While there's nothing wrong with the product, the gorillapod is from an old stock. The manufacturing date showed Feb 2015, which was disappointing. This issue was flagged by others who bought before me, however I chose to ignore it thinking that this old stock would have been exhausted. However, it seems this guy has lots of this stock!
Haven't used and tested in a variety of conditions but from what I've seen so far is it's very sturdy and built well. There's ball mount and bubble level, easy to mount and take off. Small and light weight.,.
This transforms a simple Gorillapod into a tripod to be reckoned with! It's movement is extremely smooth and efficient, can take a bump or two with no problem and the level meter means that you're assured of a level shot! Great product, great addition to my camera!
Baseplate fits snug and stays secure for extended periods of time
