Re: joby tripod

I've used them... they're quite study, but I wouldn't put my camera up in a tree with it or anything.

You could always fashion a backup safety leash, ie falls out of tree BUT not all the way to the ground.

Re: joby tripod

I've got the Joby Gorilla Pod Focus with the Ballhead X, it works wonders. It's built like a tank, does what it says and can actually fit nicely in the side pocket of my bag. I haven't hung anything from a tree but I have used it for some flower and bug macros. It's nice that I can set all the legs differently to get where I want to be.

Re: joby tripod

I have the second biggest one and have not had it let go. I hung it from a railing 2 floors up at Animal Kingdom lodge in Disney. I would trust it hanging from a tree branch as long as I could hook two legs around the backside of a branch, and then tied them under the branch to the front leg.
I would however recommend the largest size pod. Mine doesn't hold the camera up as well with bigger lenses. It always seems to droop a little. That could have been the ball head I had on it though.
The first shows the view from where it was hooked to the railing.
The second shows the actual railing it was hooked to.

What camera/lens combo would you use it with?
