Has anyone used this grip with a Sunsniper Steel or similar? I'd much like to save the $$ but I'm kinda reluctant to hang my five pound, five grand kit from anything not built like a tank, as it will have to withstand some serious hiking.
I believe the Sunsniper is similar to the Black Rapid?
If you're reluctant to hang it from anything else but the original, then there's not convincing you otherwise.
If you can afford the original, go ahead..you get weather sealing and magnesium shell, same as the body…and it is built like a tank
The Pixel grip is i would say only 90% or so like the original. The mounts are all metal, unlike some others that are just plastic. The entire Pixel body is polycarbonate..which is bullet proof… I've used it for MANY shoots and it has never failed me nor do i feel unsafe with it attached to my camera.
