Found this to be unusable in practice with my DSLRs

Adam, B&H Photo
10 June 2015
  • Excerpt: I received this item as a bonus with my camera body purchase. I tried using it in a couple of different scenarios, both as a simple tripod on the ground, and using its gripping feature on a park bench and lightpole. What I found is that it is not up to the task of supporting a typical DSLR.
  • Pros: Folds Small
  • Cons: Unstable

Not very solid

Dblhaul, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I'm thinking the ballhead is the weak link in this set-up. The tripod itself appears solid but a 20d with a 24-70 2.8L mounted to the ballhead is not the least bit stable.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Lightweight
  • Cons: Unstable

Does Not Have King Kong's Strength

JPOPS, B&H Photo
27 June 2010
  • Excerpt: With a level and built in ballhead, it seemed too irresistable not to buy, despite the B&H salesperson frankly a little skeptical on it readily supporting a DSLR with a zoom lens. Since I've never been steered wrong by B&H, I should have listened.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Unstable, Weak Construction

Somewhat disappointed

Critical Gravity, B&H Photo
13 June 2010
  • Excerpt: The Gorillapod hasn't gone far yet, because my first attempts to use it have been discouraging. It isn't nearly so easy to wrap around things in a way that it actually holds the camera in a position that is useful. It is far from fast setting it up.
  • Pros: Folds Small
  • Cons: Awkward, Cumbersome, Unstable

Great idea but did not support weight

Peg, B&H Photo
11 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Product description said it supports up to 6.6 pounds. That's not really true, depending on what angle you position the legs. I found that it did not support my Canon 7D with 100mm lens. I could not get a steady shot.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight
  • Cons: Difficult To Adjust, Legs slip out of position, Slips Out Of Position, Unstable

Ganz OK

Cedric, Amazon

  • Summary: Ich habe mir dieses "Stativ" primär für meine G7X gekauft. Alles in Allem ein ganz gutes Ding, für etwas größere DSLRs allerdings zu schwach. Um den Joby auf dem Boden stehen zu haben mit einer DSLR reicht es, sobald man allerdings das Stativ beispielsweise an Stangen befestigt, wird meine Canon EOS...

Sackt schon bei 1,5kg zusammen!

fabio stolle, Amazon

  • Summary: Habe das Gorillapod mit einer Canon EOS 70D und einem Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM ausprobiert. Body und Objektiv wiegen zusammen genau 1502g. Das ist grade mal knapp über der Hälfte der Maximalen Last, und dennoch sackt das Stativ zusammen. Das macht es unbrauchbar.

Tragfähigkeit von 3 Kg ist definitiv nicht gegeben.

Clé, Amazon

  • Summary: Habe das Stativ an mehreren Objekten mit verschiedenen Oberflächen (Holz und Metall) getestet. Das Stativ war leider nicht in der Lage meine Kamera + Batteriegriff + Zoomobjektiv (Canon 40D, EF-S 17-85mm, BG-E2n) mit einem Gesamtgewicht von ca. 1800g sicher zu fixieren.

"zakt door in een warmere omgeving"

Patrick Warlop, Camerashop
20 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Ik heb het statief gebruikt in een omgeving van van 27 à 29°C....en stelde daarbij vast dat mijn Canon 5d mark III met een standaardlens door begon te zakken als ik het statief gewoon op zijn drie pootjes zette. In een koudere omgeving was het statief wel stevig genoeg.
