Today we are going to be talking about two of our favorite action camera grips. Both of these grips are great for vlogging and really help out with stabilization. They both work great as an accessory for the Sony FDR-X3000 or any other small or action camera you have. The two grips we are going to be covering today are the RetiCAM Hand Grip and the Zoom MA-2 Mini Tripod, which can actually be used as a grip. Both grips have a 1/4-20 tripod screw allowing them to attach to virtually any camera. If you want to use these grips on a GoPro you will have to purchase a Go Pro adapter.

Lets take a look at the Zoom MA2 first. The Zoom MA2 is actually intended to be a mic stand adapter and fits into a standard microphone holder.

There are several things that we really like about this grip.
  • This grip is very light weight.
  • The Zoom is small which make it very portable.
  • This grip is very sturdy for all that it is.
  • Very reasonably priced at just under $10.
We do have a couple cons for this grip.
  • You can really only use this grip with action cameras or very small cameras, possibly even with a G7X. You would not want to use it with a camera like a DSLR.
  • Being a mic tripod, this grip does not come with and is not compatible with a lanyard, so you do not have that extra security.
The Product Information:
  • Product Dimensions: 4 x 1 x 1 inches
  • Product Weight: 0.64 ounces
  • Color: Black

Now lets take a look at the RediCAM Hand Grip. Along with an action camera, you can also use this grip for a smartphone. Model HG20 includes the tripod adapter so that you can use your smartphone!
What do we really like about the RediCAM?
  • The RediCAM has an all-metal construction and makes it feel stronger and sturdier than the Zoom MA-2.
  • Enhancing the feel of grip is the soft rubber material that it is wrapped in.
  • This grip includes an attachable lanyard for extra security. The lanyard screws into the bottom of the grip.
  • Having a socket on the bottom of the grip, you could attach it to a tripod.

The only downfall to this grip is that it is not as portable as the Zoom MA-2 is. It may not easily fit into your pocket with the action camera attached.

The Product Information:
  • Product Dimension: 5.5 x 1.2 x 1.2 inches
  • Product Weight: 4.5 ounces

Both of these grips are great. If we just had to pick one of these grips to use, we would have to choose the Zoom MA-2. We love that it is super portable and it fits our lifestyle better. If you are more into action and sports, or want something strong enough for a DSLR, you may want to go for the RediCAM.
