I've got a few painters poles laying around: for $25 or so, I could try getting the camera elevated. I think this would be interesting over a backstop at a baseball game. (hope no foul balls come straight back)

might be a bit unwieldy and difficult to handle with a DSLR on the end of it ?

I notice the website shows only a P&S.

Might be a bit tough for me to heft it up with the 400 2.8 IS on it. :-P

My shoulders have already had repairs done to them.

Elevated pole shots are usually done with a wide angle lens. Light SLR's are the norm other than P&S.

Thanks for that, I like the crash test section. :)

Hello, If someone would like to try the PolePixie adapter for purposes of writing a review, I will be happy to send some complimentary equipment. I am the guy who created it, and I sort of got dragged into manufacturing this equipment by colleagues who wanted copies of what I was making for myself.

Note: I'm not looking to influence any review....you could write your own honest post to say what you do and don't like about the equipment. And, if you feel strongly about not keeping any equipment that you review, you can give it away to someone else who is interested in pole photography or I'll pay the postage for you to send it back. I'm only interested in an objective review. If interested, please feel free to contact me off via the forums or via the web site.

I'll commit to sending adapters for two different people to evaluate them. I'll try to update the post promptly if two people respond with a request.

John Hokkanen

PS: I really like pole photography, and I have been doing it for years, so if anyone has questions about the subject in general, feel free to email me.

Since I already bought the pole, Id love to give it a whirl and write a review for you. I can send it to a few blogs, and you can use it if you want :)
