Flexible joints allow Gorillapod to wrap around fences, tree branches, etc.

    First off I must say ever since the original Gorillapod came out I thought they were useless. They seemed flimsy and cheap and would never be able to hold up a 'real' camera.

    Let me say I was wrong. This thing is a beast. It EASILY holds my full frame Canon with my 70-200 f4 L lens, among others. The other night I was able to wrap it around a post and do some long exposure night photography. It fits in the bottom of my camera bag and weighs less than a pound. After using this I even bought their smaller model for my GoPro.

    If you travel a lot, and don't want to bring a tripod but need it less than 1% of the time, this is for you.

    Without going into the purposes of why I bought the Gorillapod, I'll start with what the shortcomings were.1) the legs IMO aren't quite long enough to secure the pod to anything larger than say the diameter of your forearm (as a reference). Still very useful for creative angles and positions other pods can't allow for on small tree limbs, chair legs, fence post, etc.If they were just a little longer I think it would allow for a larger wrap giving more stability for DSLR cameras.2) the base plate keeps rotating on the camera body making it difficult to use the built in level. I have to continuously re-tighten the base plate screw. These are built for DSLR camera's, not going to bother me if it has a larger base plate so that it doesn't rotate. 3) its a chore to get all the legs straight again after you wrap the flexible legs around something. There are so many joints on the legs that each one has to be re-straightened - not a quick fix but what else can be done to flexible bendable legs?I do like the product however, it is sturdy for stationery shots, allows for angles you normally couldn't have, very lightweight so it can go with you anywhere. It scuffs up extremely easy[...]I've used mine on one occasion and it has already lost a lot of the coating on all of the gray rubber bumpers up and down the legs.

      Comments about Joby Gorillapod SLR-Zoom Flexible Mini Tripod w/ BH1-01EN Ball Head:

      The gorilla pod slr-zoom is an excellent addition to my equipment. It is stable enough to hold my Nikon D7100 with an 18-105 lens, and obviously has no problems with the smaller prime lenses. The ball head is very easy to use and also fits onto my old, but stable full-size tripod. I highly recommend the product.

            This is the best Gorilla Pod yet. Study as hell. I love the ball joint tightening knob on side & the built in level. I went with this model over the 2 smaller ones so I could have just that much more height for nature shots. Great for photographing moving water low on a river bank. Heavy enough for larger DSLR cameras.

                    This product is easy to carry and allows to steady the camera for slow shutter speed night photography. The ball head allows great flexibility with ease.
                    I use this mini tripod with a point and shoot camera as well as with my DSLR, the performance is great with either camera.
                    The mini tripod easily wraps around a diversity of objects. It also works on a table or on the ground.

                    The bubble level is useful during the day, not as useful at night because I can't see it well.

                      I bought this for outdoor macro work. It's light to carry and adapts to uneven ground. The base plate could be a bit bigger; with my Nikon DS5100 it's a bit hard to see what the level has to say.

                      This tripod has been awesome. Compact, lightweight, and so versatile. Build quality is great, and having the built in level on the mounting bracket is super handy. Overall it's been a really solid performer and I love that it packs so well in my backpack or my messenger bag. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a versatile, and well made mini tripod for a DSLR or mirrorless camera.

                                Sorry for the head line but this thing does reminds me of Robbie every time I look at it. Punishing humor aside, this is the most versatile table top tripod I have used. It's ability to wrap around and grip limbs, fence posts, couch and chair backs, light stands and more things than I can remember at this time make this as handy as an extra pair of hands for a photographer. I got this to use with my Canon G16 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and was pleased to discover it will work acceptably with my Canon EOS SL1 with the kit lens and my 50 Macro. Makes a good background light stand as well. I keep finding new uses for it. Read the specs for its weight limit respect that and you will find it very useful.

                                    This is a great tripod for the money. Lightweight, small, durable, and holds my Nikon DSLR perfectly.

                                      Bought it cos I can't/don't want to lug a tripod around on trips, but am missing out on many shots ... especially landscape scenery where I'd like to have a low ISO to reduce grain, and lower speed + aperture to blur out water movement. Also, recently acquired a 105mm F/2.8G Micro, which made having a stable cam even more important. Primarily used with D7000. Am satisfied that it can hold the weight of the 2. Plus it is good for family-selfies.

                                        Works like a champ. Don' know how could be anymore functional. I recommend this unit to one and all. Simple and easy to use. Really strong. I expect to be using it for a long time.

                                        This is a good tripod for those of us with superzoom (bridge) cameras who want a bit of support at the long zoom. That the tripod is rated for more weight means it's even more stable for lighter cameras.One thing I had hoped, and was able to do with the display model, but can't do with the new one that arrived at home, is to open the screw just a bit and use it for panning.It would be great if Joby would add a separate screw to losen just the pan head rather than the whole ball head, for panning.

                                            I bought this tripod to serve as my "travel pod." I can throw it in my car, backpack, or carry it on a plane. It does exactly what it says it does. I find it comes in pretty handy for those sunset or long exposure shots. The flexing and wrapping feature, which I thought might turn out to be gimmicky, has proven quite useful and effective. My one qualm is that on occasion the ball head has a hard time supporting my main camera (Sony NEX 6) when I set the pod up vertically. That is to say that the head will rotate slightly and settle once it has the weight where it wants it. This can make it a little hard to get the exact shot one wants, but it can be worked around.

                                            Versatile tripod to carry around with you. If you are using a full frame camera the weight of lens and camera can be difficult for the mini tripod.
                                            Still with some adjustments it works
