Nifty

  • Excerpt: I have been familiar with this product for some time so there were no surprises. It packs easily and is sturdy enough to handle my rather heavy DSLR (Canon 5D MIII).I have some mobility problems and will be using it to steady the camera when shooting from a car window.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Obviously Not A Profess

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.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Large Range of Motion

Solid Tool

  • Excerpt: This is a hardy Gorillapod version, Hardy enough to hold a 70-200mm lens. But, It is usually too heavy to be hanged on any location like the smaller Gorillapods are.
  • Pros: Flexible, Folds Small, Good Stability, Solid, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Can't be hanged anywhere, Heavy

  • Pros: Fits into camera bag, Folds Small, Lightweight

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