JOBBY USELESS GORILLAPOD FOR ME

PREVIOUS / NEXT

HONG KONG by KRISS on 12 february 2017

After a few hours walking around Hong Kong and Hong Kong malls, it’s finally night time and we walk back one last time to the piers.
Now there is a very long queue to get to the winter wonderland and I am happy I am not queuing with them ! When we arrive on the pier there is a large yacht picking up a family with a smaller boat.
Kate points out she’s never seen a yacht that big even in Cannes.
I don’t care, he’s in my way and I’m really freezing now.
I mount the camera on the small Joby Gorilla pod and I try to twist it around one of the fences of the pier.
It kinds of work but then look at the results, it wasn’t sturdy at all.
I have not even artistically pleasing blurry images and I honestly can’t blame the tripod entirely.
I can only say it does not work for me.
I really wish it did because it weights close to nothing and the next best thing is a considerably bigger and heavier tripod (my Mefoto Roadtrip).

But I’ve tried using this gorillapod a few times during this trip and I can never get it the way I want even with a ballhead on top of it.
It’s always kind of moving or I can’t find the right spot to stick it to.
As a result I end up putting it on the ground, guessing what I am framing, unable to access my settings or even check if they are right.
I cannot rate this as a professional tool.

But honestly I wish I could !
