Bought this as a Christmas gift for my family and they absolutely loved it. It is incredibly convenient for all settings and purposes. The added bonus is that it can support both regular cameras and cameraphones of just about any type. As of now I have no complaints, the product has lived up to its reputation of being completely dependable. Phones can slip out of the stand if you don't take the time to make sure it is firmly adjusted, however this is just a reminder to be careful more than anything. Very satisfied with this purchase.

I was planning to use these holders to record video/timelapse with my cell phone(s). They do a pretty good job, but are super light and with big phones can be pretty top heavy (can blow over easily in the wind). Also, the holder doesn't grip as tight as I'd like, nothing has fallen out, but not a very reassuring hold. Lastly, if your volume or power buttons are on the side like many phones today, you have to position it accordingly and can get side heavy to go along with the top heavy.

Does not fit iphone 6S with protective case

Comments about Joby GripTight Gorillapod Stand for Smartphones (Black/Charcoal):

Just returned this to B&H. The clamp is too small that my iphone 6S with a protective case didn't fit. I think this is really a poor engineeing decision that it is not wider.

Comments about Joby GripTight Gorillapod Stand for Smartphones (Black/Charcoal):

I travel globally on a regular basis and this product is compact, versatile and rugged. I priced shopped the product locally and on the internet. B&H has this product priced 50% less than the nearest competitor! The sales rep was knowledgeable and efficient. I was told that FREE shipping would take 5-7 business days. Instead of a week, it shipped the same day and arrived in three days (including the day I placed the order)! Great value, service and delivery - I would definitely recommend this product and B&H!

Bought this for my friend for upcoming Mother's Day gift, cause she saw mine a couple of years ago, and couldn't stop playing with it, (bending and twisting the legs, etc). She has an iPhone, I have an old Samsung S4.

Comments about Joby GripTight Gorillapod Stand for Smartphones (Black/Charcoal):

I use this to video practice golf swings to show to my coach and observe whether or not Im doing what Im supposed to. This is a very handy little tool to get it done. Very lightweight and compact. Holds phone tight. Very flexible legs. And pretty sturdy. Best part is the neck is flexible enough to do portrait mode which I prefer for the swing video. Only thing that would make it even better is if it had a remote.

Comments about Joby GripTight Gorillapod Stand for Smartphones (Black/Charcoal):

This is THE mini-tripod and clamp solution for your smaller smartphone. Well-made, durable yet easy to pack and carry in your jacket. Clamp can also be used on any standard tripod. It is very unobtrusive in use. With a Bluetooth remote you can get into the shot too! Buy it - you won't be sorry. Free shipping got it here in five days!

Loose Mount

By Devan

from Undisclosed

Comments about Joby GripTight Gorillapod Stand for Smartphones (Black/Charcoal):

The tripod would be great if the mount didn't have the amount of play it does. I bought this to use as a tripod and as a grip for my phone while doing viddo, but the amount of play that causes the mount to move means I probably won't be using the tripod as a grip like I had hoped. This might also be an issue for things like time-lapses. If it weren't for the play, I'd probably give this four or five stars.

HANDY ON THE GO!

By Jimmy B

Comments about Joby GripTight Gorillapod Stand for Smartphones (Black/Charcoal):

I purchased this for capturing time lapses with my iPhone6. It does what it was designed for, although i wish the "grip tight" gripped a little tighter. I like how the mount does lock into place on to the gorilla pod. The "fingers" themselves grab exceedingly well beyond my expectations.

Nice lightweight tripod

By Jeff

Verified Buyer

Comments about Joby GripTight Gorillapod Stand for Smartphones (Black/Charcoal):

does what you need - holds either a smartphone or a conventional camera - using either the standard screw for the latter or a secure clamp device for the phone. Weighs almost nothing but looks to be well made.

Very good but not perfect

By Albert@Yale

from New Haven - CT

Verified Buyer

Comments about Joby GripTight Gorillapod Stand for Smartphones (Black/Charcoal):

Very good for holding phones in many different position.
Rubberized bottom of legs are very useful to be more tight and avoid excessive sledding...
Parts are quite resistant but it might break under excessive weight (i.e. into a backpack).
Head-holder is good but there is nothing to really lock tight the device, so in case of motion usage or dangerous positions, might be safer to use a stripe of tape.

    I use this to video things like off roading in my jeep. It is very flexible and holds well. If I did it again I would probably spend more and get the bigger one though. Either way you will not be disappointed.

        I do love this little tripod/phonecamera attachment. I use it mostly to take video and set up self-shots. It's stable, adjustable, portable, and inexpensive! I wish it had smoother position adjustment, but I could get that with an upscale model from Joby. Great for phones!

        Comments about Joby GripTight Gorillapod Stand for Smartphones (Black/Charcoal):

        This is a nice supplement for taking pictures and videos instead of my tripod but the ring around the neck that serves as a lock/unlock feature was too flimsy it was broken when I tried it. I don't know if I did it or it was just the way it is. It does still serve its purpose though so I decided to just keep it instead of going through the hassle of returning it. This will prove useful for taking pictures and videos particularly this summer season for vacation and camping.

          Gorilapod has been excellent thus far. It's an actual Joby product like displayed, unlike other websites that claim to be and it isn't. Definitely recommend purchasing it!

          Comments about Joby GripTight Gorillapod Stand for Smartphones (Black/Charcoal):

          Note that the tripod head unscrews from the legs on a 1/4-20 thread & thus can be used to hold an iPhone or similar on most tripod heads.

          Really, it's two products in one.
