“I do have some vlogging experience as I sometimes help out a friend of mine who owns a production company that does YouTube videos, though I’m usually the one operating the camera. Compared to the grips I’ve used before I actually like this Canon grip because it is bigger, so its actually easier to grasp in my hand and I reckon it offers more stability.
I also liked how it is super easy to adjust, you can not only easily rotate your digital camera 360 degrees but also switch it from portrait to landscape. The removable remote control is a great idea if you use the tripod to shoot selfie videos and lets you control recording and zoom.
In my personal life, I actually prefer snapping photos to capturing videos, and like using mirrorless or compact cameras.”

Compatible with Canon’s EOS M and PowerShot G series cameras, the HG-100TBR can be easily transformed into a table-top tripod for self-recording or self-portraits.
