Great with my Lumix FZ8 – Flexible Joints Camera Tripod (Mid) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
You really can't go wrong at this price. Astonishing Gorillapod clone looks just like the "original" and though smaller than I thought it would be, it is fine with my Lumix FZ8 (though wouldn't trust it with heavy teleconverter). If they bring out a copy of the SLR Zoom Gorillapod , I'm first in the queue!
Cons:
Durability of the non slip rubber will be a factor - if this wears quickly then the whole thing becomes useless. But it seems very well made and I'll post back later to let you all know how it is standing up to use.
Other:
Quick release locking mechanism works well, with rotating safety ring to prevent accidents.
Bottomline:
Its a no brainer - get one!
