I needed a mount to film overhead and this is working wonderfully for my need.

You just need to have a sturdy tripod to put it on and have a counter weight for the other end of your camera.

It does require that you use a counter weight if you are going to mount say a DSLR camera like I am (Nikon d3200), but will hold a simple point and shoot with no need for a counter weight.

I use it with a Dolica tripod and it works great.

The is a pole that allows you to hang your camera for overhead shots.. it would have been nice to have a proper weight balance on the opposite side to hold a counterweight instead of a bottle of water...In any case it seems to work fine.. .

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I recommend this camera mount/clamp based on manufacturer ratings. Let's go over the reasons why buying this camera mount/clamp now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. Manufacturer has very positive reviews on all their products!

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. As you see in my manufacturer report below, ALZO Digital (ALZO digital) has very positive reviews for their products. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, this is likely a safe bet.

2. This camera mount/clamp has positive reviews on the internet

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This camera mount/clamp has positivereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this camera mount/clamp more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See More Reviews on AmazonSee More Reviews on Amazon

3. The price might go up, so buy now if you need this!

image/svg+xml Highest Price Lowest Price $57.70 $44.41

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. This product became unavailable to purchase, so it's hard to tell. However, the last price change observed between May 8, 2020 and May 13, 2020 was a 0.00% price increase. Since this product is currently unavailable, you might want to check out the list of similar products I gathered in the similar products section!

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this camera mount/clamp was $57.70, and the lowest price point was $44.41. The current price isn't close to either the highest or the lowest price point, so it's a fairly reasonable time to make this purchase.

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. This product is currently unavailable so I can't really endorse its availability, sadly. If you plan to repeatly purchase this item, I would suggest looking for a similar product or a seller who has this product with better availability! In addition, I've seen a small amount of price movement with this product. From what I've seen, the price is likely to move up or down by an average of 2.11% at a time.

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? I know it's currently unavailable, but if this becomes available a week later, based on past price points, I expect the price to be $52.71 a week from now. It might be best to purchase as soon as possible before the price becomes too high.

4. ALZO digital is one of the best selling camera mount/clamp brand

ALZO digital is one of the best selling brands among other camera mount/clamp brands. But I couldn't find any YouTube videos, Reddit posts, or news articles that directly mention this product, but this can be just me not looking hard enough. Will update this when I have more info!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

5. There are other options you might want to check out

image/svg+xml ALZO digital Other similar brands: DJI iSaddle Kupton SMALLRIG

I found 8 brands that have similar products like this one: DJI, iSaddle, Kupton, SMALLRIG, Fotasy, Joby, Lunies, and Peak Design. 'If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you might want to look at a similar product from Fotasy. If you're looking for a camera mount/clamp with best reviews, a product from DJI gets the best score on the internet. If your primary concern is whether the product is popular and well known, a similar product from Kupton I linked below is a better option. I linked all the similar products in the similar products section so please check them out! Or you can check other similar products on Amazon, too.
