5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Gorillapod yet., November 22, 2011
This review is from: JOBY GorillaPod Hybrid Tripod for Mirrorless and 360 Cameras - A Flexible, Portable and Lightweight Tripod With a Ball Head and Bubble Level (Electronics)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I am a big fan of GorillaPods. I've got a GorllaPod Original that regularly accompanies my old Canon Digital Elph cameras whenever it leaves the house. It's tiny and handy, but not suitable for anything larger than the smallest of cameras. There are times, though, when I need to support one of my larger point-and-shoots, or a compact DSLR, and that's where this model shines. It's more rigid than the original , has a level and a real ball head, and provides more than adequate support for my Lumix. Twisted around a tree branch or a chair back, it's strong enough to support a compact DSLR with a small lens (although if your main camera is a DSLR, you're still better off with the GorrilaPod DSLR-Zoom or the GorillaPod Focus).

What this particular GorillaPod is designed for, of course, is the new breed of compact, interchangeable lens cameras that are starting to displace DSLRs in the market. I've been looking into switching to the new Nikon J1 camera system, and this should be a great mate for that camera. Now this is not going to replace a real, full-size tripod. That's what my big tripods are for. But when I'm walking in the woods, I don't necessarily want to carry twenty or thirty pounds of heavy-duty tripod and head. Where the GorrilaPods shine is in portability. If you have room for a camera, you have room for a GorrilaPod that will work with that camera. With my GorrilaPod Original I've made a lot of time-exposure shots and low light shots that just wouldn't have been possible otherwise. It's not limited to camera use. You can use it to support an iPhone or iPod with the appropriate clamp. With the right adapter, you can use it as a microphone stand, or a stand for a webcam. All in all a very handy tool.
