Just finished setting up my new ProGrip. Very happy with this purchase. Setup went well. Instructions easy to follow. Took a video and a few pictures. Impressed with the user friendly feel and how natural working with the ProGrip felt. Thank you for this great product. Looking forward to using and adding some accessories and lenses as I use the ProGrip more.
The ProGrip and the Accessories Kit make a nice package. However, having used it for a while now, I feel there's room for improvement.
First - Has ANYONE at Shiftcam ever thought of trying to use the ProGrip with their set of travel lenses? Really? Certainly not - because YOU CANNOT. When the travel lenses are attached to the ShiftCam case, the lid just won't open enough to allow to actually use the lenses. poor design, fellows, poor design!
Second - I understand separating the Grip and the Acessories Kit, but that is to be understood as a marketing decision. It would have been easier to incorporate the cold shoe mount right into the grip itself, plus adding a second strap loop - bingo!
No accessories sales, though. Bad.
Third - If the grip is used without the Kit I guess not only me but other users as well will find out right away that the rubber cover for the cold shoe mount just does not stay closed. It pops out ever so often, completely spoiling the professional look, simply annoying!
Fourth - Another improvement that comes to my mind (because I have seen, used and valued it in other products) is a removable shutter button. Would make the product just a bit more versatile.
Fifth - minor gripe, I know ... my kit came without the cold shoe mount
Der Grip wirkt sehr solide gebaut. Auch kleine Handys (bspw iPhone 13 mini) passen hinein. Jedoch funktioniert der QR-Code zum Ausrichten der kleinen Handys für Wireless-Charging funktioniert noch nicht - es steht „Coming soon“.
Der Bluetooth-Auslöser und das Wireless-Charging funktionieren problemlos. Der Preis ist schon teuer aber wer viel fotografiert und filmt wird sich über dieses Gadget freuen.
Finally it’s here!!! The grip houses the phone steadily. Transition from landscape to portrait is very smooth. Sensitivity of wireless charging is on point (alight you phone with help of the marker). Very steady grip, as if you are holding a DSLR camera. With the Prolens series, it really expands the capturing image of the phone to a whole new level.
