Most Liked Positive Review


It does what it says

Actually, I only tried to use it once, it did not stay in my belt loop, so I could not use it. I was in a hurry, and did not really have the time to try and get it tight. I gave it a 5 because a far as I saw, it did what it said. When I take the time to put it on, I'll send another review. I was iln too much of hurry.

Works in a pinch

It's an OK product in a pinch when you don't want to carry a tripod but I believe leaning against a tree, building or another structure to be just as good

I purchased one. The line would never retract. Thought it was a good idea and returned it for another one. It arrived. I extended the line ONCE and it won't retract. This product is a miserable failure that shouldn't even be on the market.


not reliable


this gadget was DOA. The cable would not retract at all upon first trial. Item was returned at my cost which was fair because the product never worked.




Poorly made and arrived defective.


Mine Did Not Work, At All


I was anxious to try this. It looked simple and seemed to make a good companion to the Canon S90 I carry with me all the time. I opened the package and it all went downhill from there. The cord would not retract, once extended. I tried pushing it back in but nothing worked. Given the price of the item and the cost of shipping, I decided to open it up and try to fix it myself. That did not work. I threw the pieces away. Maybe I just got a bad one. Also, I noted that this item is made in the USA.


Of no value as of this date.


I remain a strong Adorama customer. However . . . the Steadpot arrived as scheduled and, really, is not of any value to me. The wire line does not return to the main pod. Three or four have examined it and there is no hint as to how to resolve the problem. My decision has been that I simply made a bad purchase and that cost-wise it is not worth the effort to return it. Thanks


in the trashcan 3 minutes after arrival


i extended the leash for the first time upon opening the product and then switched to 'retract' mode and it was totally and irretrievably jammed. no amount of tweaking or coaxing could ever get the leash back into its compartment.

Broke after 3 uses


Nice idea, but retraction function stopped working after 3 uses. Glad it wasn't more $$.

Bad Design of Retraction Spool


I wanted to use this to stabilize the camera vertically when tripod or monopod is not practical, and it did provide stability, once the wire was out and braced. But the failure of the product's rewind mechanism to retract the wire quickly and efficiently is such a time-consuming struggle as to make it unfeasible to use. Took me 15 minutes or more to get it to retract, by letting it retract until it stalled, pulling wire back and teasing it back in--multiple times. Don't have time to waste on this, especially on a commercial shoot. For me, this design flaw overrides the value it has as a stabilzer. Product needs to be re-engineered so that the wire retraction is smooth and fast, like that of a good tape measure. That would make it worthwhile.

Good Idea, Bad Quality Conrol


Cable would not retact the first time I used it. It could be useful when one could not use a tripod ---if it would work.

Trash! Won't retract. Don't waste your $


Pulled it out once, and the unit would not retract. Don't waste your money.
