Twist and bend its legs until your heart’s content.
It can be placed, wrapped, twisted round, hooked onto and lodged into all sorts of nooks crannies, awkward places and positions.
Its a tad more discreet that your average photographer type tripod, and nifty for placing on a table, etc without looking like your setting up a film production set.
Its light, and easy to throw in your bag without fear of breakage.
The Gorilla weighs next to nothing.
I couldn’t help having a go with my SLR camera to see if it would hold up. Well it did – just about in a triangular three leg position. Once I tried to twist or manoeuvre it to the side, backward or forward, it promptly collapsed.
There is also an SLR version of the Gorilla if need be.
It has rubber rings on each ball joint meaning that it has a good grip with lots of friction to keep it in place and I feel confident to leave it attached to something without worrying about if I will damage my camera. The ball joints are a bit stiff to use however I feel this is because they want to make sure that it is attached and will not fall off so although it is stiffer than I would like i can see why they have done this .
The legs of the tripod are very flexible and fairly easy to use and put around things (Let's be honest that's its main feature). The "Quick remove" part of the tripod is very secure but can be removed at the press of a button and then is very easy to pull out. On the bottem of tripod is a head of a screw which can be used to tighten the screw to the camera. This screw is fairly easy to tighten with your nails and no major need for a screwdriver to tighten it. This screw is the standard one for the bottem of most tripods however if you own a GoPro you will need an adaptor to hold the GoPro on this tripod as no GoPro adaptor is provided. Be very careful with this part as it is small and easy to lose as I have found out in the past.
It has a very good quality plastic which seems vey durable and is going to survive most of the things you put at it. It is good at both standing on a kitchen table and hanging on a branch. It realy does look cool and I think it looks like a spider crawling on the rocks. At the top it has a ball joint which can rotate meaning it can allways be at a flat angle. This can be locked in place with a simple slide bar at the top. Sadly though the smaller version does not have a spirit level to make sure it is flat but you can hardly knock of points for that. Just don't be fooled the joby gorillapodos size as it is about the size of a hand (15cm long) it's smaller than you might expect (if you want a larger one there are bigger versions available and these can be used with bigger cameras but there is no reason as to why a compact camera cannot be put on top of one. The colour of the model you buy makes no difference to the actual design of the model.
In conclution I would not use this as a replacement for normal tripods but I would use it as a helpful accessory for anyone who likes photographing or making videos. I would trust this device with my camera but be careful not to lose the "Quick release" as it is very small. If you have a GoPro it will not attach straight onto the camera just be careful to make sure you have put the tripod in a safe position so it is sturdy and will not fall of. So what's that question i hear you ask? Is it worth the money? Yes is the answer in my opinion and by the look of the reviews lots of people agree. Joby have really done a good job here if you get one you will not regret it. To sum it up in three words Style, Sturdy and Clever.
It has a nice little quick mount connection on the top so allow you to swap out your equipment quick and easily although to do that you will need to purchase extra mounts to make it extra convenient.
Its ultra flexible legs mean you can put it anywhere and even wrap it round something to fix it in place and any angle.
Its extremely well made too and well take a battering making it great for outdoor use as well as indoor.
For what it is its a pretty decent price and as I said at the start I highly recommend it.
If you have any further questions please ask away and I will answer
So keep it for your smartphone and be assured it will easily fit in your pocket and is so light you won't know you are carrying it.
