The Original Gorillapod is the lightest and most versatile camera tripod available today. Featuring over two dozen flexible leg joints that bend and rotate, the Gorillapod will firmly secure your compact digital camera to virtually any surface - anywhere and everywhere!

The Gorillapod is the ideal camera accessory for photographers on the go. Throw it in your pocket or backpack and you'll be ready for your next adventure! While the Gorillapod serves all the functions of a traditional camera tripod - steadying your camera under low-light conditions, taking timed group shots, etc. - it is the only tripod malleable enough to provide you with the perfect shot while wrapped around a tree branch, hanging from a pole, or perched on a jagged rock. The possibilities are endless!

 It only deisgned for compact cameras!

There is another stronger version for SLRs which costs a bit more....unfair to criticise it for not doing something it was never designed to do. Very clever little gadget.

 Best Tripod ever!!!

Awesome tripod, it's so versatile it's amazing. No need for a flat surface to use the Gorilla pod it'll rest your camera on the most uneven of surfaces and you can even wrap it around a tree branch or a bit of barbed wire if there is no where else to balance it. If you're looking for a tripod that you can use to take pictures almost anywhere this is it.

 Sounds too good to be true, and it is.

I bought this for use with compact cameras. I have two, a cannon Powershot A630 and Panasonic TZ5. The Canon is quite a hefty piece of kit, but with a central tripod socket so as long as I keep the balance central and don't lean the tripod at all, then it manages okay. So it's good for wrapping the legs round a horzontal branch or rail. Once off centre, gravity kicks in and it starts to tilt and lean and cannot support the Canon.
The Panasonic TZ5 is a smaller, lighter camera than the Canon, but the tripod socket is at the side of the camera base. So the tripod NEVER holds this camera well. I dare say I could carefully balance the camera at a weird angle and it would hold, but that's no use to me!
Instead, I bought a cheap mini-tripod with rigid legs and use that much more than the more expensive and "clever" Joby.
If the leg articulation was lockable, this would be a must-have piece of kit. As it is, it's a neat curiosity that may or may not prove useful.

 very handy n smart little device

I used gorilla pod with both of my cameras(one of them heavier than standard compact camera) and it did the job perfectly,you can position your camera almost everywhere,I'm very happy I got one of them and will strongly recommend
