    Only 6 days after clicking on "buy" i got my package from US to france, that's what i call Speed! i'll try it as soon as possible.
    Brilliant!!!! Can't wait to see what you can do with it. It's truly a wonderful piece of kit. Make sure to pick up a 52mm wide angle lens (Amazon has 'em for steal prices).

    This is cool!
    What lens can you put on that rig? SLR lens/fourthird/prime?
    And.. what lens youre using now with the 1520?
    You can create (or buy) homemade DOF [Depth of Field] adapters that will work with the Beastgrip, but 50mm SLR lenses do not outrightly work with the beastgrip. There's guides online on various sites that instruct you how to make them. Other lenses work though, in the 37mm and 52mm sizes, and with step-up rings you can go large, if you want. I currently use a 52mm wide angle lens on a 37-52mm step up ring. The lens also unscrews in half and becomes a macro lens. There are also fisheye and babydeath lenses as well. Amazon has everything you need.

    The Beastgrip, by default, accepts 37mm threads. But again, with step-up rings, you can go larger.

    I spoke with the developer today, and he informed me that he's resigned a different piece of the Beastgrip, so it'll work even better with the 1520. He's going to be sending it to me later this week- I'll keep you all updated on what that piece is and how it works as I get time to test it out. This product is ever-evolving, and it keeps getting better all the time!

    In the meantime, here's another shot I was able to get using my 1520/Beastgrip combo. Cheers!

    I would like to buy a mount of some sort now that Movie Maker is on the app store and I can shoot/edit all on my 1520. I'm tired of taking shoddy videos with my phone leaned up against some object, and would like a quality mount/tripod. Is this the best route to go?

    Does the audio captured from the 4 directional stereo microphones degrade when you have such a bulky case/grip? Does the grip apply much pressure to the device?(if the damn vibrate feature of the phone is enough to cause "bleeding/white spots" on left side of screen so would mount pressure). Is there a better option for an amateur photographer looking to record acoustic instrument samples? Thanks!

    Update! I got the new clamp piece from the developer, and was finally able to take some photos of everything installed. It's been raining here constantly over the last week, so it's been tricky finding time to get outside in good light.

    New upper grip (accommodates the size of the 1520)

    Brand new clamp, which is smaller than the original one, and has a much tighter fit. Whenever the 1520 is not attached, this clamp doesn't jostle about at all!

    The new clamp has the Beastgrip logo imprinted on the outside!

    Everything installed:

    Coooool. I've been wanting to get the Beastgrip for my 1520.3 since I got it a few weeks ago, but I just want to be sure that the newer parts would be part of the order. I did shoot them an email a while back, but I have yet to get a response, but I was thinking of placing the order anyway.

    How are you altering the depth of field for that lovely bokeh without an f-stop adjustment?

    Thread Dead???

    I just picked one of these up today for my 1520. All I can say is that it is an awesome piece of work. Pretty cool to play with.
    I was able to pull off some pretty cool images with this thing. Im using the same lens setup as the OP.
    I have been looking for a good fisheye but can really find one. (Im not really confident in what Im looking at yet).
    Any suggestions on some more lenses??
