Camcorder

Camera

Camera:
"I would not recommend using the camera shoe mount underwater as the screw will rust."
_
"And by small camera, I mean SMALL- camera cost about $60.Second, the top part that the camera actually attaches to just broke off out of nowhere from the rest of the body."
_
"I would be extremely angry if it broke with a more expensive camera on it."
_
"The only drawback is that it only holds the camera in landscape orientation."
_
"My one complaint is that if you mount a heavy camera or device to the tripod it not very sturdy."
_
"I bought this tripod specifically because it said it can support cameras up to 11.5 ounces and it would support my Sony RX100 (8.5 ounces).Unfortunately for me, I learned you get what you pay for."
_
"For my original point and shoot camera it was great, but now that I have gone up to DSLR's it can't hold the weight."
_
"Use this to hold our son's baby camera, works great"
_
"Works really well for point and shoot cameras."
_
"This far exceeded my expectations -- both my Sony Bloggie and my Sony camera fit perfectly and securely."
_
"Great idea for those of us that still use cameras."

Clip

Clip:
"My only complaint is the quick release clip is a tad flimsy unless you bust out a coin or tool to tighten it down."
_
"Did not have a locking ring (to prevent pushing of the quick release clip) and the legs seemed very flimsy, much less firm than my old one."
_
"The only problem I could see is that with the mounting clip attached to the camera I can't put the camera in the fitted Canon carrying case that I have for the SD600."
_
"This is a very fun and useful stand, but the clip mechanism is not secure."
_
"The clip works well, but make sure the lock is engaged or the clip (and camera) might fall from the slot."
_
"(really great for making video clips of yourself when you do not have a second person to hold the camera) so you can be your own one -man (or women) camera team :-)."
_
"The removable clips are a nice touch though I have to unscrew them anyway when putting my camera in its case."

Color

Color:
"They sent me the WRONG color and the product is manufactured so poorly it barely holds my small camera in place when my previously purchased Joby had no problem doing."
_
"The color is great too."
_
"Adjustable, 'climbable' clingable, wrapable... lots of 'ables' And the color is graet."
_
"Now there are fun colors available so I got lime green."
_
"I've seen these at local retailers, but I appreciate the easy to open packaging and the nice colors to choose from."
_
"Fantastic device in cool colors."

DSLR

DSLR:
"Seems too small and flimsy, would never put a DSLR on it."
_
"Unfortunately though, the DSLR was too heavy for this model."
_
"Thought I get this after reading the other reviews, this is definitely too flimsy for a semi-pro dslr, but seems to work ok on a compact camera."
_
"Great idea but too weak to hold the DSLR."
_
"Do NOT buy this for a DSLR or you will be disappointed."
_
"For my original point and shoot camera it was great, but now that I have gone up to DSLR's it can't hold the weight."
_
"Not advised to support big SLR or DSLR cameras, this tripod is perfect for smaller point-and-shoot cameras."
_
"I used this with my dslr with a couple big lenses and it has worked very well."
_
"i'm using this gorrillapod everyday was little dissapointed in its size wish it was little bigger well its good for my digi cams couldnt hold the weight of my dslr cameras though but so good anyways"
_
"Great idea but too weak to hold the DSLR."

Design

Design:
"It's a little flimsy but it is by design."
_
"The only drawback I can see from a design standpoint is the optional to press somethig and have the legs straighten out automatically for those I need a straight shot in the next 5 seconds pose."
_
"But the design works well for it's intended purpose."
_
"I am just fall in love with this tiny, cute design of tripod that you can even place it on the bars, or anywhere you can put it with its legs binding."
_
"The build quality is good, and the only pitfall in design I can find is with the screw that holds the camera to the base."
_
"It can even somewhat hold the Nex-7 with the 55-210 lens (22.4oz total, well beyond the design intention), if balanced correctly on a flat surface."
_
"Great buy and good design for the money."

Fit

Fit:
"I intended to buy a GorillaPod to hold my Speedlite off camera, but this is the wrong one (too small, and doesn't fit the GorillaPod hybrid flash shoe adapter)."
_
"Was very hard to make the iPhone fit it."
_
"It will fit any camera just fine, but it is too weak to hold a larger camera like a SLR, even with the smallest lens."
_
"So as a product, I think it's good, but in terms of it being fit for my purpose, it wasn't good enough."
_
"This flexible tripod works great for smaller fitting places or just inconvenient spots too small for a regular sized tripod."
_
"But after reviewing all my pictures and noticing my husband and I have very little pictures together, so I made up my mind, and bougght this wonderful tripod, it is really nice, not only it is cute but also very light and easy to carry (it fits in my camera bag."
_
"Easy to fit in your pocket, pack, etc."
_
"This far exceeded my expectations -- both my Sony Bloggie and my Sony camera fit perfectly and securely."
_
"It fits well into a bag or even a pocket, so it is not a huge item that needs to be carried around."
_
"The set up was easy and fit the monitor perfectly."
_
"Really nice fit, not quite as strong as I would like for my Canon G12 camera but I'm still happy with it."

Flexibility

Flexibility:
"The flexibility in positioning does not make up for the ease of use and easy leveling of a regular tripod."
_
"I love the flexibility of my Gorillapod - it holds my point-and-shoot camera at an infinite number of strange angles and on a wide range of uneven surfaces."
_
"I liked this product for its flexibility but it didn't hold my camera so it didn't work for me but I held it to use it with my small camera."
_
"I was very please with its versatility and flexibility recently when I was at a high school basketball game (I am a reporter) and I was Tweeting photos of the game court side table and needed the camera to be higher."
_
"Love the flexibility of this tripod."
_
"And I love the flexibility."

Flexible

Flexible:
"Seems the flexible feet only last so long, then they broke."
_
"It takes much less time to set this up on weird surfaces than my other mini flexible tripod."
_
"The hate part comes from the fact that since it's so flexible the parts just pop right off and after awhile they stop popping back into place."
_
"The Gorillapod is sturdy, flexible, and is so simply easy to use."
_
"I have been using this tripod for the last week and it is proving to be flexible and durable."

Handle

Handle:
"lightweight and easy to handle, anxious to try it out."
_
"I have one and got this one for a gift - everyone has thought it was a great idea - a handle for small cameras as well as a tripod for selfies! "
_
"I also used the same combo for my husband's iphone5 and his otterbox case -- the 4s case is much more bulky and the camera is heavier and still this GorillaPod handles it very well."
_
"very handy, used it on the handle bar of my snowmobile, work well, just a finger to hold it steady."
_
"It can't handle much weight, but it stays quite nicely."

Heavy

Heavy:
"My one complaint is that if you mount a heavy camera or device to the tripod it not very sturdy."
_
"Unfortunately though, the DSLR was too heavy for this model."
_
"Works really well even with a relatively heavy point and shoot that we have."

Image

Image:
"We got some beautiful pics of us together that we would not have been able to without it."
_
"It works great to either take a still picture so the camera stays still in a hard to place angle, or to take a photo with your timer of yourself and spouse on vacation, or for a group photo when you are always the one left out."
_
"Greatly decreases the chances of missing a photo op as long as you have this silent friend with you."
_
"I spent the summer hiking the Appalachian Trail solo and wanted a tripod so I would still be able to take photos of myself without every photo looking like a selfie."
_
"It also worked well to let us capture images of ourselves that didn't look like selfies."
_
"This seems super cheap but combined with a good camera it takes pics that I thought only professionals could do."
_
"This little tripod actually arrived pretty quickly from MZ Photo - only it was a counterfeit copy of the Joby Goriillapod made by another company."
_
"I would definitely recommend this as an addition to your photo gear! "

Level

Level:
"It was hard to tell when it was level and if I finally did get it level it would fall over or tilt, etc."
_
"It's better for the night shots than the panorama because keeping the camera level while panning it isn't really easy, particularly when the tripod is wrapped around something at an odd angle, but it's still easier than hand held."
_
"The only downside is that there is no way to tell how level the camera is to the ground."
_
"The only real complaint is that it's actually harder to use on a flat level surface, since this requires lining up all three legs to just the right height."
_
"It's hard to get it level sometimes....on it's own legs."
_
"I bought another brand from Fry's for the same price that works good and has a set clamp to keep the camera level and straight and it has a built in level to tell you when you are level from side to side and front to back."
_
"No matter what angle I'm using it in - with the possible exception of straight up in a perfectly balanced, level position - the camera tips right over."
_
"My concerns were unfounded and the Gorillapod holds the camera securely and level without any problem...just make sure that 2 of the 3 legs are located under the more heavily weighted side of the camera."
_
"This is just as versatile although it is more difficult to wrap around objects because of it's smaller size (but that is to be expected).It would be nice to have a level on this but I am not going to knock it for not having one - I knew it didn't when I purchased it."
_
"The Joby Gorillapod is great for when you want to take pictures and you don't have a level surface to balance your camera on."

Light

Light:
"However, being as light as it is has it drawbacks."
_
"It's light and compact enough to not be a nuisance so you should be able to take this with you everywhere."
_
"the tripod is very light so can thold itYou can move the legs but ot s horrible - impossible to find the centerNot formr"
_
"But after reviewing all my pictures and noticing my husband and I have very little pictures together, so I made up my mind, and bougght this wonderful tripod, it is really nice, not only it is cute but also very light and easy to carry (it fits in my camera bag."
_
"Really easy and light to carry around everywhere."
_
"It made my pictures turn out beautifully because I could angle it in whatever way best captured the light and the products I was taking pictures of."

_
"Good tripod for a light digital camera in small areas."
_
"Light, small, and easy to pack."

Monitor

Monitor:
"I purchased it for my Angel Care baby monitor because we lowered my son's mattress and could no longer see him on the monitor as this type of monitor unfortunately does not allow you to adjust the angles very well."
_
"We attached the tripod to our monitor and our problems were solved!"
_
"I attached the monitor on the crib out of reach and have yet to see any damage to our crib (which was not an inexpensive purchase either) I am very happy with the gorillapod and would recommend it to anyone who had purchased the same monitor and has run into the problem of not being able to see your babe while sleeping."
_
"Shipping was fast, installing my monitor on the tripod was easy and took literally about 3 minutes."
_
"Great for my Angelcare baby monitor"
_
"The set up was easy and fit the monitor perfectly."
_
"We purchased this tripod to hold our Angel Care Baby Monitor to our son's crib and it has worked perfectly!"

Mount

Mount:
"I would not recommend using the camera shoe mount underwater as the screw will rust."
_
"My one complaint is that if you mount a heavy camera or device to the tripod it not very sturdy."
_
"The mount is flimsy."
_
"After playing with this tripod on railings and table ledges, the legs work well after a little fiddling, but the ball in socket joint immediately under the camera mount is just too weak to hold my camera straight."
_
"I bought this for my GoPro since sometimes it is hard to find a way to mount the GoPro to something since you can't use a mount or normal tripod."
_
"Another problem is how it connects to the camera mount."
_
"Also, the removable mount is pretty handy."
_
"This thing is pretty cool but you can't mount a gopro to this model sooo now I have to return it."
_
"Works as a normal tripod, or one to rap around a fence pole or tree.. endless uses for this cute little tripod I got this for my gopro, and had to get the tripod mount for the gopro as well, but that was less than $3.00 extra."
_
"Pros:-Can hold my point and shoot (Canon ELPH 100 HS) upright and onto posts or poles while I am doing time delay shots-1 4-20 mount works on every camera I have tried-Works well for time lapse shots on my Sony Action Cam tooCons-one of the joints cracked after a year so."

Packaging:
"Unfortunately, I destroyed the plastic packaging it came in, now I feel like I'm stuck with a 3-legged piece of s***."
_
"One of the legs broke off as I was taking it out of the packaging."
_
"I have received Turaeybod is broken from the top of one of the columns with the knowledge that the packaging in excellent condition had not been subjected to any fall"
_
"The packaging was horrible and the English on the package was incorrect."
_
"I was not happy with the company sending the tripod in the packaging without directions."
_

Photo:
"We like to take group photos and I am never able to get in them."

_
"Also great for couples who travel and want photos of both people! "
_
"I have taken it all over and captured some fantastic group photos."

Plastic

Plastic:
"Unfortunately, I destroyed the plastic packaging it came in, now I feel like I'm stuck with a 3-legged piece of s***."
_
"The little ball-joints pop out and some of the plastic broke, after just a few uses."
_
"It can only hold about 1 3 the weight of the real one and the rubber is mostly plastic, so it has terrible grip."
_
"The knock-off comes in a flat box, is made from flimsy plastic, and barley holds its shape when you move the legs around."
_
"However, within a few minutes of adjusting the stand, one of the legs broke off leaving me with a useless pile of plastic that cost me 20$!"
_
"Unfortunately all the parts are plastic and have no lubrication to allow them to move smoothly."
_
"Unfortunately all the parts are plastic and have no lubrication to allow them to move smoothly."
_
"Cheap plastic and breaks easily."
_
"But it's so flimsy and easily broken that I can't recommend it for climbing, hiking, biking, or any use in which the legs might inadvertently be bent too far or pulled out (it only takes a little pressure to ruin a joint).If it were a generic product made in China and sold for $5, I'd probably give it a four-star review for good price - but at $25, it's an overpriced piece of plastic that doesn't last."
_
"It's ingenuity at its best, and a wonderful use of plastic."
_
"Trees are no problem at all, and I can even get it to stay easily on a vertical plastic pole."

Point-and-shoot

Point-and-shoot:
"If you have anything larger than a little pocket-sized point-and-shoot, I wouldn't recommend this."
_
"But it works perfectly for holding my point-and-shoot pocket-size digital camera, so I'm keeping it."
_
"Not advised to support big SLR or DSLR cameras, this tripod is perfect for smaller point-and-shoot cameras."

"My wife has a new Nikon point-and-shoot camera (DS8200) and this little tripod is perfect for taking delayed shots when she wants to get both of us in the picture, or dim light shots of sunsets, night street scenes and the like."
_
"This one here works much in the same way, but I would only recommend buying for a pocket-sized point-and-shoot camera, like the Canon Elph (if they even still make those)."

"Falls apart but is ieasily snapped back in place, the sliding lock piece isnt stable so din't trust that, I dont know what happened this product used to be great but they are terrible now, cheap crap from china or just maybe the company was sold to some cheapo money grabbers."

"I attached the monitor on the crib out of reach and have yet to see any damage to our crib (which was not an inexpensive purchase either) I am very happy with the gorillapod and would recommend it to anyone who had purchased the same monitor and has run into the problem of not being able to see your babe while sleeping."
_
"If I was buying from a China shop, and paying half the price I did, I would understand and accept what I recieved, but this is unacceptable."
_
"Its alittle flimsy, But not to much can be expected from such a inexpensive product."
_
"I don't know if they've dropped their standards, or if this is a cheap knock-off or what, but this one was absolute junk."

Quality

Quality:
"I like the tripod but the quality is not good."
_
"They sent me a fake gorillapod, it is horrible quality, it is not Joby."
_
"There are other's like this, but theyare not the same quality (our rip-off version broke within five minutes) so pay for a decent tripod."
_
"I read some complaints about the construction quality before I bought it, but I haven't seen any indications of weakness with the amount of stress I put on the joints."
_
"Also this doesnt steadily attach to anything (tried it on a chair) I honestly wouldnt even want my cheap KOdak EasyShare attached to this poor quality hunk of junk."
_
"Great invention, but I wish they used higher quality plastic."
_
"Sometimes it's difficult for a company to ensure 100% perfect quality of its product, but the amazing customer service of Joby made it 100% and gave confidence to its customers."

"Only very minor complaint is the quick release shoe is a little tight to remove but it should loosen up with time."
_
"quick delivery and good quality of the product"

Rubber

Rubber:
"It can only hold about 1 3 the weight of the real one and the rubber is mostly plastic, so it has terrible grip."
_
"It's not even enough to be a complaint, but maybe the linked rubber bearings the legs are made of could have been of a slightly softer type which would grip better."
_
"Don't get me wrong, I love the innovative design of this tripod, and it's ease of use, however, there were times when the rubber grips don't stick as well as you would think."
_
"The rubber feet keep it from sliding or damaging your paint!"
_
"it also has nice rubber grippy feet so it doesn't slide around on smooth surfaces."
_
"Works great as a dash mount --the rubber feet keep video cam steady and cuts vibration too!"
_
"A couple points:-This legs are flimsy and don't grip around an object well because they quickly loose form-The rubber is more plastic-feeling than rubber feeling, so it slips off of something it tries to grip from-The JOBY logo on the release button looks marginally better than something a child could apply with white-out (that was my first clue this was a fake)-The packaging was NOT the OEM plastic packaging, but a cardboard box that didn't look consistent with what would accompany a $50 MSRP piece of injection molded plastic."
_
"The rubber balls gripped nicely and both cameras felt secure in the triop."
_
"With the rubber ends, I could place it on anything pretty much!"

"I did try this with a SLR model I borrowed with equally disappointing results."

"I bought it thinking it would hold my SLR and boy was I wrong!"
_
"Not advised to support big SLR or DSLR cameras, this tripod is perfect for smaller point-and-shoot cameras."
_
"It is not strong enough for an SLR, but it works great for a point and shoot."

Video

Video:

_
"This item is to flimsy to support a small video camera has too much shake should purchase the largest one they make."

"I tested this out on a pole and it did hold up my Bloggie without it drooping at all which is great because the Bloggie takes 4:3 video and 16:9 video but with 16:9 I have to hold the camera sideways."

Weight

Weight:
"This tripod is very small and lightweight, however, also very flimsy."
_
"For how portable and lightweight it is, it is hard to justify not bringing something like this along."
_
"However...the only problem I have with it, and it's an important one, is the weight of the camera didn't seem to be factored into the design."
_
"It's extremely lightweight, I was scared at first that it wouldn't hold my camera, but it does!"
_
"The gorillapod does specify a maximum weight for the camera, but an overt warning against possible damage to camera through a fall is desirable."
_
"This can hardly be considered a fault of the tripod; it is simply the physics of the weight of the camera and the lightness of the tripod, which is really its most attractive feature."
_
"For my original point and shoot camera it was great, but now that I have gone up to DSLR's it can't hold the weight."
_
"It was lightweight, durable, and able to grip on to most surfaces."
_
"Even when I wrap the tripod around a pole or branch, it supports the weight of the camera with no problem."
_
"The Gorillapod holds a pretty decent amount of weight from a camera."
_
"It's very portable and lightweight making it great for overseas travel and hiking where space is limited."

iPhone

iPhone:
"The only problem is that the attachment which holds the iPhone (which did not come with the Gorilla pod so I am using one from my previous tripod) is not the sturdiest."
_
"Was very hard to make the iPhone fit it."
_
"hard to attached to iPhone."
_
"this could not even hold up a 1 2 pound camera it is only double the length of my iphone so it made it hard to even wrap around anything."
_
"Problem: I have an iphone and wanted a tripod."
_
"Make sure you have a good attachment for the iPhone if that's what you will be using because as you know, the iPhone won't directly screw onto the Gorilla pod."
_
"This is really good for keeping iphone up and facing me when working at the desk."
_
"Might work for a smaller camera though but if it can't hold an the weight of an iphone, which is pretty light, what's the point."
_
"I liked it, It's good for my iPhone, but from the pictures above I thought it is bigger than that."
_
"Easy to carry around, and enables me to put my iPhone in the craziest places to take pictures."
