5.0 out of 5 stars Handheld camera holder with long reach August 27, 2009
Style Name:Standard Camera Mount|Verified Purchase
Xshot 2.0 competes for the space occupied by Quikpod. Both units merit consideration.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Xshot makes self-portrait taking a cinch! December 28, 2007
Style Name:Standard Camera Mount
My fiancee and I travel every other month to places far and near. Very often, we find ourselves in front of the Trevi Fountain, Haleakala summit, or Eiffel Tower wondering, "Who should we ask to take our picture?". The XShot makes self picture taking so easy, but be warned, you will attract attention. I can't begin to count how many times I've heard whispers of, "Ask her where she got it" or "That is so cool!" It is so simple to learn, you don't need an instruction manual. It takes great pictures and works with any camera that has the tripod screw insert below. The only drawback I can think of is its inability to take vertical pictures, unless I haven't figured out how to do that yet. I love my XShot and will take it with me on every trip. 5 STARS!

After my QuikPod broke in a week due to cheap plastic parts, I bought this. It is MUCH better. Twice as long. Very sturdy. Great for video too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for snowboarding June 6, 2011
By krolf
Style Name:Standard Camera Mount|Verified Purchase
During our snowboarding trips, my friends and I often like to shoot video using a GoPro HD Hero. Unfortunately, we couldn't always get a stable shot (super shaky, bad angle, etc.). That's now a problem of the past, as the XShot suits all of my needs and then some. It contracts and expands with ease, and has a solid construction to sustain those brutal falls that tend to happen from time to time (unlike many other models that are made from cheap plastic). I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mount head jiggles loose, unusable August 29, 2011
Style Name:Standard Camera Mount|Verified Purchase
I was trying to get into vlogging. I really liked this thing when I pulled it from its packaging, and was very impressed by its quality and its build. But then I mounted my camera. I have a Sony NEX-5 with a "pancake" lens--a bit on the heavy side but nothing a good monopod shouldn't be able to handle. It mounted "fine" and everything worked "fine", but then when I hit "Record" on the camera I noticed it wouldn't hold still, the whole camera wobbled back and forth on the mount. It literally rocked back and forth as I held it out.

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for traveling January 18, 2009
By G. Ko
Style Name:Standard Camera Mount|Verified Purchase
I took this on a 2 week trip down to Argentina and it worked great. For situations where you don't have time to setup a tripod or if there's nobody else around to take a photo of yourself for you, the XShot comes in very handy. It collapses to a manageable length and is light enough to throw in your backpack. I wouldn't put any camera heavier than 8-10 ounces on this, but it should have no problem handling a compact point & shoot camera.
I find with the 28mm (35m equivalent) lens on the Canon SD870, I do not have to extend the arm to its full length. Holding it steady gets harder the longer it is extended anyway. It might take a couple of shots to learn how to get the right angle for your shot, but with some practice, it'll be hard to tell that your pictures were taken with the XShot.

Works great. Easy to use. Having the camera on the extender does help stabilize your shots in addition to moving camera away for wider angles.
