Briefly, the Quikpod Pro comes with a set of tiny tripod legs which convert the unit into a surprisingly useful tabletop tripod. The Quikpod also comes with a useful case and belt clip. It has a mirror like device that permits some attempt at composing your frame. It is a worthwhile unit.
The Xshot, however, has some advantages. First of all, the Xshot will hold a slightly heavier camera, up to 24 ounces as opposed to the Quikpod's 15. More importantly, the Xshot extends to 37", twice the length of the Quikpod. That extra distance has a great impact on how much of the background you capture in the shot, especially with the wide-angle lenses of many recent point 'n shoot cameras. The extra length also makes a big difference with cameras that have the equivalent of a 35mm lens. (The much more expensive Quickpod DSLR will handle cameras up to 8 pounds and extends to 53".)
The Xshot is made of telescoping tubes, which permit you to easily choose the amount of extension you want. The camera mount has a rubberized surface and a thumbwheel for tightening. The head itself has a substantial wing nut for tightening. I had trouble getting the unit absolutely tight, though the slight play left did not allow the camera to flop forward from the position I set it in.
The Xshot collapses to about 9" long. At that length, it lends itself handily to be used as a camera grip in the left hand, with the right being used for zoom and shutter controls. Extended out by one or two sections, the unit can also be used - if you are careful - as a chest pod, which could come in handy for longer exposures. But be careful: the tubing sections collapse easily.Read more ›
It turns out that there are two pieces on the head of this thing, the piece that connects to the extendable monopod handle and also exposes a screw grip to spin the attachment screw, and the piece of plastic that holds the screw into place while exposing a rubber base for the camera to hold to. This plastic plate thing is rather crappily joined and is loose with no way to tighten it. The whole thing would be fine if I wasn't moving around but I do move around, that's what a handheld monopod is for, duh. So there'd be no getting around the rocking.
I literally have to throw this away--it's too cheap to try to resell it or otherwise hassle with a return or somesuch, but too expensive not to note the loss here. This is so completely disappointing!
Without echoing many other reviews, the rubber piece under the screw got detached after 30sec (yep, literally the first time screwing in a camera).
All in all, pay some extra $$ and get yourself a better quality pole.
