  • Excerpt: works with 5Dmk2 + 24-70 or 70-200 f4 but all positions not possible. However a lot lighter, smaller and useful than a real tripod during holidays!
  • Pros: Folds Small, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Unstable

decent for what it is

  • Excerpt: the magnets on the feet are fairly strong, but even though my camera is lighter than what it is rated for, they seem a little inadequate. the adjustment mechanisms are a little stiff and it feels like it is going to break if i adjust the ball. there is no screw to tighten the ball, so they just let the friction do its job. maybe it will loosen a bit with age?
  • Pros: Compact, Easily Adjusted, Lightweight
  • Cons: Difficult To Adjust, Flimsy

Kind of big, but easy to carry

  • Excerpt: It is easier to carry than a tripod, especially in a small bag. However I have tripods that are about the same size when folded. Although not easy to setup, it does what it's supposed to do, and it does it well. Don't expect to wrap it around a tree branch or pole when using an slr camera. Its a good table top, ground, bench tripod but not what I imagined. I can sometimes get it to hold on a handrail with a horizontal bar, but not on anything vertical.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Cumbersome, It's rather large

Not strong enough for a DSLR

18 January 2012
  • Excerpt: I bought this tripod for vacation photos to use with my Nikon D7000 when unable to carry a full size tripod.<br /><br />It is rather difficult to adjust a precise angle without the ball head (it should be sold with the head included, it is needed). Even with the ball head (used it with BH1-01EN) it takes quite a bit of fiddling to set it up and there are limitations: vertical shots absolutely impossible, the camera will tip over (even with a lightweight 18-55mm lens).
  • Pros: Folds Small, Lightweight
  • Cons: Unstable

Good Product, not sure if it has much us

  • Excerpt: Annoying to screw in a small piece of plastic, then attach to the tripod.<br />The movement of the ball is so firm that it takes some time to get the camera positioned where you want it.<br />More hipe, less useful. Just a common tripod would do fine. Easy to screw in and out. The magnetic feet may come in handy, but how often is one going to need it?

One complaint

  • Excerpt: You cant tighten the knob to hold the camera steady and then pan. It locks both the camera and the Pan at the same time. the 'X' ballhead has separate knobs for the pan and the lock.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fits Well, Solid/Sturdy
  • Cons: Poor Design

Useful addition as a travel tripod

  • Excerpt: The gorillapod is pretty much what I thought from information I had read, Price was about what I thought proper, [...]maybe they should have mentioned the addition of a ballhead to the order, I ended up buying it from someone else.
