    Saving my life!!!

    I keep saying I'll be adventurous and use this for what it was intended for, after all it does come with a water proof case! However, my GoPro is saving my life with my father. You see my father has Alzheimer's and this little camera helps me make memories with my dad. Each and every visit with dad is recorded on the wide angle, which is helpful to show the entire room we are hanging out in or when I'm driving him around in a car! The GoPro suction cup is also glue tight to my window so I don't have to worry about it Falling and breaking this little gem. I attach the camera to a GoPro tripod and just put it on the table during my visits with dad. It's small enough not to be worrisome to my father and perfect for preserving our memories together. I was hesitant at first spending so much money. But after I was falsely accused of things during my visits with my father, I knew this GoPro was well worth the buy! It's saved me!!!! Embrace your family, record your memories, be adventurous, and... GoPro!!! ❤️

    Good but could improve

    I had not intended to go to the store to get this specifically - but happened to notice it in passing. The idea of having a ball-joint mount seemed so obvious, how has it taken GoPro this long to think of this?! Overall, it's good, but it could be improved. The joint itself is a bit stiff, which is both positive and negative; it prevents the camera from slowly drooping back toward the earth but it also is much more stiff than it needs to be. When I first got it, I expected it to easily rotate, but it resisted. In fact, it resisted enough that I had to take a close look at it, with a thought that maybe somehow they managed to package the wrong product in the ball joint packaging. After a bit of muscle it did finally turn, and bit more muscle it turned again, and now just requires a little muscle to turn as needed...but that little bit is a bit more than I would expected (a small child probably could rotate it...that...or I am just stupid weak)

    Worked, but could have been better

    I bought this to explore different mounting angles while skiing. It functioned well, but I had an expectation that was not met. Looking at the packaging or the on line description, it was not clear how it worked. I expected it to be like a ball joint on a camera tripod whereby one would loosen a lock nut, adjust the angle, and tighten the lock nut. This does not have such a nut. Instead, it is just plain tight. It held the position well once it was set, however, moving it was difficult. I felt like I was forcing it around, wondering if I was going to break it. It was really difficult to move when I had it mounted on a strap mount around the top part of my ski boot. The whole strap moved and twisted as I tried to adjust it. I really think a small wing screw type lock at the base that would allow a more freely moving mount would be the answer. Still would recommend because it allowed me to point the camera at unlimited angles.

    I feel that this joint is pretty good over all. The ball joint tension is pretty tight. But after several uses, I can tell that its going to get loose over time. I wouldn't recommend using this with any type of fast and jerky movement since you cannot lock down the joint at any angle. i think that this can certainly be improved for as much as it costs. The lock in foot part is kind of a disappointment. They should have designed it so you can interchange it with other joints as well. The rotation axis range is limited. I wish it could bend near 90 degrees. Works well with the goose neck attachment but you're going to have to shell our more cash to get the angle you want. I do recommend this to anyone looking for the angles but I would tell them to wait a little bit longer to see if they improvement in the near future.

    Works well but doesn't do exactly what I hoped

    This buckle is great for fine tuning the camera angle. But, it is VERY sturdy and not really capable of swiveling in action as I hoped it would. When you take it out of the box, be careful not to think is is not moving, it is just really tight. You need to attach the buckle to another mount so you have some leverage to twist it. I was hoping to be able to unlock the buckle and have it swivel around so I could catch things to my left and my right. But this really doesn't do that. It is designed to stay really stable and is deliberately hard to move. I hope GoPro comes out with a buckle that lets you unlock a buckle to allow for an easy swivel action, then lock it back in place. But, what this buckle does, it does very well.

    Does the job

    When I first opened the package I thought maybe I was using it incorrectly, couldn't adjust it all. The bearing was just really solidly stuck. After twisting and turning a bit it loosened up to the point that I can adjust the mount but it still holds my Session very steady. Bought it for a trip through the Colorado Rockies and wanted to mount my cam to the hood of the car with the GoPro suction cup, but car hoods aren't exactly level to ground. This helped get a nice level steady shot regardless of where on the car the cam was mounted. We'll see how long it holds up and maintains a solid hold before becoming too loose. So far so good.

    MUCH better than the stock joint

    I broke the prongs on the stock clip joint thing because it didn't come with any support between the prongs so I (unwillingly) bought this ball joint buckle, and I couldn't be happier now. I can adjust the camera any which way I want and it stays. It staying where I put it is a big deal since I ride a motorcycle and sometimes can get up in the triple digits, which with a loose ball joint would make the camera move. Not so with this guy. Would 10/10 buy again (not that I think I'll need to, because this comes with a support between the buckle prongs so that they won't break!)!
