I read LOADS of product reviews before getting this one and I'm glad I chose it! The pistol grip was comfortable to use and easy to put on and take off. I recommend it for any photographer. Especially those who have to shoot under the lights of a night sports game. It helped to achieve more consistency for me.
I shoot winter time lady soccer. Unfortunately, there's not a bazillion people watching the game, so there is plenty of room on the track outside of the field to keep up with the game (running from end to end at times). I am also able to get a reprieve periodically by holding my camera upside down on my side solely by the grip for short durations. It's lightweight and strong enough to support about 7 lbs of camera and lens!
I haven't had the opportunity to try it out for day time shooting, but I am certain that it will make a great addition there as well.
I also tried it with my Olympus XZ-1 (point and shoot) and it is a BIG improvement specially because that kind of cameras are so small that is not easy to hold in a stable way when sooting video.
I would give 4.5 stars instead of 5 just because cosmetic reasons. Some material is peeling off the platform edge and the logo decals fell off as soon as I took it out of the package but actually I like it more without it. Non of that affects the performace at all.
I definitely recommend it.
On great advice from someone on amazon.com, I combined this pistol grip with a Manfrotto 323 RC2 Rapid Connect Adapter, and had myself a great little setup. Only problem - not inherent to the product itself - it almost looks too slick, and I think my setup was intimidating-looking to the folks I was trying to sort of shoot without being too conspicuous. So - I guess on balance that's something to consider - this doesn't help you and your camera blend into the woodwork, if that's part of your goal.
Then I decided to get this pistol grip device and keep it permanently attached to the bottom of my GH4. The neat thing is the length of this must only be around 4+ inches or so, therefore it fit perfectly in small camera back attached to the camera. I simply put the camera in upside down and had the grip pointed up to be able to easily grab the camera via the rig every time I wanted to use the camera (whether for photos or videos). I have to say that this device makes the use of a camera with lenses the easiest of all.......and the overall camera bags weight is the lightest. When you are talking even one pound of extra weight it makes a difference lugging the gear around after an hour or so. In terms of stability of video = I think this improves it by at least 50% and maybe even 2/3rds. So I think the Zacuto is a little bit better but not by much and then it comes down to true ease of use which to me is the ability to see something I want to video and be able to grab the camera and 3 seconds later be taking a video. This device allows you to do that. When you couple this with iMovie or any other software program that comes with a simple one click post production video stabilization, your travel and other videos will look pretty darn good.......no they will not be perfect and ready for the nightly news broadcast but for amateurs, who cares. Please don't take that last statement to mean the videos are not good because the GH4 is 4K and some of those videos are simply stunning.
My issue is still that I am one of those people that want my cake and eat it too. This pistol grip brings me as close to a one stop shop solution as possible but one day I may still purchase an all in one solution = maybe something like the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 which offers an all in one with 4K video which sounds like it is more then good enough for amateurs........or maybe I will wait this out another year or so because it appears that 4K video all in ones are just coming to the market now and I believe there will be several options by the end of the year.
What do I do for my upcoming summer travel trips to the Pacific Northwest? Probably stick with the GH4 and this pistol grip for now.
I'll update this review if anything else comes up.
