A little over a year ago I purchased a Joby Gorillapod at my local BestBuy. At the time, the purchase price was $129. I will go through the pros and cons of using the Gorillapod and if it was actually worth the amount that I paid for it.
At first, I noticed that the camera would be on an angle after a few minutes of filming, at first I thought that I had not locked down the ball head on the tripod, I was wrong.
It eventually got to the point where the legs of the Gorillapod would no longer support the weight of my Canon T6i and became very unstable and I was not able to put my DSLR with any confidence.
Is it Worth it?
Very simply, NO. For the price that I spend on this product, I would have expected it to last more than a couple of months. I think that I would have been better off investing in a Manfratto tripod which was a similar price.
If you are interested in this product, do your research.
