Most camera brackets were designed for event/wedding photography and are not suitable for extreme sport photography.
The Opteka X-GRIP handle was specifically designed for skateboarding and other extreme sports. The shape and foam-padded handle offer incredible stability and control. The hot shoe attachment enables you to add a video light or flash. It fits most compact camcorders, digital cameras, and entry dSLRs (including Canon EOS 5D and EOS 7D). A 1-year Opteka Warranty is included.
Several Opteka Deluxe “Skaters” packages are available also.
