Group DescriptionThe Gorillapod is a little mini tripod I discovered in the summer of 2006 and immediately fell in love with that beautiful 'creature'. At the end of 2008 the Gorillapod family has four members. Pls. check out joby.com for details on the growing family.
If you need information about the Gorillapod please don't hesitate to join and ask. If you are thinking about buying a Gorillapod SLR Zoom or a Gorillapod Focus don't forget a good tripod head and post your recommendation/feedback to the thread Recommended tripod head for the Gorillapod SLR Zoom or Gorillapod Focus.
What is Gorillapod LOVE good for - How it started
Necessary disclaimer: I am in no way related to the company which produces the Gorillapod.
After some research, well, simply looking for the tag "Gorillapod", I found out that already some Flickr members have posted some funny pictures with the Gorillapod as subject. As everybody is taking pix of cats I thought this group might be a nice alternative :-)
I'd love to see the Gorillapod in usual or unusual working conditions and of course pics made with GP are also welcome. Best is a combination of both :-)

Wow! What a fast reaction from the Gorillapod manufacturer Joby in 2006 because of the creation of Gorillapod LOVE. Melissa Burns from Joby shot this email at me:

We at Joby are very big on customer service, and we hope that everyone has a positive experience with their Gorillapod and with us. That being said, sometimes the Gorillapods do develop very small cracks. This is rare, but it happens. We will replace these units free of charge - no questions asked.
If this happens to you, please send an email with your name, shipping information, phone # and order # (if you ordered from www.joby.com) to info "at" joby.com and someone from our customer support team will assist you immediately.
