Hi DonalDuc (very complimets for your shots!).
I don't know the Pearl bag; i choose Dicapac because with my old P&S i've got a lot of funny with it and never have one single problem.
Pearl seems to be near the same; perhaps better front lens material and better camera fits for Dicapac?

Wow! This is a great accessorie!
I've valutated it, but it's a bit pricey and big, but i'm curious to see the steadycam capacity, because the inside camera stabilizer isn't so effective..

In fact the second one permit a more stable two hands handle, but is less portable and less rapid to fit.

I've uploaded a video sample [email protected]
Nothing of special; simply shot at full quality AVCHD and upload without compression to give an idea of the cam video capacity.

For best results download it and play offline on a capable hardware.

Default Another TX7 video sample

This one is 108060i, and has a variety of shots (indoors, outside, close-up, wide-angle, zoom) - quick tour of London.

You can still download the original to see it in all its glory.

Thank you very much for telling me about these. For years I've wanted something like the aluminum one for small digital cameras with offset tripod sockets. The only thing I can think of that would improve it would be be if the grip were covered with rubber.

I ordered the aluminum one for $9.90 including shipping here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=120552044067

I compared the Manfrotto to my Hague camera stabilizer http://www.b-hague.co.uk/Camcorder%2...zer%20HCS3.htm. The Manfrotto was like a large orange octopus dangling from the camera. Besides being cumbersome, the ball joint lacked refinement so it was sluggish when it attempted to dampen movement. I returned it immediately.

I'm happy that my link was useful to you

The grip is not good like the rubber one (it is so a little too small for my hand). And i would like to try to inverse the position of the camera to have the handle UNDER the camera, not on the left.

I will wait for your very first impression.
