Excerpt: I've already used this tripod a few times now. I find it easy to use and stable enough. I've first ordered it without the ballhead but I am glad exchange it to the set with a ballhead later, it makes it much easier and practical to use.
Excerpt: I wanted a light tripod that I could take travelling with me. Usually I don't take one because of their bulk but I wanted to have the stability this time. I don't have the money to purchase a higher quality carbon fibre tripod so went for the Gorillapod. QR plate very handy.
Excerpt: The smaller Gorillapod I use with my point & shoot was so handy, I purchased this one to hold my Canon 5D Mark II and 24-105mm zoom lens for a recent trip to Japan. It was light and compact enough to easily carry around inside my backpack that served as my camera bag on photo outings.
Excerpt: I've been using this with a Nikon D300 DSLR and 18-200mm zoom. The mini tripod works well with the ballhead and quick release. I'd find the mini tripod much less satisfactory without it. The tripod tends to collapse when the legs are spread out much wider than the photo shows.
Excerpt: A fantastic tripod for travel and fast shooting. Can be set and leveled almost anywhere in moments, with the added bonus of being able to be wrapped around poles or strapped to objects just with the flexible legs. Good for a medium weight SLR with a smaller zoom lens.
Excerpt: This is a light weight and sturdy tripod for my DSLR. Its a little larger than I thought it would be (not as compact as the tripod for point & shoot cameras), but still okay for the daypack or my camera pack. Good quality!
Excerpt: I've only had this tripod for a short time, and have only had a chance to use it around the house, but worked great for setting up baby's eye videos of our 4 month old! Looking forward to using it with the DSLR. This thing is super strudy and appears to be heavy duty (it's heavier then it looks).
