    Amazing tripod for vlogging

    I've recently started vlogging and after purchasing a new camera, I wanted some kind of tripod/stabilizer-type product to use while vlogging and this one's great! The balls make it really effortless to hold...I have small hands, but this is easy to grip with comfort. You can bend the tripod "legs" to fit your needs and it holds VERY well. I've attached it to lampposts/other random objects and never worried about it falling. Once you twist the "legs" around to whatever you're attaching it to, as long as you do it properly and make sure you've got it wrapped firmly, it doesn't move/slip because of the rubber. The bag that came with this is great as well. It fits the tripod, my camera AND my camera accessories (charger, extra batteries) with room to spare. When I'm out vlogging, I actually use it to store my extra camera equipment and it doubles as a "purse" so I only have 1 bag to carry with me. The material is heavy duty as well. The bag slipped off of my shoulder once while all of my equipment, including my camera and cell phone, were inside and everything was safe. There's extra padding that protects whatever you store inside. I haven't tried this yet, but I bet you could put a raw egg inside, drop it from a high distance and the egg would be fine.

    Great Tripod, Oddly-Sized Bag.

    Posted

    The Joby tripod is great, the LowePro bag not so much. I got this for $40, mainly for the tripod (which retails for $50-60 alone). The bag won't get much use. Joby Tripod Pros: - Easy to adjust on uneven terrain (rocks, tree roots, etc.) - Can wrap around objects like railings - Easily supports weight of mid-size DSLR/mirrorless with a medium sized zoom. It may have trouble supporting longer tele-zooms Cons: - Only about 1.5 feet high. Would be nice for Joby to make a hybrid gorilla/standard retractable tripod with a bit more height. LowePro Bag Pros: - Many compartments: 1 zipped main, 2 open sides (for small 16oz bottles, sunglasses, etc), 1 open back (for brochures, etc) 1 zipped front (for cables, pens, etc) and one mesh zip on the underside of the main flap (for lens filters, microfiber cloth, etc) Cons: - TRIPOD DOESN'T FIT IN THE BAG! The bag is deep, seemingly made for long zoom lenses, but not deep enough for the tripod! Plus, you'll have to stack smaller primes to be efficient. - Not enough space for a tablet. My iPad Mini doesn't fit comfortably, it causes the top flap to bulge when zipped.

    Great Combo

    I was looking to purchase a camera bag for my new camera when I saw this combo that included the bag and Joby tripod. Separately these items cost close to or over $50 and I managed to pick up the combo for $50. The bag is plain with plenty of room for a dslr body, multiple lenses and all your chargers, cords and accessories. Brought it on a trip to Asia for 2 weeks it worked perfect, sliding right into my backpack. Haven't had a chance to use the tripod outside of my home, however it seem straight forward. There's a mounting piece with level that screws into your camera. Then you're able to slide it in and out of the tripod. The tripod holds the weight of my Canon 70D with a small lens, but with a larger lens, you have to widen the base or it may tip. The legs seem pretty sturdy and the rubber around the balls are pretty grip well. If you're a beginner like me you'll need both of these items, so you might as well save some $ with this combo.

    I was shopping for just a camera bag when I saw this combo and jumped on it. I was not disappointed. The bag is compartmentalized so it fits my T6i, kit lens, battery pack, Rode Mic and lens caps with extra room left. There are about 5 pockets (some zipper, some not) for things like extra batteries, MCs, etc. The Joby tripod is what sold me since I knew from prior knowledge what a great it is tool for recording pretty much any where. The legs bend well which allow the tripod to hang on to a variety of things. Not only that the tripod is pretty strong and carries my camera and lens well. Great purchase. Only wish I waited a few more weeks to save the extra ten bucks, but I'm happy nonetheless.

    Bought it for the Joby

    I was traveling to Europe and really wanted a flexible tripod. I was planning on just buying the Joby but then when I looked down and realize that I could buy did show me that I was originally going to buy a house so get a free case and it was cheaper I ended up buying this product. Not quite sure why it was cheaper this way but sure was quite a steal. Just combined with my canon remote control allowed me and my fiancé to take a lot of pictures together without having to ask people to take the pictures for us

    Bag is AWESOME - POD is OKAY

    The versatility of the Gorilla Pod is great but the sturdiness of the legs are just okay. I thought they would be a little stiffer/stronger but i guess you'll have to buy the metal Gorilla Pod for that. The bag on the other hand is awesome for my use. I fit my Canon 80D, RODE Video Mic GO, 18-55 lens, 24mm prime lens, camera charger, phone charger, 12,000 MAH portable battery, 10"inch tablet, tin of mints, and If i try hard enough I can get my Gorilla Pod to fit (sticking out ofcourse but it works.) GOOD BUY GOOD DEAL

    Great Small Tripod, Bag a Plus

    For the price it is difficult to find a better option than this GorillaPod if you need something flexible and compact. The tripod holds up my Canon 70D with a Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 lens fairly steady. The legs do start to bend once the leg/ground angle becomes sharp (say <30 degrees). Also the locking plate does have a tendency to loosen up from the camera body over time. The included bag is nothing special, but of excellent quality. Large enough to fit a small-medium dslr with a short attached lens.

    The joby tripod is not the best for dslr but as long as I'm not using a 1dx or with a camera with a grip or a telephoto lens (the white L lenses) it's ok. If I'm using prime lenses like the canon 35mm f2.0 or the canon 50 f1.8 it is still stable. The good thing about it is it can be easily put in a backpack. The Lowepro Format 160 Is just a little bag that serves its purpose. Although for the package price of these two items, I can't resist it. Good price for dslr accessories!
