You get what you pay for

Less stable than expected

  • Summary: I think I could hold the camera more steady than the tripod - which was the reason I bought it in the first place.
  • Pros: The legs grab and hang on
  • Cons: The connection to the camera is too wobbly

Quite a bit smaller than expected

Adorama
29 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I'm using this for a Go Pro (with a tripod mount). It's quite a bit smaller than expected, I understand this is the Point-and-shoot camera version, but the legs are only just enough to go around something as thick as a regular guy's wrist, and certainly not long enough to go around something like a fence post. Other than that, it does work as expected.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly
  • Cons: Small Range

Not Convinced

Angry Ape, Adorama
4 September 2011
  • Excerpt: I wanted a small lightweight tripod (or equivalent) that I could carry all day and use for travelling. The concept of this seems reasonable but it only seems to work if you have the right object to wrap it around. Railings are a bit hit and miss, maybe logs/branches and rocks are better but still not great. If you plan on using it on a 'table-top' in a more conventional tripod sense you'd be better off with a bag of custard.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Unstable

Sturdy but bulky

Adorama
4 September 2011
  • Excerpt: I purcased this to use with my Nikon D300s + long zoom. But actually, this model is larger than I prefer to carry around. The Joby ZLR zoom seems like a better fit for my needs.
  • Cons: Cumbersome

Not bad for a little head

Randman, Adorama
6 September 2010
  • Excerpt: I like this little head considering it's size it works okay for small stuff and is somewhat smooth and built pretty good for the buck. The plate tightens pretty good to the camera too and will not break loose from exsessive use.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Large Range of Motion

Not Very Sturdy!

Dog Walking Photographer., WEX
22 January 2014
  • Summary: I got this as a free gift so I'm not complaining about it.It is a very small, lightweight tripod and not much use if you have a DSLR camera. If you have a small point and shoot camera this would be a handy little gadget for taking self portraits when out on your own.It feels and looks like a toy so don't expect too much for your money.
  • Pros: Compact, Easily Adjusted, Lightweight
  • Cons: Flimsy

Geen goede aankoop.

Hoekstra, cameranu.nl
13 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Ik vind het statief niet bruikbaar. De poten zijn te slap om mijn camera, anders dan rechtopstaand, te gebruiken. De foto's in de procuctreclame van een camera aan een steigerpaal geven een verkeerd beeld. Ik ben terug bij de rijstzak.
  • Pros: Vast handig met een compactcamera
  • Cons: Mijn reflexcamera met korte telelens, samen 1500 gram, zijn al te zwaar voor dit statief dat ik had gekocht om met weinig gewicht de jungle in te trekken.

Der Gelenkige

T_Goose, Ciao
16 November 2009
  • Summary: Hallo liebe Leser. Für manche Fotografien ist ein Stativ notwendig. Doch manchmal gibt es keinen Platz für ein Stativ. Doch seit geraumer Zeit gibt es eine gute Alternative, das Joby Gorillapod. Dabei handelt es sich um eine flexibles Stativ, welches man beispielsweise um ein Geländer oder einen Ast wickeln kann. Aussehen Das Gorillapod von Joby gibt es in 3 unterschiedlichen Größen, wobei das Stativ dabei stets gleich aussieht.
  • Pros: Gelenkig, praktisch
  • Cons: Kamera verrutscht, nicht immer genau ausrichtbar
