My advice is not to man-handle it and be careful with it. It should last a while if you use it in this way. If it was any heavier built, you would be wobbling trying to hold it while waiting for the camera to snap the picture.
- All started by the pictures that are diferent from what is delivered, in the picture it shows the back metal with the strap and the name on the metal, the delivered has black plastic with tripod screw hole and the name printed on the rubber handle.
- The item itself feels very different from the exact same version I had from 2 years ago, it feels much more fragile on handling and opening and on top of that it arrived already damaged, the metal is peeling on several parts of the pole.
- Then Amazon charged:
Item Subtotal: $19.25
Shipping & Handling: $16.48
Import Fees Deposit: $8.22
Shipment Total: $43.95
In the notes it stated that the import fees were only a deposit that could be returned in case of paying less customs fees on arrival, so my question is, since I have been informed by customs that any item below 58$ (42€), does not pay anything, when will amazon return this deposit?
Really loved this Camera extender, now I just like it a lot less unfortunately, since great items are always hard to find, please keep the quality standards guys, you don't have many competitors but that can change..
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.
Overall, the Xshot is a nice unit and a strong competitor to the Quickpod Pro. The Quikpod has more features and more secure extending tubes. The Xshot, however, offers longer reach. Both serve the purpose of allowing you to include yourself in your pictures on your terms, rather than trusting to the mercy of strangers.
