Going Back

Chuck Steak, Adorama
25 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Doesn't maintain position or stability with a large zoom and body. (11 lbs. max handling is nonsense) My Canon 5d mkIII with my 70-200mm/f2.8 would not stay up and would eventually fall down. (5.5 lbs) Move the ballhead to the side for a portrait and crash she goes.
  • Pros: Portable, Wraps Around Stuff
  • Cons: Clumsy, No Spirit Level, Rarely Needed, Unstable

Joby Gorillapod Original Tripod

GeauxBobo, REI
6 December 2012
  • 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.
  • Pros: Looks Cool
  • Cons: Weak Clamp

It's good for holding a flash unit

Randman, Adorama
6 September 2010
  • Excerpt: These leggs claim to hold 6.5 Lbs, but when put to the test they kept collapsing my camera by sliding the leggs down and out from the weight which by the way is not even 4 Lbs with the lens attached and it is very unstable causing the camera to tip easy, so if you have this, hold your camera and...

More hype than substance

stee1face, Adorama
6 March 2009
  • Excerpt: I decided to give this thing a try after all the positive reviews, but after a couple of uses one of the legs crack. This is not a good product for realistic situations. Is more hype that substance.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Unstable, Weak Construction

  • Summary: The product packaging was very old and it looked like a used product. Looks like Flipkart has become just a dump for old stock.

Bra i början

Spectatorx, NetonNet

  • Conclusion: Denna GorillaPod är bra i början, men efter ett tag börjar grejerna lossna. De mer du använder de sämre den blir. Speciellt där låset är.

25 August 2013
  • Summary: När man skaffar ett stativ så vill man att det ska vara så stabilt som möjligt. Man kanske inte kan begära så mycket av ett osymmetriskt lättviktsstativ i plast. Minsta vibration märks på bilden och i vissa vinklar orkar den inte hålla upp kamera + objektiv. Även om viktgränsen är långt ifrån...

  • Cons: Ger vika, vibrationskänslig, vågar inte lita på de...

Joby Gorillapod SLR. Smart, men inte så stabil

e_lof, Ciao

  • Excerpt: När man skaffar ett stativ så vill man att det ska vara så stabilt som möjligt. Man kanske inte kan begära så mycket av ett osymmetriskt lättviktsstativ i plast. Minsta vibration märks på bilden och i vissa vinklar orkar den inte hålla upp kamera + objektiv.
  • Pros: Bra i lägen då vanliga stativ inte funkar, med lätt kamera och objektiv duger den .
  • Cons: Ger vika, vibrationskänslig, vågar inte lita på den med en dyr kamera på hög höjd .
