Excerpt: I got this to take on trips and camping. I've only used it for a few shots so far, but it works as advertised. The ball head and tripod are strong enough to hold my Camera with a 70-200 lens just fine.
Excerpt: I had one of these as part of my Gorillapod Focus setup. Holds fairly heavy equipment well, I have routinely used this as my main tripod setup with 5D series cameras and lenses op to Canon's 70-300 L without any problems.
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Double Slotted, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Small, Strong Clamp
Excerpt: I haven't had a chance to give this product a real work out yet, but I played with it to see that it would securely hold my camera in place. I am looking forward to having time to use it more. I don't see any problems with the product whatsover and feel it was a great value for the price.
Excerpt: I use a Nikon D7000, which is 24 ounces, without a lens. Once I put the lens on and mount it on the Gorillapod with the Joby head, the functionality of the Gorillapod legs are strained. If I set the legs up in an upright position, it tips forward.
