So far, so good!

  • 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.
  • Pros: Easily Adjusted, Flexible, Portable, sturdy

Solid

  • Excerpt: Held my 5D mkII and 17-40 with no shake. The legs are stiff and stay in the position you put them in. Pricier than the other Joby's, but works very well.
  • Pros: Good Footing, Locks In Tight

Awesome

  • 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.

  • Pros: Small Enough To Fit In My

Makes the Gorillapod more usable

Cresent, Adorama
20 February 2012
  • 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.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly
  • Cons: Unstable
