The HB70QR Side Camera Handle is a joy to use. It is light, rugged, well made, and everything locks together positively. The leather cover on the handle makes it both attractive and very comfortable to hold for extended periods of time. The unit is well balanced, both on tiny cameras like Sony mirrorless models, and big DSLRs. It gets the flashgun up and off the lens axis which gives a more flattering light to face shots. I was surprised to get such a quality product for such a reasonable price. Be sure to order the correct baseplate for your camera model. Take time to do this because their website is not too clear on this point. I should also mention that the baseplates are Arco-Swiss industry standard, so work perfectly with my Really Right Stuff clamps. I highly recommend this product.
