Bought this to chuck in my rucksack when I didn't fancy carrying a full tripod around. I also intend to use this abroad for obligatory low-light city shots as I don't like the thought of taking my 055XProB on an aeroplane... Not only is it small, it can wrap around itself to fit into smallish spaces, and for the amount of weight it can carry it weighs almost nothing.Overall, I think this is a really nice piece of kit. It takes some practice to get it set up- and more than a little faith the first few times you attach a camera- but once securely wrapped around a solid object it doesn't sag.However, on some surfaces it can slide and so in addition to wrapping the legs around it also helps to secure one against an upright to keep the pod from slipping. I also think that some surfaces are probably too wide to give the gorillapod maximum security- I like to get the legs wrapped around several times and so would avoid anything above a couple of inches in diametre. When setting it up on the top of a post as opposed to wrapped around then it gets more stable...I also think that a suitable Ballhead is essential- I can't imagine trying to position the gorillapod inthe most secure position while also keeping the camera platform level. I use a 496RC2 on mine and they suit each other very well. It comes supplied with a handy thread-converter for the very purpose of attaching a wide range of tripod heads.Ultimately, the proof is in the pudding. I left the Gorillapod attached to a bannister rail sideways for two days with my 450D and Sigma 30 f1.4 attached to the 496RC2 and it didn't budge at all. Using it I can get some cheeky low-light shots that I would otherwise need several kilos of tripod for, and I can use it to set up self-timed shots of myself when out and about. That is good enough for me.

Unfortunately this product does not 'do what it says on the tin'. I found it to be hopelessly unsteady and effectively a complete waste of time and money.

Superb piece of kit, small and lightweight, yet incredibly sturdy.
Really useful piece of kit.

Gorillapod can be used just about anywhere.Have tried using it with slr and 70-300mm zoom lens, really stable. Will be easier to align camera when I get an adjustable head fitted.

Excellent Portable tripod
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
Great for long exposures and landscapes when you are travelling. Also great for quick pictures as much faster to fix/mount this than your full size tripod. Really needs a ball head adapter to get best use out of this (the Joby one is great)
Just the job!

About Me Professional
An almost excellent product.... On the positive side, it grips well - even on a smooth, tubular surface - I should make clear, however that I was using the gorilla pod to mount a GoPro - well below the 3Kg limit.The one thing that knocked the shine off was the fixing that secured the camera (or other device) to the gorilla pod. It is a flat, thin, slotted screw-head and it makes it awkward adjusting angular position of your camera..
Works well but needs upgrading
Generally, it is a great addition to the 'odds and sods' kit... One thing would make it even better... the securing method needs to be made so that you don't need a screwdriver or coin to adjust it...
just the job
