  • 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

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.

  • Summary: I was surprised at how lightweight the gorillapod was once I got it out of the package. That's a good thing because it makes it super easy to travel with. Unlike the regular gorillapod the zoom doesn't come with a moveable head.
  • Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Lightweight
  • Cons: Lack of moveable head

  • Summary: Bought this for my Europe trip. It fits the side pocket of my KATA H-14. The weight and size are just right for trips that I can't take my full-size tripod. It feels stable with my Rebel XT and 70-200 IS. The legs won't bend for that setup. It's a nice product.
  • Pros: size, light-weight, reliable. I can go anywhere with it in my camera bag.
  • Cons: no quick release
