The manufacturing quality of this product is actually very good and if all you need is a phone mount then I would not hesitate to buy this....BUT.... If you want to use the external Microphone with the ColdShoe in this design just forget it and look elsewhere, the height adjustment knob is in the wrong place and is a HUGE DESIGN FAULT. I have several Rode Microphones but not one fitted because the cold shoe would not seat and lock securely due to hitting the adjustment knob. I should have searched product reviews before purchasing because I have know found many product review videos on YouTube showing this exact problem. For me personally I only purchased it because of the Cold Shoe mount so I wasted my money as this is useless for what I need.
The product is well made but badly designed. If you're thinking you can put a phone in the mount and securely attach it to a tripod, then store it away flat in a minimum of space this is a good item. However if you want to mount a microphone on top (Rode VideoMic or similar?), while the shoe is there the adjustment knob for the width of the mount almost completely blocks it. The mic will just about stay there but it's not holding on by much since it can't completely engage the shoe - the prongs of the mount would only have to have been slightly longer for this to be an almost flawless phone mount. Think harder next time Ulanzi.
Very well made. Nice to look at. Nice to handle. I would like to fit a directional microphone to the shoe mount on top but I think the tightening screw will get in the way. Almost perfect, but not quite.
