    Around Singapore $100. I find it a good deal given i like taking landscapes at weird angles.

    That is not easy to achieve unless the individual joints have very high friction, but if that is the case, then it will make shaping the legs very difficult. Without a separate tightening feature (not sure if that is even possible) I would really take the 3kg rating with a pinch of salt.

    You might want to check with the manufacturer what they really mean by the 3kg rating.

    2 more weeks yeapps, I'm having my polytechnics MST/projects rush and work commitments outside.

    Anyway if I'm not wrong a few CS-ers have the earlier version. The one i ordered is the SLR-Zoom one, supposed to be suitable for heavier setups.

    This is what I have read from Digital Photo on Dec Issue :

    The legs of the Gorillapod are made up of ball
    and socket joints so you can mould them into a
    variety of shapes, and even wrap it around
    objects. The trouble is, it doesn't offer the
    rigidity needed for the SLR it claims to support.
    We tried it with a Nikon D70 (not the heaviest
    SLR around) and there was a lot of residual
    bounce and vibration from the Gorillapod's
    structure. You can just about get round this by
    waiting for it to settle down using a 10secs self-
    timer,but this is far from ideal. Also, when
    wrapped round an object, the weight of the
    camera tended to pull it downwards, making it
    annoying to use. It fared much better with a
    compact, but at 40, it's very expensive.

    Ok i got mine already and since I do not have a DSLR with me at the moment (my is always borrowed from +evenstar) so I used it with a a95.

    It's alright I guess when used with a prosumer, the rigidity is there. But for SLR, I'm not very sure. Have tried it in a variety of positions, but in all, it held firm.

    Cheers.
