First, the joints are quite firm, yes it will support the camera fairly well, however when the legs are bent too far from a straight tripod style the leverage will over come the joints and your camera will sag in frustrating ways.
Second, forget framing a shot in a reasonable amount of time. Horizen line off a little bit? Be prepared to fight the above slops and sags while trying to make precision adjustments.
Third, make sure when you buy this that you are not expecting small tripod style behavior. You can't throw this thing down, make a couple of quick leg adjustments and go. You will be screwing around for a good 5 to 10 minutes trying to force it to do what you could have done in less than a minute with a real tripod.
Bonus - the screw that attaches to your camera is a pain to use. It is not fixed to the tripod; it spins freely. Who has a screw driver around all the time to take it on and off? I ended up lightly screwing it on and off by spinning the whole tripod while holding the screw with my thumbnail. This sort of works as you fight the non-slip rubber on the camera and the tripod top. After the frustrations of using it and not getting what I wanted in the shots, fighting to take it on and off the camera can be enough to evoke choice words from the most patient...
Overall this product might be easier to use with a tiny ball-head.Read more ›
Even then, it's a very springy platform and it will vibrate to the slightest touch, so if you're in a low light situation and need to use a stable platform, you'll need to use a cable release or use the 10-second delayed release timer. (Two seconds is too short a time -- the Gorillapod vibrates for longer than that if you exert enough pressure to trip the shutter.
There are two places where where I can use it with a mid-weight dSLR: (1) when I wrap the legs around, say, the top rail of a chair, or a two to three inch thick tree branch and get the platform close to the horizontal support and (2) if I want to get very close to the ground for a shot and can bend out the bottom half of the legs so they're horizontal. That makes it less likely that the knuckles just below the platform will buckle under the weight of the camera.
So: OK for a light SLR; limited use for a medium one (Canon 20D-40D-50D & 5D series or a Nikon D700); don't even think about it for a pro camera (Nikon D3 or Canon ID series). I'm sure this would work well for just about any camera lighter than an SLR. But even with a light camera, you need a delayed shutter release to let the considerable vibration from tripping the shutter to die down.
I regularly use it for low/no light photography with my Rebel XT and 10-22mm lens. I have made exposures of up to 30 seconds with no problems whatsoever. The bendy legs allow me to mold it to say fit on a chain link fence or tree branch and then use a remote trigger to trip the shutter.
This product will never replace a traditional tripod but once you understand what it excels at and learn how best to use it you'll be incredibly happy you bought it.
For a handy little tripod that's slightly smaller and much more versatile that a traditional tabletop tripod the Gorillapod can't be beat.
That said, the Gorillapod is ideal. It's clever design and lightweight materials make it easy to carry and useful for a variety of photo situations. The SLR-Zoom Gorillapod is sturdy enough to support my Nikon D200 with 18mm-200mm Nikor zoom lens, and at the same time compact and light enough to attach to my camera bag with a hook and loop strap. All 'n all, a clever, useful and travel-friendly photo accessory.

It's been a lot of fun playing around with this Gorillapod. I've wanted one for a while, and it didn't disappoint. I shoot a webseries, and use two cams. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Ernest
It was really easy to use. not complicated at all, great for beginners. I mostly use it for video stabilization but I would assume it is good for photo as well.Published 11 days ago by Marvin Ibro
I actually have another one of these as well as the Joby GP8-BHEN GorillaPod Focus with Ballhead X bundle. I use all of them and sometimes all at the same time. Read morePublished 29 days ago by Todd V.
So worth the money. It stowe's easily and works exactly as advertised with my Nikon d7000. One time I can give you is keep this out of the pool or the water in the beach.Published 1 month ago by christopher
Joints became very loose after a week or two of medium-heavy use. Had to purchase another brand to replace this shortly after.Published 1 month ago by Charles Jones
