Hey anyone out there used or knows someone who has used the Joby camera stand?

http://www.joby.com/
A guy at works swears by it. Leaves it in the car for emergencies.

Thoughts ?

never have, but it looks like it was made for the lighter P&Ss. doesn't look like it would support much weight.

i saw that but i like a steady platform. for 50usd i think i'll use my monopod which stays in my car.. it's probably me being biased tho. i'd feel real uncomfortable relying on this.

I hear you and my gut says the same thing, but I thought maybe someone had a different opinion, or used it before.

Can't imagine it would work.

There are actually three versions now. The regular Gorillapod, the SLR, and the new SLR Zoom, which claims to support 6.6 lbs - not bad. It's designed for you to mount your own head of choice to it.

I haven't used one but I've heard lots of glowing reviews and few if any negative comments. You can probably find lots of information by searching for "gorillapod" rather than "joby".
