      Comments about Joby Gorillatorch Switchback:

      Bought this for an extended camping trip aroun the US. It provides great even light in my tent and the tripod grips the one and only central pole in my tent - especially handy as there are no hanging points available. It works well as a headtorch too - good bright light and the red LEDs are useful for preserving night vision. The tripod does work with a camera too, but only really works well with a small point and shoot, as it can't support the weight of anything bigger.
