    good but not great

    The leg gripping design is not user-friendly, I also don't like the way it feels when I'm holding it. If you're on a budget and don't plan on holding anything big this will work fine. If you can wait, save a bit and move up the food change on these things I would advise going that route. I needed one of these in a pinch and went with this but it did not last long and went to a more user-friendly but expensive model. The "bolt" leg design works but they're better designs. It is built well, grips the equipment once attached and the head adjustments are easy to do and also hold well.

    It does the job

    It does what it’s supposed to. It grips things and make it easier to place my GoPro in different places and such. However, my only issue is I can’t find a screw that fits perfectly into the screw hole to connect my GoPro to it. I feel like I have to force it a lot to get it to fit. It’s a very tight fit screw. I pray I don’t strip the threads each time I use it. If they never strip, I don’t mind that it is tough, but until I know, I’m going to take it easy. But it does do what it’s supposed to do and is a very nice versatile stand!

    Most adaptable tripod ever!

    I often need to use a tripod when I take long zoom shots but the terrain doesn’t always lend itself to using a traditional tripod or monopod. With the articulated tripod, I can wrap it around a signpost, fencepost, car window frame (as I did for the eagle pic) or almost anything to set up the tripod and get the perfect shot. I’m very happy with this product.

    Broke after first use

    A screw broke off (due to the weight of my iPhone). The JOBY - GripTight Mount PRO Holder for Smartphone got damaged as well (screw got stuck​) Since more than two weeks since purchase passed, I was not able to return it and the manufacturer does not get back to me. Terrible quality and worse customer service.

    Junk

    After reading loads of reviews I was convinced this was a good deal! Wrong! It's horrible at best. I put a tiny camera on it and all it does is slip and fall to it's lowest position. I have $3 versions I got on eBay that are so much stronger than this thing. Looks cool but it just flat out stinks! Taking it back! I want a refund.

    I’ve had about three tripods for my vlogging and this is by far the best one ! Being able to move the tripod legs to any way you want literally! If you need to be shifted to the side or any angle this is the tripod to go to ! It’s very helpful with the camera angles

    At first I bought this as a Christmas wrap up/joke, but the person loved it! He's a camera snob and has all the high end stuff but its perfect, not too big and not costly and very easy to use. I would definitely recommend this portable and flexible tripod for your camera.

    These are sturdy and flexible at the same time. I use one to hold up my recorder when doing a podcast. I bought this one because it was a little beefier to hold a camera.

    My husband has not used the tripod yet, but purchased this package bundle for the device that allows you to attach your GoPro to a stick. He used it daily throughout a two-week trip and it worked really well!

    The targus grupton pro tripod works great for me. I am able to hold my camera and not look awkward. I can also set up my camera for pictures or videos. It’s a great Tripod for content creators who are just starting out.

    When you first look at this stand it makes you think will it hold up to the challenges. I have been very surprised on how well this stand has held up. I have hung it in a tree, set it on top of things and even just use it as a selfie stick

    This tripod is great for propping up the camera or simply for holding while walking around. I love it and and happy with the purchase. Very easy to attach camera by simply turning it like a screw.

    Good for GoPro, Not good for DSLR

    Bought this because I needed a tripod for my DSLR for vlogging. It's good quality however not enough strength to hold a DSLR. It simply collapses from the weight. This would be perfect for a GoPro however.

    This is my first purchase of a mini tripod and do find it challenging sometimes to balance my canon 7D mkII camera with some of the heavier lenses. I probably should have expected that.

    Built like a tank. Kind of heavy. Very versatile. A little too big but gets the job done. I use it for still wide angle video. Best Buy had best price when I purchased.

    If you record and upload videos to Youtube, or any other site; this is great. You can get at any angle you need by screwing your webcam to it. It's a perfect table top tripod.

    I bought this for my JVC camcorder. I actually took it to the store to see if it fits. Thankfully its a universal fit. I just wished it would go higher.

    Recently bought this for my Nikon and it does what it’s meant to do. Definitely a wise investment if you’re just getting into using these attachments.
