I don't have anything to do with this personally, but I need a couple of handles like this, so help fund this project!

you do not want to support your camera/lens from your your flash mount. it was not designed to be torque loaded and carry more then minimal items like a flash unit. no ability to balance the load with that config. looks like something that resulted from not thinking

That's nutty to swing around a heavy DSLR with an 'L' lens from the hot shoe...I'm sorry, did I say "nutty"...I meant insane!
You'd be MUCH better off with something like this.

HTH,
Omar

I'm going to be using mine with a 5D MK2 and a 28mm lens. They even say that they don't recommend anything over 5lbs. I ain't skeered!

"skeered" ain't your problem. there are simply better more intelligently designed products out there already that will outperform this within a reasonable pricing range

I purchased an Opteka X-Grip since I'm not all that confident that this venture will fund. Save your money! What a cheap piece of junk that thing is. Super flexy, and with an L Bracket on my camera, and I can't fit my fingers between my camera and the handle.
