Now, the quick release feature on this gorillapod it's incredible helpful. I can attach and detach my camera off the gorillapod in a second! With this feature I can simply slide my camera into the pod and start shooting quickly. I love it!
The fluid head works perfectly I can position it at any place and secure it without a hassle. The leveler behind the quick release plate works perfectly. I can now see if I'm holding my camera straight or if I'm tilting it.
Getting the legs straight can be a pain if you have massive OCD like I do. You won't be able to fit this tripod in your pockets so keep that in mind. I bought this because I don't have a tripod for my camera and I thought it would be fun to wrap it around trees and strange places, carry it around without a problem, or even use it as a normal tripod. I will go out on a roadtrip with my friends and I think it would be cool to record some cool adventures. I hope this gorillapod can come in handy during the roadtrip.
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone! All the way from a video blogger to a regular guy that wants to take some cool shots. I believe that if you're dealing with cameras, having this gorillapod is a must! It can help you in so many ways to get a perfect film or photo.
I used to have the smaller version of this pod but it couldn't handle my mirrorless camera + I believe it didn't last much. With this bigger and better pod I feel invincible! I love it and I hope you love it too!
If you have any more questions about this product, please don't hesitate on asking me and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
I hope you enjoy your purchase!
Take your time and use common sense when mounting you camera somewhere because the tripod won't defile gravity.
It's easier to vlog on the go when you have this setup. Give a thumbs up if this review was helpful!
Even more annoying then the cracked cups is that I cannot find replacement cups.
When I noticed the cracks I thought "oh no problem I bet they sell individual replacements" As far as I can tell, No they don't.
Would rate at 4 stars if replacement cups were available. Becuase aside from that its what I wanted it to be.
The Bad News
I purchased it because I needed a compact tripod that is light and easy to carry. What’s more, I needed a reliable stand to hold my SLR during my photography work. I read several Amazon reviews that praised the JOBY for its literal and figurative flexibility. According to those reviews, the SLR Zoom could easily handle the weight of my Canon 7D and 28-135mm zoom lens. Now I hate to say it, but those reviews were wrong. The SLR ZOOM cannot handle 4 pounds of weight, which is the 7D camera body and zoom lens combined. This was really disappointing to me. Here is a direct quote from JOBY: “The GorillaPod SLR Zoom can fiercely secure equipment up to 6.6 lbs.” I think that is a little misleading. Perhaps there is some kind of wacky leg configuration that I don’t know about. But I posed this GorillaPod in numerous ways and I just don’t feel confident setting up a shot and walking away from my expensive camera.
Here Comes The Good News
I purchased this item in September of 2015. It is now 2017 and I still use it every day. After reading my previous section, that probably makes no sense, right? Let me explain. After I realized that I could not use the SLR ZOOM with my Canon 7D, I decided to use it with my iPhone and Nikon Coolpix, which are both compact and lightweight. That is where this product really shines. It is perfect for holding compact devices. You simply need to purchase an adapter. If you don’t understand what I’m talking about, simply do a search on Amazon for “smartphone tripod mount.” You will figure it out immediately. You have probably seen these adapters connected to selfie sticks. If you have a selfie stick, simply unscrew the adapter, which holds your smartphone or compact camera, and pop it on your SLR ZOOM. Like I said before, I use this thing every day. For example, I have an iPhone 5 and I hate using it for selfies. However, when I want to take a photo of my wife and I, I simply connect my iPhone to the SLR ZOOM and I can position the rig anywhere. Here are places that I have used to set up group photos: a tabletop, the back of a chair, a chain-link fence, a tree branch and even the top rung of a 12-foot ladder. Use your imagination and set your camera’s timer. So far, I have taken the SLR ZOOM to Canada, Mexico, Japan, Spain and Australia. It’s well built and the legs are still pretty tight. They’ll probably get a little looser if you use it every day like I do. I really give my SLR ZOOM a beating and toss it everywhere. I think it’s worth the $43.99 that I paid in 2015.
The Bottom Line
I wish I could give this product five-stars. However, it does not live it up to its promise of carrying 6 pounds of weight. But I still love the product because it works really well for smartphone photography. It is very well constructed, the octopus legs can grab on to almost anything and the high quality ballhead makes shot set up a breeze. It’s a little pricey, but this tripod is a solid investment, which should outlive your next two smartphone upgrades.
