So what the GorillaPod does it does well. Design is sturdy and you feel confident that it will not fall apart after a few uses. Everybody knows what to expect from this kit so I won't go over the obvious features. For me there is a minor drawback and this is that this magnetic version is more gimmick than useful. The magnets are way to weak to provide you with any confidence (unlike the arms themselves which are more than up to the job). I've tried it on a slew of metallic surfaces and whilst there is undeniably so sort of pull, it's just not enough for me to trust it with my GoPro.
Advice to potential buyers is you're better off going with the vanilla Pod than expecting wonders from the magnets used on this.
