abunda_amazon_reviews Everything was well until I left the pod inside my car in the hot heat. The heat baked the pod and now the legs are loose no matter how much I twist them tight. It is still loose and useless now. Give a bad review just because of that alone.;;Reviewed in the United States on June 7, 2018;;2.0 out of 5 stars;;Sensitive rubber material;;Tran nguyen;;;First of all, I bought it at BF 2018 Deal price, but I decided to return it just after a day of in-house testing. I have several cameras small and big, lenses small and big, so I tested various combinations. Long story short: It is too expensive for the usage it is good enough for. I think the tripod is worth $40-50. At that price point, I would keep it. It is good to use with a small mirrorless camera, or DSLR like Canon 5D Mark III + 24-105mm lens flat, or lens pointing ~45 degrees up/down on a flat hard surface. Anything more demanding than that, you are risking your gear. Would I use it with a 100mm focal length lens for a long exposure: NO Would I use it with >100mm focal length lens in any orientation (e.g. 70-200): NO Would I risk my gear on an uneven outdoor surface with 24-105mm kind of lens pointing up/down: Mostly no. Would I use it for a super-macro photography: No. I am not saying that the tripod claims more than what it actually can do it, I am saying it is too expensive for its intended purpose. I have a 30$ table top small tripod, that I can pretty much use for the same purpose. This $100+ tripod doesn't let me do anything more than that. Finally I read some reviews (not my personal experience with it), that its legs would give in after being left in car in heat, that would make the tripod useless for me. And finally I found it awkward, that a $100+ tripod didn't even come with a carry bag/pouch, that was disappointing.;;Reviewed in the United States on November 25, 2018;;3.0 out of 5 stars;;Too expensive for what it can do.;;Rakesh Koul;;;I've had my eye on this tripod for quite some time now and I finally decided to pull the trigger and buy it because I wanted a nice tripod for vacation. Let me just say, this thing is SOLID and built like a tank. This is exactly what I was looking for in a tripod. I have a Canon T5i and it handles it just fine. Can't wait to see how many different positions I can get my camera into. UPDATE: 5/10/2016 I've had, and greatly enjoyed this tripod for four months now but tonight I was going over my gear and straightened one of the legs out and all of a sudden, one fell off.

I'm just glad this happened while I was going over my gear and NOT while it was strapped to something. So be aware! Not sure if I will be getting another one of these or not. UPDATE: 5/14/2016 I contacted Joby after it broke and they responded right away the next day with details on how to get a replacement, I assume it helps that it was still under warranty.
