  • Really Cheap, Really Great

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Nice and big. Much bigger compared to the smallest one that is available. Could fit in your pocket, might feel a bit awkward though.

    - Stiff joints for now. Since it is not Joby brand, I would not be shocked if it got weak over time.

    - Looks just like the real thing by Joby at a fraction of the cost.

    Cons:

    - Not on-brand, would not be shocked if the joints got weak over time.

    - Instantly, I can feel they are not as stiff as my Joby-branded DSLR-Zoom version; altohugh that one is meant for much heavier cameras

    OtherThoughts:

    Bottomline:

    I own a small Joby one, the SLR-zoom Joby one, and then this one. It fits right in with the family and was actually the cheapest one of the bunch. Does its job, and is super useful. Would not hesitate to get one of these if you take any sort of serious photographs.
