With a tripod that could hang from things or be stable on uneven surfaces, I was hoping to get some interesting shots! But unfortunately, it seems unless your camera's tripod hole is centered (or close to it) on the bottom of your camera, the tripod won't stay standing.
I have a very small Sony camera (listed as a recommended product below); its weight is listed as 7.1 oz. on its Best Buy page. The packaging for this tripod says it can hold cameras weighing up to 11.5 oz. My camera is well within the weight range, but because the tripod hole in on the left side rather than centered, the tripod wouldn't stay standing, not even on my desk.
It's not worth risking my camera, so it's going back to the store.

Great little tripod
Posted by: photofreak from: on
A great tripod to carry around, since it is so light and small, yet still very useful. it isn't for heavy cameras (like the bigger point and shoots) but works great for small, light cameras.

I use the gorillapod for my flipcam. It's handy to set up anywhere and holds sturdy even in wind gusts. I would buy another one for my camera or other video accessories in a heartbeat. It's not the easiest thing to store, but it's flexible enough that you can fit it in most bags. Overall, I would highly recommend the product to anyone. If they took the time to make it an excellent product, by offering different materials or a better storage option, then I would give it 5 stars.

Great new product!

This flexible mini-tripod is wonderful! Great for use in unusual places, like uneven surfaces. You can easily wrap it around a tree limb, or set it up for a shot on a mountain trail or hillside.
Very good price (around $20-25) for a "must-have" for all photographers!

This was a great purchase. I now use it all the time. It is very easy to set up and to use and my picture quality didn't diminish because my camera was set up on the tripod.

I just received my gorilla pod a few days ago and haven't really had the chance to experiment with it aside from playing around with it in my house. It seems as though this product will be really useful when trying to capture those memorable moments without leaving anyone out. It's very lightweight and compact and will probably be able to grip on to anything. Even if i didn't receive this for free with my digital camera purchase I would buy it anyways.

I bought this stand for my SLR camera, however, theres an old saying that reading is fundamental. I ended up purchasing the wrong size. My SLR is to heavy for this stand. I got lucky because my wife has a smaller camera and she was able to use the stand without any problems. The stand works perfect. I love to wrap it around items and be more creative with angles while taking pictures. Be very careful when purchasing the item. Make sure that it is the right stand for the camera that you have. I have purchased the correct gorillapod Tripod for my SLR. Great product. Well worth the price.

Great product when out hiking to use anywhere

Perfect to steady camera to shoot better photos regardless of terrain. Easy to use and just clamp around arm or hiking pack until needed.
