    I have taken this tripod to the beach but have never put it down in the sand. If you want a tripod or camera to last sand is bad anytime. I put it on a boogie board and because it can bend it worked great for low angle shots. It worked very well in grass and was very stable. The x design meaning the shape of an x in the head is not the best design idea in my opinion but it doesn't slip out as long as it is tighten with the top turning nob and you don't have to go crazy tightening it. The only thing you can't do with this tripod head is face the camera looking to far down toward the ground with a heavy lens on it. I don't think it will stay very well. However you can wrap the tripod legs around objects as long as you keep the camera up right. I would not put a heavy camera on it's side 90 degrees for a vertical shot. I would buy and L bracket for that so the camera stays up right. Over all the tripod seems like a good buy just treat it carefully like a new car and it should last for a long time. If my Joby ever has a problem I will add that in this review. I use the this tripod with a Nikon D800 camera and large Tamron lens.

    This tripod is fun and versatile, but the size and weight slightly diminishes the intended advantage of portability that the smaller Gorillapods enjoy. A good price. The ballhead X works as described - smooth operation. I use a Nikon D300 with a variety of heavy lenses and the tripod does the job, although it is difficult to get on the ground sometimes to look through the viewfinder when there is no tree other other thing around to prop it up on. The joints are solid, but of course this means that adjusting them is more difficult.

    That 11.1 lb has to be the max on it's best day. Using a D800 and 14-24 zoom tested the holding power but I pushed pretty hard. In less demanding conditions and maybe with more experience I would expect better results. Still not very experienced with it.

        Comments about Joby Gorillapod Focus/Ballhead X Bundle (Black/Gray):

        First off - the head will accept your existing Arcatech-compatible plates. I use a Kirk L-bracket on my D610 with a grip and it works fine with the Gorillapod ballhead QR. I bought this for shooting cathedral and other interiors on a recent trip to Italy; I knew many places would discourage full-size tripods. The Gorillapod did just fine. Pictures below are 100% crops from a shot in the Doge palace in Venice, a 1/2-second exposure with the Gorillapod placed on a bench, holding a D610, battery grip, Kirk L-bracket, and Nikkor 16-35 f4 lens. (Shot at f16, ISO 800, 22mm) I don't see anything I'd call camera shake. I've used it with my 24-120 f4 and 70-200 f2.8 as well (all with the D610+grip). I've also use this as a "handheld tripod" - put the camera on the Gorillapod, then held the Gorillapod against a wall or column to get a rock-solid shot.Another big plus for the Gorillapod is it fits in my Lowepro Pro Messenger 180 bag. The feet stick out the top, but the Gorilla, D610+grip w/lens, a 2nd lens (e.g. 17-35 f4 or 70-200 f2.8) all fit; or the gorilla, camera w/lens, 17-35 f4 and SB-700 flash all fit.

          I've only used this once at a recent wedding, but I'm so pleased with how lightweight it is, yet adjustable and strong. The wedding reception I photographed this past Saturday didn't allow for me to put up a light stand in a corner of the dance floor, but there was a rafter where I was able to hang it and do the same thing with my off camera flash. Can't wait to put it through some more tests and uses!

          Great Mini Tripod

              I bought this because I wanted a small, ultra-portable tripod that I could take with me when it was too inconvenient to carry a standard tripod. Because of it's short height, it isn't a replacement for a standard tripod, but it is great if you need to get low to the ground, or if portability is an absolute must. The flexible joints seem quite durable. Getting the camera perfectly secure on various surfaces can sometimes require a bit of tinkering, but with practice and patience, it gets easier. It is certainly worth it for being able to capture unique perspectives.

                  The gorillapod works well for my macro shooting. using the adjustable legs and spreading them wide the camera is solid at almost ground level. Using the adjustable legs I've wrapped it around tree trunks to take shots that otherwise could not have been made with the stability of a tripod that I needed. Great product. folding it up it fits in my mini-backpack camera bag. I love this thing!

                  I nearly always have a small (but amazing) Gitzo tripod in my car and when I travel anywhere in the world. Now, in a pinch, I have this with its advantages as well as omissions relative to the trusty Gitzo. This product allows me to perch on vantage points that a conventional tri/monopod cannot be. I was disappointed, however, that it got badly scuffed (between the legs and the ball head) with minimal rubbing against I do not know in a soft bag of shoes (!) over a 6 hour road trip. I hope it will wear better for the remainder of its life.

                    I use this tripod with the full frame canon 6d and the 17-40 and 100mm L series lenses. The gorillapod focus has no problem holding my gear in portrait orientation and allows access to compositions that would be impossible with a standard tripod.

                    The reason I deducted one star is the tripod head loosens up rather quickly and requires an allen key to tighten it back up, often in the middle of a shoot. This is only a mild inconvenience considering the versatility and portability of the product.

                      Have you ever been on a shoot and you wished you had a tripod that moves with you? This is it, this Gorillapod Focus/Ballhead X Bundle by Joby is a wonderful tripod. It bends with any shot you want to take, if you have say a short wall in front of you this will fit on top of that wall with no problem. It carries a camera with a 70-200mm lens with no problems. It's strong and durable. It's easy to clean too. Buying this as a bundle was a great suggestion by the sales rep I'm glad I took the deal.

                          This small but very reliable piece of equipment I would recommend for many situations, the only thing you have to watch for is what kind of lens you will be using on your camera so you buy the right gorillapod to support the weight.

                            I got this try pod for the times when I do not have an assistant to hold my flash . And it has performed very well in that regard but the more I use it the more ways to use it I discover. It hold my full frame camera with a 70-200mm with out any problems . This was money very well spend love the quality and versatility of this product .

                            This is one of those pieces of gear that can do a lot more than advertised. The limits seem to be my own creativity. Mounting in weird places - check. Low angle shots - check. I even occasionally use this as a makeshift shoulder support for video. The ballhead is a must, and I wish it was just a bit easier to position and just a tad better built. All in all, this is an excellent tool that I'm happy to have in my bag of tricks.
