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
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I ordered it...though it arrived in 2 days, the product is very light and too small( looks like beads woven together). I mounted my Nikon D5100 with 18-55 lens on it and it was shaking and toppled. It's only good enough for compact point and shoot
Summary: It is of no use for my dslr but at places inside deep forest i use this very well for my flashgun. even the legs are so weak, it could not support the weight of my cameras on table top photography with 50mm or macro100mm. The load factor could have been declared, i would not have go for this.
Summary: I have 2 lenses; 18-55 & 55-300. I can't use this tripod with 55-300, cause it is too small, though it never mentioned it was a mini tripod. Overall feed back, not so good. Yes, it can be used with point & shoot, but only low zoom.
