    After reading several reviews and because it was recommended by the sales person at Best Buy I went ahead and purchased the gorillapod. It broke after a few uses! I didn't have to chance to wrap the gorilla pod around anything before it broke! And it's too late to return/exchange. What a waste of money!

    If you have a "professional" camera, Do not bother trying to put that on this thing. It's much too heavy. It simply can't hold the weight of a nice lens, This would be great for a tiny point and shoot camera or a go pro or something, but not really for a DSLR type camera.

    I don't recommend this product. The part that screws onto your camera, got super lose and after about 2 weeks of light use of it, it wouldn't hold up the camera at all. Waste of money and too late to return so I recommend getting something more reliable.

    This was the worst 20 I've ever spent. Useless. Honestly, we tried to use this thing like shown on the box, and it slid down, turned around and fell. Get a real tripod.

    I know it says for cameras and camcorders, but I thought it might work with the mount I got for my iPhone. It is not strong enough to balance it.

    Not very strong. My camera weighs less than what they say this thing can handle but it just falls over. I would not recommend this product.

    Needed a tripod for my camcorder that could adapt to hanging on trees and what not. Thing particular one is just too small.

    I understand that this is supposed to be a light weight tripod but it fell apart the moment I wanted to use it.

    The top part started to get loose after the first day of use. Ended up returning for the bigger one and like it better than this one.

    My salesman acted like he knew what he was talking about when he sold me this pod for my new dslr. He's an idiot.

    Not a dependable tripod. One of the side fell off quickly after my first use of this tripod.

    Did not like that my microphone was not stable or any of my dslr. Not professional at all.
