    Sufficient but not revolutionary
    I have had my Gorillapod SLR for only a couple of days and have used it just once. I bought it for use with a Canon 300D with my 17-40mm lens. (Total weight on this setup is unofficially 2.6 lbs.--unfortunately appearing to be .1 lbs. over the maximum weight specified by Joby. But, for my purposes, I'm considering that close enough.) Given this weight, my heavier telephoto lens is out of the question. Of course, I knew that prior to my purchase.

    Here are my initial thoughts/tips:

    - Make sure you do not associate any of the regular Gorillapod's "demo" photos on Joby's website with the SLR version's--or at least pay close attention to the SLR "demo" photos. Specifically, around poles and trees, you will want the legs to wrap fully around the object. Anything less will lack the necessary strength/grip. This point is self-explanatory in the photos but I personally didn't examine them close enough and I did sort of mix "demo" photos in my mind when building my...

    Very light duty, but very versatile. It is what it is.
    Over-all, I like this product, and it's working well for me, immediately.
    However, I take these product evaluations seriously, so there are some things a prospective buyer should know:

    It may be a tad "ambitious" to name this the "SLR" version.
    Personally, I would not use this on an SLR, unless you have a really light and cheap one.
    Do yourself a favor, if you want this kind of tripod, and plan to use it on an SLR, get the next model up. The "SLR ZOOM",
    whether you're using a long lens or not.

    This one is appropriate for a "point-n-shoot". Very sturdy for that application.

    I'm using it mainly with a Samsung TL500 which is a pretty heavy compact cam at close to 400g (just under a pound).
    I wouldn't trust it with anything heavier.

    It has one obvious problem, so lets get that out of the way.
    I was amazed that the quick-mount plate is a loose and sloppy fit.
    At the premium price Joby asks for it's product, I...
