The original professional grade stabilizing action grip that allows you to hold your camera down low when filming skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding, auto racing, motocross, BMX/FMX and even when boating. Besides just facilitating a novel filming perspective, the X-Grip will steady your shot as well. It can be used with most SLR cameras or camcorders (with max height of 4.5") that feature a 1/4"-20 tripod mount. The 1/4"-20 screw on the bracket is adjustable, to better accommodate cameras of different configurations.It adds adds an extra level of convenience and control to your video production by providing a comfortable top handgrip--and a stable base--to your camcorder or DSLR. Besides just facilitating a novel filming perspective, the X-Grip will steady your shot as well. So when you're ready to pump up a scene's action quotient, shooting from a skateboard, rollerblades or even a bike becomes far less challenging. A hot shoe adapter on the front of the handle allows for convenient mic or light placement, so that even quiet, handheld dialogue scenes will benefit from using Opteka's X-Grip. As an added bonus, the X-Grip is equipped with a removable accessory shoe mount on the top, which can hold your video light, camera flash or external microphone. If you plan to capture action sports from any angle, especially low angles, the X-Grip is a must have.

The Scorpion is made of metal, the Opteka is thick plastic. For stability and longevity, Advantage: Scorpion
The Scorpion has no shoe accessory for mounting a mic or light, that’ll cost you an extra $18. The shoe accessory can be mounted anywhere on the handle and the shoe plate is adjustable but you gotta use a hex wrench to do it which takes much longer. The Opteka has an included shoe accessory which cannot be moved but the shoe plate is adjustable with the twist of a knob. Advantage: Opteka (Quick side note: the hex wrench was not included with the accessory kit I bought)
The Opteka is tripod-mountable with an included threaded knob. The Scorpion is tripod-mountable after you purchase the cheese plate for about $48. Advantage: Opteka
If you need to mount more than one accessory (eg, light and a mic), you can do that with the Scorpion after you purchase the accessory wing and another shoe accessory or flashner, or you can get the 3-piece kit for another $50. I’ve seen no attachments you can purchase for the Opteka. Advantage: Scorpion, after spending more money. (Quick side note: the accessory wing I ordered was missing a critical screw so it could not be mounted, thus it was essentially useless.)
Color, the Scorpion is black, Opteka comes in a variety of cool colors. Advantage: Opteka
Price (as of this writing): Opteka-$19.95 Scorpion-$63.95 Advantage: Opteka
Overall, if you want a stable handle and room for one accessory, the Opteka is by far the better value. I'm docking it one star for its inability to add additional accessory shoes. If you want to add multiple accessories you gotta go with the Scorpion but its going to cost you. In my humble opinion, Cam Caddie charges WAY too much for their products.
I've used this with a mirror-less, a DSLR and my iPhone, it worked perfect for all of them. There is no magic bullet, you have to use best practice to get the smooth "flight" shot you want, and you'll need to practice, but this device is spot on for it.
highly adjustable camera location
Feet will let you set this down on any levelish surface
takes some practice, there is no mechanical or electronic balance to help smooth things out, this is all up to you.
Still this is not a bad review. The product is very sturdy in my opinion. It's very easy to attach my small camera to it and feels very nice in my hand.
