The most important is to UNDERSTAND that if you buy this combo it doesnt mean that it will replace your regular (big) tripod. This tripod works wonderfull if you "hug" something with the legs. It also works great for macro... as you can check in my video. This tripod would have save me a lot of time asking strangers to take pictures of me and my girlfriend while traveling in Paris and Brussels.
In my video you can see how it handles a Nikon D90 + Battery Grip with 2 batteries + 18-200mm VRII + SB600 flash. I also tested it with a heavier D300 + 70-300mm VR + SB600 flash.
I am impressed with how this combo was able to keep everything thight hanging from a door and a tree branch.
I didnt rate it 5 stars because few sections of the legs came not as tight as the majority.
I hope this video helps, and check the pictures i uploaded too. This thing does exactly what it is suppossed to do, it fits in any backpack, its light and the ballhead is simply superb.
For four days, I mounted the GorillaPod on trees, railings that overlooked mountains (Squamish, BC), bridges, and a bike. And for four days, the GorillaPod worked like a dream. It hung on solidly and there was not a bit of shake to speak of. The workflow was always the same: 1) Check the plate knob to make sure it was tight; 2) Carefully adjust the legs around the mounting point, being mindful of not applying too much stress at the point where the legs connect to the ballhead; 3) Adjusting the ballhead for the shot; 4) Carefully removing the legs from the mounting point, being mindful of not applying too much stress at the point where the legs connect to the ballhead.
But on the last day of my trip, and the reason for this one star review, is that two of the legs came off and the plate failed on me. Despite the plate being double checked for tightness, I bumped the camera with my knee and the camera fell a good 5 feet onto concrete. There are scratches to the eyepiece rubber which makes using the Sony's EVF uncomfortable/painful, and the camera will fail to start up once every few times (black screen). I can no longer trust the camera to be ready for quick pics anymore.
Lastly, as mentioned above, two of the legs came off. I was able to "re-attach" one of the legs, but a few minutes later when going back to adjust the leg, it popped back out again. I could not reattach the second leg as it looked like a part of the plastic had become grooved (the attached picture should be able to explain it better). Even if I could reattach the second leg, needless to say, I no longer trust the stability and durability of the tripod. Maybe I got a bad one, but my 600$ camera already took a spill... I am not willing to try it again on my DSLR.
All in all, it was a shame that this product failed to do what it was supposed to do. I very much wanted to like this product and for the first four days, I loved it. Use at your own risk.
I've had, and greatly enjoyed this tripod for four months now but tonight I was going over my gear and straightened one of the legs out and all of a sudden, one fell off. I wasn't doing anything to hyper extend the tripod or anything. I was completely caught off guard because for something this expensive and what seemed well built to just loose a leg seems a bit odd. I'm just glad this happened while I was going over my gear and NOT while it was strapped to something. So be aware! Not sure if I will be getting another one of these or not.
I contacted Joby after it broke and they responded right away the next day with details on how to get a replacement, I assume it helps that it was still under warranty. Well, its been three days since, and I got a nice looking package in the mail. I adjusted back to five stars because even though this happened, they were more than accommodating to their customers. This is a company I can stand behind! Thank you Joby!
I just recently bought a Canon 70d and this item is now useless. The gorillapod collapses under the Canon's weight. This item was marketed and listed as being able to support a camera like a Canon 70d. There's nothing special about this item, its the same concept as any 10 dollar flex tripod, but with a stronger connecting point for your camera to attach. The issue is this is not a reliable tri-pod for anything over a few pounds. It will collapse after a few minutes.
