Its a great idea for a product and although I like the look etc, I found that it just is not strong enough to hold my Sony SLR. If you put the camera on top and you aligned the camera centrally it holds well. However if I hang the camera of an edge or put the camera at 90 degrees and expect the Joby to hold, unfortunately it tends to slip/slide form where I want it to be. If the joints were just a little bit stiffer it may hold, I would prefer a way to secure the legs at a set angle and prevent it from moving.

It is a shame as I was looking forward to hanging my camera at silly angles and being creative.

I'd bought the Gorrila Pod SLR version and attached my Pentax K10D and watched it whilt and lean from side to side under the weight of the camera. I would recommend purchasing the SLR ZOOM version for and dSLRs before rushing in for the SLR version as I did.

Very useful piece of kit, and best price I could find was Amazon. Very versatile - grips onto all kinds of places, or simply use as a regular tripod on very uneven surfaces. Handles my Sony A300 DSLR with 75-300mm lens no problem.

I ordered from Amazon themselves and not an unknown seller, as I hear there are cheap, inferior copies around sometimes advertised as genuine Joby Gorillapod.

This is a good tripod.
Before you buy it, however, make sure you find out how heavy the intended camera is (including lenses). This version is designed for cameras and lenses up to 800g, which is less than many modern SLRs.

Its a nice tripod which is infinitely adjustable and that makes it easy to stabilize it can handle the weight my canon 40d with a 300mm f4l lens. The rubberized grips in the legs articulate and are designed to grip onto any surface (or provide more support at ground level) which means i have taken photos with my camera hanging off bridges and lampposts. I found that i often need to provide additional support on metal and wood; it works much better on horizontal than vertical surfaces which diminishes some of its potential. Taking photos on the ground a bean bag is just as useful and easier to setup and carry. I find when i am out and about a monopod is very practical alternative giving just as good a support when out and about. Whilst my gorillapod is mostly used for taking time lapse movies and occasionally mounted in my car for moving shots.Still its always clinging to the outside of my camera bag.

Bought this for £3.99 on eBay from China.... best £3.99 value ever :) No more lugging around a big aluminium tripod -- or leaving it in the car when I could have done with it..... The Gorillapod fits in a pocket for that photo opportunity where YOU want to be in the picture!! It will "fit" virtually anywhere -- a car wing mirror recently! It seems to fascinate everybody who hasn't seen one before. Highly recommended.

I found that I was taking more pictures in low light and i needed more support for long-exposure shots. I started looking for a small tripod and the Gorillapod looked most appropiate!

When I first took the package out the box, the gorillapod looked quite big but once i took it out it wasnt as chunky as i thought. The rubber balls on the legs which makes it flexible are secure yet easy to adjust, and it holds my DSLR with no problems at all. I was taking photos of colour cards so i fixed the Gorillapod to the arm of a chair and hung the camera above the floor. It looked so secure that i wasn't worried about it losing grip at all - the legs were long enough to wrap 2 of them around the chair's arm and the other to pin it upwards in position.

It also fits snugly into my camera bag - I have a Crumpler Pretty Boy Large, and when curled round the Gorillapod fits into the front pouch with enough room to fully close the main flap of the bag.

Overall i am very pleased! Some people say to beware as they don't hold the weight they say they do, but i haven't found anything to support this so far.
Highly recommended to someone looking for a small tripod but aren't willing to put up with the huge equipment.

Well, i've had my eye on this for a long time. After checking Jessops & Argos who were selling the SLR version for around £40, I though i'd look online. Amazon had a MUCH better price. Anyway, on to the product itself...

Portable, Stable, Flexible
The three words i'd use to describe the gorillapod.

The legs are easy to bend yet won't flex under the cameras weight. The plyable head-piece means that once you've got a secure fit, you can move the camera without the need to readjust the legs. One downside however is the lack of a built in spirit level (however, hotshoe spirit levels are quite cheap so i'd buy one of them as well). The overall design feels very durable and resillient. The rubber grips do a great job and there is very little slip.

The great thing about the Gpod is how easy it is to carry. Either rolled up in a ball and kept in a bag or (for people who just want to go out and shoot for a while) wrapped around your arm giving you two hands to shoot when you don't need it. The Gpod does a great job of holding onto nearly anything. Ok, so it can stick to walls as such, but its ability to wrap around a variety of objects or be balanced on nearly any surface make it a great addition to any photographers equipment roster.

Of course, it's small size does restrict it in certain ways. For landscapes and portraits where there isn't a suitable place to set/attach the Gpod, a conventional tri/mono-pod is a better weapon of choice.

In conclusion, umm... buy one! It's not expenisive compared to other conventional tripods and helps open up a new dimention of steady shooting photography!
