Do all cameras work on the XShot?
The XShot is designed for digital compact cameras and camcorders.
It will support any camera that has a standard tripod insert and weighs less than 1.25lbs.
It does not work for DSLRs.
Is there a camera weight limit?
XShot holds safely a maximum camera weight of 1.25lb. (570g) Because the XShot is made out of reinforced metal it is able to carry a much heavier load than other products made out of plastic or plain metal.
How do you attach it to the camera?
The XShot camera adapter features a quick spin knob that allows users to quickly secure the XShot to their camera. The custom camera adapter on the XShot allows for 180 degrees of rotation for best camera angle and positioning. All this secured by the thumb screw that locks the camera in the desired angle without shifting when you take the shot because of the weight and movement.
Does the Xshot have a mirror?
Because the XShot extends several feet, the frame size more than doubles and the margin of error is much less. Thus a mirror is not needed. Even if we considered placing a small mirror at several feet away, it would be too far to see it.
Can I use the XShot Extender in saltwater?
Yes, however some extra care is required since saltwater is very corrosive.
When using your XShot in the ocean or saltwater be sure to clean it thoroughly after use, just as with any other diving or sports gear. To clean, fully submerge and rinse your XShot in fresh water. Extend XShot fully and wipe dry. Stand XShot upright upside down (with camera mount on the ground) to facilitate drying. Applying a small amount of WD-40 to your fingers and rubbing along the telescoping shaft can also help to prolong the extender's life and ensure continued smooth functioning.

The built-in 1/4” tripod socket at the base of the handle is intended for accessory usage and not recommended for high-stress activities such as attaching to moving vehicles or for bearing total loads beyond 2.5lbs (1.2kg).
Use your own good judgment in rough conditions and side with caution if in doubt. Have fun and stay safe!

Please keep in mind that the XShot was designed to be used when it is fully extended. This will allow you to get a good view of the background behind the subjects. It also allows you to have up to 5 people in the picture!
|Please keep in mind that the XShot is designed for digital compact cameras.|
The XShot is also great for video diaries and for taking videos. If you place your camera in video mode and spin in place for 360 degrees, when the video is played back it looks 3D as if everything is revolving around you. Perfect for capturing your surroundings when traveling to an exotic place or just for making fun videos! Drop us an email and let us know if you post any videos to YouTube. We’d love to see them.
