Great idea but has a weakest link – Flexible Joints Camera Tripod Reviews

posted by speiss on 04/05/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Very cheap. Has quick release plate. Very easy to attach.
Cons:
It is small (specially if you have looked some really expensive gorilla-pods in store). Yo can firmly attach it only around smaller objects (maybe less than d=5cm). Even tho three legs provide enough strength to hold smaller cameras (<200grams), there is one more single joint where the camera connect. This is the weak ling and it can barely hold the weight when the item is new.
Other:
Applying some superglue onto weakest link may help.
Bottomline:
Cheap solution for very small cameras and needs some tinkering.
