The extender feels very sturdy and well made.
Jan B
The first time I tried to use the XShot, the plastic end where the camera attaches broke off from the extender.
James F West
Great for times you want to be in the picture and nobody around to take your shot for you.

I purchased this product for my GoPro Hero2. Keep in mind, if you're looking to do the same, do not forget to buy the GoPro tripod attachement! I don't believe any of the GoPro packages come with the tripod attachment, but this product requires that ten dollar attachement. You don't want to be in a remote location away from retailers when you realize this. Anyway, this product was an excellent investment for a vacation I had that involved a lot of hiking and snorkeling. It has a sturdy build quality that holds up strong both in and out of the water. With this extender, you can get some really great footage that you couldn't otherwise get. For example, those of us not fortunate enough to a film crew on our adventures can benefit greatly from this. I shot hours of video with the extender fully extended and pointed towards myself and companions during dives and hikes. Seems silly to point the camera at yourself for so long but it was well worth it! Everyone I showed the vacation videos to kept asking who was capturing the video of us?! The captured video literally looked like someone was just a few feet ahead of me filming my every movement. Keep in mind, you'll still have to angle the GoPro just right at the end of the extender and hold the extender's base inconspicuously. However, it's a small price to pay for the prospect of having film crew type footage.

My only complain is that the strap at the very end just loops around your wrist loosely. If I could just tighten the strap around my wrist, I wouldn't be so paranoid about dropping the camera/extender, especially in open ocean water. I still regret not getting footage of Manta Ray's swimming alongside me in the Pacific, but with a $350 video camera at the very end, 6 hours of previously recorded footage, and 100+ft of ocean water below, I didn't want to take the chance. A strap that tightened securely around your wrist not only makes sense but is the one thing keeping this product from being 5 stars.

I use it on my snowboarding and diving trips with a GoPro mounted at the tip. The stick seems very durable and it gets the job done. However, if you retract it too hard (I got mad and did that) it fell apart and I had to buy a replacement. However, overall this is a great product. With a GoPro attached to it you will have to tighten the knob quite often, but it's no big deal - you can retrofit a diffrent screw (which is what I did) and now it's really good stick.

I took this thing out of the packaging, attached the GoPro to the tripod Mount and then attached it to the xShot 2.0. It worked as I expected and seems to be durable and easy to use. The shots you get with it are amazing on the gopro. This will help huge for filming over large crowds and getting totally awesome camera angles in general.

I gave it 4 stars instead of five because it isnt as solid as I would like it to be. It has a small amount of play in the grooves that telescope out. Hence, the camera can teater right or left a small amount. Another reason for the four stars is that the the adjustment knob on the pivot part is small and you have to tighten it rather tight to make the top not pivot. The small dial to tighten the screw into the tripod could have also been designed easer to tighten.

Overall, it starts off small, telescopes really far out for an amazing view with a gopro hero 3 camera. It is plenty rigid to support the weight, but could be a little more rigid and easier to tighten if you are using a heavier camera.

I just want to be clear that the rotational play in the telescoping rod is minimal (maybe 1/16th to 1/8th of an inch) and although the pivotal tightening knob and the small dial to tighen the screw into the tripod could be better, they are able to be tightened for secure use with the go pro camera.

I used this on a recent trip for my GoPro and couldn't have been more happy with the results. I much prefer to keep the camera attached to this 95% of the time rather than holding the camera by itself. The XShot not only adds stability to your pictures and video, but it's more secure. I felt safe walking the streets of Nicaragua & Costa Rica knowing that my camera was securely attached and even has a wrist strap.

The extension feature on this is what really shined for me. While everyone else on my jungle river cruise was trying to snap pictures away of a crocodile from a distance, there I was able to position my camera close to the water to get video of it without rising losing a hand!

Hate how far back most safety railings are placed from cliffs? No bother, just reach your arm out with your camera extended for some truly unique pictures that others can't get.

Another feature I found useful was how the head swivels. That let me take pictures in landscape facing forward out of the window of a moving car instead of only getting pictures in portrait.

Finally, while I didn't use it, I like the added screw on the bottom of this. It allows you to attach this to a tripod or anything else that you might find useful.

Others have written how to use this to get yourself in the picture. I also use it to take photos from a higher perspective, such as above the heads of a crowd of people standing in front of me. It's easy; just set the angle so that the camera points properly; then you can hold it up 3 feet, plus the length of your arm, above yourself.

You can use the self-timer for every shot, but then you have to re-press the shutter button every time and wait for a 10 second delay. I have an electronic cable release, which is even better because I can just keep shooting. I plug the connector into my camera, wind the release cable a few turns around the XShot wand, and then hold the release button in my other hand. This works for getting yourself in the picture, too. If your camera accepts a cable release, I recommend you get one to use this way.

The XShot also has a 1/4 x 20 threaded socket at the end of the handle, so you can also mount it on a tripod for extra high shots.
