First, the joints are quite firm, yes it will support the camera fairly well, however when the legs are bent too far from a straight tripod style the leverage will over come the joints and your camera will sag in frustrating ways.
Second, forget framing a shot in a reasonable amount of time. Horizen line off a little bit? Be prepared to fight the above slops and sags while trying to make precision adjustments.
Third, make sure when you buy this that you are not expecting small tripod style behavior. You can't throw this thing down, make a couple of quick leg adjustments and go. You will be screwing around for a good 5 to 10 minutes trying to force it to do what you could have done in less than a minute with a real tripod.
Bonus - the screw that attaches to your camera is a pain to use. It is not fixed to the tripod; it spins freely. Who has a screw driver around all the time to take it on and off? I ended up lightly screwing it on and off by spinning the whole tripod while holding the screw with my thumbnail. This sort of works as you fight the non-slip rubber on the camera and the tripod top. After the frustrations of using it and not getting what I wanted in the shots, fighting to take it on and off the camera can be enough to evoke choice words from the most patient...
Overall this product might be easier to use with a tiny ball-head. Points two and three could hopefully be resolved for the most part but it would cause even more leverage on the legs compounding the observations in point one above. Since I own it I will probably go this route to give it one more shot and update my review if it helps out a lot.
Over all this product works as described, you can hang it off random posts (upto about 2.5" in diameter) and entertain small children. I probably won't use it more than 2 or 3 times in the next couple years for the type of work I do though.
JOBY makes good products and I will give the company a good review. I ordered the ball head, and then I ordered the heavier, larger tripod. I give that rig a 5 star review. So don't be cheap. ( See photo attachment. The one on the right is the one to get.)
My advice, don't get this cheaper, smaller tripod (the one with gray foot pads and gray colored bands.) Buy the bigger, more expensive one and you will be happy. I got the model with metallic links, black bands and black foot balls. Works great. So, JOBY tripods are great, but get one that will support your camera. You'll be glad you spent a few extra bucks.
All of a sudden a couple of weeks back I found that the item has already got a crack at one of the joints. And due to the crack, the ball right below it is loose and the tripod is not as sturdy any more. It is totally disappointing, unacceptable and a bad investment. Now I don't want to put my DSLR on this tripod cause this might not be able to hold it and crash it on the ground.
The item I was sent was either already defective from the beginning or the particular item quality is poor. I bought this after reading through the reviews. Although I found some reviews had similar issues I felt that those would be one-off cases. But seems like I was wrong!!!
I got the Zoom with the ballhead. I have been looking at these tripods for some time and finally decided to buy one. This is one of the best purchases I have made in a while. I highly recommend getting one and here is why. This tripod allows me to do so much and achieve angles and shots that I never could have gotten before without a second person! The make, build, material, fuctionality.......all top notch. The tripod is extremely durable and well built. It is plastic but not a cheap feel, very solid. The gray rings on the joints and the bottoms of the the legs are rubber. This helps with grip like you wouldn't believe. The extra grey rings provide traction when you are using the tripod in grapple mode. The joints are stiff which is a good thing. At first look I thought it was going to be easy flexing and unreliable but it is the opposite, solid stiff flexing and completely reliable. You can adust the legs at each joint! EVERY BALL MOVES! I have found it best to use 2 legs to grapple and the third on the bottom as a stabilizer in a kind of "Y" shape when I need just a little more distance or range than allowed when the 3rd leg is grappeling. The ballhead is a must! You recieve so much more range of motion with it. The ballhead includes a quick release so that the camera can be detached from the tripod with the push of a button. The ballhead also has a slot on one side so you get that much more range of motion for adjusting your camera (see photo). Even better the mounting plate has a level on it so that you can be sure to frame your shot just right. Bonus on bonus, the level is on the mounting plate so if you quick release, the level goes with your camera! I chose the zoom because of the size. The Hybrid looked to small to support the camera and the Focus looked to big/bulky for vlogging. I picked the right one one.....it supports my camera and then some. It is surprisingly comfortable to hold when self shooting.
The tripod can be used to get super low to the ground, wrap entirely around an object, and even grapple widespread (see photos). Experiment with it! You'll be surprised at what you can do and where it can go. Just make sure to protect your camera and always make sure the tripod is set securely before you walk away from it. It can be difficult or rather a hassle to straighten the legs back out but seriously, why? They never have to be straight plus you have a level. Super compact so it can go in my pack without losing gear room.
I am totally happy to add this tripod to my gear. It will be interesting to see where I can grapple for time lapse shots!
For reference to size & weight:
The camera in the photos is a Canon Rebel T6i with 18-55mm kit lens and hood. The stand being grappled is a microphone boom stand.
