However, I take these product evaluations seriously, so there are some things a prospective buyer should know:
It may be a tad "ambitious" to name this the "SLR" version.
Personally, I would not use this on an SLR, unless you have a really light and cheap one.
Do yourself a favor, if you want this kind of tripod, and plan to use it on an SLR, get the next model up. The "SLR ZOOM",
whether you're using a long lens or not.
This one is appropriate for a "point-n-shoot". Very sturdy for that application.
I'm using it mainly with a Samsung TL500 which is a pretty heavy compact cam at close to 400g (just under a pound).
I wouldn't trust it with anything heavier.
It has one obvious problem, so lets get that out of the way.
I was amazed that the quick-mount plate is a loose and sloppy fit.
At the premium price Joby asks for it's product, I expect better.
The whole POINT of a tripod is to hold the camera firm and steady.
A wobbly mount plate is unforgivable. It guarantees that the cam will wiggle.
On the bright side, you just wrap the mount plate with a bit of blue "Painter's tape" to take up the slack, and it's good to go.
But one shouldn't have to do that.
(Painter's tape is the best stuff in the universe, I am never without it.)
Now for the good part:
It's very light, trim, and sturdy if used with light cam, and extremely versatile.
I'm not sure how long it's going to survive, (all plastic) but at least for now, it can really grab quite well onto things,
which gives me a lot more freedom, and lets me work FAST. I like that.
But here's a tip...
To help get steadier shots with long exposures (expecially on wobbly mount plates) if you don't have a remote or cable release, use the "timer" option.
Most cams have 2 second and 10 second self timer options. That's what the 2-second option is for. Just pressing the shutter button is enough to
vibrate the camera. Two seconds gives it time to calm down. Try it. You're images will come out sharp as a tack.
Scoring this was diffiult.
(AMAZON: we need HALF-point options please!)
I must knock off a full point for the loose mount plate. That's only fair.
Secondly, I'm really feeling obligated to bang another 1/2 point off for the price.
I appreciate design innovation, and Joby came to market with a good idea. But honestly, the item is over-priced by more than double, given the quality.
Mind you, I still recommend this product because of it's unique versatility.
Just be aware of it's issues, and it should work well for you.
Must admit that the first of these was bought for use with my Joby GorillaPod Hybrid that I had bought here awhile ago. This already has its own bubble level, so when this GorillaPod SLR Clip arrived, I was concerned that I had bought the wrong item. I had... but the surprise was that it fit and functioned perfectly, and just overlaps the existing built-in bubble level on the GorillaPod Hybrid.
Since I already have the Joby GP3 GorillaPod SLR-Zoom Flexible Tripod and a Joby BH1 Ball Head, these GorillaPod SLR Clips integrate perfectly with my existing camera gear, allowing for excellent modularity and additional functionality, and I've bought a couple of them. They snap into place with an audible and reassuring click, and never have I had any problems with them feeling wobbly or shaky under normal use. The only downside is that they're what we refer to as 'coin tighteners'... they do not have a knurled knob or an attached finger tightener loop that you can lift to install or remove the camera from the clip. That's obviously because of their compact, slim design, so be sure to have a coin handy; a quarter works perfectly.
This is the type of modularity that makes life out of a camera bag much easier. Don't know what other GorillaPods these may fit other than the ones mentioned here, but I suspect that the Joby GP2-41EN Extra GorillaPod SLR Clip with Bubble Level may fit even more. Again, if you have multiple cameras and are into the versatility that GorillaPods offer, these are highly recommended.
If you screw the bubble level into the base of the camera, detaching the camera from the Gorillapod and reattaching it become fast (2 seconds) and easy (just press the JOBY button and remove the camera+level).
I ordered this with the "Eco" packaging, which was perfect - the minimal amount of carton around the product, without any plastic to wrestle with. I highly recommend this tripod and if you have a light enough camera, look for the version with magnetic feet, for extra placement opportunities. My camera has a pull-out swivel screen, which makes it great for placements in any position, at odd angles where a fixed screen on the back of the camera wouldn't be visible.
