I use them, and they are great ! I have lots of different pieces and use them for mounting MDR, recorder, transmitter etc.

I have the 15mm and 19mm clamps and mounts and keep the mating bracket on the MDR. Makes for quick changes between Steadicam and hand held. Great stuff.

I find the V mounts have too much play in them for any Steadicam applications. I have seen AC's using them for various mounts in studio and hand held mode.
An AC in NOLA had an interesting rig. Now that most AC's work off the Preston 100% of the time, the most frustrating thing is to be setting up a shot, and you can't get focus because the AC has stepped away for a second. This AC had a V mount on the dumb side of the camera. Every time he stepped away, he mounted the FIZ handset on the side of the camera. When I needed focus, it was always there, either with him, or on the side of the camera. It's a simple thing, but avoids so much frustration when you're trying to show the DP something and you can't get focus.
