos really and truly does improve (in terms of shakiness) considerably.

However, an anti-shake holder of this type, in order to really and truly steady things, must utilize both a gimbal as the pivoting technology, and then a counterbalance on a hanging/swinging arm of some kind. The biggest, oldest and most famous maker of such devices is "Steadicam"...

...but its stuff is usually expensive (though the prices of its stuff for small cameras, and smartphones, has come down lately.

There's a Czech company called "Lensee" that makes some affordable ones.

Like it or not, TRUE video anti-shake cannot be achieved without a gimbal and counterbalance. Period. I've written to Woxom and suggested that its magnificent little "Slingshot" should come in an optional more expensive version with gimbal and counterbalance. They thanked me for the suggestion, but I have no idea if they'll actually do it. Even if they don't, though, this little Slingshot is pretty cool. It definitely helps...

If you are buying this to get rid of any shaking during video recording, then do not buy this, and save your money.
This is just a phone handle/tripod, so if your hand is shaking or you are walking, it still shakes, as there is no stabilization mechanism in the unit.

But... if you want a nicely designed sleek little tripod, or a desktop phone holder, then its well worth the money.
The actual cradle that holds your phone is also detachable, so you can attach it to a real tripod or a real video stabilizer.
The tripod is really lightweight plastic resin, but feels solid and well built.

If this product would of been released 2 years ago, then I think it would be a lot better, as there are now a couple of different mobile phone tripod solutions out there already.

The best part is the removable universal cradle that holds your phone, but calling this a "Video Stabilizer" is misleading, because its not.

I just got this product, but I'm quite happy with it so far. It fits my Samsung Galaxy S3 with the case on, and definitely helps to stabilize it when taking videos. I'm also happy to have finally found something that will allow me to attach the phone to my tripod.

The Womox Slingshot is a gem. I use it with the rather large Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and it just plain great. The Note 2 fits comfortably and, more importantly, snugly in the frame. Holding it at arms length for video or still photography adds stability. And added benefit is doing self-portraits. Just hold the Slingshot at arm's length. No contortions, no fear of having the phone slip out of your hands.

The tripod attachment works reasonably well. I would suggest using the self-timer when taking pictures with it to give the cell phone time to stop shaking: the two pull-out tripod legs are springy and do introduce shake. I had no stability issues when using the tripod and the Note 2 is a comparatively heavy device.

The gimbal mount is snug now, as the Slingshot is brand new and i question how long it will stay that way.

The cell phone holder tray screws off and may be used on a regular tripod.

I also put a Motorola Photon 4G in the frame and that was held snugly as well.

I'm probably going to buy another one of these to keep with my little tablet travel kit, just so it is handy.

For the price, I think this is the best solution for cell phone photography and videography I've found so far. Definitely cool gadget.
