Summary: This product is super handy for out hiking, biking, traveling or anywhere really. Many time I have used it wrapped around a branch, or stuck to the side of the truck with the magnetic feet. The only negative is they become brittle and break at about 35 below zero.
Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
Summary: I purchased this at the store to use with my GoPro. After 1x useage, it would no longer hold up the GoPro near the neck area. The legs are strudy and grip really well to metal objects. The GoPro was the Hero 2, and with no optional back peices attached.
Summary: A Great Product. I use this with a 'GoPro Wide' camera on my Solo Canoe. Size and weight are important to me as I must carry everything I take into the back country. This product fits the bill; Its small, compact, lite, and the magnets hold it securely in position at full hight to a small mount I built on the forward thwart of my boat...it does a great job. Its the only pod out there that solved the problem, and did so at a price that cant be beat.
Pros: Compact, Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Lightweight, Locks In Tight
Summary: I use this for my average size compact camera and it works very well for holding the camera in place for taking self portraits etc and and where carrying a full tripod is not possible. I have not used the magnetic feet function yet but the magnets seem quite strong.
Joby GorillaPod Magnetic Tripod: Love this Tripod.
8 January 2013
Summary: For me, this tripod is faultless, i use it with my Fujifilm AV100 which has a weight of 120g, this is around the standard weight for basic digital camera, there are many joby tripods to choose from, with the most basic models supporting 325g and the micro model supporting 250g, so this is more than capable of holding onto your camera and keeping it in position.
Joby GorillaPod Magnetic Tripod: Gorillapod sticks it to 'em
4 November 2012
Summary: The Joby Gorillapd tried to revolutionise the flexibility of camera tripods to help take photos from anywhere without having to hold the actual camera. For the large part this has worked, the individual little links on the tripod meaning that you can contort and twist it and wrap it around objects such as pipes and railings, attaching the camera to it and then taking the photo or video.
Summary: As just an occasional photographer who likes to take a camera on holiday, this tripod seemed like the ideal solution to taking those nighttime pictures or just for when the camera's shutter speed is slow (it's impossible to hold the camera perfectly still for long enough). I have been pleasantly surprised with this tripod which was, in my view, a snip at £15. My digital camera (admittedly not a DSLR) screws perfectly onto the tripod without any fuss.
Pros: Portability sets it apart, good quality build
Summary: I have wanted a tripod for a while now, I'm not a dedicated photographer but i am very into taking pictures of my kids and family, i love to capture all get togethers, after all you never know how long you have left with loved ones so i like to have memories in picture form wherever possible, before buying this tripod there was always somebody left out of the picture, usually me!! Not anymore!!!
Pros: Fully bendable, twistable, stickable....
Cons: can sometimes be awkward for getting perfect pictures.
