Joby Gorillapod Original Tripod

Watts D Matter, REI
1 May 2013
  • Summary: Very satisfied. My only gripe is that the tripod top will not tilt a full 90 degrees for vertical shots, when the tripod is standing vertically. I could only tilt it about 85 degrees. The workaround is to clamp/wrap the tripod horizontally on a fixed object, if you can find it.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Strong Clamp
  • Cons: Small Range

Overall the experience left a bad taste.

  • Excerpt: The Joby works fine.I ordered a package the joby plus a few freebies and did not get the freebies. I contacted Adorama and said that they would fix it. Except when I came from vacation they said I had to send it back, in order to get the freebies. So I just left it at that without my freebies.

  • Excerpt: Not useful without a swivel mount. The combination of the two work great and should be sold as a pair, not seperately.

Fine little workhorse

Adorama
6 March 2009
  • Excerpt: I've been using this with a Manfrotto ball head with a Canon Rebel XSI and several lenses, and it's been a sturdy, reliable, and very flexible workhorse. It fits easily in my daypack and sets up in seconds. I'm impressed with the stability and ease of use.

When the big tripod is too much.

Adorama
6 February 2009
  • Excerpt: For trips that require some camera support, but not the very heavy tripod. All that's needed is a flatsurface, or secure legs around a railing, etc.Amazing gripping power when used in this manner.
