Excerpt: I would recommend this to anyone. Excellent tripod and you can put it pretty much anywhere. It is easy to carry on a hike and is fairly light. Be sure to get the correct gorilla pod for the weight of your camera. I use a nikon 1j1 with a 10-100mm and the 3kg rated tripod works great.
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
Summary: Very satisfied. My only gripe is that the tripod top will not tilt a full 90 degrees for vertical shots, when the tripod is standing vertically. I could only tilt it about 85 degrees. The workaround is to clamp/wrap the tripod horizontally on a fixed object, if you can find it.
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Strong Clamp
Summary: If you are expecting to use this as you would a normal, heavy duty tripod then you will likely be disappointed. However, its adaptability makes this tripod perfect for on-the-go photography when you are never sure when and for what you will need a tripod, and when you don't want to carry a lot of weight.
Summary: You get what you pay for. The legs are pretty much all plastic, and making them clamp sturdy to anything is a challenge, if not impossible. I guess for light use, it would work, yet it cannot take a beating. I had one of the legs break as I was trying to get it to clamp firmly to something.
