Summary: I'm very please with this flexible tripod. It is more stable than I expected, even with my Nikon D80 and semi-large lens. In an attempt to save money, I originally purchased a less expensive brand of flexible small tripod. One of the legs broke off as I was removing it from its packaging. So, I returned it and decided to try the Gorillapod GP3. It's so versatile, I find myself using it more than I thought I would.
Summary: This is a fantastic item. I use it with the ball mount and I have no problems with our Nikon D90 with even the largest of lenses. I have used this for hanging video projectors from a ceiling to using as a gun mount tripod. Joby is an incredible device and with the right accessories and imagination you can use this in hundreds of ways. I do recommend that you get a mount big enough for your expected use.
Summary: I do a lot of on spot video work and comes times need a product to be versatile and this little tripod is portable, steady, and makes my job a lot easier. Also, it's construction allows me to shoot more from more angles without a strenuous set up. A must have!!!
Summary: very good quality and easy to use. at first I was surprised that it does not fit Canon but realized later there was a "hat" on the screw to fit to on Nikon, if you take off the "hat", goes for Canon. Very easy to apply and use, like it so much!
Summary: Works great, stiffer than I expected, but its sturdy enough to hold an SLR camera, the picture provided with the large zoom lens is pretty accurate. It can definitely hold that kind of weight.
Summary: The best features of the tripod are its ability to stand on its own as well as mount to small objects. I have used it extensively with and without the Joby BH1 Ball Head with Bubble Level for Joby GP3 SLR-Zoom Gorillapods attachment, and I can say that without a doubt, the ball head is a must have.
