Customer Review

on 15 October 2007
I found that I was taking more pictures in low light and i needed more support for long-exposure shots. I started looking for a small tripod and the Gorillapod looked most appropiate!

When I first took the package out the box, the gorillapod looked quite big but once i took it out it wasnt as chunky as i thought. The rubber balls on the legs which makes it flexible are secure yet easy to adjust, and it holds my DSLR with no problems at all. I was taking photos of colour cards so i fixed the Gorillapod to the arm of a chair and hung the camera above the floor. It looked so secure that i wasn't worried about it losing grip at all - the legs were long enough to wrap 2 of them around the chair's arm and the other to pin it upwards in position.

It also fits snugly into my camera bag - I have a Crumpler Pretty Boy Large, and when curled round the Gorillapod fits into the front pouch with enough room to fully close the main flap of the bag.

Overall i am very pleased! Some people say to beware as they don't hold the weight they say they do, but i haven't found anything to support this so far.
Highly recommended to someone looking for a small tripod but aren't willing to put up with the huge equipment.
