Great product! Add some threads.

Excellent design and useful product. 80 percent of my build time was spent on tapping the spare hole for the 1/4-20 bolt. I resorted to drilling it bigger then heating it with a soldering iron while turning it with pliers. The part should have a thread. Self-tapping is not a good use of time or energy. The experience takes away from the otherwise awesome product.

PocketSHOT 3D

Have not used it yet but can't wait to try it out once it's printed.

Good idea, poor execution.

The PocketShot 3D is a good initiative but is poorly executed. The idea is simple - with the low price tag, you take on the partial manufacturing and assembly. Although it sounds like a fun idea, this project has been nothing but frustration. Printing all the parts with 0.6mm nozzle using Carbon Fiber Polycarbonate on my Ender 3 took about 13 hours, and when assembly happened I found myself carving out holes to make them a bit wider so all the CNC machined parts can fit in. Once all assembled, I found out the joints are held by friction and loosening / tightening the joints with an allen wrench was the only way to keep the whole piece together. Depending on your print, you will either have very hard friction that won't let you rotate the parts or very loose friction that won't keep the joints in place. When placed the camera, the flex that exists in your 3D prints prevented the camera to achieve the stability you hoped and the over-the-camera-handle setup completely fails as a friction based joints simply cannot hold the weight of the camera easily. So you have to tighten the joints then you're left with a setup that needs to be loosen with the allen key again to fold them back. The original Pocketshot probably works better with CNC machined parts as they are sturdier and probably rotates better with just right amount of friction. This 3D printing initiative was a fun exercise but the end result leaves you a sour taste in mouth and is not a reliable way to hold your expensive camera setup.

Great kit!

The downloaded print files were spot on, Everything assembled with no issues. Have used the pocket shot mostly with an iPhone. I’m very satisfied with the entire experience.

A bit flimsy

The parts printed perfectly and all the provided components fit. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. Unfortunately, when the PocketShot is fully extended it lacks rigidity and overall feels a bit flimsy. It doesn't feel like a professional piece of gear. I'm a little disappointed given that everything I own from Edelkrone is exceptional. But the price for the PocketShot 3D was cheap. I hope Edelkrone continues with this approach of selling 3D model plans and components for video production equipment. I think it's a very cool idea that needs further development and testing.
