So far, so good!

Mat, Adorama
29 April 2014
  • 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. It's not small, about the size of a bunch of celery, but I am happy with the trade off between size and capability.
  • Pros: Easily Adjusted, Flexible, Portable, sturdy

Solid

Antknee, Adorama

  • 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

Just bought my second one

Joost, Adorama
18 February 2014
  • 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. The compact size is a real winner for me, that's why I just bought a second one for on top of my DIY slider for motion timelapses, which replaces a Manfrotto 496rc2 that was stolen. I prefer an Arca-Swiss style clamp as this Ballhead supports.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Double Slotted, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Small, Strong Clamp
  • Cons: Not For Heavy Equipment

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.

Heavy Duty

Wayne, J&R
26 December 2012
  • Excerpt: It took more effort to wrap the legs around items than expected - I imagine that is to prevent slippage once its in place - too early to tell.
  • Pros: Small Enough To Fit In My
  • Cons: Heavy

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. It must be wrapped around something to make it more stable. Still, having the head on the legs is helpful to compose the photo.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly
  • Cons: Unstable
