Arguably, the best feature of this tripod, is the integrated aluminum ballhead - giving you the flexibility to 360 degree panning and 90 degree tilting. The rubberized tightening knob, makes panning and tilting a breeze. A bubble level is provided to give you level shots even without an LCD BacPac or the iPhone app for preview. Adjusting the ballhead truly gives you complete control to frame the perfect shot - every time.
The Action tripod comes with a quick-release clip with a standard 1/4"-20 tripod adapter, allowing you to mount virtually any compact camera along with a GoPro specific quick-release mount. Keep in mind, this is not the same as GoPro's own quick-release system. However, you can purchase GoPro Tripod Mounts , and connect GoPro's quick release tripod mount to GorillaPod's 1/4"-20 mount, giving you the ability to quickly switch between GoPro quick-release mounts.
Due to it's versatility, the GorillaPod Action Tripod gets my approval - and I believe it is an essential part of any amateur or professional GoPro users kit.
