If you are familiar with the Gorillapod concept there is nothing new about this one other than being bigger and having a ball head. The legs are big enough to wrap around a normal railing/post you would find in most touristy places. Bigger than a stop sign pole but smaller than a street light pole.
Attaching it to strange places is much easier due to the quick release on the ball head. You can position the pod, slide the camera in, test the load and then either adjust or start shooting.
My ball head is quite stiff to the point that if it has been unused for more than a day or two I have to push hard to get it "fluid" again. Not a bad thing in my opinion.
The quick release plate is small the level placement is excellent. I have gotten in the habit of leaving it on and using it to level my shots hand shooting. The connector is a screw and really needs to be tightened with a quarter so keep one handy.
If I had a complain it would be that getting the legs straight for storage can be a pain. It seems like getting one straight makes the others bent. This is not a "carry in a pocket" tripod and leaving it attacked would not be a good idea. I got mine on sale and I am not sure if I would have paid full price for it. Its a great product but the full price seems a bit excessive.Read more ›
Gorillapod filled the bill. Bought it with the BH1 ball head, and strongly suggest some kind of adjustable 'head' as screwing the camera onto the g'pod alone gives very restricted movement.
Used the G'pod extensively in the 'TerraCotta Warrior' exhibit in Xi'an. Almost perfect. Attached my Nikon D90 with a medium zoom. Wrapped the flex-legs around the guard rail and shot some very low exposures. Worked well. Attaching the 70-300mm zoom caused some 'creep' unless the lens/camera combo was almost level. Still, that's a lot of weight for so small a ball-head, and should be expected.
Night shots along the seawall in Shanghai and Hong Kong were perfect. DO use a self timer or remote release, as this isn't the most stable of platforms. That said, there aren't many tripods which will curl up in your camera bag. Took it to several museums which required a "Professional" permit for tripod usage and no one batted an eye.
Pro: Small, inexpensive, sturdy and okay for light zooms.
Con: The tacky rubber rings WILL slip on metal rails w/o careful adjustment.
It's smaller than just about any other travel tripod. The legs don't extend. What you see is what you get. Still, if you can live with an upward angled shot, or if you can find something to set it on (see versatility below) then you can't go wrong with this guy. It's so small that it may actually fit INSIDE your camera bag, instead of having to be strapped to the side.
The flexible legs give this tripod the versatility to "grab" onto things as other tripods cannot. You can wrap it around a light pole, tree branch, park bench arm-rest, ... you get the picture. Yes, it's short, but you can connect it to just about anything. In my mind, that's a fair trade.
The look of this tripod is a feature in a way that you wouldn't expect. Frankly, it's ugly and not-at-all professional looking. However, I think that's a BONUS. A lot of tourist attractions have taken to forbidding tripods. Whatever their rationale, the more "professional" you look the more hassle you're probably going to get. I don't take my carbon-fiber Manfrotto to museums. I take this guy because it flies right under the radar and I can generally play the "stupid tourist" bit. Then again, if not, ... see "speed" below.
Assuming you buy the one with the ball head, this baby is FAST. Just leave the mounting plate attached to your camera and you're ready to go in seconds -- no legs to extend, no knobs to tighten, nothing. Simplicity makes for speed. When you're done, pop the plate off the base and stow the tripod again.Read more ›
Using the tripod is easy with the adjustable legs. Each "nub" has it's own ability to twist and pivot within it's mount so you can really twist this thing around a number of items for great shots. I recently wanted to take a photo of me and a bunch of friends lined up a staircase in a vacation home so I wrapped the Gorillpod around the top of a dining room chair for a make-shift tripod mount and was able to get the shot. Very nice. I used it to take pictures of a sunrise by wrapping the Gorillapod around the corner of a patio deck and was able to get the shot. It just sets up so quickly that it's hard NOT to want to use this thing more and more.Read more ›
