I used this with my Infant Optics DXR-8 Pro camera. That camera can't pivot down very far, so I was looking for some alternative methods to get the whole camera to be pivoted down so I could use it without having to mount sideways on the wall or upside down on the ceiling.
The clamp itself is nice and tight, and successfully holds the whole assembly to whatever you clamp it to, but unfortunately the gooseneck is too loose and droopy. When I angle it over a bassinet in an upright position, it won't stay fixed in the position I need. It gets even worse if you try to clamp it facing downward and bend the gooseneck into a U shape to keep the camera upright. It doesn't ever really "settle" in my use-case, it just keeps drooping until the gooseneck rests against something rigid.
Another negative is the method of mounting the Infant Optics camera - It requires the use of an adhesive on the front end, which doesn't allow for repeated mounting/dismounting. It would have been much more effective if there was some sort of mechanical latch to keep it from sliding out from the bolt catch instead.
Perhaps this would work with lighter cameras, or less picky use cases, but I really do need the camera to be fixed in place for this to be an effective infant monitor mount. I will be keeping it, as it does allow me to mount the camera upside down in some positions I couldn't previously do... but I will have to figure out how to deal with the adhesive wearing out for it to continue to be useful.
