This 10 inch AGFA is roughly the same height as the Joby Gorillapod SLR model. Though it has far fewer joints, its still able to flex and grip about as well. But the design is sooo much better because each of the Gorillapod's joints is a possible, (a probable) point of failure. I have bought just about every size of Gorillapod in the past 5 or 6 years -- there is just something so appealing about the promise of a bendy flexible tripod, but EVERY SINGLE one, I mean like 7 or 8 of them, have ALL suffered hairline vertical cracks on one or more ball sockets. Once that happens, the strength of that leg is greatly diminished and the Gorillapod is ruined. Thats why I love this AGFA -- I don't see how a joint could break in any reasonable circumstance, and if it gets loose, I can just tighten it with the little allen wrench they give you. I have wondered why Joby never figured this out. Plus this was $20 whereas the Joby is over $30 (was more like $50 when I bought mine). Prediction: Joby will be out of business in a few years.

I bought this little tripod to hold a medium-size Panasonic Lumix camera. I used is for the first time on a 2-week backpack trip, where it was subjected to outdoor elements constantly, and it held up nicely and performed beyond my expectations. A friend had a Canon Rebel SLR with a 24-135mm zoom lens, and it had no problems holding the larger camera, also. The legs bend so that it can be used on uneven surfaces, such as boulders, plus you can bend them around small limbs or poles, which gives it versatility not found with a stiff tripod. Weight is an important factor, and it weighs in at only 5.5 ounces, so you hardly know you are carrying it. The quick-release plate works quite well, and never questioned that it might not hold the camera. I highly recommend this item.

Love the tripod. Note that mine included no instructions and it wasn't at first obvious how to tighten (or loosen) the segments with the included allen key. You have to pry back the rubber 'gripper' on the segment you'd like to adjust. Then just flip it back into place ; )

I should have read the other reviews about how easily the rubber feet fall off. I took this tripod on a trip and they fell off so many times that I eventually lost track of them. The tripod perches precariously without good traction without the feet.

This was a decent flexpod that I will use for a couple camera bodies. I would not mount my heavier 70-200 or 75-300 zooms on the camera because they'd test the limits of the flexpod grip. I originally thought the segments were metal, they are chromed plastic. While that was a bit of a letdown, the tripod does have some nice features. Adjustable tension on the segments and grippy rubber rings that will aid in holding firm on a metal pole or smooth wood pole. The little rubber feet have an annoying habit of falling off though - gorilla glue fixed that. Overall this is a decent flexpod for the money.

I was looking for a small grippy tripod for my Nikon D5200 that was more robust than most of the cheaper ones, yet not as spendy as the top of the line models. When this one was on special over the holidays I decided to give it a try. It's pretty close to what I imagined I would need - easy to flex but holds up under the weight of my camera and lenses, can be tightened up if needed, and the black plastic rings provide decent traction when wrapped around things. (They also keep it from marring, and being marred.) The tightening screws are under the rings so you'll need to do some prying to get at them - that would be a pain if you had to tighten all of them, but so far I haven't needed to tighten even one. Being mostly plastic it's light enough to not be much of a bother to carry around. You could clip it to a strap or belt loop with the screw on clip, but leaving the clip off and sticking one leg in a pocket (pants or camera bag) makes for quicker access.

[AGFA 12-Inch, Flexible Tripod with Foam Grips - Grey] The legs are super bendy, easy to adjust, and since they are only about 1" or so in diameter, you can fit them easily through narrow spaces. The foam grip is very secure and the legs will hold their bent position until you unbend them. I was concerned the foam might crack if I bent it repeatedly, but with moderate use over 6 months, it's still in great shape. It's also very lightweight and easy to carry around with all the legs together like a monopod. Plus the soft foam makes it comfortable to hold! I haven't had any problems with the rubber feet coming off like some reviewers have mentioned, so I'm wondering if they fixed that or if the reviews were for one of the other models. The only complaint I have is the little tightener on the bottom of the quick release plate untightens VERY easily when I am re-positioning the swivel head. I have to adjust the swivel head, put my camera on, RE-adjust the swivel head, remove the quick release plate and RE-tighten it. Repeat until position is perfect - and then DON'T TOUCH THE SWIVEL HEAD. Not an issue once everything is set up (and probably not an issue at all for anyone who isn't compulsive about getting that perfect angle...), but it makes set up a little tedious. Overall though, I'm very happy with it! Camera used: GoPro Hero3+.
