Joby Gorillapod Flexible Mini-Tripod/Grip for Point & Shoot Cameras - Grey/Black

You Pay: $14.48

The Joby Gorillapod is an ultra-versatile mini-tripod that can be used with lightweight compact cameras. Its three multi-segmented flexible legs can be formed to grip almost any protrusion, be it a branch, doorknob, rock, or uneven surface.

Each of the joints can bend and rotate 360°, to wrap around objects. The bottom rubber segment on the legs are larger to allow it to be used in the traditional way.

A mini quick release system allows for fast set-up and removal.

    This crazy little gadget is a very handy tool! So many times you could use a tripod, but who wants to drag around a clunky heavy one? With this light weight little guy, you can carry it with you in your jacket pocket or wrap it around your belt loop, etc. It can be used as a standard tabletop tripod, or on any uneven surface, or wrapped around the nearest tree branch, railing, or whatever you can find. My twin daughters and their friends just love to film themselves acting silly then upload it on the web. When I noticed that someone was always left out holding the camera and how shaky the videos sometimes were, I decided to get them a tripod for Christmas, but I wasn't sure if they would carry one around. However, when I found this little gadget, I knew it was just the thing! It works with digital cameras and well as small digital camcorders. They just love it and so do I. Just watch out that you don't pinch your fingers when bending the legs around.

    Small Gorillapod Almost Useless

    If your small camera has the tripod mounting socket located near or on it's outer bottom edge (not centered) you will probably find that the unbalanced weight of the camera will cause the Gorillapod to be unable to support it. The Gorillapod is simply not tight enough to handle this job. I also have the large Gorillapod for my SLR's and that one works just fine for that purpose.

    What a wonderful little tool to use with your point and shoot camera. Just because it's small doesn't mean it performs "small."

          Used it out of the box to shoot a demo video for our daughter's application for HGTV... works great as a tripod or with the legs scrunched together as a handle to hold the camera.

          I have used this tripod on a tree, in the water, and on a skateboard, it is great for the Go Pro cameras and regular DSLR. In independent film, it is good to have options...

            Comments about Gorillapod Flexible Mini-Tripod/Grip for Point & Shoot Cameras - Grey/Black:

            I am a professional videographer from the US and I am currently filming Safaris in Zimbabwe, Africa. I bought this product for use with my Hero3 Black edition GoPro cameras which I use for second and third camera angles to supplement my main camera. It works nicely when I want to attach the GoPro to a thick and steady, solid tree limb or a similar stationary object, as it wraps around tree limbs nicely and hangs on well. However, it does not serve as a good tripod on a table, wooden deck or roll bars of trucks, handrails or anything else that could potentially move or vibrate even the slightest bit. It picks up vibrations and resonates them exponentially, giving my GoPro footage a severe "earthquake look", rendering it totally unusable. The Hero 3 black editions are very very light, so for any camera weighing more, the problem would be much worse. The only application in which this product would work for video, would be when used on a stationary solid object in a situation with absolutely no chance of movement or vibration from footsteps, wind, or any other source. It's just not very practical for video.

                    This is my first gorillapod and I think it is great. Just make sure you tighten it around your base (chair, railing, etc) before you snap your picture. THe first time, I was using the self timer, clicked the shutter.... I didn't have it tight enough and I got 3 pictures of the floor........it just flipped right over. Now, it's wonderful. I can finally be in the picture:) Thinking about getting one for my big camera!!

                          Very easy to accommodate to any surface or situation. Materials are a bit low quality and it seems that in time it will loosen up. But, for a $ tripod, is what you can expect.

                                Bought this for the Canon G12 and was afraid that it wouldn't be sturdy enough given that the camera weight is above the stated max. capacity of the tripod.
                                Works great anyway.

                                Comments about Gorillapod Flexible Mini-Tripod/Grip for Point & Shoot Cameras - Grey/Black:

                                I use this tripod with a Contour camera fitted with a universal mount. I've recorded with the Gorillapod wrapped around a microphone on a mic stand, standing up on irregular surfaces, at angles, and even hanging from a ceiling fruit basket. I find it to be surprisingly stable.

                                Only question I have is how long until the tab that connects to the camera will last - it is thing plastic.

                                  My Gorillapod works perfectly with my Nikon S6200 point and shoot camera! It has helped me photograph foods at many odd angles without my having to be a contorsionist!
                                  The size is great and fits easily into my carryall bag that I use for travel.

                                        I am an owner of a Gorillapod SLR Zoom and I am very pleased with this junior version! Bought it for my compact point and shoot camera and it works like a charm! Fully flexible and grips on almost any surface! Highly recommended if you need flexibility or feeling creative as to where to place your camera!

                                              Use only with the lightest cameras. There is a lock to get the tripod shoe off that is really hard to see/find. Look at the instructions.
