Disappointing with iphone 6 plus

Mike, B&H Photo
20 October 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this tripod to use with an iphone 6 plus. I like how compact and flexible it is. Unfortunately, the iphone 6 plus is too heavy for the mount. It works if the iphone is directly above the mount, but if it is angled up or down, the iphone will slowly drop forward.
  • Pros: Compact, Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Lightweight
  • Cons: Unstable

Total "meh"

Steve, B&H Photo
2 August 2010
  • Excerpt: While the gorillapod claims great flexibility in terms of stabilization in odd places, the reality for me was quite sub-par. With a D90 and the kit lens, the pod wouldn't wrap tight to anything nor stay upright on a flat surface. I returned it.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Unstable, Weak Construction

Do not trust your $1000+ setup on this.

NoName, B&H Photo
24 June 2010
  • Excerpt: It was nice at first while it lasted. But it did not last to long. I had this tripod for about 6 months, out of which 90% of the time it was sitting on the shelf. I carried it around on 3 vacations and used it for max 200 shots. The joints are already loose and quite a few of them are cracked.
  • Cons: Unstable, Weak Construction

Small Gorillapod Almost Useless

gryphon, B&H Photo
9 October 2008
  • Excerpt: If your small camera has the tripod mounting socket located near or on it's outer bottom edge (not centered) you will probably find that the unbalanced weight of the camera will cause the Gorillapod to be unable to support it. The Gorillapod is simply not tight enough to handle this job.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Loose Clamp

Pointless

Molson, WEX

  • Summary: Unfortunately this product does not 'do what it says on the tin'. I found it to be hopelessly unsteady and effectively a complete waste of time and money.
  • Cons: Everything

Zu schwach

Kaffeehäferl, Amazon
9 April 2015
  • Summary: Dieses Ministativ trägt die GoPro 3 im wasserdichten Gehäuse nicht. Die Kamera ist zu schwer, das Stativ ist nicht fest genug für das Gewicht. Wahrscheinlich wäre das nächst stärkere (Joby GorillaPod GP3-01EN) besser gewesen.

Pas de chance

HERVE, Amazon

  • Summary: A vrais dire je n ai pas eu le temps de profiter de ce qui se présentait comme étant un trépieds solide et fiable. A la première sortie, 1 jour après la réception du matériel, essai.
