    I have purchased Gorillapod wanna-be's... don't bother. They fail in comparison mainly due to construction and materials used.

    This little original magnetic baby is great for the pocket video cameras (Flip, Bloggie, Kodak Zi8 or your point and shoot. It's great for the "let's take a picture of us" pic when nobody else is around.

    One great use I found was taking video of my poor tennis technique. Wrap it around the fence or stick it to the tennis court light pole and you have a great pod for your video critique. And it holds tight, even in a semi-heavy wind.

    You need a video blog entry from somewhere besides your boring desk? Go out and stick this to a light post. Vlog away!

    I was planning on using this to mount a flash off camera. The first time I tried to use it, one of the legs fell off. The only way to solve this problem was to place some glue into the slot where the leg is inserted. It was an easy fix. The biggest problem is that the tripod was unstable when holding a flash which weighed near the maximum weight that is specified of 11.5 oz.

    Comments about Joby Gorillapod Magnetic (Black):

    This is an excellent, lightweight, versatile tripod. It wraps around stationary objects, clings to ferrous objects and provides a stable platform for lightweight compact cameras. I recommend it. Some have said that the individual led nodes pop out on occasion; this is no problem...just pop them back in and you are good to go.

      Comments about Joby Gorillapod Magnetic (Black):

      Used in conjunction with Joby Griptight mount. This allows me to use my Samsung Galaxy S4 as a still and movie camera in a shake free mode.
      Item grips to branches, trees or other similar items and will attached by its feet magnets to the car, refrigerator or other steel surfaces.
      Haven't found any negative aspects! Highly recommended. I encourage potential Australian buyers to use this suppler.

        Comments about Joby Gorillapod Magnetic (Black):

        Several great thing about this tripod; it is very light weight, small, and has magnetic feet. I'm am about to go on a trip to Japan and anticipate using it with a new compact camera to take photos of my hosts during meals, parties etc. It will be a joy to stow in a waist-pack, or small carry luggage as I travel around the country-side. I love the fact that it has a camera mount that easily mounts/unmounts from the tripod. If it were bigger/heavy it would be not so mobile.

              Comments about Joby Gorillapod Magnetic (Black):

              I have a Galaxy Note 2 and due to the size, it was difficult to find a bracket & tripod system to use for mobile device photography. This tripod & Joby plate used together fixed this issue for me. The magnets hold fairly well (I wouldn't trust the magnetic feature suspended above a hard surface (in case the tripod starts to slide) - otherwise this unit solved a problem for me, especially since I have my cellphone camera with me all the time with or without a DSLR system.

                          I'm using it both with a pocket size camera and an SLR (although I don't trust it to hold the SLR magnetically).

                              It can be wrapped around anything reasonably sized and holds like crazy. I put it on top of my car and it snapped onto the steel and permitted Christmas light photos I couldn't get with a tripod on muddy ground.

                              I purchased this tripod for a camera at my work and loved it so I purchased one to use for my camera. It is not nearly as easy to setup and adjust as many other tripods but, it's a great tripod to have because you can secure it to just about anything.

                                My camera weighs 5.2 oz. This tripod stuck to the strip of metal that finishes corners of drywall with my camera on it, stretched out as far as I could get it to. In an earthquake, it might fall off, but for ad hoc video or timer shots, it's perfect. The magnetic feet are rubberized and stick to nonferrous surfaces at respectable angles. It's also easy to wrap around objects, metal or not. I would like a bubble level clip for it, I'll have to find out if the SLR one is compatible.

                                  Can hang it from anywhere. Would like it about 3-4" taller.

                                      Easy to use, stable and most of all, versatile, this product is excellent choice for my travel P&S camera. Magnets are helping to setup the camera in the most awkward places for unusual POVs.
