Advantages: Can be used on any surface, easy to transport about
Disadvantages: Can't think of any
I received this as a present after asking for a small tripod for my compact digital camera that would be lightweight and easily transportable. When I first saw it I thought, that's a great idea! Now I'll be able to stand my camera on all kinds of uneven surfaces without it toppling over. I quickly discovered that not only can I now stand my camera on any surface, but I can also hang it from things such as branches too!
The fact that the legs are bendy and moveable is great as it enables you to ensure your camera is stable on the most uneven of surfaces. The legs are really bendy too, which enables you to wrap them around things as well.
They are very sturdy and the gorillapod has very hard wearing so far and has survived being stuffed into a back pack on several holidays now. I haven't been particularly careful in my transportation of it, basically just cramming it into my backpack, which I regularly use to sit on when waiting for buses/trains. The gorillapod has survived all of this which shows it's a pretty hard wearing product! It's very lightweight and due to the fact it's bendy, easily fits into a bag and will bend to the space that you are trying to get it into.
I'm really pleased with the product and would definitely recommend it to amateur photographers over a standard tripod as you can literally put it up anywhere and your camera will be stable and safe.
Summary: Excellent tripod which can be used on any terrain.
