Top critical review
Good product but with certain basic flaws.
Reviewed in India on 24 July 2019
The construction is very good with sturdy aluminium material used throughout. Good rubber strips on the removable plate on top.
Two basic flaws are there.
Firstly,the tightening knob hits the camera body from the bottom making minor adjustments a bit of an issue and on has to readjust the camera on the top.
Secondly there is no 3/8 inch threading at the bottom making it unusable with many of the tripods or monopods.
They have mentioned also 1/4" and 3/8" on the baseplate but it is not on the tripod mounting baseplate and only for the camera mounting.
Most buyers who buy such a baseplate would have tripods or monopods which have 3/8 inch threading and this would be completely unusable for them. It would have a simple threading which the Flycam has unthinkingly left out or did not wish to give the users the convenience of usability.
Simple thing matters. Could have been good but turned out to be just so-so on the basis of actual utility.
