I think the price on the one in your picture is outrageous though. If that's the price then just go find some legs.

It's much heavier than a tripod, not so easy to set the proper height (especially when you want to set it upper, you need to take the camera off). And you certainly won't be as stable
It's defenetly not designed to be used instead of a tripod.
Te only use I see is for a certain shot where you could not put the tripod...
I once used a mini jib on a bazooka on a basis like this, with my students, just because they didn't want to carry the Panther on the set, and honestly I didn't liket this mounting too much... (didn't have a problem though)...
