5.0 out of 5 stars Best tripod on the market!!, September 27, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Joby GP1-A1EN Gorillapod Flexible Tripod (Grey) (Electronics)
I still can't believe that this thing is real! And I'm blown away by the quality of the tripod.

The 'legs' are stiff enought that it doesn't fall out of shape as it holds the camera. Each little grey ring around the ball-like pieces are rubberized to help it grip onto objects. I have been able to mount my Canon SD600 and hold one 'foot' of the tripod while it remains in the shape I bent it into. The leg didn't change shape or sag at all.

I've had it on top of my LCD, hung it from a doorway, sitting on top of a lamp... I think the legs are long enough and the feet are 'grippy' enough to mount it to the side of a bowling ball!

The clip on top lets you mount and dismount the camera quite easily and without hassle. The only problem I could see is that with the mounting clip attached to the camera I can't put the camera in the fitted Canon carrying case that I have for the SD600. Well, it fits with it on, but very snug.

I can't stress how much I love this little tripod!! Get one; you won't be disappointed!

Top of the door, while open. Doesn't work so much when closed. =)

Hey Speer, He/she feels that is a very good tripod, and expresses that opinion in a superlative. And you are going to take that statement literally and call him/her a liar?
