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

  • Summary: this tripod is sturdy and flexible as suggested but very small in size. Will be of more use if size can be little more.

Joby GorillaPod Original is okay but with some limitations

Suresh Joshi., flipkart.com
24 April 2014
  • Summary: Joby GorillaPod Original (Blue & Black) Pros: * Light weight * Camera can be detached/mounted easily Cons: * With my Olympus point-and-shoot camera which has the screw threads on one side (not in center of camera bottom), this tripod always shakes while clicking the shoot button. Solution is to use timer, which opens shutter few seconds after the button click. * The feet of the stand are small in length and weak.

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

Bisschen wackelig.

Oliver "oliver", Amazon
12 November 2014
  • Summary: Bisschen wackelig das Ganz, eigentlich ein interessantes Konzept, aber in der Praxis nicht so praktisch wie man denken könnte. Kein must-have. Durch das steife "Dreieck" in der Mitte, auch nicht sooo klein bzw. flach wie man es sich wünschen würde.
