      A great tripod

      This is an excellent tripod for small point and shoot cameras. I use it with my Canon Ixy Digital 20 IS, but it would work well for any small point and shoot camera....Read complete review

      This is an excellent tripod for small point and shoot cameras. I use it with my Canon Ixy Digital 20 IS, but it would work well for any small point and shoot camera. I typically use my Canon for macro photography using ambient light, and it is very useful as I typically have the camera set to ISO 80 which often means long exposures if I'm shooting indoors. I also use it for night photos and landscapes among other things. The way the tripod works allows me to mount it anywhere, even in positions that are traditionally very awkward for other tripods to get the shots I need. This tripod is incredibly stable in any position, even upside down or at an angle or attached to the back of chairs, balls, poles, window-sills, etc. It basically can provide very sturdy support for the camera in any position one chooses. Over the course of owning this, I've learned that sometimes the ball and socket joints can crack at the socket with age. Thankfully, if this happens, Joby will send you a replacement or replacement parts. They are very responsive to these problems. Mine cracked within the first few months of owning it, but since Joby sent me a replacement, I haven't seen the problem in the last five years of heavy, daily use. That said, this breakage is very rare, and I found that pulling the joints apart will also crack them unless the tripod is very new. Thankfully, this does not fall under normal use, so one need not worry about this. The versatility of this tripod make it one of my most favorite tripods, and I highly recommend it. It is light and convenient to use, and I take it everywhere. The quick-mount shoe can be mounted semi-permanently to the camera since it is so thin and well made. My camera fits into its case with the shoe attached. I consider this tripod a must-have.

      Would not buy another

      I wanted a small tripod for my camera's to take with me on back packs, this tripod would not hold up any of my camera's. Nothing good about it except it's color

        Comments about Gorillapod Original Flexible Mini-Tripod (Black/Charcoal):

        I got this tripod for my point & shoot camera (Canon SX260 - 231 g) and it works great with it. So far I used it for table-top close-ups and it is very adjustable yet firm enought to give a stable platform. I especially like the small quick release plate. I also like the light weight, so it's great to take on trips where you want to minimize your equipment (backpacking, bike travel etc.). Note that this is only for light cameras (up to 325 g as per specs). I also can't judge on it's longevity. With that caveat I'll give it 5 stars!

                    This handy compact tripod is perfect for positioning your camera on uneven spots when you are backpacking or underwater. I can position the GorillaPod on a rock or sand, above sea level or below sea level, and it will support every camera I use, from my heavy DSLR to my light GoPro. Just one more multi-purpose item for all my camera venture trips.

                      Solid, durable, lightweight, and strong. This guy is great for bottom floor or table top shots. It doesn't slip either, and the articulating arms make it incredibly flexible. I keep this in my go bag at all times, and when I'm not using it with my camera I'm using it to mount my Zoom H6 to nice hidden spots to help capture great audio.

                            Like other customers, I use this for traveling as a lightweight solution where it would be otherwise risky to balance my point and shoot camera. I really like how the legs are adjustable in many ways and how the camera is securely attached. Each leg goes into position tightly so you never feel like it will give out. The number of creative positions you can do is really a nice feature. You can fold the legs around poles and branches, etc. It is well constructed and extremely light which makes it perfect for trips both local and far away.

I also use it for night photos and landscapes among other things. The way the tripod works allows me to mount it anywhere, even in positions that are traditionally very awkward for other tripods to get the shots I need. This tripod is incredibly stable in any position, even upside down or at an angle or attached to the back of chairs, balls, poles, window-sills, etc. It basically can provide very sturdy support for the camera in any position one chooses. Over the course of owning this, I've learned that sometimes the ball and socket joints can crack at the socket with age. Thankfully, if this happens, Joby will send you a replacement or replacement parts. They are very responsive to these problems. Mine cracked within the first few months of owning it, but since Joby sent me a replacement, I haven't seen the problem in the last five years of heavy, daily use. That said, this breakage is very rare, and I found that pulling the joints apart will also crack them unless the tripod is very new. Thankfully, this does not fall under normal use, so one need not worry about this. The versatility of this tripod make it one of my most favorite tripods, and I highly recommend it. It is light and convenient to use, and I take it everywhere. The quick-mount shoe can be mounted semi-permanently to the camera since it is so thin and well made. My camera fits into its case with the shoe attached. I consider this tripod a must-have.

                              Purchased this for my 8 year old nephew. He loves it with his nikon point and shoot, its just right for him to learn with.

                                I bought this little tripod mostly to use with my GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition and my other GoPro cameras to shoot time lapse photography and video. This tripod provides a steady and very mobile solution to get my camera low to the ground or anywhere for that matter while remaining steady and safe. Great buy!
