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

  BEST COMPACT CAMERA TRIPOD (NOT FOR SLR'S)

| | See all uwcUKuFbuk's reviews (1)

This is a great tripod for compact camera's. I have a Canon Powershot S80 and it holds it very securely. Great for wrapping round brances, poles etc. and uneven surfaces. Don't buy any other tripod, buy this one NOW.

  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.

  Excellent product

An innovative product that is well made. A perfect flexible tripod for holding a pocket digital camera. Don't use this one with an SLR, there's a stronger, more expensive Gorillapod for that job.

I got one of these out of curiosity. I normally only use tripods on my DSLR, but I was interested to see what I could do with my compact. It's a pretty useful piece of kit! Its got a good construction, and although as another reviewer said, it won't hold the weight of an SLR, for those 'compact' moments, its pretty awesome!

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.

Good tripod, however it will not hold the weight of my SLR 400d, but it will hold my casio digital camera.

  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.
