This is a great idea. A tripod with segmented legs that you can just bend into the position you want.

It has some major advantages over a normal mini tripod.

The main one for me is that it copes effortlessly with uneven surfaces that would make another tripod unstable. And you can squeeze it easily into awkward shaped places.

It will, to some extent, cling to branches and things if you wrap the legs around them. But while slightly rubbery, there isn't enough grip to hold it steady on, say, a vertical post.

There's a tiny adapter that you can screw onto your camera and leave there. Then your camera slots onto the tripod in a second. Very slick.

The gorillapod weighs almost nothing and it's tiny, so you can put it in your shirt pocket.

There aren't really any downsides,except that you should know this version is only for really small cameras like the Canon Ixus. Anything bigger will be too heavy (there are bigger gorillapods for bigger cameras).

I wholeheartedly recommend it.

I purchased this for use with my digital video recorder which is a pistol grip design (i.e. you hold it like a gun). The design meant it was impossible to set up and film without someone holding it, so thought this tripod might be a good investment.

Very pleased with it, it's very easy to use, works well with my camera and video camera, and has allowed me to position them both in locations a person or other tripod couldn't get to (e.g. in a tree). For the price you can't really go wrong, and if in time the joints become too loose I'll just replace it with a new one.

I bought this for a present for a person with a large digital camera.
Unfortunately this is to small for those but it did suite my wife's small compact perfectly.
She loves it as it allows her to use the timer when with her friends so she can be in the picture as well.
I am sure she will alos find other uses for it in time.
So just be careful although it says original it will not cop with anything other than smallish camera's over than that a good little thing.

i've used this a lot, it is smaller than i expected and sometimes the legs drop off when positioning but i just pop them back in. only suitable for something light like the Gopro Session.

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Handy little gadget BUT would recommend NOT keeping the fitting screwed in, as it damages the camera case when putting the camera away/taking the camera out again.

Pretty surprised how small this is, but will hold iphone 5 and Gopro Camera rock solid, exactly what I purchased it for.
