Quick points (see below for updates)

PROS: Extreme portability and flexibility

CONS: Not as sturdy as I would like (read update at the end)

BOTTOM-LINE: Ultimate portability and flexibility

The travel/Outdoor pod
----------------------
I think that your level of satisfaction with this "tripod" will depend on your understanding/expectation about what it is for.

I got this pod because I was looking for high flexibility and low weight -I was looking for something that would not get in the way of two key activities: climbing, travelling.

While climbing, I have put this thing around rocks, trees, signs, and even stuck it in snow. It is so small that I have no much problem carrying it with me to the high camps. I can't think of many alternatives to get the same flexibility.

For travelling, this is also extremely useful. I just throw it in a messenger bag along my DSLR (tip: try to avoid camera bags that scream "tourist with expensive DSLR") and it is ready for low light shots, and self-portraits. This last bit is very important as handing your DSLR to strangers has two drawbacks: (1) you don't want to hand your expensive camera to just anyone, (2) 99.99% of people don't know how to handle a DSLR -even in AUTO mode.

What's the catch? Well, it is not quite stable -but I don't think it was never intended to be. I usually take with me a elastic band that secures it to odd things (benches, trees, rocks,..) and that's enough.

One more thing: I doubted between 4 and 5 stars.

Bought specifically to take on holiday... Lightweight and adaptable. Wanted to write this review to say when I opened the pod and ballhead (bought as package) everything moved except the ball and socket part of the ballhead! I searched on the web for others that may have had this problem, and no luck so wrote an email to Joby... they replied, the same day, with a very useful tip... and I quote... "whack it on something hard, don't worry if you break it we will replace it." So I did, and it did the trick I now have a very moveable joint at the top which tightens solid by using the screw. Only one downside I've found with my gorillapod, is its height... this can sometimes be a bit limiting, but it means you've got to be more inventive with your shots!

One of the joints cracked slightly on first use which was ok because this didn't really affect the tripod much. Worked well until a year later when a different joint cracked which made the leg not stand up properly. Very disappointed as it is just outside warranty and no reply from customer service. I would expect a lot more durability from such a recognised brand.

Received item 4 days ago. Have used it with a Canon 60D with battery grip (2 batteries installed), EFS 18-200 mm. lens + lens hood and 580 EX II flash unit (total mass 2.350kg/5lbs.). Used to take low level photographs of fungi and various other plants, mounted on tree branches to take nature photographs. First impressions - delivery excellent, unit in original packaging, assembly of Pod and Ball Head relatively easy. Camera mount (plastic) appears to be rather light weight for anticipated tasks as does the grip unit on the ball head (plastic) - wait and see. Wonder about the value of 'spirit level' which is hidden underneath the camera body/battery grip and when considering the potential uses for this item in unusual positions on fences, tree branches or on the ground. Works well once set up and does support all the above items - important to have one of the legs under the lens to prevent tipping over. Takes some time to reach a stability when pressing any of the buttons/dials on the camera - solution is to make all the required settings, leave to settle and then use either a remote control or the 10 seconds self-timer - 2 second self-timer is too short a period to allow combined units to settle leading to 'camera shake'. Easy to carry and so far has enabled me to obtain good photographs in situations - location and or low light levels - that would otherwise be difficult if not impossible. Looking forward to making more use of this unit in the future.

I have a Nikon D5100 with both the standard 18 - 55mm lens and the extended 55 - 200mm lens. I put the longer lens on the camera and attached it to the tripod and wrapped it sideways around the arm of my garden chair and positioned the camera to be upright. it was a little flddly to get all the articulations into place as obviously once in place you don't want it to slide out of place so they are a little stiff. What I can say is that the camera just sat there happily and did not move at all. It was held in place really firmly. The biggest downside is that is is small but I guess that is the idea, a tripod for on the move that will pretty much fit in or on anywhere and hold a pretty heavy camera in place. It fits just right into my camera case too. I must admit I think it was well worth the money and think it is a great addition to anyone's camera accessories.
