The best tripod...ever!,
This review is from: Joby GorillaPod Magnetic Tripod for Compact Cameras - Black/Red (Electronics)
Tthe original Gorillapod was outstanding, and this is one step above. At first I was dubious if the magnetic feet could hold my camera horizontally, although it was within the weight limit stated by Joby. I am very pleased to report that the Gorillapod can hold my rather sizeable camera (the Samsung WB550) with ease. The magnetic feet are not just a novelty, and come in handy at the most surprising times.
If you have never had a Gorillapod before, they are an absolute must. It will hold your camera in very awkward places for that interesting shot. It's also really useful if you want to take photos at night, or to be included in the group shot. I replaced my original Gorillapod with the magnetic version because I had used it so much (over a period of 2 years) that one of the legs came off. The magnetic version is brilliant and the strong magnets in the feet are perfect.
To top it off the seller was brilliant and the item came very quickly (ordered on Sunday, arrived Tuesday). Also much cheaper than Joby are offering (especially including the extortionate delivery costs). If you are looking for a tripod, it would be very difficult to do better than this.
