  • Pros: Compact, Easily Adjusted, Good Footing
  • Cons: Flimsy, Wears Easily

  • Summary: Right out of the box I tried to adjust the legs and one of them broke off. I don't know if it was a lemon or this is just poor craftsmanship. I would not recommend this to anyone with an slr.
  • Cons: Unstable, Weak Construction

  • Summary: instead of carrying big heavy tripod around, this one is well worth it!!! I call this my little spidy, able to hold $2600 worth of camera gear (Canon 7D w/grip, 17-40L) this little tripod can go anywhere you like.

Joby Gorillapod SLR-Zoom

  • Summary: This tripod is great in that it folds up small, is light weight and very portable. However, I highly recommend using a tripod head with this product. You can either buy the ball head separately or with the gorillapod, or use your own tripod head.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight
  • Cons: Needs a Tripod Head

  • Summary: I really like the Joby and the way you can use it for the camera and the video camera. It seems to be really stable when I tried it using the video camera in the house. I can't wait to use it outdoors.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly

Great gadget

  • Summary: I bought this for my SE Asia/Japan trip. Everywhere I went, there were people("tourist) to help me take picture... When I was in Japan and I felt a bit safe to take this baby for some night picture, it fails me. It didnt do the job because of winds and slippage plus slow shutter speed.
  • Pros: It does the job in area where tripod is not allowed. It does hold an XTI + 24 -105 EF lens.
  • Cons: Doesn't hold strong enough when taking night picture. Winds and slight slippage will cause your picture unusable when taking picture with slower shutter speed.

ultra configurable and versatile tripod for SLR with...

  • Summary: I have a Nikon D80 DSLR with a 18-200mm zoom lens. So I wanted a "flexpod" that can handle up to 7 lbs. This gorillapod works great and can hold my DSLR with zoom lens easily. I also use it for my compact Casio digicam and also my compact Canon camcorder.
  • Pros: versatile, light, configurable many different ways, strong enough to hold DSLR with zoom lens (up to 6 lbs), rubbery feel has good grip even on smooth surface
  • Cons: no quick release plate, bulkiest of the "flexpods"

  • Summary: I bought this product for a recent cruise that I took in the Carribean. I wanted to be able to have the flexibility to mount my DSLR on various surfaces to get pictures with myself and my wife in them. This product did not disappoint.
  • Pros: Sturdy construction. Goes anywhere and grips almost anything.
  • Cons: Hard to pack in my gear bag.
