Customer Review

14 June 2017
I bought this Gorillapod together with an Andoer ballhead (reviewed separately). The mini tripod was ok as a table tripod with the camera in landscape mode but, naturally, I suppose, it wanted to topple over when I transferred the weight by moving the camera on the ballhead to portrait mode. I next wrapped the legs of the tripod around an arm of a heavy garden chair. When I mounted the camera the whole thing started to slip slowly - no matter how I tried to tighten the grip of the legs, my camera was just too heavy - even though the total weight including ballhead was below the 3 kg max load advertised. I used a Pentax K3ii plus battery grip and a 16-85 mm lens (weight1.8 kg). The ballhead is less than 400g. Total load 2.2 kg.
I would not want to try it mounted when wrapped around a vertical pole.
