So how are you finding this Chinese grip guys?
I need to buy one, and if I don't have have to spend big$$$ on an original, I'll be a happy camper.
Is the tripod thread solid?
I need to carry the camera around using a Black Rapid strap, and the security of the tripod mount is important to me as I'd hate to have the camera fall to the ground because the thread on the bottom of the grip fell out!
Don't worry about the built quality..this is as good as 3rd party grips go. The bottom plate and mount are made of metal, not plastic so it's solid.
I've used this for the past 4 shoots i've been on and i too am using a black rapid on it, swinging around running, jumping with it…no issues whatsoever..
