Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Camera

Camera:
"I wouldn't recommend it for anything but a very lightweight action cam or point and shoot, but it works well with those lighter weight items."
_
"I would not recommend it for a camera that has a large lense and can be top heavy."
_
"Not recommended for real cameras"
_
"It holds the camera (Lumix ts5) with out any problems."
_
"It still works, but I am not confident that it would support a camera steadily in its current condition."
_
"The tripod works perfectly for holding my phone or point-and-shoot camera, and the quick-release head is a nice touch."
_
"I've been carrying these for years while out hiking and backpacking since they're very light, fit any camera, and do a decent job of giving you options when you need to steady a camera on a windy summit for a group shot."
_
"The screw mount holds the GoPro camera well, and I've had no issues with it slipping out of any of the formations."
_
"I recently used it to attach the camera to the railing of a cruise ship to get some nice time lapses of he sunset sunrise while at sea."
_

Size

Size:
"If not, I would recommend you get the next Joby size up (SLR version)."
_
"For the same reason, I wouldn't recommend storing this in your pockets, despite it being small enough to do so."
_
"The GorillaPod is rather small, making it hard to wrap around larger objects."
_
"Obviously pretentious pro-am photogs who think wish Lens size = Penis size will not be able to use this mount for their Canon with a 5200mm F14 Prime Lens."
_
"Hard to judge the size, but this is a mini and does joy support much weight."
_
"Would definitely recommend this and or any of the other sizes this company makes if you need it for a larger camera."
_
"I had a smaller one years ago for a very small camera and that worked great, too."
_
"It's a little small but still works good."
_
"It worked great for a bit, but one of the knuckles got a small crack in its side, resulting in that joint to dislocate with any sort of tension."
_
"Awesome tri pod, great for a small camera such as a Go pro."

Tripod

Tripod:
"Not quite as easy as using a full tripod but if you pile up rocks or packs and wrap this around whatever you have it gets the job done."
_
"The legs are decent for wrapping, but don't stand up well as an actual tripod."
_
"However, after a year of using this tripod, one of the legs broke off and is not repairable."
_
"When I brought the legs back together to put the tripod back in my backpack, one of the legs just broke off."
_
"This gets around the problem that the GoPro tripod mount presents by not coming with such a screw and or shoe."
_
"In most cases, this won't be a problem, but it could become an issue if you're using the tripod in a car train plane other moving and vibrating environment."
_
"My one criticism is that that quick-release head, although handy, doesn't lock into the tripod super well."
_
"The tripod works perfectly for holding my phone or point-and-shoot camera, and the quick-release head is a nice touch."
_
"This is great it really allows me to use a tripod in difficult positions."
_
"It is a little stiff, but it is a fun little tripod for the GoPro."
